    Well, if you live in sweden---you have 2 years warranty, but i dont think you do that so the warranty is one year.

    You can get it repaired...but it will cost..

    Good luck

I can only think of 2 things. it may have overheated to the point of damaging the RAM or it may have overheated or just moved the screen connection. either way there is no way you can fix this on your own and you will have to take it to a computer lab they will be able to help you alot more. sorry for the limited solution good luck with it.

Advent laptop overheating

Check the jack on the machine to see if it's loose or broken. Use a small screwdriver, and see if you can move it in any direction. If it is loose or broken, get it fixed imediately. A loose or broken jack can create an electrical arch which can do severe damage to the machine.

System warning pop-up

Are you sure that nothing is overheating? If your cpu fan is turning too slow it won't disipate the heat. Do you have a program showing cpu temp:? I would take the access off the bottom and make sure the cpu fan is clean. If that is not the problem I believe you can turn the warnings off in the bios settings

i have 1 as well and it broke too. this is


if its the cord's thats broken, its most likely the switch, more specifically the soldering where the wire connects to the switch is prolly broken. i just sawed my switch open w/ a knife, and took a look. now if a wire is loose in the switch, u can either solder it back on, or (in my case i always have the fan on anyway cuz of my **** dell computer overheating) rip the wire off the switch completely and just connected it w/ aluminum foil.
