    I have that same problem. My battery light has been yellow since I had it. It actually went to green for the first time yesterday after I had been using it for a couple of hours, but I have just used it without mains power and the battery light has gone to yellow again.
    Also I can make out why the cursor keeps jumping so that I find myself typing in the middle of a document.

I have a Advent 8315 the turns itself off when unplugged even when its fully charged


Try removing your battery, wait 30 seconds and plug it back in and see if it powers up. If not, take your battery out, put it in the freezer overnight, take it out and let it sit in room temperature for 12 hours and then put it back in ....DO NOT put it in right out of the freezer and into the laptop ...let it warm up .... after 12 hours, try it and see if it shows 0% and charging ...if it still shows 100% charged, your battery is shot. Let me know how it goes

The screen brightness changes due to plug in or battery power


This is quite common actually I see it a lot. There really isn't any reason, it seems that when on batteries it trys to save power by Dimming Down, but it often just mucks up.. I always now set it via the keyboard keys. whenever I change from power adapter, to battery.

I have an advent 8315 and last week i powered on and connected to the internet when it just shut down. All lights went off and would not restart or turn on since.Have never had the battery in it use only...


If you have a battery to test it with and there is still no power then a common defect is the power jack itself. You would need to have the technical proficiency to troubleshoot that circuit. If you do not have a battery to test that possibility you might ask a repair shop to just put one in before you buy one as the possibility of a bad motherboard exists. Steve Medley

Advent 8315 Laptop


One of the best sources for these types of things is online at a site called newegg.com. You can search based on the Manufacturer and model number of your Laptop. If that fails you try the Manufacturers website, they will sometimes list where replacements can be purchased or well on themselves.

Have you tried the folowing:
Go to start, select setting, and select system st the bottom, and select Backlight. In backlight you will fid different options at the bottom, select brightness and you can set your brightness levels on your battery mains aor power mains. I suggest you keep it low as it saves battery enegy.
