Having problems with your Advent Netbook ?

Year old advent netbook 4211b will not turn on,

\015 My year old advent netbook 4211b was working fine, turned it off, then went to switch it on today and it will not turn on. Power light lit, green light to say hard disk is active not showing apart from brief glimpse, only light I can get to show working it light for wifi. I have removed battery and held power button to discharge static as advised on other web pages but does nothing. Put battery back in and plugged power cable in battery light comes on but nothing else happens, no start up. Help please.\015

Answers :

When you press power button press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you can see bios screen then you not need to refix RAM memory or reset bios.
IF you can see bios screen then lake sure harddisk is detected and SATA is disable then save settings and exit.
Also when you power up press F8 key if you able to see safe mode and other menu then you have change screen resolution enter in enable vga mode.
Then open control panel and display then change scree resolution to 1024*768.
Then apply and ok.
But if you can't see bios screen or nothing in dispaly then you have to refix RAM memory .
Check in back side there is 1 plate open it then refix RAM memory.
If still not get display then open back cover of laptop then find motherbord on it then pull cmos cell for 10 minutes so all settings go to defaults then again refix cmos cell then check.

Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

I was using my one-year-old acer aspire one netbook. i just left it (plugged and all) for less than 5 mins and when i got back, the screen has already turned dead. thinking that it must've went into standby mode, i pressed the power button. instead of turning on, i heard a short 'click' and my acer went dead again. this has happened to me 3x before, and the last time this happened to me, i used the bios thing solution. i tried doing it again but it doesn't seem to work anymore. what should i do?

Hi, my TW-191 suddenly quit working yesterday. . . it is only 2 years old? When the PC is first turned on the amber light turns green and the screen is displayed then after a few seconds goes blank. Through various trial and error checks I've discovered the when I disconnect the VGA cable and reconnect it the screen will reappear again for a few seconds before going black???
