Problems with Computers

Many times just checking your connection with your wires can solve the problem. Either net cables can have a broken clip and will come out or partial out and cause intermittent problems.

Auto- shifter on column, ...cable?

That pointer you speak is connected to the column sleeve at bottom with a small wire on a push on clip. Either the clip has come off the column sleeve or the wire connecting them is broken. You just have to figure out how to get to it.

Hi I have a Baotian 50cc bt49q 9r. Bike won't start I've cleaned the carb drained old fuel etc, bought a new battery and a new spark plug.CDI might be faulty which I have ordered or the coil pack ?

Hi, Neil and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

I have a new battery and alternator. My battery light comes on and off throughout daily driving. What's going on?

It could be as simple as a corroded connector.

Check the remote ends of the heavy cables related to the battery and alternator for corrosion and tightness.

Always disconnect the negative battery cable first and reattach last.

advent 4211 screen to base connection problem

Video Cable

The Video Cable connects to the motherboard.

It then runs along under the Left Hinge, and connects to the back of LCD screen.

{LED backlighting. Does not use a screen Inverter]

Due to just normal opening, and closing of the laptop; the Video Cable may be pinched.

This can cause the connection of the Video Cable TO motherboard, to be loose; and/or LCD screen.

Solution is to partially disassemble the laptop, and PHYSICALLY make sure the connection at motherboard is tight.
Visual inspection will NOT do.

Connection at back of LCD screen needs to be Physically checked also. (Try to plug in tighter)

Also visually inspect the sheath of the Video Cable, for apparent signs of damage.
Any signs of damage to the sheath, may mean damage to the tiny wires inside the Video Cable.

Also due to the age of the laptop, suspect cracking of the insulation, of the wires inside the Video Cable.
If you have a multimeter, set it to OHM's (1K), and check continuity of every wire in the Video Cable.
Or take it to a small computer store, and have the resident tech check it.

The Advent 4211 is just a rebadged MSI Wind U100, according to my findings,

Disassembly guide,


That's the problem, the Video Cable,


[ In the photo, the large connector at bottom plugs into the LCD screen.
The smaller connector at the upper right plugs into the motherboard.
The separate black wire you see with the eyelet on it, is a Ground wire ]

Right channel is busted. Can't hear a thing though the left channel plays alright.

99 times out of 100 it's a faulty cable/connection. Could be anywhere along the length, from connector to the headphone itself. If you're handy with a soldering iron, it's usually easily fixed.
