Advent 5431 date keeps changing back to 2008


IS your TimeZone is Correct?
Right click on your clock, choose Adjust Date/Time.
Click Time Zone Tab. Make sure your Time zone is correctly set.


Boot into the BIOS (setup) screens and check the date and time there. If the date is off by years then that verifies you need a new CMOS battery. Do not confuse the CMOS battery with the large external battery you run the computer with.

Toshiba L45 s7409 shuts off after it is on anywhere from a few seconds to half hour or so. could it be overheating? any fix?


This unit is overheating. Get some compressed air from Walmart, and spray the fins near the fan (upper left side looking from the front of the keyboard). If you play a lot of dvds, that overworks the CPU and heats it up. I bought a small $7 fan at Walmart to cool it off during these times, and I haven't had a problem since.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

May I know whether the Hard Drive is listed in the BIOS? This issue will occur if the Operating System is corrupted or if the Hard Drive is failed. You can use the Windows disc and reinstall the Windows once. If the reinstallation process is not successful, then you may have to replace the Hard Drive.

My laptop freezes on start up most times.I've had it looked at and they say its my motherboard.Its 13 months old.could you advise.ADVENT 5431


to prove a point 1 is it over heating and does the fan spin. 2 turn on and enter the bios should show time and date leave there for a few hours if doesnt freeze the chances are its not over heating, poss hard drive or memory i would have a guess hard drive bad sectors but dont hold me to that!

My advent 5431 laptop windows vista setup hangs


often in vista installation, you have an option to install a driver, and then you put your driver disk in the drive and the Sata driver is installed. Then vista will install as it should . Give it a try..
