Repair manual for advent 4214 netbook - Computers & Internet

    Thanks Tim I was sure that would be your answer as I have spent hors trawling the Net.It is not my Netbook but the Grandson's of a friend.It will not boot up only cursor shows on a Black Screen.The F9 recovery will not work and I can get into Bios ok and everything looks ok.
    I was told they got a Virus and/or Spyware and the Avast Home Edition Alarm went off plus Avast Window Popped Up but before they had time to read it the Screen went blank as the Netbook Shutdown.When this happens with my PC and Laptop Avast Home Edition deals with it and they keep running.I suspect very severe Spyware or Virus has wrecked the Hard Drive.I have tried to get at the Hardrive to see its spec in detail and test it in another Laptop and then Purchase a new one.I could only access it by removing the Keyboard and surrounding Facia with Mouse Pad,Power Switch etc.I could not remove the Keyboard alone as I have done when repairing many other Laptops.
    When I removed the Keyboard and Facia I had to disconnect the Mousepad and Keyboard Connectors to get to the Motherboard and Harddrive.I can reconnect the Mousepad but not the Keyboard.Even if I take out the Motherboard and then connect the Mousepad and Keyboard I will have no room for Screwdrivers to reconnect the Motherboard.
    I think I agree with you these Netbooks canno be repaired.Any help will be appreciated.

    remove the keyboard from the trackpad put the trackpad assembly back and screw into place. then you will see that there is enough space to connect the keyboard easily then pop the keyboard back in place

There is no repair manual for this device... it would have to be thousands of pages long for all possibilities of things you could need to repair. What exactly is going on with the system? If it is hardware problem, netbooks are virtually impossible to repair. If it is out of warranty, and has a hardware issue, you are almost certainly going to need to replace the device. But please let me know your exact issue and I will see if it can be fixed. If it can I can definitely help you with that.

Thanks so much, let me know

Tim

    Wow! That is a nasty one ! :( So were you able to pull out the hard drive though and verify if it is working or not? Getting the keyboard back in from the top is extremely difficult.. I believe they build it all together in the factor, and then build it into the case. I personally have never seen anyone successfully reattach a keyboard to one of these netbooks once it has been removed. Let me look around and see what I can find, but it is going to be very very difficult to get it back in there. You may have to send it in to Advent :(. I am still checking here.. let me know if you found anything on the hard drive. You may need to reload it from a network style boot, sometimes that F9 style recover is very unreliable..

    I have not removed and tested the Hard Drive yet.I do not see any point if I cannot find a way to re-attach the Keyboard.If I do re-attach the Keyboard I will just put it back together and return it advising my friend to get an estimate for repair from the Shop they bought it from and if that is too expensive buy a Popular Make of Laptop.The latter was my advice when they purchased it Christmas 2008.
    I am pleased I am not alone at having met my match with an Advent Netbook.If you come up with any idea let me know.
    Many Thanks

I need a internal fan for a advent 4214 note book ....any idea where I can purchase one


You will have to take it to pc world as its their own brand. They probably wont give you any info unless they repair it for you. Thats the problem when buy a shops own brand. It may be cheap but costs you more in the long run.

My advent netbook cannot start windows xp. what can i do?


You can perform a restore on it. Refer to manual on how to repair Windows by repairing or restoring. Alternatively, start you computer up and keep tapping F8. When loads of options come up on the screen, you should see "Repair my computer" or something similar. Use arrow keys on keyboard to select and hit enter. That should load you into recovery/repair options
