Averatec laptop AV 3360-HOT

Laptop gets very hot and now power cord does not hold consistant charge/contact with the computer. It is constantly toggling with in the plug in port and going from battery to elcetricity.
Sometimes when it the power source is going back and forth the computer starts opening and closing programs on its own and the cursor moves on its own.
New power cord or new computer? I don't want to loose my information as this is my business computer.

I plugged it up to my PC over night to charge and it wont charge


I would check to make sure that the power cord is plugged into the wall and is making good connection. Use a lamp to test the outlet and make sure it is working. If you eliminate the outlet as a cause of problem, check to make sure that the other end of the cord is plugged solidly into the transformer (the plastic "brick"). If it is, check to see if the transformer gets really hot over time. If it does, it is a problem with the transformer and you should replace it. Check the connection where the power cord plugs into the laptop. It should be plugged in all the way and shouldn't be loose. If you are getting good power to your computer (normally there is an indicator light on the laptop somewhere that tells you when its plugged in), and it just will not hold a charge, It may be time for a new battery. You can contact your computer's manufacturer for replacement batteries and chargers.

No power no display


If your laptop won't power on or stay on for long then follow these quick and easy steps to troubleshoot the problem.
  1. Ensure your battery is holding a charge. Some laptops will automatically shut-off if the battery won't hold a charge. In that case, replace your battery with a new one and retry. Check your charging lights or indicators to see if your laptop is getting power and charging.
  2. Check your AC to DC converter (the little black adapter you plug in your AC outlet.) This converts AC power into DC power. Is it abnormally hot? If so, it is probably burned out. You will need to replace it. Note: High heat is not a true indicator of malfunctioning. It can be dead and cold as well. No power indicators on your laptop could be a sign of a dead or bad converter also. Converters WILL get hot (this is normal.) If it is REAL hot (burning hot when you touch it), then this is not good.
  3. Check your power cord. Are there any nicks, cuts or kinks? If so, unplug it from the AC power and repair with electrical tape or better yet, replace it. Many computer salvage stores carry power adapter cords. They're cheap and could save you from electrical shock.
  4. Check your laptop lid switch. If it is broken or not lit, you may have power but your screen may not come on. This is usually a little button located close to the lid hinge that turns on or off your screen when your lid is open or closed respectively. Normally the operator does not push this button. These are fragile and broken easily on some laptop models. Sometimes these can be repaired, more often they will require replacements. If you aren't an expert repair person, get a technician to repair or replace it for you.
  5. If you have tried these easy solutions and it still won't power on, then your problem lies elsewhere. You may have an internal power switch or voltage regulator problem. Internal problems will require professional help so go on down to your local PC store and have a qualified technican take a look.

I need to hold manipulate power cord just right in


You can buy a replacement motherboard on ebay for $150, but then you will have to pay someone to replace it. That could cost as much as the motherboard itself, so it is up to you how much you are looking to spend on this system.

Good Luck

Acer TravelMate Laptop, cord getting hot, not getting power


I would imagine the voltage regulator in the adapter brick it dying...it will fry your motherboard if it starts throwing off power spikes. laptops need good consistent power flow of the right voltage. Buy another adapter.

My power adapter gets extremely hot


I agree that it could pose a fire hazard if allowed to get too hot. Contact Gateway and ask if they will replace it, especially if your computer is still under warranty. If you're no longer under warranty or if they refuse to replace it for you, new power adapters can be purchased for $30-100, depending on make and model.

Below is a link for your power adapter at Buy.com:

Hope this helps.

Power connector overheating and not charging battery


That may not be an expensive fix; unless Averatec has reinvented the wheel and used some non-standard connector. It doesn't bode well though for their design though, power connectors aren't rocket science and they apparently chose one with inadequate current handling capabilities or durability. If the system is otherwise meeting your needs, you might have it looked at before dumping it. If you are in the US, check the Better Business Bureau to find a reliable shop; there are too many of the other kind around.

Averatec lap top av3500t


Hi As you have stated that you have no power this means that the CPU is overheating and is unable to complete the function of opening the operating system if you can feel the large fan that circulates air throughout the laptop you can generally say that the power is reaching the mother board but the CPU is getting to hot to function therefore i would sagest that you see about getting a heat seek fan for your laptop if you take it to a reputable computer store they may replace it for you and double check it for you Hope this solves your problem Paddy
