Turned on my Avertec 3200 one morining and it would't start. Pushed power on, nothing, but I did hear faint high pitch sound. Tried sleep function key, nothing. Green light is on. Know it isn't power cord or battery, have two Avertec's. Is this hardware problem?
I have a averatec 3200 series my problem is " boot failure " i try to install xp everything works good when HDD is formatted and files are copied it restarts thats normally but dont continue to installation all time i see this message " boot failure" i check my HDD it havent any prob. so i guess i need a bios update but cant find it anywhere :S can anyone help to update my bios pls :S my mail is : [email protected] send an e-mail pls
Well i had sme problem with my averatec i check cmos battery its ok check power plug ok check settings in bios there is a setting there u hafta enable and problem was fix for the mean time she turns on and off with no problem
Ok so I had the same problem with a 3150 and now I got a 3200 doing the same thing its a real small chip on the board that has come loose I fixed it on the 3150 but since the board might be different I was looking on the web for more detail I can't forget what the chip looks like and the best way to tell if you have this problem if push down hard on spots near the keyboard this will push the chip into the spot were it has been disconnected to and then the computer should start. Im going to take it apart now I might post an update but if you really want to know the turn out of all this e-mail me with the subject line AVERATEC and I will post a reply maybe even a picture [email protected]
My Averatec did the same thing. Try turn it on (where nothing starts up, but the indicator lights do come on. Leaving it like this, walk away from it for about 3 or 4 minutes and then hold down the power button until all the lights go out. Then immediately turn it back on. It's not an answer to the problem, but it'll at least get it turned on.

Re: Suddenly my Averatec won't start
It could be your Power Supply or your CMOS Battery is dead. For Power Supply, you can test by try to connect your Power Cord without battery to see for any PowerPush. If it is still not on then you can check your CMOS Battery for any failure by test the good one from other similar laptop since you had two. I hope this help.

If laptops do not come with an installation disc, sometimes there is a setting in the BIOS which will allow reseting to factory settings. When the computer is first turned on, it will usually provide a specific key to access the BIOS or setup screen.
Ooops, if ntldr is missing, it means your operating system is dead. You should reinstall windows from cd. Must get into Bios to select first boot device as Cd and then press f10 and yes. When you start your lap it says you what key press to get to Bios or boot menager.
After I found the manual somewhere on the internet, I realized that it is already available here. (Lucky you!)
I could not find a specific manual for your Aquos TV (which model?). Look into your manual, and see if there is an option to connect via VGA of HDMI for video If you want to use your TV speakers, it depends what audio input options you have on your TV. You might need a cable like this:
The red/white connectors into your TV, the 2.5mm plug into your computer.
You didn't mention the model so here's some information that might help you with the dis-assembly process. You might want to use a digital camera to document your dis-assembly. The pix will make it a lot easier to do the re-assembly. PS, when you finally get it back together and working, invest in a good CRD (Cable Retention Device) to take the strain off the pin and keep you from having to do the job again. I use and recommend this product.
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:
It's not for the faint of heart so I'd recommend taking it to a local repair shop ...
Flashing green battery means it is in suspend mode. Pushing the power button should bring it out of suspension, however, one of the reasons I deactivate both suspend and hibernate mode is because the seldom work right.
I would disconnect your A/C power cord and remove your battery from the laptop. After about 30 seconds plug them back in and your commuter should start again.
Let us know how things go.
