    You could always buy yourself a new case which will support your motherboard choice. Afterward just move the parts out of your old computer and stick them into your new computer.

    Just a few things you need to watch out for. If your current hard-drive and optical drive is hooked up through the typical ATA cable, you will have to buy a new hard drive and optical drive which is SATA compatible. You also need to make sure that your video card is a type that will fit a port on your new motherboard. Afterward you need to make sure that your current PSU will fit your new motherboard. Some PSUs only have a 20 pin connector while some motherboards require 24 pins.

    Just a few things to consider before upgrading. Just trying to make sure it works smooth for you.

    Let me know if buying a new case is not an option and I'll see if I can determine if your current computer's case is ATX or Micro-ATX.

The Advnet case you have is a micro ATX (mATX) case. I would suggest that you purchase an inexpensive ATX size case. You'll have more room to work and the potential for better air flow for cooling.

I have some very nice proprietor computer cases, and the motherboards were dead, and the processor speed wasn't much to talk about. So, I don't want to go with the original motherboards. So, How can I find...

So what do you have? That would be far more useful than telling us what you don't have...

A quick test would be to get a standard ATX (or as appropriate) form factor board and offer it up to see if the mounting holes and cut-outs for back panel connectors line up. If they do, you are in business.

As to what to put in, well that's a whole new can of worms...

This is resurrected from September 2013.

Motherboards from proprietary makes like Dell, Gateway, or what ever are specially made and will only fit their own cases. This is done on purpose so that you have to buy motherboards from them. If you look at the back of the case there are always funny cut outs, or the boards are an odd length.

Buy the case and buy off the shelf motherboards like Asus.

Will a mATX motherboard form factor fit into a case that has a ATX motherboard form factor?

it really depends on the compatabilty of the tower ... some towers can hold matx atx itx motherboards the way to find this out is to open the case and see if there are more ways than one to configure the motherboard stand offs most towers have a blue print of sorts etched into the metal next to the holes and it will say matx or atx or itx some are lettered like atx a-9 next to the hole or you can make a template by marking the holes from the mother board to a piece of paper and put the paper in the tower to see where the holes line up hope this helps

Where can i source a tower cd rom sprung door in silver for an advent T9304 pc

Well Advent is PC Worlds own brand. Personally I would forget about it and just move the drive forward in the case so it is flush with the front of the case. The Tech guys would probably just say it is not available just to get rid of you.

I need a motherboard that will fit in a Raidmax ATX1072BP Mid Tower ATX Computer Case!

Most desktop computer cases have a range of standard mount holes, standard offs.
I suggest you select a motherboard that suits your requirements.
To be sure that the motherboard will fit your case, take the motherboard mount base with you to the computer shop and place the motherboard of your choice on the base to see if the mounting holes line up.
You may need to upgrade the switch mode power supply to a higher power unit if the total power requirements is near the maximum the existing unit can deliver.

I would like to upgrade the RAM memory on my Advent 7011 how do I do it ?


First thing is to know how much yours now has.

Then go to:

This tells you what kind of memory your system takes.

NOTE: The max your computer will hold is 1 GB. (512MB X 2)

On that same page there should be an installation video link in the lower right corner. This will take you to a Youtube video that gives basic instructions to RAM replacemnet.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Lots of places on the 'net promote themselves as having replacement parts, but it would seem your search should start with:

Pc music keeps stopping and streeming

The broadband connection you are using is not supporting realtime streaming due to less bandwidth. Do not run any parallel downloads or video streaming. Upgrade to next bandwidth available at your provider to get continous streaming.

Advent PC change DVD Drive

On almost all CD-Roms and DVD-ROMS there is a very, very small pin-hole on the disk drive door located, usually in the middle lower third of the door... but not always. When you find it you will need to do the following:
  1. Take a medium or large sized paper clip and straighten it out so at least two of the clips sections are straight.
  2. Put the straightened wire into the hole and push it gently straight into the hole until you feel some resistance. This is the release mechanism for the drive door and track lock.
  3. You then push firmly and steadily into the release tab until the door and track pop out. It only will pop out about a half an inch or a little less, but it isn't locked any more.
  4. Now you can use your fingers and pull the tray the rest of the way out to retrieve you media
I hope this will resolve your problem, Good Luck

Wont fit the backport of the case

Today, the cases come with a 'generic' back port that pops out for specific motherboards. The Asus board should have come with a metal plate that replaces the case's version, and lines up the ports.
