Does the computer completely shut down ?

There is a known issue with the power supply in them. Not enough rated wattage for the system.

    that would be a good start. remove the cover and clean it as best you can. I usually remove the power supply cover and blow out the inside as well. don't try this if you are not completely sure of what you are doing

Why does my laptop turn itself off after i enter the settings f2 or f12


You cannot do this without installing an operating system first on the hard drive, that has the drivers for the advent laptop you are using.

It switches off because it cannot find the windows operating system.

Try and download a free copy of knoppix (Linux) to run from the CD/DVD drive to see what is on your hard drive.
KNOPPIX Live Linux Filesystem On CD

It will give you a windows like environment to use the laptop.

Be sure you have no cd's, dvd's, thumb drives or floppys in the drives.Turn off all peripherals. If the problem persists then "disk error" says it all. A new hard drive may be in order. Especially if the machine is a couple years old.

Has anybody hear of an ADVENT T200 all in one computer? It has just died and can't get any answers anyw


This is the only question/problem in most of the forums I came across while searching the net, which seems that this problem is common. Just quoting a frustrated user -------------"I have a T200 D/top Pc which I bought three years ago from PC World. The problem with the machine is that when turned on I can hear the DVD and harddisk trying to start when turned on. The machine does not show the blue power led on the front of the machine and the cooling fans do not run.

I tried the power supply on my brother's machine (T100) and all OK, my power supply also ran his machine with no problems, must be a problem with my PC.

I notice that a couple of people on the form have had the same problem with their T100's but did not get any reply's. Does that mean that nobody has an answer. I am very disappointed as this PC was very expensive at the time when I bought it but does not look like anybody has a solution to the problem. So mutch for PCworld."------ unquote

But off course there exist a SOLUTION !

CHANGE THE SMPS(POWER SUPPLY INSIDE THE CPU) WITH ONE OF THE SAME RATING(i.e.) WATTAGE AND A BRAKE-UP OF THE 3+3 VOLTAGES, VIZ. 12, 5 & 3.3 Volts.
I am sure such power supplies are still available but very costly!..sodeep

My hard drive just stopped working all of a sudden


Search around on this site for MyBook 500GB problems. I've responded to a couple, but it amazes me that lots of people, including myself, has a failed unit. Mine lasted 1.5 yrs and failure is caused by burned chip pins on the drive controller. Seems likely to be a heat issue. More info about what I did; see my other posts.
