Advent 6415 Combo laptop (aka Gericom N340S8) service manual/specs required

Hi there. I'm hitting a brick wall trying to find a service manual for my Advent 6415 Combo laptop. It is also know as a Gericom N340S8

Can anyone please tell me where I can get a PDF version of the service manual. I also need to know how large a HDD this will take. i.e. does it support 48bit LBA so I can stick a HDD > 137GB in it?

I found something written in German on the net. But I would prefer an English written version - LOL.

Here's one.

Go all the way to the bottom of the page for the ftp link. They have the service and the user manual. I just downloaded it and it is in English.

HI there! I am using a targus universal wall power adaptor for laptops, it has an output of 19.5 V and 90 W. I was wondering if I could use this to charge my UK laptop from ADVENT. The charger for this has...


The wattage is to different, the wattage for the adapter is 90watts, and the charge for the advent is only 65w.

You can always try it, but you risk damaging your battery, or motherboard.

Anybody got the driver link to download for an advent laptop as my function keys dont show on screen but work fine


The Advent support site is rubbish. All drivers/utils they list are easily available else where. The ones that can't be found elsewhere aren't given. Useful. However...

For OLDER Advent Laptops/Notebooks and most Advent PCs are made by 'Medion' a German firm. Their website supplies ALL drivers, utils etc for your laptop by the Medion (MD) model number. This you will find on the back of your laptop and will usually begin with a MD- reference (ignore the Advent model number ****).

Stick this model number, or your serial number if you're using a PC, in here: http://www1.medion.de/downloads/?lang=uk and it will list all the applicable drivers for your notebook.

For NEWER Advent Laptops/Notebooks a Tawainese company called ECS manufacturer the Notebooks. You will find the 'ECS' number on the back of your laptop, similar to ECS-G610 for example (thats the model number for the Advent 7091). This can then be used to search for relevent drivers/BIOS' etc here:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWeb/Downloads/Category_Download.aspx?Categoryid=3&MenuID=37&LanID=9

For MUCH OLDER Advent Laptops/Notebooks a company named as Gericom manufactured the notebooks (also known as Gericon in Germany it seems) and also sold under the name's of 'Mecer', 'Acer' and 'Uniwill', among others. These have model numbers similar to N340S8 etc.

Tracking drivers for these is pretty hard, but these guys seem to still have them on an old section of their site:

http://ftp.mustek.co.za/drivers/list.php?dir=Repository%2F
and by product name (which wasn't used by Advent)
http://www.acomp.hu/pub/gericom/Notebook/
also from the actual source (Gericom) but by product name again

Advent 7016 (AKA Gericom Blockbuster 251S)main


It was the BATTERY all along !!!!! Incidentally the new battery bought mail order from China was no good as it would not boot-up the laptop. The curious thing was that if the laptop was booted-up using mains power, the Chinese battery would then last long enough to play an entire feature film and more! The "Tech Guys" test battery was also no good and the technicians at that well known computer store claimed that the laptop was faulty, WRONG! Eventually I bought a scrap laptop of a similar type with a view to swapping the power controller board. The scrap laptop happened to have a battery fitted so the "scrap" battery was tried. Voila! all came good! After THREE dud batteries (including the test battery at the computer store) the problem was solved.



One can surmise that during the boot-up, computers take a heavy power draw. One can also surmise that the Lithium Ion batteries have current limiters built-in in order to prevent them from catching fire. If the current limiter is set too low the laptop will not boot. Those 2.8 GHz Pentium 4s were always renowned as hungry power-guzzlers and that was the problem.



The sad thing was that once it was all fixed-up, defragged and memory maxed-out, it got stolen in a burglary. Shame as it was a really good machine. These days I ONLY buy crappy low powered computers as why donate an i5 or i7 machine to your local drug addicts?

According to UKT support this is a rebadged Uniwill L75118
http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/9117.htm
Gives a general spec sheet.

http://www.uniwill.com/UserDownload/l75ii/l75ii.php
Has a download for the pdf manual at the bottom.

I have one too and am busily trying to find out if I can upgrade the Processor.
According to the manual it is possible to have a t5700 2.2GHz processor in it.

He will have to go back to an older version of the Logitech QuickCam software. I don't know how far he has to go back. I had the same problem and went back to version 9.5 and the problem went away.

You can find older version of Logitech's QuickCam software on their FTP site.
