Question about Advent 4211c Notebook

2 Answers

I have an Advent 4211 with windows XP it was playing up and kept freezing so i tried to be helpful and started a stystem restore back to factory settings, but i had a rediculous blonde moment and forgot to plug the power lead into it and the battery died midway, it won't boot now, it says to install windows disc and click repair, but it didn't come with one and has no disc drive and it has this message File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000f Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data. Im not sure what to do now.

    Thanks for your help.
    Will this work on a netbook without an internal disc drive?
    will it recognise an external drive?
    thanks again

Dapending on the year your computer was manufactured , there might be a built in "Recovery Program" you can use to repair it . With the computer off , press the power button and pay attention to the screen in the lower left and right side of the screen for a brief message that says something like : For recovery options press F12.... Or perhaps some other F key to engage the recovery process. If you don't get the key in time, don't worry, turn it off and turn it back on again, thenj start pressing and releasing whichever F key it related. Hopefully, you will be able to use the options listed to recover your original boot / system start up files. If you don't have a recovery option, you will need a BART utilities CD-ROM disk or a new windows XP install disk . good luck and take your time .

You will need to purchase a restore disc to bring your computer back to life

Do as I did and buy one at this website on Ebay
It works great

My rebooted my advent 4211-b netbook to factory setting by the tech guys on the netbook but now my netbook wont start up, it says the window boot configuration data file does not contain a valid os entry


Welcome to Fixya

Error means the boot files are missing or damaged. Try to restore the computer using the disk that came with it instead of using the recovery console.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Hi! I can't find any way to get my Advent 4211-C (Windows XP OS) webcam working on Skype (the only webcam function I currently use). Cyberlink says there's "No available Captured Device". I don't...


Advent 4211 always require you to enable it everytime you turn the laptop on. it is Fn key + F10 I think. Look for the Function key at the top of your keyboard which has a picture of a webcam. Hold down the FN key at the bottom left, and then click on the correct 'F' key. You should see a little picture come up on the screen to say you have enabled your webcam. That should work.

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.

Reboot an advent notebook to original settings


the computer shoulda came with a disk and that would be your operating system disk so put it in, then start your computer and if it doesnt boot to the disk, then hit F2 and change the boot options and make it boot from the disk and so when it does boot, then thats when u can reinstall windows back to factory settings but i dunno about advent notebooks. in HP tho, u can do it from the start menu cuz the reinstall settings are already on your computer so ya dont need the disk

I have an Advent 4211 Netbook. When I switch on windows XP will not start, just takes me to the screen which offers Safe Mode, normally etc - but whichever I try it just comes back to this screen


XP is corrupted, most likely caused by a massive infection. Try a Repair. Follow this instructions http://michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm 
If this doesn't work (or goes back they way it is now very quickly) use a Linux Live-CD to backup all your files and reformat your pc and do a clean install.
