    I have an Averatec laptop with a weird problem I just can't figure out. The laptop runs great, no problems at all with the way it runs. But if I shut it off, when I go tot run it back on, it will not turn on. The lights will come on, and the drives will spin, but it won't post. (Not a screen problem. I am sure of it.) In order to get it back on, I have to unplug the power cable and remove the battery for about 5 minutes, and then I pop the battery back in and it will turn on fine. It is just a little annoying because I have to do that EVERY time I turn it on. And sometimes, it will go days without coming on, even when I do this trick... Then suddenly it will work again.

    Any ideas on how to fix this? Or anybody with a similar problem?
