Is there any error messages? Is your keyboard working? You can try F2 to enter the setup and see whether you can see the boot options and maybe you can press F8 at startup and use the safe mode to perform a system restore or use the Last Known Good Configuration option in the advance options with safe mode.

Why does my laptop turn itself off after i enter the settings f2 or f12


You cannot do this without installing an operating system first on the hard drive, that has the drivers for the advent laptop you are using.

It switches off because it cannot find the windows operating system.

Try and download a free copy of knoppix (Linux) to run from the CD/DVD drive to see what is on your hard drive.
KNOPPIX Live Linux Filesystem On CD

It will give you a windows like environment to use the laptop.

No recovery disks F8 gives 1 option full destructable recovery,and that dont work.


Maybe to use the recovery you need to press F12 or F10. Reguraly when you press F8 is use to: reboot, return to OS choises menu, safe mode, etc... but never to recovery option. Check the PC/Laptop owner manual. In some cases you need to press Ctrl+F12/F10 or Alt+F12/10.

I want to find the location of the ram ports on


Hi,
Turn the laptop off. Remove the battery and the AC power supply.
Turn the laptop upside down and look for a panel with one or two screws (there maybe more than one panel). Unscrew the panels to access the RAM compartment, it will look something similar to this >>>>>>
