Debbie, I can't find anything on this that would cause it with a keyboard command. Lets do this; lets roll back the system to the last restore point before your one year old confused us both. LOL....
Click on Start Menu and then select HELP & Support
in the search box type SYSTEM RESTORE
when the options come up look for RUN SYSTEM RESTORE WIZARD and follow the prompts to the day before the issue was created, or the closest date available before the problem.
When the system rolls back we will see if that fixes your problem. (It's not as scary as it sounds)
Let me know if this works for you! //Don

My Advent 5421 Touchpad Is Not Working!!!


Advent laptop computers are equipped with a touchpad and two buttons that service the function of an external mouse. The touchpad can be turned on or deactivated, depending on the user's preference. It's not difficult to either activate or deactivate it.

Power up the computer. Connect a plug-and-play computer mouse to a free USB port on the laptop. The mouse is just temporary to help you get the touchpad working again. Locate the touchpad icon, which is in the lower right-hand side of the screen. The icon will appear as a gray square or rectangle, with two rectangular buttons underneath. Use the mouse to double-click on the touchpad icon, opening a window on your laptop screen. Inside the touchpad window, click the option labeled "Enable Device". Select other options for the touchpad, such as pointer speed and shape. Click "Apply", then "OK". Disconnect the mouse from the laptop.

Looking for manual for advent 9115


It seems there's no free manual for this model, if you wish to buy one, check out here (click here), scroll down to the middle of the page and locate "Advent 9115" and then click "Buy Now" [I can't guarantee since I haven't bought one from them, it's on your own risk].


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Battery does not seem to hold charge on Advent 9115 laptop. 18 months old. Charged overnight. Switches off within half hour of switching on.


Sounds like your battery is dying.

Laptops should not be run on mains power all the time, it kills the battery. Should be run on battery until battery warning occurs, then plug in to recharge.

You'll need a new battery at this stage.

When using some of the programs such as MS-EXCEL, the mouse pointer behaves as it has a mind of it's own. It starts jumping up and down and behaves erratically not allowing the control using touchpad. I...


first, try cleaning the touchpad WELL with a cloth damp with windex. If still no good, you should try to remove the keyboard, disconnect and reconnect the touchpad cable that goes to the mainboard.

hope this helps

Advent 9115 manual


Wow. It's very hard to find it seems.

If you have a Recovery CD, it really, REALLY, should be located on there somewhere (search for .pdf or .doc files on the cd when it's in your drive).

Otherwise, you might have to register for free with these guys to get support.

Keyboard probs advent 9115 laptop


Sounds like your num lock has been toggled on by mistake. Look for a key that says NmLK. It will be in the same color blue. That key may also be the scroll lock key(ScrLk) that should solve your problem.


Thanks

Travelmate 2310 keyboard and touchpad problem


Boot up the system (without the battery).
When the system runs normaly then place the battery on its normal bay.
Shut down bij removing the power from the system.
* Make sure you have not installed any Windows power saving tools, meaning let it run on the battery till it dies *
Wait till the systems shuts down by itself.
Boot your system again (with the battery in its bay and everything will work out fine.
Shuting down by removing the power support (AC) booting up AND your keyboard with touchpad will work again.
So intill you have a new battery, you need to shut-down by removing the AC power and leave the battery in its bay.
You can not shut-down on the normal way any more untill you have replaced the battery.
