Having problems with your Advent Netbook ?

Screen is funny on start up. lots of lines etc


Answers :

Lines are caused by quite a few issues. The first, easiest is to check the RAM memory stick to make sure it is seated and clean. Pull the stick, clean the contact pins with alchohol and take compressed air from an office cleaning product and use short bursts of air to clean the laptop, blow the air in the vents, grills, keyboard etc. If you have the manual, take the top of the unit apart to access the cable that attaches the monitor to the motherboard, there are a lot of times that the wires that feed through next to the hinges can be rubbed and bared by the constant movement, also the cable can be loosened in the socket by a bump or drop. The last thing on the list is going to be the video inverter and screen itself. Start simple and work your way toward in depth.

For that when you power up press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to control panel ->dispaly ->settings
Change screen resolution to 1024*768Thena pply and ok.
If still same then enter in safe mode.
Then uninstall graphic driver fom device manager or add remove program.
Then start in normal mode then install graphic driver.
Then if still you get line then it is your screen hardware issue.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
