Advent QT5500 Hi there. After much googling and no solution I was wondering if someone could help with the following. I have owned a QT5500 Advent laptop for about 18months running vista and had no problems at all. Yesterday I closed the laptop lid whilst logged in and online and the power on the machine completely went. It is dead, nothing.The power adaptors light is on. I have tried holding down the power button but to no avail. I presume the battery is screwed. Any advice or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi. i'm trying to get my girlfriends notebook(advent 4213) connected to the net. i am using my own wireless net but when i click on the net it comes up saying this page cannot be displayed. do i h


If the Advent notebook normally connects to the internet without problem on her network, then you need to check the following:

1. That she does not have any proxy connection setting in her web browser that you do not use on your own network.

2. Check that her wireless adapter is configured to Obtain an IP address automatically and also Obtain DNS server address automatically.

3. Check the status of the wireless adapter connection and ensure that the Advent notebook has been given a valid IP address, i.e. if your are connecting to a wireless router on your network, you should see an address something like 192.168.x.x where the x.x depend on how your router is setup. If you see a 168.x.x.x address then the notebook is not getting a valid, routable IP address and you should try to do a Repair of the network adapter connection. Repair may also be shown as Diagnose and repair depending on which version of Windows is used.

Hi, Wife has an Advent 4211 Netbook / Laptop with a noisey Fan. Wondering how easy to remove cover and clean / replace fan. Cheers Dave.


Hi, before removing and replacing, have you tried to clean it with an air can, if the fan works most of the time this helps and you will not need to take anything apart, just pick up one at your local electronic store, follow the instruction on the can and spray the air ways starting with the openning under your fan, start SLOW and gradually increase the air flow and be careful not to let the air pressure break the fan fins by sudden changes in the air flow... Hope that Helps
