Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi, Big problems powering up my daughters Advent 7201 laptop. Power lights come on. Fan works. Screen dead and I dont think the HDD is powering up. Cant hear anything and after say 5 or 10 mins, if i 'press-and-hold' to shut down it does so immediately.. Any advice you could offer would be gratefully received - especially before she starts college next week.

    Thanks for the respons.. So, I've taken out the drive and cleaned connectors but still not working..

    A few more details may help..?

    1. The power and HD LED's both come on when i press the power button.

    2. The CD ROM drive opens and closes and power indicator lights up ok

    3. The fan comes on

    4. There are none of the usual 'boot-up' noises

    5. The screen doesn't light up in any way

    6. Immediate power off on one quick touch of the power button ie no need to 'press and hold'



    Any further suggestions/guidance would be much appreciated..

    Thanks

    Ross

Hi my advent laptop says its wireless enabled but when i have tried to set it uo with my wireless router it says i have no connection i have been told by my internet provider to get intouch with advent but...


Hi,

You may have turn the wireless radio on first before you can connect to the internet.

Look down the sides of the laptop for a small slide switch and push it, an LED light should come on.

If you can't find a switch then hold down Fn and hit the F2 key.



Regards.

You can try basic troubleshooting. Unplug the laptop, takeout the battery. With the laptop still unplugged, put the battery back in and power-on the laptop. If that doesn't work and you hear no beeping sounds, the motherboard maybe bad and needs replacing.
