Question about Advent Netbook

1 Answer

Year old advent netbook 4211b will not turn on,

My year old advent netbook 4211b was working fine, turned it off, then went to switch it on today and it will not turn on. Power light lit, green light to say hard disk is active not showing apart from brief glimpse, only light I can get to show working it light for wifi. I have removed battery and held power button to discharge static as advised on other web pages but does nothing. Put battery back in and plugged power cable in battery light comes on but nothing else happens, no start up. Help please.

    Hi again,

    found the cmos cell, unplugged as told and waited over ten minutes, refixed but still not working. No sign of life when switched on. Thanks for trying, will take out hard drive, put in cradle and obtain data from it then forget Netbook.

    Regards Sue

When you press power button press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you can see bios screen then you not need to refix RAM memory or reset bios.
IF you can see bios screen then lake sure harddisk is detected and SATA is disable then save settings and exit.
Also when you power up press F8 key if you able to see safe mode and other menu then you have change screen resolution enter in enable vga mode.
Then open control panel and display then change scree resolution to 1024*768.
Then apply and ok.
But if you can't see bios screen or nothing in dispaly then you have to refix RAM memory .
Check in back side there is 1 plate open it then refix RAM memory.
If still not get display then open back cover of laptop then find motherbord on it then pull cmos cell for 10 minutes so all settings go to defaults then again refix cmos cell then check.

Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

Where is the wireless switch on my advent 4211B netbook? I am being told I need to switch it on. If I need to press Fn and another key, do I press them at the same time?


Go to the Control Panel, click on "Device Manager", click on "Network Adapters" and select the wireless adapter you use. Right-click on it and select "Enable". That should turn it on.

Power light on but nobody's home?


The power supplies in most all the smaller combo units are prone to failure. They feed both the TV and the VCR and are underdesigned as they try to keep the cost of a combo affordable.
I've never had much success solving them - sorry
They always break that last time!
