Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have an Averatec laptop, series 2300. While I was using it, it just shut down (immediate shut down) and wouldn't boot up again. I have removed battery, Let it charge overnight, and twice it has come back on, and then shut off again during use. Any idea what could be wrong. Right now, it will not boot up. The power light appears when it is plugged in, the blue lights appear when I turn it on, I hear a boot up noise for a second or two and then nothing.

    I have a averatec 2300 laptop, the power goes on but nothing else. The harddrive does not start or boot. I do not have a system disk or a boot disk but need one.

    I disassembled the entire computer and recycled both the ram and the cpu but the problem persists. I took the battery off and ran it from the power adapter. still no change.

    Before this problem the screen would go black and then start changing wierd colors almost like the effects of windows media player when you play an audio cd. I have full access to all components. I thought about taking the lithium battery off and replacing it as well but those things are supposed to last for years. What else do you think I can do?

I seem to be finding this exact same problem on several different topics. I also have an Averatec 2300 ultra-portable laptop.

It seems the problem lies in the mother board not getting enough power at power up. This can be seen by the flash of the HD indicator, as well as the temporary flash of Orange occuring with a fully charged battery in the machine at power up.

The easiest temporary fix for this issue is to actually insert a CD into the Drive, as in most other cases, that is one of the only devices that does receive power.

The second and probably most futile step is to Contact the Trigem company responsible for manufacturing these faulty laptops. (As this problem occurs in A LOT of these 2300 Series.

Are you just running it from the battery? It sounds like you may have a motherboard problem. I would first put in my OS boot cd and see if it boots from the CD. Let me know if you don't know how to boot from CD. If it does boot from cd then run a chkdsk /r on your hard drive.
If that doesn't fix it I would see if the power supply is not working again are you running from the battery without power supply?
Thanks,
Henry

After charging battery, when I press start, it attempts to start and then immediately shuts down. After recharging the battery a while, and attempting restart, the same thing happens again.


Hi

Have you tried to use your computer when power charger is connected to power supply? Then try it to check if your computer does not shut down. If do not shut down it self. You had problem with the battery or with charger not compatible with the battery. Normal problem of shutting down computer is that your battery have no charge, your battery is not compatible with your laptop or ever defective. Tr

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.

Averatec 2300


My 2300 started same problems in Dec 08 (almost 2 years old) Its an overheat problem! With black screen the two blue lights an bottom left are on. Leave powered up and in an hour or so will shut down on its on, then will start back up normally but shut down again in about an hour.Correction 1. pull off back cover, blow out the dust. 2.Go to set up (F2 on power up and run fan cal) 3. Take the back cover off you will feel how hot the CPU and hard drive are that is because vents are too small for an aging laptop. Now take the cover and drill a double line of holes on each side of the hard drive vents, Next over the CPU (where the fan blows in air, drill a triple line of new vent holes in the cover). A 5/32 drill will be about right. You may also wish to purchase an inexpensive Belkin laptop cooler. About $19 at Best Buy. This solved my problem as I do like this little one for travel

Averatec 2300 laptop will not power on.


The problem is that the computer does not get enough power when you turn it on and that's why it doesn't boot.
Try to put a random CD in it and leave it there for an hour maybe two. By spinning the CD, more volts get through the mainboard. Then shut it down by pressing the power button and then press it again and see the results. If this wouldn't work the first time, try it again.

Averatec 2300 laptop will not power on.


We need to determine if the problem is your graphics chip or if the laptop really isn't booting. Do you get any kind of hard-drive activity light when you boot it up?

Travelmate 2310 keyboard and touchpad problem


Boot up the system (without the battery).
When the system runs normaly then place the battery on its normal bay.
Shut down bij removing the power from the system.
* Make sure you have not installed any Windows power saving tools, meaning let it run on the battery till it dies *
Wait till the systems shuts down by itself.
Boot your system again (with the battery in its bay and everything will work out fine.
Shuting down by removing the power support (AC) booting up AND your keyboard with touchpad will work again.
So intill you have a new battery, you need to shut-down by removing the AC power and leave the battery in its bay.
You can not shut-down on the normal way any more untill you have replaced the battery.

Display Problems


Hi NuvoTechie,

Try this. Do a restart, and see if that error occurs. Then try shutting fully down, hold the power button in for 10 sec, and see if it works OK from a cold boot. Don't have a solution, but I have to do the same on my Averatec, and thier suppor is no help.
