Boot failure

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

How do i hook up

If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and your running WINDOWS.and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (unplug for a few minutes) try --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---try---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)
this is a link to a troubleshooting flow-chart


If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not -comment back so we can dig further to resolve this

My averatec 3150 runs for a while and just shuts

Feel the bottom of the system- if it is burning hot, you likely have a failing fan/cooling system issue. The symptom you are describing is classic for a system overheating. I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/susan_42b401e0b1603d8a

Please provide instructions on how to install

Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC adapter.
Remove the battery.
Flip the computer upside-down.
Look at the various "bay" covers.
Under one of them will be a slot for RAM.
Take a screwdriver, and remove the cover.
You might either find existing RAM (one stick or two),
or you might find an empty slot.

Now, the difficult part is purchasing RAM that will be compatible with your "antique" (1997) laptop. I highly advise that you take the computer, the battery, and the power-supply to a computer-store, so that they can sell you "compatible" memory -- the "wrong" memory won't fit, or won't work, or will only add 1/4 or 1/2 the amount of RAM present on the stick.

In many cases you need to contact the manufacture here if its still under warranty. If not you going to need to dig into this laptop and short out the cmos battery to reset the BIOS password.

Now this is easier said then done and I understand that. But what needs to be done is the laptop needs to be opened and you need to reset the bios this is done by taking out or shorting out the cmos battery. If you do not know how to do this you would then need to take it to a tech locally to have it done. They would use something that goes into the usb port that resets the bios $65 bucks.

good luck with this i know its hard work.. please do click the accept button for my efforts. Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/edwy_1a56970cf1ea4620

How do i reset bios master password

Locate the battery inside the computer called the CMOS battery. It is round like a watch battery and if removed for about 10 - 15 seconds, it should reset the BIOS to default and also the date/time settings will be incorrect, so be sure to change that as well.
