    Please check with the software that comes with your laptop. This auto dimming of screen can also be adjusted with the vendor software so that it's dimmed to save power but at a readable brightness level.


    Or manually press the [Fn] + [F?] that has a sun lable (should have 2, 1 goes brighter, 1 dimmer).

I have been given a Advent 4213 and I can't turn it on?


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Hi i have a laptop advent 8109 i need to open it


Remove panel at the back, remove keyboard from prongs at the top, remove HDD, remove screws holding down the laptop, remove heatsink, remove fan, remove ODD connector, lift out motherboard at an angle. Its really something that needs to be shown, but thats the order in which you need to do it. If you can figure out the "in-betweens", you will be on your way to a cheap repair!

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.
