Why does my laptop turn itself off after i enter the settings f2 or f12


You cannot do this without installing an operating system first on the hard drive, that has the drivers for the advent laptop you are using.

It switches off because it cannot find the windows operating system.

Try and download a free copy of knoppix (Linux) to run from the CD/DVD drive to see what is on your hard drive.
KNOPPIX Live Linux Filesystem On CD

It will give you a windows like environment to use the laptop.

its overheating,check whether your fan is working, otherwise open it and clean it out, do not use a blower, the spinning fan can overcharge your motherboard and blow it

Advent 7111 narrow screen


If the display isn't going full screen, on that 15.4 inch TFT LCD screen, the problem is the screen Inverter, or LCD screen itself.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the screen Inverter.
It isn't a simple screen resolution setting that needs to be changed.

Primer:

An LCD screen does not produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Vikuiti1/BrandProducts/secondary/optics101/

It needs an additional light source.
The additional light source is a Backlight.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED's.
The Advent 7111 Notebook PC uses One CCFL,

http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=7111&brand=Advent&size=

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Average size is 2mm Thick. Length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height. 2mm is close to 1/16th of an Inch )

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

Primer over.

I don't have access to a Service Manual, for the Advent 7111 Notebook PC. I haven't had one come to my shop for repair.

I DO have years of experience at repairing laptops, and I see the Advent 7111 is just a basic laptop, as I HAVE repaired over the years.

If you wish, I can guide you step by step, in replacing the screen Inverter.

(MANY people go out, and buy an LCD screen, when the problem is a much less expensive screen Inverter. Afterwards they buy the screen Inverter. Too bad they didn't come here first)

[ The Advent 7111 Notebook PC is just a re-badged Quanta TW3M.
According to the source, you should see TW3M on the bottom of the laptop.

Advent rebooting on its own


Check your bios to see if there is a hard drive option for compatability mode, you should change this value perhaps. What are your options in your bios?

My screen on the advent roma 1000 goes dark


Hi,

The usual culprits are loose connections (this only happens when the lid is moved forwards or backwards). The other is the LCD inverter getting too hot.

In both cases you will need to disassemble the laptop lid to check the leads and the inverter itself for dry joints.

If you're not comfortable with disassembling the laptop yourself then i recommend that you take it to a reputable repair store to have it looked at.


Regards.

Advent 7098 faulty screen?


Angle the screen to the light. If you can see a faint screen image then it's probable that the backlight's inverter has either failed, it's cable has become damaged or the backlight has failed. Both of these can be tricky to replace unless you have the right tools, but can be done provided you can get a spare. Usually it's a tech job.

If the image is not there then it's either the screen itself, the graphics chip or, more likely, the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the motherboard.

You can rule out the graphics chip by plugging the laptop into a monitor.

Of course, the ultimate problem is that you've bought an Advent laptop! And most techs agree that Advent produce the worst laptops in the world. :(
