1. Check that the adapter is properly plugged and in working condition.
2. If adapter is faulty get it replaced or repaired and if its working fine then something is wrong with laptop.
3. take it to service center or repair shop to get it checked.

F8 is a bit tricky. Press F8 just before it tries to boot.

The Boot Manager file may be corrupted or as it says missing. You must reinstall the operating system. Use the hidden recovery partition if it (still) exists or the recovery media that shipped with the computer. If no recovery media came with the computer, you must contact the Vendor and order them. You will in all likelihood have to pay for them.

I want to restore my Advent 7211 back to factory settings but have lost the recovery disk.When I switch it on it goes to start up but then switches off. I think the HDD has been corrupted, any help...

You can get another Recovery CD from the laptop manufacturer, otherwise you need a Windows installation CD that matches the Windows version of the Windows label that is attached to the bottom of your laptop. This label also has the product installation code for installing Windows on your laptop.

No recovery disks F8 gives 1 option full destructable recovery,and that dont work.

Maybe to use the recovery you need to press F12 or F10. Reguraly when you press F8 is use to: reboot, return to OS choises menu, safe mode, etc... but never to recovery option. Check the PC/Laptop owner manual. In some cases you need to press Ctrl+F12/F10 or Alt+F12/10.

There are two ways to start the recovery -Restart your computer. Then Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.
second one is
In Windows by clicking: Start / All Programs / System Recovery / System Recovery.

I have a advent notebook which wont turn on and sais that an error accured whilst trying to load configuration settings?????

You may have to contact Advent to try to get a recovery CD - however, there are a few things to try.

1) Try booting the system into SafeMode. To do this, as soon as you turn the system on, tap the F8 key und you will get to the Startup Option screen. Use the arrow keys to highlight SafeMode and press 'Enter'. This will either work or it won't and it may freeze with the error. IMPORTANT: Write down the error - we may be able to find a workaround with that information.

2) If you cannot get to SafeMode, reboot the system and follow the same process to get to the Stoartup Option screen. This time select SafeMode with msdos prompt. If you can get there, we can possibly run a System Restore in DOS and turn your system back to before you had the issue.

Let me know how you make out and we'll move on to the next step.

Good luck,

If you are looking to wipe out everything, you can simply reinstall an operating system on it and choose to repartition and format the drive during the installation process.
