Question about PC Laptops

2 Answers



I have an ADVENT 7109 Laptop that seems to no longer turn on, when you press the power button, the Drive light turns on and another light on the side that looks like a light bulb lights up but that is it. There is no sound coming from the machine, not even a fan or drive noise, it was working fine last night but is doing nothing now.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks Phil

Remove all the cables etc inc the power lead
Remove the battery
Hold the power button down for 20 seconds
Replace battery & Re-start. If you are as lucky as me it will be 'Hey-Presto' and lots of happiness.

My laptop wont turn on and yet its fully charge. The power light keeps on blinking with orange and when i push the start button, it turns green and when i stop pushing, it turns orange again-blinking.


This sounds like there is a problem with the battery.
Remove the AC mains power and take out the battery from the laptop. Plug AC power back in and try booting the laptop up.
If it boots up let it boot into Windows/linux and then shut the computer down as normal. Remove AC power and re-insert the battery. Plug AC back in and power it up, see if it does the same thing. If it does the same thing the battery is faulty. If it boots up with the battery in then there was a glitch.

Any idea why my Dell D610 is not booting up and showing a dark screen only


You can try the following steps:

1. Unplug the power from the laptop and remove the battery then press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds

2. Put the battery back in, turn on the laptop without plugging the power to the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue)

3. Remove the battery and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, after that, plug the power cord and turn on the laptop (if this didn't resolve the issue)

4. Remove the power cord and press the power button of the laptop for 15 seconds, disconnect the Hard drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnec the hard drive

5. Remove the Optical Drive and turn on the laptop (If this didn't resolve the issue) reconnect the optical drive

6. Remove the memory chip, if you have 2 memory chips installed in the 2 memory slots (remove both of them) now test each one of the memory to each slots turning on the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue) Put the memory chip back in

7. Reseat the CPU and try to make sure that it's installed properly. Turn on the laptop and test if it's gonna work (If this didn't resolve the issue)

8. Reseat the power cords coming from the power supply of the laptop and test the laptop. (If this didn't resolve the issue)

9. Disconnect everything and just leave the CPU installed and turn on the laptop.

10. If all else fails, there's a big possibility that the problem may be with the power supply or the motherboard of the laptop.

(Note: you may try to clean your computer if there is a large amount of dust. You may try to remove the CMOS battery)

Hi my advent laptop says its wireless enabled but when i have tried to set it uo with my wireless router it says i have no connection i have been told by my internet provider to get intouch with advent but...


You may have turn the wireless radio on first before you can connect to the internet.

Look down the sides of the laptop for a small slide switch and push it, an LED light should come on.

If you can't find a switch then hold down Fn and hit the F2 key.

Laptop wont turn on philips freevents x51

The most likely problem is that your Hard Drive has Died.

If you can readily access another Laptop HDD, try it and see.

Other than that, I'd say the Motherboard has decieded to give up the Ghost.

Just Remember, A Laptops life expectancy is 3 years, after that you are treading on thin ice keeping Important Documents on it.

Hi Ernie,

There should be a tiny little hole on the front of the CD drive, next to where you would usually press the button to eject it. Turn the laptop off (or at least wait until the CD stops spinning) and insert a straight paper clip into the hole. You will have to insert it perfectly straight and apply a little pressure. Doing this should manually pop the CD tray open.

Hope the helps!

Advent 9912 wont turn on

remove the ac adapter
take the battery out
be sure nothing is connected with your laptop
then press and hold the power button for 60 secs to drain static as it is the most probable reason laptops stops working.
then connect the ac adapter only and without the battery try powering on the system
if it powers on
you can again shut it down
insert the battery
it should surely power on
