Question about Averatec 5110HX Notebook

2 Answers

Repair issues... I have never had a problem taking apart a laptop, but for some reason my Averatec 5110HX is wanting to be the bane of my existence! I have removed every single screw that I could locate on the case, but can't separate the top of the case from the bottom. I need to replace the power port so I can finally recharge my battery and start using my laptop again. Does anyone know where to find either schematics or a repair manual? Or better yet, does anyone know what I need to do to separate the case? Am I missing a screw somewhere?

    I also have run into some difficulty separating the shell from the rest of the computer. The power connector has a problem, probably just needs to be resoldered, but I am stumped trying to get the computer case disassembled.

    The User Manual does not provide the requisite information. If anyone knows of a Service Manual for the Averatec 5100, or the trick to disassembly, please do provide that information.

    Thanks!

I have solved the problem! The key to disassembly seems to be prying the keyboard off, as underneath are several screws that need to be removed in order to fully open the case.

I searched diligently online and found <a rel='nofollow' href="http://fatpenguinblog.com/scott-rippee/averatec-6200-laptop-deconstruction/"target=_blank>http://fatpenguinblog.com/scott-rippee/averatec-6200-laptop-deconstruction/</a> which shows the steps to taking apart an Averatec 6200, which has a substantially similar keyboard.

From the pictures there, I ascertained that the keyboard can be pried up from either side, where it is snapped into place with plastic tabs. Obviously, this needs to be done with care, so as not to damage delicate and irreparable plastic, and other, parts!

Good Luck! My computer is booting again, after I used a minute bit of tinfoil to reconnect the desoldered DC input jack, although it's a very temporary and fragile fix. I just don't have tools small enough to resolder the connection.

It is NOT NORMAL for a CD-ROM to experience any of the below symptoms.
  • No noise
  • Clicking during accessing the CD-ROM.

If you are exhibiting any of the above issues it is likely that the CD-ROM drive is defective and it is recommended that it be replaced.

Where is the cmos battery on the Averatec 3200

I can't find step by step instructions for dismantling your laptop (I found them for a Toshiba), but in general the CMOS battery on any PC is on the motherboard (this includes laptop motherboards). You'll have to take the system apart, including taking the keyboard out, etc. etc. to get to it. Take a look at how a Toshiba 6100 is taken apart for an example: http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba6100/Toshiba_Satellite_Pro6100_dismantle_1.htm It's not for the faint of heart so I'd recommend taking it to a local repair shop ...
