Question about Advent Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Why my Advent CPU (model DT2410) switches on and off in every 20 seconds?

While I switch on the CPU, it goes to sleep mode in 20 sec by itself and it tries to switch on again by itself. It keeps doing the same and I never get it on to work.

On sleep mode, would not wake even if i slide the switch and hold it for 20 seconds.

The hard reset takes 45 seconds sliding the button, It also might have run out of battery which puts it into a mode that looks like sleep mode

Shuts off after 23 seconds....

In most cases when the microwave stops @ 23 seconds it's the Magnetron which has failed, and is shorting to earth.

Either that or the magnetron isn't getting the right signal from the inverter board. It gives it 20 seconds to get the right signal or it shuts itself off.

Sleep mode will not stay on

There is an option called wake-on-LAN that will wake up your PC if some traffic comes into it from the ethernet.  You will want to disable that feature. 
You might find it under setup when you boot you computer, or you might also find it under control panel / power.
