Laptop turning off unexpectedly

My daughter's advent laptop (18 months old) turned off unexpectedly and wouldn't turn on again. I have now managed to get it to turn on again. If it's a bad battery but the laptop is connected to a mains power source could this recur. Does she need a new battery or new fan or something? Previously it said windows had discovered a corrupt i-pod - could this be the problem?

    Check to make sure the DC jack( where the power supply plugs in) is not faulty. Did you have to "wiggle" the jack to get the laptop to come on?

Check whether your computer detects the camera and if so try to install drivers for it. Else, its the hardware problem. Try asking a support from the laptop's brand technical support. Thank You.

Battery does not seem to hold charge on Advent 9115 laptop. 18 months old. Charged overnight. Switches off within half hour of switching on.


Sounds like your battery is dying.

Laptops should not be run on mains power all the time, it kills the battery. Should be run on battery until battery warning occurs, then plug in to recharge.

You'll need a new battery at this stage.

This is a boot config problem.

The fix will require that you have the Windows XP cd. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend in order to fix this. Once you have the cd, navigate to the following link for step by step instructons.

Advent laptop overheating


Check the jack on the machine to see if it's loose or broken. Use a small screwdriver, and see if you can move it in any direction. If it is loose or broken, get it fixed imediately. A loose or broken jack can create an electrical arch which can do severe damage to the machine.
