Most batteries are shipped and sold with a "staple charge" which is generally 65 to 50 percent, though some OEM laptop batteries shipped with a machine can be 100%

Generally you do want to charge the battery, first you would want to do a full charge for 12 to 16 hours to stabilize the SMART circuits that measure charge capacity. But think of the battery like a body in that it needs regular exercise to stay in shape. Good practices are if you plan on storing the battery for long term, store it at about half capacity, and it will lose roughly 10-15% per month. If you always use the laptop plugged in do NOT keep the battery in the system until you plan to use it portably. 100% for too long can actually make the regulators "forget" what empty is and cause you to shut down when you actually still have some juice left. And although it is good to do an occasional deep discharge, do not let the battery get under 20% often, as this will really be the end of good storage.

Need to format my averatec 2100 to factory settings i do not have a recovery cd how?


This works on most Averatec laptops:
Turn your laptop on
press F4 at the Averatec logo.
click on Protec/Recover
click on Phoenix/Recover Pro.
system will restart (15 secs.)
then click on advance.
on the next screen click Factory Restore Point. then follow the prompts, answer yes and then Recover entire drive.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How to upgrade RAM in Averatec 1000?


you need to remove the base. if you can use a screwdriver and are careful you can do the lot.
also to make it easier, before u start dissassembly pop the cd drive and undo the 2 screws attaching the silver plastic cover to the drive.

then take the battery out. be careful when you remove the screws for the screen as when u have the case apart the screen brackets tend to get in the way. the speaker grill comes off in one single part.

you will void any warranty left too!

any questions email me at stug45@gmail.com
also if you have any upto date drivers that you've got somehow can you email me!
im looking for upto date vga, mouse and network.
windows update doesnt have it and i cant read korean to get onto the averatec site. the other site i found was a really didge site. :(

How do I replace the screen on my averatec 3200?


I visit a site frequently calle www.instructables.com. It's an amazing site that shows common people how to do simple and complex things. I found a DIY on how to replace a notebook's LCD screen

http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY---Replace-Broken-Laptop-LCD/

I also found a couple of prices for your the LCD screen. The first one is an ebay auction that actually gives you instructions, too. What's good about this one is that it gives you it specifically for your notebook.
