You will need to do a repair install of the windows operating system. This can be problematic on netbooks with no CD drive unless you have access to an external USB CD drive and a copy of the operating system.

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.
Thanks, Gary

My advent netbook starts up saying Insert Boot media in selected Boot Device and press a key. on my netbook there is no disc drive to insert anything

The system is showing signs of issues with the hard drive, so boot to bios and reset defaults and see if the system will boot.
If not, then you will need either a bootable USB drive with you OS image loaded so you can try to attempt repairs or a USB optical drive that you can use to boot to your Operating System.
If you know the keystroke, most newer systems have built in diagnostics (Try the F12 menu) and see if the hard drive has failed.

My advent netbook cannot start windows xp. what can i do?

You can perform a restore on it. Refer to manual on how to repair Windows by repairing or restoring. Alternatively, start you computer up and keep tapping F8. When loads of options come up on the screen, you should see "Repair my computer" or something similar. Use arrow keys on keyboard to select and hit enter. That should load you into recovery/repair options

My friend has a advent 4211-b netbook was working fine until it would not let him load xp or reboot in any mode it just looks as if going to load then goes straight back to load windows normaly

Try to start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.
