Averatec Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
My DVD wont recognize any DVDs. This just started today.
Well, DVD Drives do burn out, and while you probably don't want to hear it, you might have to buy a new one. If you have restarted the computer several times, and haven't installed anything lately, then it may just be dead. But you should try to remember if you have installed anything lately, or done anything to change the laptop. Also, see if it will read CD's, or if it makes noise like the CD/DVD is spinning up/down or the eye is moving back and forth when you insert it. Good Luck
Averatec 1000 webcam doesn't work
Integrated webcams are not useable with the Windows 7 OS. Windows XP had webcam software that enabled you to use the camera, as does Windows 8, 8.1 and 10. The patch to solve the issue with the integrated webcam using Windows 7 was never resolved... Not to my knowledge anyways. It would always come up with the message that the webcam was "Already in use by another program".
I cannot turn on my AV 2260 EY1. Nothing happens.
More than likely the power supply has gone bad. If you or a friend has a Volt meter you could test to see if electricity is getting from the wall to end of the cord (USE CAUTION TO NOT ZAP YOURSELF). In general the first thing to stop working on a laptop is the battery, and the second the power supply cord. That is my guess. How do you fix the power supply cord... buy a new one. I tried to fix one once, ended up all bad.

Averatec e1200 laptop i think it caught a virus
Hold the delete button when you turn it on and see if it loads BIOS up. If the screen displays the BIOS OK then you can change the boot sequence to CD/DVD or USB first and do a fresh windows installation. You could also try holding F8 at bootup and try loading safe mode. If this doesn't help it could be a problem with your screen or the wiring going to the screen. Possibly also a problem with the graphics card.
