Question about Advent 4211c Notebook

1 Answer

I have an Advent 4211 (same as MSI Wind) and the power button just doesn't srat the netbook up. I've tested the power supply with a volt meter and its fine. When connected and turned on, the notebook doesn't show any charging light on. I've been told in the past that static electricity can build up in the switch, preventing power up. Heard of this? How can I release this? Thanks if you can help.

    Hi Elix0411

    Tried your rest procedure and unfortunately it didn't work. I still have the same issue that with the power adapter working (tested with meter) I get no power light on the laptop at all all when connected and powered up. So, does it sound like a power supply problem, more than mother board or memory? Sounds like a visit to the repair shop for me then. Thanks, NJS

First of all do a hard reset.

  1. Hold down the power button for about ten seconds until it shuts down.
  2. Unplug the power cord and all accessories connected to the laptop.
  3. Take the battery out.
  4. Press the power button in the front again. Hold it for 60 seconds and release.
  5. Put the battery back in and plug the power cord.
  6. Turn it on.

It also could be a memory related problem. Try re seating the memory module, just remove it from the slot on the motherboard and install it back. Try installing the memory module into the other slot (if it's available). If you have two memory modules installed, try removing them one by one and start the laptop just with one memory module installed.

Another possibility is a power issue on the motherboard. It has to be replaced.

    Your power supply or power adapter is good I believe. I have a strong feeling that the DC JACK is damaged. It needs to be soldered on. Go ahead and send it in for a repair.

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,

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 ]

I need to install my webcam driver of 4211-c so plz find out the driver tell me how to find out the webcam driver


According to the manufacturers website (Advent is actually a rebranded MSI Wind U100) you shouldnt need any divers as it uses the "This device uses the native driver bundled in operating system." It should just work. You can find more information here http://www.msi.com/product/nb/U100.html#/?div=Driver&os=XP%2032
