Having problems with your Averatec 3200 Notebook ?

Power connector overheating and not charging battery

\015 Hi,I've been dealing with this problem for a couple of weeks but I think my Averatec 3300 series PC notebook is now on its way out. The power supply cord needs to be held in a specific place or wiggled in order for it to transfer power to my laptop/charge the battery. And when it is transferring power, the upper right corner of the laptop (where the power connector sits) is too hot to touch; not to mention, there is a slight frying smell!) I feel pretty confident that the problem is with the connector inside the laptop, and not with the cord. Since my computer is no longer under warranty, is it worth paying to get it fixed--and is this even easy to fix? Or should I invest in a new laptop?Any thoughts are appreciated!Thanks,Marisa\015

Answers :

My laptop when connected to power the charge does not charge at all. The battery color remains green. Could it be a hardware problem on my motherboard or probably the charger its self.
That may not be an expensive fix; unless Averatec has reinvented the wheel and used some non-standard connector.\015\012It doesn't bode well though for their design though, power connectors aren't rocket science and they apparently chose one with inadequate current handling capabilities or durability.\015\012If the system is otherwise meeting your needs, you might have it looked at before dumping it.\015\012If you are in the US, check the Better Business Bureau to find a reliable shop; there are too many of the other kind around.

During power up, the pc quits working.Blue power light stays on but no power to hard drive or screen. Occasionally will get through power up and then quits working after 3-4 minutes. It's not the battery. Had a loose charging connector which I thought was causing the problem. Charging connector is fixed, but problem is still there. Believe the loose connector may have caused damage somewhere else.


I'd remain focused on the batteries. You can't have a blue power light on, unless there is power to the drive, I say this because you do power up occasionally, albeit, for a short time. This should also rule out Operating Sytem failure. Not hard dri ... Toshiba Satellite M35X-S111 Notebook

Hello, I am having problems with my Compaq nx6110 laptop not charging. It is not the battery, as I replaced it at the end of December. The problem seems to be that the charge isn't reaching the battery, even though the little "charging" light is on when the battery is plugged in. Also, the charging light will turn off and on sporadically, and will sometimes turn off altogether after only a few minutes of "charging". Does this sound like a charger problem or an internal problem? Also, the laptop
