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.
(Stretched/Broken)

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,

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 ]

Computer will not start.


Well it seems that there may have been wither a compatibility problem or a .dll file has been erased. I suggest removing the recently added device, or any new hardware added see if that changes anything or you may have to reinstall Windows.

My Advent 4211 netbook connects wirelessly to the Internet through my Desktop and a Belkin router. How do I allow the netbook to see the files in the desktop?


if you ran your network wizard to get the internet access shared then you should be able to share your files too.
and folders the same way ,

go to my network device,
veiw network computers,
if you can see the computers desk top then
go to Shared folders and try to see if your folders have been shared open something.

If you can see the desktop and not open the shared folders then run the network wizard again,shutdown and restart,to save your settings,
to share files between both machines you will need to drag the file into my shared folders or rightclick on the file your sharing and click on sharing,follow the prompts to share and that should fix your problem.

Please rate me thanks MISTERDJ

How do I connect to web?


As far am I'm aware the Advent 4211 netbook is not able to connect to the Internet 'on it's own' as such. Unfortunately the word 'netbook' has been advertised with this product in many PC World stores giving the wrong impression.
The best and easiest way would be to look into mobile broadband solutions.
Of course, it wouldn't do any harm to try out your Vodafone USB on their laptop to make sure it works well enough! :)
