Advent T100 All in one system

I have Advent T100. It does not boot up all that happens is the hard drive spins I have checked the power and it always has 12v supply to the motherboard. A few times the fans have spun for about 5 seconds, if this hapens when they lose power so does the hard drive but the motherboard still has 12v power to it and through the cable to the motherboard plug. Is the motherboard at fault?

When I power on my Advent Tacto the Advent logo comes up and then just sits there. I have tried break on power up but that makes no difference.


Removing the hard drive will not boot to the BIOS. Try pressing F2 when your laptop is booting. Change the boot order to your hard drive.

By pressing DEL can you enter the BIOS setup screen? If so, can you see the hard drive designated? It is usually in the initial screen where it lists all recognized peripherals, including your DVD drive and (hopefully) your hard drive.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

My advent netbook starts up saying Insert Boot media in selected Boot Device and press a key. on my netbook there is no disc drive to insert anything


The system is showing signs of issues with the hard drive, so boot to bios and reset defaults and see if the system will boot.
If not, then you will need either a bootable USB drive with you OS image loaded so you can try to attempt repairs or a USB optical drive that you can use to boot to your Operating System.
If you know the keystroke, most newer systems have built in diagnostics (Try the F12 menu) and see if the hard drive has failed.

My Gateway Gt 5220 will not turn on. Technicaly it does turn on ex: hard drive spin processor click couple time power brick and processor fan spins hard drive light flickers couples time and cd drive will...


sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

The screen won't come on the blue light on the power button is on but nothing else is happening


Please follow the diagnosis outlined in this article to check whether the backlight lamp or the inverter board are the root cause of the problem or not:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6430776-troubleshooting_laptop_power_failures

If you connect the external monitor & nothing is displayed on it, then this means that both the backlight lamp & the inverter board are fine. The main indicators in these cases are the sound, and the hard drive LED on the laptop's case. If the laptop sounds just like it always does for a minute or two after being turned on, it means it's going ahead and booting the operating system, but the video processor or part of the motherboard circuit for video output has failed. If the laptop just sits there and beeps when you turn it on, or if you hear the fan but not the hard drive chuckling with its active LED flashing away, it means the laptop isn't getting as far as trying to boot the operating system. While this could be due to any number of hardware problems, the most common and easiest to troubleshoot or repair is RAM failure. If your laptop has two RAM modules installed, try booting with just one and then the other in the primary slot. If your laptop only has one RAM module, you might consider buying one online from a site with a good memory selector, like Crucial.com

My netook ADVENT 4211C is saying BOOTMGR missing I do not have CD Rom in it I am trying install windows xp by usb but it is not reading the USB What should I do ....???


Hi,

You should be able to recover the operating system from the hidden partition on the hard drive.

  2. Highlight The TechGuys Recovery and press the Enter key.
  3. This will load into the recovery program.
  4. Select Reinstall Windows by clicking on the circle to the left.
  5. Click the right arrow.
  6. Put a tick in the box next to Start Full Destructive Recovery.
  7. Click the right arrow to start Recovery.
  8. When Recovery has completed, click the right arrow to restart the system.
  9. Your computer will then return you to its initial out-of-box experience.

Note - The data on your hard drive will be permanently deleted. Please save all important files and documents to an external device before you begin. This includes your emails, Works/Office documents, internet favourites, music, photos and videos files.
Setting the boot priority
In order to boot from a USB memory stick (pen drive) or SD card, your computer must have the correct boot priority. To check this is set correctly, follow the steps below:
  1. Power down your PC for a few seconds, then power it up again and tap the DEL key several times as it loads. This will display a grey screen with blue title bar saying Aptio Setup Utility.
  2. Press the right-arrow key on the keyboard until Boot is highlighted.
  3. Highlight Boot Option #1. Press ENTER.
  4. Select USB HardDisk from the list and press ENTER.
  5. Highlight Boot Option #2. Press ENTER.
  6. Select Hard Disk from the list and press ENTER.
  7. Press the right-arrow key on the keyboard until Save & Exit is highlighted.
  8. Insert the Recovery Backup media and press ENTER.
Note: The System Recovery utility will reinstall all hardware and software supplied with your Advent Netbook. However, you will need to reinstall any additional software and hardware that you may have added. Please refer to the documentation supplied with those products for further help.
Recovering from a USB memory stick (pen drive) / SD card
  1. With your USB memory stick or SD card inserted, reboot your computer. This will load into the recovery program.
  2. Select Reinstall Windows by clicking on the circle to the left.
  3. Click the right arrow.
  4. Put a tick in the box next to Start Full Destructive Recovery.
  5. Click the right arrow to start Recovery.
  6. When Recovery has completed, remove the Recovery Backup media and click the right arrow to restart the system.
  7. Your computer will then return you to the initial Windows out-of-box experience setup screens.

Good luck.

My sons advent 4489 wont boot 0xc000000f an error occured whill attempting to read the boot configaration data


Sounds like your hard drive has is failing. You will need a clean install of your operating system! It may also be that your hard drive has failed completely with knackered sectors. Now would be a good time to buy another hard drive. They are pretty cheap on ebay.
