How to replace a hard drive in a Averatec 3200? Ken Weakland


After some research, I did locate the user manual for this notebook, the link is below. The manual provides a good deal of information, what it does not tell you is the location of the hard drive. Generally though, the hard drive is located on the bottom of the laptop, under one of the panels secured by screws. Also, generally, the hard drive is enclosed in a cradle with an adapter that connects the hard drive to the system board. To replace, you unplug the existing hard drive, remove the cradle and put the new drive in the cradle the plug it back in.

I hope that this puts you in the right direction to answer your question. Look at the manual, which will show you where many of the other components are located on the bottom of the notebook. This will help you narrow your search.

If you have any other questions about the process, please let me know.

My averatec 3700 series does not read some new sd cards. can you help?


The card reader on your laptop can't read SDHD cards - cards bigger than 2GB. There's nothing you can do about it, it's a hardware limitation. For those cards you will have to buy a separate card reader.

Does the hard drive interchange with other Averatecs?


Swapping hard drives only works if the hard drive is swapped into an identical computer with the same device configurations, CPU and RAM etc.
The best way to copy or recover data from a working hard drive is to insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. You should see this drive as an external hard drive and you can then copy or backup the data onto the computers hard drive or USB memory stick etc.

My averatec series 3200 notebook cant detect my usb device


The flash disk could be faulty, especially when it draws too much power, and this will cause the USB ports to shut down and the other USB devices won't work until the faulty device is removed.

Disk read error


A disk read error on boot is an indication that the hard disk drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

If the system is under warranty, then contact the manufacturer/warranty provider. If not under warranty then you have to replace or have the hard drive replaced for you by a technician.

Portable hard drives are fairly inexpensive ($100 or less normally) and labor to replace one should run $50 to $100 or so.

Averatec 3700 hard drive


The hard drive is located under the plastics on the right below keyboard. Accessing is a pain and a bit of trial and error.

If the system crashed, I would use a linux live cd like PUPPY
to transfer what files you want to a flash drive then use the recovery partition to restore to factory settings.

if you need the distribution of puppy I can e-mail it to you or you can google it and download it. Live cd's load into ram memory and once loaded you "mount" the hard drive access it and copy files to a "mounted" flash drive.

The recovery partition is accessed by one of the function keys

How to replace hard drive in Averatec 3700 series notebook


The link to all the manuals is no longer valid, Averatec has been purchased by Trigem. Averatecforums.com and Averatec-forums.com have both gone under and there is painfully few dis assembly guides available.

The only one I've been able to find that was useful is found here:[url]http://www.larwe.com/technical/av3715-open.html[/url]

Goodluck pulling out your hard drive.
