What fies on recovery partition

Did you use a Factory Recovery DVD supplied by the cpmputer manufacturer? Or did you load the OS from a Windows Vista DVD? If you didn't use the Computer's Factory Recovery disk the recovery partition is gone, when you loaded the Windows Vista DVD and formatted the HDD. That is, if I understant your statement. If you had your HDD partitioned into 2 secions, 1 your OS and another for whatever, your OS partition, containing the recovery, has been formatted. For example: C , being your OS and D, being your recovery , are one partition.

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.


An LCD screen does not produce light by itself,

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,

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)

Post back in a Comment.


[ 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 7113 laptop very slow would like to return it to factory settings but dont know how help

After researching all the information online, I have put up the maximum possible detailed steps to help you out:

Your Advent computer uses the latest recovery system that doesn't require any CDs or DVDs to restore your PC to it's original factory condition.

1) Restart your Computer.
2) Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:

Non-destructive recovery: this option will restore Windows, supplied applications, and drivers. This option will not destroy your documents or programs. These will be backed up along with the registry. These are restored at the end of the recovery process.

To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.

System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows®, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.

System Recovery - Quick format: this option will erase your hard drive including your personal files. Windows, supplied applications and drivers will be reinstalled.

Select the Non-destructive recovery option and press Next.
You will be informed about System Restore in Windows, click Yes.
The recovery will begin. Once this is complete click Restart.

Here are some additional information:

a) Press the ALT and D keys at the Windows style recovery menu options to access a command prompt. This will allow access to C: drive.

b) The command prompt will default to c:\minint\system32 where you can run a variety of tools including CHKDSK.EXE.

For more information on these options, please read the Advent recovery trouble-shooter.

Advent recovery trouble-shooter:

If a user is experiencing recovery problems on an Advent PC, then try to follow these steps.

Note: These steps will remove all personal data and all applications installed after the PC was purchased. Where possible ensure that all data and personal files are backed up BEFORE trying these destructive diagnostic steps.

Check the integrity of the recovery CD, or the update CD.
It is possible to verify the integrity of the recovery CD, or the update CD from within the Recovery programme.

Boot from the recovery C.
At the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’, press ‘R’.
Once in the System Recovery screen, press ALT + D to access the WinPE command prompt.
Type in Xcopy D:\*.* /E /V C:\ and press Enter.
D:\ is the CD ROM drive letter
C:\ is the HDD
/E copies everything
/V verifies the data with a CRC check
f) If there is an error with the CD, then you will get the message:

File creation error – Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

g) If there are no errors, then you will be left at a prompt again.

If Windows® is accessible, then boot from the recovery CD.
At the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’, press ‘R’.
Once in the System Recovery screen, press ALT + D to access the WinPE command prompt as below:
Type COPYSI and hit Enter. This will unhide the user's smartimage (this may take a few minutes to complete).
Return to Windows® & copy the contents of the C:\Update CD\ folder to CD (N.B. Do not copy the ‘Update CD’ folder itself). Ask the user to label this ‘UPDATE CD’.
Start with the recovery CD ROM in the CD drive.
At the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’, press CTRL + BACKSPACE to get the hidden menu as below:
Choose option:4 (Clear the partition table of drive 0x80). Once you have selcted this, you will be returned to the Press 'R' screen.
Choose option:5 (Erase the Master Boot Record of drive 0x80). Once you have selcted this, you will be returned to the Press 'R' screen.
Choose option:7 (Create a primary partition on drive 0x80). Do not restart the machine during this process. Option 7 may sit for up to 10 minutes with a flashing cursor as it creates the partition. If the HDD LED is flashing, then you know that the process is proceeding.
Once the HDD partition has been created you will be returned to the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’ screen. Press ‘R’.
The recovery should go straight into a full destructive recovery, and will ask for the update CD which we have created.

Hope this Helps.

Please feel free to ask further questions.

Does my advent 7111 have a bluetooth device and if so, how do i turn it on? Or...can i install bluetooth on this laptop?

This lapotp doesnt have bluetooth I'm afraid, the newer Advents do. Best bet is to buy a USB bluetooth dongle which only costs a few pounds and you can pklug it into any USB port and be running within seconds
