There are several models of Advent laptops and as you have not told us
which one it is i have included a few of which maybe one of them will be yours i hope
Advent 7086 ---- Button next to the power button Advent 7096 ---- Button next to the power button Advent 7100 ---- Fn / F2 Advent 7104 ---- Fn / F2 Advent 7201 ---- wireless key top right and then Fn / F2 Advent 8117 ---- small slide switch on the front of laptop
hopefully one of these options may help you to activate your wireless switch
please let us know if this helped you
so that we may be able to help others
Manuals for these laptops are fairly difficult to find. So far, besides the link above, I have found one Web site that has Advent User Guides for all of the models including the 7086. The only downside to this solution is that it isn't free. 9manuals.com, which keeps coming up as the most relevant result, charges $5.98 for the Advent 7086 User Guide.
Try imputing the password with the caps lock on. You may have had the caps lock on by mistake when you set the password and not have know it. You wouldn't be the first to have done that. I speak from EXPERIENCE on this one. If that doesn't work, try booting into safe mode and see if it will let you bybass the password and you can reset it to a new one there. Let me know ! Thanks //D
Kev, This seems to be a common problem. Remove and reseat the memory modules. If that doesn't do it, remove the hard drive and all but one memory module and try to bring it up. If this works, add the other memory module and see if the whole thing doesn't come up. If not, get back to me for more ideas. Thanks! Ron-
