Having problems with your Averatec PC Laptops ?

The laptop can not be turned on though it is plugged in

\015 Hello there, appreciate any advise on this kind of problem:the laptop Averatec 5100 can not be turned on though it is plugged in, during the last session the warning message did appear "Low Battery", after that the laptop had been turned off, but since then have not been responding to the power button, my guess is that something happened with battery, but to test it I have to buy a new one ($120) and it takes some time to deliver, appreciate any tips on what could be the cause and what could be done to fix it, thanks, Victor.\015

Answers :

Usually such old laptops show problems to turn on if the battery has a loose contact or if its completely blacked out. Looks like you have to change the battery and then keep the lap on charging mode for 2 hrs and then switch on the system and it will work. This is set as a default by some manufacturers to ensure that the lap works on backup on a sudden power failure. Please remove the battery, use a multimeter and check the voltage which has to be a minimum ranging from 7 V to 14.3 V and if its anything less than the same, you need to change the battery which will fix this issue. Good Luck
