Having problems with your Everex StepNote XT5000T Notebook ?

When I am lucky my Everex stepnote will turn on. Sometimes it runs for a few minutes and the other night it ran for two hours, than there is a pop and the whole thing shuts down. More often than not the screen won't turn on and the fan runs really loud. The power button as well as the microphone button are usually lit up. Someone said that they thought I needed to clean the RAM but since I don't know what the RAM looks like, I don't know how to identify it so I can remove it so I can clean it. A


Answers :

It sounds like an overheating issue. Go get a few cans of compressed air especially made for cleaning sensitive office equipment. Take the battery out, wait 30 seconds and open all the case covers on the bottom of the laptop. Take the compressed air and using short bursts, blow air in all the ventilation grills first, this will blow dust, dirt and hair out of the cooling fins leading to the processor. Then blow air into all the open spaces, this is where the hard drive, ram and wireless card lives. blow out the keyboard area and the rest of the system and put the case covers back in place.
