    hi thanks for the quick reply

    i have located the the actual fn key however the f key with the small moniter icon (f3) just blanks the screen! after searching the website it doesn't seem that the f3 key or any of the f keys have the function i require to activate the lcd conection.

    regards danny

Hi,

It would be uncommon for a laptop not to have a function key, Fn. This would be normally located somewhere bottom left of the keyboard often after the CTRL key and/or before the Windows key. Further, it is often required to press the Fn key + F? key where the F? would be one of the F keys with the small monitor icon.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Ooopps, perhaps unknown to you, the rating you gave me brought my ranking down.

    In any case, pls try lowering your Screen Resolution first as well as the Screen Refresh Rate. This could be done in the Settings tab of your laptop's Display Properties. Thereafter, pls try again the Fn + F3. You may need to cycle, in some models, the choices are laptop display, laptop + TV, TV only.

    Should this do the trick, perhaps you will reconsider the rating; of course as you see it fit.

    Cheers.

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

Advent 7111 narrow screen


If the display isn't going full screen, on that 15.4 inch TFT LCD screen, the problem is the screen Inverter, or LCD screen itself.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the screen Inverter.
It isn't a simple screen resolution setting that needs to be changed.

http://www.laptoppowerjacks.co.uk/advent-inverter/advent-7111-7107-8315-lcd-screen-inverter-as023217127-iv09140t-lf.html

Primer:

An LCD screen does not produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Vikuiti1/BrandProducts/secondary/optics101/

It needs an additional light source.
The additional light source is a Backlight.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED's.
The Advent 7111 Notebook PC uses One CCFL,

http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=7111&brand=Advent&size=

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Average size is 2mm Thick. Length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height. 2mm is close to 1/16th of an Inch )

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

Primer over.

I don't have access to a Service Manual, for the Advent 7111 Notebook PC. I haven't had one come to my shop for repair.

I DO have years of experience at repairing laptops, and I see the Advent 7111 is just a basic laptop, as I HAVE repaired over the years.

If you wish, I can guide you step by step, in replacing the screen Inverter.

(MANY people go out, and buy an LCD screen, when the problem is a much less expensive screen Inverter. Afterwards they buy the screen Inverter. Too bad they didn't come here first)

Post back in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ The Advent 7111 Notebook PC is just a re-badged Quanta TW3M.
According to the source, you should see TW3M on the bottom of the laptop.

Hello, i have a sanyo lcd tv & i want too connect my Advent Laptop to it, but i dont know what cable to use because my laptop doesnt not have the HDMI port or the VGA port.... help?


Does your TV have an S-VIdeo input? Does your TV have a DVI input?

What model of Advent laptop?

Does your laptop have a S-Video output socket (looks quite similar to a PS/2 mouse-socket) ?

Does your laptop have DVI-output?

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.
