Advent 9912- Powering up

I agree ... no manual!! what are techy idiots like me supposed to do!
firstly ive had problems powering up. this was after using it for one month with no problems. I took it into pc world who looked at me like an idiot, too the battery out,held the power button down, replaced the battery... and of course it worked!! this has now happened again except the same action is not working. Can anyone throw any lght on this please?

    Great thanks... and congratulations!!

    I was surprised when you said that you thought there was a manual as no one else could find one, but I understand what you mean about them being similar.

It looks like theres an easy solution to ur prob though I havnt got full details.
what pc world did is common.but you either know this or dont and u will never know until ur told.
I went into pcworld once and asked for some dos disks,they looked at me like ive two heads and informed me that dos doesnt exist,I didnt know whether to laugh or punch their lights out as Im a computor technition and use dos platforms quite often.in xp repair at startup this is a dos platform.almost every outside of windows to repair pc's is a dos.
Anyway if ur looking for a manual that explains everything about ur pc and has a very informative trouble shooter;get back to me with ur model details and I'll mail u one.

    hi ;sorry about being so long;my mrs had baby boy this morning so been a bit busy.Ive had a good search for a manual for you but cant find ur model;but the trouble shooting sections I mentioned in most manuals are basically the same,giving you an extensive insight and answers(step by step)

    the only real difference with a manual for ur model is that it would give u details of whats what.which you probably already know.

    so if you give your email I'll send a manual to you in an extention.

    file is pdf so youll need adobe acrobat installed if not already installed.if you havnt got it you can download of net free.

    if ur still having that problem.bootup windows and before it loads press and hold power until it turns off.restart.you may get get a message saying checking disk because windows didnt load properly.this is a good thing because not only will it check disk but it will repair any errors before start.

    you can use check disk from the dos prompt in windows(c:/chkdsk)but this only checks the windows enviroment whereas the other one checks ur disk structure.

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
