I have an Averatec 1000 Series Netbook and it is running at the moment Chromium os. Regardless of the OS that's put on it, it chooses when it wants to turn on. It has been dubbed amongst friends The Devil Book and here is why.
One week it will power on and run for hours. I am able to turn it on with normal shutdown. The next week it will not turn on at all, this includes no lights on sounds, no post bios not even the fan spins up. It is like there is no power coming to it. the same happens on eather power source, battery or power supply. It has been taken apart to see what was wrong but to no avail. It at the moment has an MSI bios on it. It boots fine with the MSI bios when it powers on.
I have ran a heat gun on it to see if that fixed it. After the heat gun, the machine worked but is doing the same it did before the re-flow.
I have removed the ram form the ram slot and left the onboard ram.
I have removed the wireless card and swapped it with another.
I have removed the hdd and the cmos battery.
I have reseated the connectors on all components.
Yet it still Has the same issue of no power or life. But after about a month it will work for a week again, then do the same. It does this randomly like it will last 2 weeks on time then 1 the next.
Does anyone have any idea what could be the issue. You can be specific to the component level if you like.
