Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, my name is Mike, my advent 7103 will not except any mains power, there is no power light on. I have checked the power output from the mains adapter which i think is OK. do you think it could be the power socket on the mother board. any help would be gratefull. thanks
Try clearing your CMOS. This is done by removing battery and mains power, lifting the speaker cover off and then look under the keyboard. Unscrew panel where keyboard ribbon enters, you should now see your RAM & BIOS chip. Disconnect ribbon next to BIOS chip and reconnect, that should clear your CMOS.

If your psu is working fine remove the battery and check the jack on the mobo with a small screw driver should have little if any play at all. its a very common problem for the solder on the mobo to become loose/break. its a cheap fix but some power jacks require some de-soldering to remove them from the mobo.
