    I have had the same problem for a few months now. Firstly the mains adaptor would fail occaissionally and now I have to spend up to thirty minutes wiggling the adaptor into the power socket to find the right spot. Even then, as soon as the laptop is moved, however slightly, it will lose power again. Not sure if this is a problem with the adaptor itself, but having done a bit of research, it sounds like it could be a loose power jack. It can be fixed DIY (not by myself, I have a friend whos into computers) but dont know if its worth the risk to save money. But Im a student in the middle of a dissertation, so its either no money or no degree!

    Exact same problem, after 13 months. PC World confirmed that the motherboard has packed up and quote £240 to return to manuafacturer for repair. How hard is it to buy a new motherboard and repair it myself - as someone with only a lowish level knowledge of electronics?

If you have a battery to test it with and there is still no power then a common defect is the power jack itself. You would need to have the technical proficiency to troubleshoot that circuit. If you do not have a battery to test that possibility you might ask a repair shop to just put one in before you buy one as the possibility of a bad motherboard exists. Steve Medley

I have a Advent 8315 the turns itself off when unplugged even when its fully charged


Try removing your battery, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in and see if it powers up. If not, take your battery out, put it in the freezer overnight, take it out and let it sit in room temperature for 12 hours and then put it back in ....DO NOT put it in right out of the freezer and into the laptop ...let it warm up .... after 12 hours, try it and see if it shows 0% and charging ...if it still shows 100% charged, your battery is shot. Let me know how it goes

I have followed all the instructions on how to connect the wireless router to my Sylvania Netbook and I am still unable to access the internet, can you give me the solution to this problem.


Had the same problem with my Sylvania Netbook I purchased last week. Last night, I stopped by CVS that received a shipment early in the afternoon and purchased another. Powered on to wifi at first and it would not connect on internet. Clicked on little tv, pulled up my preferred connection and entered Network key. Shut down and restarted and it connected onto google!

My original Sylvania Netbook had the same settings in place and still would not connect - so I am returning it today for a refund - it was defective.

Why does my laptop keep freezing? I use a free registry cleaner and ccleaner weekly,defrag regularly and have good anti virus and anti spy protection, I have loads of memory left but still freezes once or...


If the system has 2 memory modules, try them one at a time and see if the issues only occur with one module or the other. If the issue is isolated to 1 module, then replace it.

Other things to try, Update the system BIOS to most current version if not done already and most current video driver

Advent 8315 Laptop


One of the best sources for these types of things is online at a site called newegg.com. You can search based on the Manufacturer and model number of your Laptop. If that fails you try the Manufacturers website, they will sometimes list where replacements can be purchased or well on themselves.
