Advent 4211 won't turn on

I turn it on, the white Advent screen posts, then it switches itself off again. I read somewhere that it could be a static issue with the battery so I took out the battery and just ran from the mains. Same thing happened. Tried running off just the battery but nothing. Tried taking out the battery, unplugging the power cord and holding the power button down for 20 seconds, then plugging it in again but it still won't work. Any ideas? Thanks.

SOURCE: year old advent netbook 4211b will not turn on,

When you press power button press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you can see bios screen then you not need to refix RAM memory or reset bios.
IF you can see bios screen then lake sure harddisk is detected and SATA is disable then save settings and exit.
Also when you power up press F8 key if you able to see safe mode and other menu then you have change screen resolution enter in enable vga mode.
Then open control panel and display then change scree resolution to 1024*768.
Then apply and ok.
But if you can't see bios screen or nothing in dispaly then you have to refix RAM memory .
Check in back side there is 1 plate open it then refix RAM memory.
If still not get display then open back cover of laptop then find motherbord on it then pull cmos cell for 10 minutes so all settings go to defaults then again refix cmos cell then check.

Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

SOURCE: Advent 4211-C won't power up

You may have already tried this... Please remove the battery to see if the machine responds to pluged in power by itself. Press the power button for about 30 seconds befor pluging in the power... this is usually the way to reset the laptop. A defective battery can keep the machine from working.
If there is no response, the motherboard may have been damaged or a solder gotten loose, either way, it would need to be taken apart to verify and the solution could be expensive.

Advent 4211 screen to base connection problem


Video Cable

The Video Cable connects to the motherboard.

It then runs along under the Left Hinge, and connects to the back of LCD screen.

{LED backlighting. Does not use a screen Inverter]

Due to just normal opening, and closing of the laptop; the Video Cable may be pinched.

This can cause the connection of the Video Cable TO motherboard, to be loose; and/or LCD screen.

Solution is to partially disassemble the laptop, and PHYSICALLY make sure the connection at motherboard is tight.
Visual inspection will NOT do.

Connection at back of LCD screen needs to be Physically checked also. (Try to plug in tighter)

Also visually inspect the sheath of the Video Cable, for apparent signs of damage.
Any signs of damage to the sheath, may mean damage to the tiny wires inside the Video Cable.
(Stretched/Broken)

Also due to the age of the laptop, suspect cracking of the insulation, of the wires inside the Video Cable.
If you have a multimeter, set it to OHM's (1K), and check continuity of every wire in the Video Cable.
Or take it to a small computer store, and have the resident tech check it.

The Advent 4211 is just a rebadged MSI Wind U100, according to my findings,

Disassembly guide,

That's the problem, the Video Cable,

[ In the photo, the large connector at bottom plugs into the LCD screen.
The smaller connector at the upper right plugs into the motherboard.
The separate black wire you see with the eyelet on it, is a Ground wire ]

Advent 4211 will not read linux on usb


Ubuntu has a very user friendly setup. You have the option to download onto USB and either setup (install) or run from USB (good for testing). Same thing for CD's. I like Dual Boot for maximum flexibility. Just install within Windows. Spend a little time on their site to determine what is best for you. Lastly Backtrack 5 also has same options with interfaces to choose from.

Hi! I can't find any way to get my Advent 4211-C (Windows XP OS) webcam working on Skype (the only webcam function I currently use). Cyberlink says there's "No available Captured Device". I don't...


Advent 4211 always require you to enable it everytime you turn the laptop on. it is Fn key + F10 I think. Look for the Function key at the top of your keyboard which has a picture of a webcam. Hold down the FN key at the bottom left, and then click on the correct 'F' key. You should see a little picture come up on the screen to say you have enabled your webcam. That should work.
