I think the 'split screen is actually your wallpaper
To find out if I'm right - if you right click the desktop - choose properties, then desktop.
On the right side of the window that opens - look at the middle button, it probably says Tile. click the arrow to the right and choose Center. Now click O.K.
Your wallpaper should now be one 'screen' probably with a coloured border around it.
Cheers.

Check your bios to see if there is a hard drive option for compatability mode, you should change this value perhaps. What are your options in your bios?

Advent 7084. Tried to change back to XP from Win7. Reformatted HD but install did not complete. Now machine will not run after Intel splash screen. I have tried pressing F10 repeatedly after switching on....


Did you use the Advent's built-in reformat and rebuild to get it back to XP Pro?

If you have a separate XP Pro CD or DVD, as opposed to that in a 'hidden' partition on the HD, your best best, so long as you have the installation key, is to start fresh with formatting the HD and, if it is large enough, splitting the HD into two partitions.

Then use one of them for the actual XP Pro partition. Build that first partition into XP Pro, and when it is working properly, only then do you format the second partition, and make it into the kind of space you need it to be.

You should have the ability to make it work now. So long as you have a legitimate installation key for XP Pro, you should be able to make this work properly.

I have 6 split screens on the display


This is definitely a failure in your graphics chip. The graphics needs to be reflowed in order for it to function again. Effective fixes are either a new motherboard, or repair existing one. Good company: www.revivemylaptop.com. They can give free advice and fantastic prices I find

HD screen split into 3 small screens!


The source display is set wrong. You'll need to disable 1080p on the source and/or limit it to the display capabilities of the set.

When i start up m,y advent 8117 i get a black screen with blue rectangle asking for password which i dont know enter bios setup it wont do anything till i enter said password getting suicidle


Sounds like someone put a password on your bios, therefore making it so you cant get into your computer...I would recommend pulling your HD bringing it to someone who can get your data off it. Or if you are computer literate get an HD external controller to turn it into an external harddrive then get your data off it. An example of this product would be here. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3276554&Sku=ULT40112

Year old advent netbook 4211b will not turn on,


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.

Will not boot give error code one long beep tone 2 short no screen no HD or display Tone will not happen if Memory is out . HD is not powering up not backlight to screen no fan sound this is a Toshiba...


Without knowing which bios chip is in the machine this will be quite difficult. One long and 2 short beeps, with some bios chips, means faulty graphics controller chip.

Format HD fails on armada 1592DMT


The safe bet is to go into the bios and choose "load Bios defaults" then restart. If your HD fails on the format command, it is probably bad.

Well my advent 5401 laptop sometimes turns on scroll lock on its own so i cant use half the keyboard unless i turn scroll lock off its not a major problem but if some1 knows if i might be pressing a button...


Check your bios and see if there's anything related to the scroll lock. I've seen that happen in the past and the solution was simply in the bios.
