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)

[ 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.

Advent rebooting on its own


Check your bios to see if there is a hard drive option for compatability mode, you should change this value perhaps. What are your options in your bios?

Screen on laptop advent 7102 very dull can hard use it hardly any brightness


The LCD screen for the Advent 7102 does not produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

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

An Inverter (Screen Inverter) converts electricity from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is the Inverter.


The Inverter is a small circuit board located behind the Display Bezel, and under the LCD screen.

[ The Display Bezel is the thin plastic frame in front of the LCD screen. Resembles a picture frame ]

Broken lap top screen on a advent net book ,,,,,,,,,,,, how much would it cost and should i repair it ?


Some "small" computer-stores sell computer-parts on "consignment". So, go to one of those stores -- they may have an LCD screen available that matches your screen.
Expect to pay $100 for such a "previously-owned" screen,
versus paying $200 to $250 for a "new" screen.
Add $75 for "one-hour-labour" for disassembling your laptop, replacing the screen, reassembling, and testing.

Two pcs running vista home edition wired to router ok. laptop wireless ok. advent pc running windows xp wireless cannot see belkin router but can see outher router in my area. router is a belkin N wireless...


Check the router settings, if the router is set to only use 802.11N wireless it won't pick up a computer that is using 802.11G or 802.11B wireless.

Good luck
