Laptop turning off

My Advent Roma 1001 keeps turning itself off about 5-10mins after starting up. Pretty sure it's not overheating as its not hot, just crashes on me. It won't turn back on for maybe 20mins or so. If power is connected then the power on light is lit, but if disconnected it is off. It is impossible to turn it back on until its "ready" to do so. Any help greatly appreciated.

Have you cleaned the areas around the fan and vents? Is it getting sufficent air flow? A laptop cooler is a option. You may have to open to verify that it's clean. I don't know the age, make, model of the machine. Does it do the same without battery? Has it been left on for extended periods of time? Plugged in for long periods of time? Hard to say exactly? Have you looked at the power options?

    I'm pretty sure it's not overheating, it's not heating up, that you can feel, just normal warmth from a laptop.

    I don't have that info either, im afraid, it's no actually mine, borrowed from my dad, and I'm away from the country for 6 months.

    Had it stay on for about an hour earlier, whilst a film was running, and it seemed ok. But then switched off again. Managed to run it in safe mode, and was able to get in for a good while without a problem.

    Any suggestions?

    You mentioned you you were away from the country, Is the AC different Volts, Hertz? Are you using a AC adapter? As in Plug type ? Anything change involving the AC?

  • Stephen Tinnion Dec 03, 2012

    Not 100% sure on the volts/hertz situation, I will check when I'm home later. This could be an issue, with power surges? Only thing that wouldn't make sense is that for over 2 months it's been used on the same power without an issue.

    I was able to use media player last night for over an hour with no problem...

    Maybe just a glitch in the machine/AC. Stranger things have happened.

SOURCE: Can't boot up laptop

If your Usb port works, then the mobo is working, so possible graphics problem. Try booting up in safe mode(normally pressing F8) on boot up then highlight 'start windows in safe mode', to see if Windows will load with only minimal drivers, if so restart again, pressing F8 again, but this time highlight 'start windows with last known good configuration' Doing any of these 2 things can be done in any order, either last known good config first or safe mode.

SOURCE: Advent Roma 1001 laptop. Turning on the laptop via

The fact that the laptop is recognising the battery's presence and yet is not receiving any power from it is not a good sign I'm afraid. There are batteries available online for around £40 but you may want to take the laptop to a repair centre first where they can usually tell you (for around £7-£10) if it is definitely a battery malfunction or not before you splash out on a new one.
Sorry I can't be any more help, battery issues are usually pretty black and white, they're either broken or working. Hope you manage to get it sorted either way.

My screen on the advent roma 1000 goes dark


Hi,

The usual culprits are loose connections (this only happens when the lid is moved forwards or backwards). The other is the LCD inverter getting too hot.

In both cases you will need to disassemble the laptop lid to check the leads and the inverter itself for dry joints.

If you're not comfortable with disassembling the laptop yourself then i recommend that you take it to a reputable repair store to have it looked at.


Regards.

How do i turn on my built in web cam on my advent roma


Dear ambercrane37,
Try to run the CD driver for your advent roma and then click INSTALL when the CD start, then The windows should installed the web cam for you automatically. If you don't have the CD driver for your advent roma, try to obtain from where you purchase. Or visit the respective web address on the box of the product and choose the DOWNLOAD or SUPPORT tabs on their web pages.

GoodLuck!

Best Regards,
