Having problems with your Advent Netbook ?

Majority of screen black

\015 Not sure what I've done, my son somehow managed to turn the display 180 degrees, I was trying to fix this and have somehow managed to end up with the majority of the screen being black as soon as I try to go into anything, only the task bar at the bottom appears and the screen only shows a few centimetres of display just above the task bar. The full screen displays when I switch it on and when I turn it off, its only when I try to go into anything most of it disappears. Although I try to access display settings and the task bar shows I'm in it, I cannot see it.\015\012\015\012Can anyone help\015

Answers :

Reboot the laptop into safe mode, this wills et the resolution to a stable point. Now before that I want you to tap F2 while the advent splash screen comes up, this will get inot the setup pages. Go to the last page or where it says "set system defaults" click on this and then hit the F10 button to save and exit setup. Now when it reboots, hit F8 to get into safe mode with networking. When the mode sets up and settles, go to the display settings. When you right click on the display, look for a an Nvidia control panel. If there is not a listing for an Nvidia control panel then follow the rest of this.On the top tab, click on Settings, then highlight the number one display and click on advanced, now click on the name of the display device, might be a tab labeled something like GeForce 8800 GT, something like that. On that page there should be something like a control panel to click on.

\015\012If the contro panel for display is up on the screen, then you need to do this...
\015\012If the display is still upside down or sideways, look in the left pane and there is a heading for rotate the display. This is where you straighten out the display. This should carry over to the other users but may not. If you look in the right pane as you are changing settings, there is a title in the upper right hand corner that states "Restore Defaults", click on this and it may apply to all users. Hopefully, when you were in the BIOS and reset all to default, it reset the screen resolution and orientation.
