You will have to get the display changed and this is the tough part as the cost might need an estimate.
So check this out with the dealer as there is no other option.

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

Advent 4211 screen to base connection problem


Video Cable

The Video Cable connects to the motherboard.

It then runs along under the Left Hinge, and connects to the back of LCD screen.

{LED backlighting. Does not use a screen Inverter]

Due to just normal opening, and closing of the laptop; the Video Cable may be pinched.

This can cause the connection of the Video Cable TO motherboard, to be loose; and/or LCD screen.

Solution is to partially disassemble the laptop, and PHYSICALLY make sure the connection at motherboard is tight.
Visual inspection will NOT do.

Connection at back of LCD screen needs to be Physically checked also. (Try to plug in tighter)

Also visually inspect the sheath of the Video Cable, for apparent signs of damage.
Any signs of damage to the sheath, may mean damage to the tiny wires inside the Video Cable.
(Stretched/Broken)

Also due to the age of the laptop, suspect cracking of the insulation, of the wires inside the Video Cable.
If you have a multimeter, set it to OHM's (1K), and check continuity of every wire in the Video Cable.
Or take it to a small computer store, and have the resident tech check it.

The Advent 4211 is just a rebadged MSI Wind U100, according to my findings,

Disassembly guide,

That's the problem, the Video Cable,

[ In the photo, the large connector at bottom plugs into the LCD screen.
The smaller connector at the upper right plugs into the motherboard.
The separate black wire you see with the eyelet on it, is a Ground wire ]

Advent 7111 narrow screen


If the display isn't going full screen, on that 15.4 inch TFT LCD screen, the problem is the screen Inverter, or LCD screen itself.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the screen Inverter.
It isn't a simple screen resolution setting that needs to be changed.

http://www.laptoppowerjacks.co.uk/advent-inverter/advent-7111-7107-8315-lcd-screen-inverter-as023217127-iv09140t-lf.html

Primer:

An LCD screen does not produce light by itself,

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3M/en_US/Vikuiti1/BrandProducts/secondary/optics101/

It needs an additional light source.
The additional light source is a Backlight.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED's.
The Advent 7111 Notebook PC uses One CCFL,

http://www.screencountry.com/index.php?section=products&model=7111&brand=Advent&size=

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Average size is 2mm Thick. Length is almost as long, as the LCD screen is in height. 2mm is close to 1/16th of an Inch )

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

Primer over.

I don't have access to a Service Manual, for the Advent 7111 Notebook PC. I haven't had one come to my shop for repair.

I DO have years of experience at repairing laptops, and I see the Advent 7111 is just a basic laptop, as I HAVE repaired over the years.

If you wish, I can guide you step by step, in replacing the screen Inverter.

(MANY people go out, and buy an LCD screen, when the problem is a much less expensive screen Inverter. Afterwards they buy the screen Inverter. Too bad they didn't come here first)

Post back in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ The Advent 7111 Notebook PC is just a re-badged Quanta TW3M.
According to the source, you should see TW3M on the bottom of the laptop.

When i open laptop screen beyond 70 degree angle screen blanks out i then have to close d completly then re open lid making sure ot to exceed 70 degree angle


I suspect a broken wire feeding the screen.
Either take it to a computer repair centre or remove the case and check it out for yourself as it may be a plug not making good contact.
Be careful if you do!

Advent 7098 faulty screen?


Angle the screen to the light. If you can see a faint screen image then it's probable that the backlight's inverter has either failed, it's cable has become damaged or the backlight has failed. Both of these can be tricky to replace unless you have the right tools, but can be done provided you can get a spare. Usually it's a tech job.

If the image is not there then it's either the screen itself, the graphics chip or, more likely, the ribbon cable that connects the screen to the motherboard.

You can rule out the graphics chip by plugging the laptop into a monitor.

Of course, the ultimate problem is that you've bought an Advent laptop! And most techs agree that Advent produce the worst laptops in the world. :(

How to repair the screen of Advent 7092 Window XP version. Help Please!


This may not be damage, it could be the wrong driver.
Go to the control panel, look at the device menu to see if the display is possibly marked as not working correctly.
Then look at the display settings to see if new driver alternatives have appeared.

Incorrect drivers can damage a display; I've seen it happen (unfortunately).
