Re: booting problems with evo n800v

Hi nasirl
Looks like one of the contacts is not 100%, if it getets a little warm things expand a little, when that happens the contact is restored, so it seems.

this can be cause by a faulty Hard disk or motherboard, if it is the Harddisk it may be worth to replace it, if it is the motherboard you may be ale to find a cheap one on ebay or something simular, replacingit with an new one is very expensive if it is still possible.

You can ask a computershop or some one that has another laptop HD to test this for you.

Have a nice day,
HTH, Ronald

Thank you Ronald for your time and effort for the reply.

I will try changing the HD first and if it does not fix the problem, I will not bother with the motherboard it is not worth it.

Thanks again for your reply
