    Hi there,

    I have an Averatec 2300 laptop with a really annoying problem. Here are the specs, just in case it matters.

    AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50
    2 GB DDR2 RAM
    250 GB SATA HDD
    nVidia GeForce GO 6100

    The problem is that when I push the power button, the lights will come on, the drives will seek and all that, but it will not past. I know it's not th screen because when it does this, the fans don't go into a fast spin for a few seconds like they do when it starts normally. BUT, if you try ver and over, powering it on and off, eventually it will turn on normally and run just fine! If I leave it on, it will be fine for days and days (as long as I leave it on), but if I power down, or restart, it does it again. Also, standby works fine too. It's just when it actually powers off or restarts.

    I was told by a friend that it may be the motherboard, a blown capacitor or something, but it is odd that sometimes it will run with no problems, which leads to it not being a MB problem, right? Also, I know it's not the memor or HD or anything like that, because I had both of those replaced/upgraded when I started having this problem. The laptop only costed $950.00, and I have already out in over $300.00 replacing things to try and solve this problem, so I would hope not to spend anymore if I don't have to

    Any Ideas?

    PS: I also have a problem with the DVD drive not reading DVD+R discs, even though it is supposed to, but I can live with that. I'd rather fix the other problem first. Anyways, I was told by that same friend that it is probably a firmware issue and to upgrade it (but I can't find a firmware upgrade for a Mat****a UJ-850d, so any links would be cool too).

    Thanks. And if you have any questions, just post them. I will be watching this like a hawk so I can get this fixed! Haha. It really is annoying!
