Advent t9307 power switch not working


Your laptop's power button sits directly on top of a device called a power button board. This is a small circuit board where all power and control buttons interface with your laptop's motherboard. The repetitive use of the power and control buttons can damage the power button board. Repairing your power button means removing and replacing the power button board, which requires partial disassembly of your laptop.

1.Power down your laptop. Unplug the AC power adapter and all external devices from the computer. Close the laptop's LCD panel and place the laptop face down. Rotate the laptop so the front opening edge is facing you. Remove the battery pack from its compartment on the laptop's bottom side.

2.Flip the laptop over, and pull open the display panel as far as possible. Use a thin, flat-head screwdriver to pry the keyboard cover from the laptop. The keyboard cover is the plastic piece situated above the keyboard assembly that houses the power button board.

3.Lift the keyboard cover out of the laptop slightly, and disconnect the cables extending from the power button board to the motherboard. Remove the keyboard cover from the laptop.

4.Place the keyboard cover face down on a flat surface. Remove the Phillips-head screws fastening the power button board to the cover, and remove it. If your speakers are situated inside the keyboard cover, disconnect the speaker cables from the power button board before removing it.

5.Place the new power button board inside the keyboard cover. Align the screw holes on the button board with the holes on the keyboard cover. Replace the Phillips-head screws fastening the button board to the keyboard cover. Reconnect the speaker cables to the button board, if necessary.

6.Reconnect the power button board's main cable to the motherboard. Place the keyboard cover back inside the slot above the keyboard assembly. Press down on the cover until it snaps into place. Replace the battery pack and reconnect all cables.

My flatron L1710S flat screen will not come out of power saving mode. When I turn on the monitor the power button/light is green for a few seconds, the screen indicated "power saving mode", then...


I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.

Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.

PLEASE PLEASE CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ANYTHING give me

4 beeps but won't come on


4 beeps of equal lenght suggest that system timer is not working, you need to change cmos battery on your laptop. If you are game, that is how you change CMOS battery on your laptop:

1. Switch off computer, remove power cord and battery, turn computer "proper" side up, open and press power button to discharge
2. Open display in full (180 degree), there is small indent on hinge cover, close to hinge on right and left side, slide in little flat (screwdriver will do) and lift right side up, slide cover towards left and remove it, do not lift on both sides simultaneously!
3. Remove two small screws on the top of keyboard, lift keyboard slightly up and towards you, be aware that keys and tabs on keyboard are fragile and difficult to replace! Lift keyboard connector and slide the cable out. it is not really necessary to remove keyboard, but it easy to replace without keyboard being in the way.
4. Find coin battery, disconnect cable from socket by pulling it gently towards the battery. Remove cable from guides and battery from it's seat
5. Replace battery with exact same type, put it back into it's seat, guide wire through and connect it back to the board.
6. Re-connect keyboard cable, place front keyboard tabs into palm rest and screw back two back holding screws
7. slide in left side of hinge cover into place, press from left to right till it click in place.
8. Re-install battery and power cord, switch on computer, re-programe BIOS ito previous state.

This should solve your CMOS batery problem. Of course you can send your laptop to the technician but that will be no fun at all... ;-)

Where is the sleep button on the VGC-RB52? Is it different from the power button?


It is the same as the power button if your computer is set to sleep when you push power. I was looking too because when you go into the power options in the control panel it shows a button with a half moon as the sleep button, but I don't have that on my keyboard. So I put the question in Vaio help and it said use the power button. I guess some Vaio keyboards have a half moon button, but mine doesn't. I did notice that when I thought I had turned it off using the power button when it got hung up that it did come back up with the move of the mouse. So it really is the power button, as long as it's set that way in the control panel.

My "left" directional button won't work and seems infunctional everythin else works but that button. please help.


I would say that there is probably some crumbs or some other "foreign" material that is interfeering with it if you look under the button you might find something or you could try disabling it and re-enabling it sometimes helps...

Change of CMOS battery in IBM Thinkpad 1400 2621


This battery is hidden under the keyboard slightly up and to the right of center of the keyboard. To get it out is a pain.

Start with the computer sitting flat, lid closed, lid latchs facing you.. just like you were getting ready to open and use it.

Spin it around, rear ports facing you. Right above the external video port, on the right hand side, there are two screws, at a diagonal UP from the port itself, very close to the bottom edge of the LCD. Remove them. There is a small notch between the screws, using a small flat-blade screwdriver, pry up in the notch and pop the platic backing free from the rear of the laptop. DO NOT open it more than a small crack, you are just popping loose a small plastic tab. Open it too wide and you will lock it closed again or break the plastics when you open the LCD lid.

Spin the machine around again, and open the LCD carefully as far back as it will go normally. Find the Power Button. The Power button is to the far right of a plastic 'strip, with 4 other buttons on the far left. There is a small clear plastic strip overlying this button 'tray'. Find the small notch in the bottom edge of the clear plastic strip, use the flat-bladed screwdriver, and gently pry up, popping the plastic strip out of the tab holes in the tray. Under this plastic strip is a black adhesive 'strip' that has a house, magnifying glass, etc. markings on it, and 'i Series' or somesuch printed on it.

Using a razor blade, peel up the black adhesive strip on the left and right ends of the button 'tray'. You will find two small silver screws. Remove these. Then using your screwdriver, or as I did, a dental pick, *gently* pry up the entire tray from the BACK edge of the tray, and by lifting up the left side of the plastic tray. You will have to work it out from under the edge of the LCD bottom on the left side. DON'T yank on it, there is a small cable attached to the bottom of it. You will be able to rotate it toward you and roll it over, exposing the small latch holding the cable in place. Its a small, press-fit latch like what holds a keyboard cable in place. You'll need to work it open by lifting the left and right edges till the latch becomes loose. Pull the cable straight out of the slot, remove the entire plastic 'tray', and set it aside.

On the far upper right of the keyboard there is a small metal tab holding the right upper edge of the keyboard. Reach around to the back of the computer, right-hand side rear, find the little square thumb-notch, and pull it out. The latch on the upper right edge of the keyboard should retract. Now, while lightly pressing down on the keyboard, push the keyboard away from you. It should slide backwards and the front tabs on the front keyboard edge will pop out of the slots. Lift up the touchpad area, popping up the bottom edge of the keyboard, clear of the plastics, then pull the keyboard slightly toward you. It should pop loose all the way around. DO NOT yank on it, there are 3 small cables attached underneath. You wil need to lift the keyboard up enough to reach the cables and pop the lockdown tabs loose, then pull the cables straight out of the slots they are in. The cable slots are attached to the motherboard, the cables are attached to the keyboard.

Removing the keyboard will expose a flat silver panel underneath. There are 5 screws holding down the panel, 4 in a 'box' configuration on the left, and a single one on the right, and several slide-tabs around the edges. Remove all 5 screws, then slide the whole tray to the right, while lifting up. The entire tray will pop up, with the video card heatsink attached on the left-underside of the tray. Set this aside. Directly in the middle of the big hole you now have is the battery. Its smaller than a standard desktop motherboard battery, looks like a small silver button. Gently pry up on the bottom-left edge of the battery, very carefully or you will break the plastic clips holding it in place, and pop it out.

All done. Reverese order to put it all back together.
