It will be a port for a "peripheral" or add-on card which will connect to the motherboard, this could be anything, if i were you i would just proceed with the RAM upgrade and leave this alone until you find out what it is for.

Wher are the USB ports on Advent DT1308


Advent Advance DT1308 Desktop PC?

http://www.pcpro.co.uk/reviews/desktops/370084/advent-dt1308

Look at the Back of your Advent computer tower.
Look at the lower left.

This rectangular area is the I/O area.
Input/Output area.

This is where Input and Output devices are attached.

Look at the Purple round PS/2 port all the way at the right bottom.
It's where the Keyboard plugs in.

Right above it are four USB ports.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB

There are several styles of USB ports. This style is a USB female type A,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB.svg

(Standard A )

According to the review (Specs tab), there is supposed to be two USB ports in the Front. (Front Panel)
I do not see them.

Could be behind a door that swings open.

Looking at the Side View, with the Side Panel of the computer case removed, the USB cables going to these front ports, are going towards the bottom/front.

I have a advent 7302 laptop the usb ports do not reconise anything pluged into them and when i plug a device in the mouse pad locks the cursa


Try and re-install the USB drivers for the Mainboard, Any problems with external devices in USB ports could be due to a lack of power (or low power ) on the ports. I hope this helps point you in the right direction.

I want to find the location of the ram ports on


Hi,
Turn the laptop off. Remove the battery and the AC power supply.
Turn the laptop upside down and look for a panel with one or two screws (there maybe more than one panel). Unscrew the panels to access the RAM compartment, it will look something similar to this >>>>>>

Replacing keyboard for advent 7108 laptop


I have had the same problem several times over and it is VERY likely that the liquid has reached other components (specifically the motherboard) and will corrode anything that the liquid has come to rest on. The keyboard itself is easy enough to remove and replace, but the only place I am finding parts for advents is in the UK. This means replacement of the keyboard COULD be costly and in the long run the computer may fail due to corrosion especially if it was pop or juice or any other acidic liquid. Here is the link I found for a possible solution.  http:/www.adventspares.co.uk  if they dont have it, these guys might... http://www.techno-mart.co.uk/advent.html
Good luck, and I hope you havent damaged your motherboard! Kirk
