Frozen Advent Screen After Windows 7 Crash

Jan 22, 2013

I have an Advent T9102 and Advent T9308, due to the Advent T9102 being really old and having a few problems and consistently crashing, I decided to take the Hard Drive out of it and make use of it in my Advent T9308 and reformat the whole machine and install Windows 7. Due to my Advent T9308 being Windows XP I first upgraded it to Windows Vista to get all the necessary Windows 7 drivers. Everything worked great once upgraded to Windows Vista. I then used my USB stick to install Windows 7.

When I restarted the Advent T9308 I booted the USB stick and it started loading the Windows files, I deleted all the partitions on the hard drives and reformatted the drives. The installation screen came up and I followed the screen prompts. When it got to the installing Windows part it shot the percentage straight up for the "Copying Windows files" which was odd, but then the "Expanding Windows files" it froze at 1%, I knew it froze because I left it for 30mins and it didn't go up a percentage. I decided to hold the power button for 5 seconds and restart the machine.

On restart the machine got stuck on the very first Advent screen, it currently has "Press DEL to run Setup, Press TAB to display BIOS POST Message", but it doesn't matter what button I press on the keyboard nothing loads up? Obviously no Windows will load up as I deleted the Windows partitions. I am just trying to get the machine to boot up the USB, or, CD so I can install Windows 7, but the machine wont get past the first screen, just before the post bios screen. The machine fans are spinning, the motherboard light is on, no beeps at start up, if you just listened to it it sounds like everything is ok, but its not getting past the Advent first screen?

Increasing Updates When Switch On Laptop?

Feb 22, 2012

My laptop has increasing updates when I switch it on. It started at update 1 of 1 and is now at update 1 of 66. Which means it can take forever to start. I don't understand why this is increasing all the time? And I can't find any similar queries on any support sites? Is it possible this is a virus? I have AVG free anti-virus software and the computer scan is coming out clear. Even in Safe mode.

Switch User Accounts The Computer Will Start The Switch And Then Lock Up With A Display Message?

Aug 10, 2011

Whenever I switch user accounts the computer will start the switch and then lock up with a display message that says no signal on the monitor. It happens if the computer has been running for hours or only a couple of minutes. I have to shut the PC off and leave it off for 20-30 minutes. I can then restart and enter any user account. But if I try to switch user or logoff and pick a different user the whole cycle begins anew.

Whenever Boot Up Computer It Shows Advent Logo-screen / Where Can Access Boot Menu

May 7, 2012

I am running an Advent desktop PC and its stats are as follows; Intel Core i5-2310 CPU @ 2.90GHz 8GB RAM Win 7 64 bit.The problem I am having is when ever i boot up the computer it shows the Advent logo-screen where I can access the boot menu etc but then it goes to a black screen with a cursor/underscore flashing in the top left... This screen stays for quite a while and I am not sure if it stops because of a key I have pressed or just because it has run its course but after it disappears the computer goes back to the logo-screen for a moment and proceeds to boot up as normal except slightly slower than usual.It is a relatively new computer and it has no problems running at all once the boot up is complete it is fast and as friendly as ever.

Switch From 32 To 64

Dec 10, 2009

I am aware of the cavets for hardware and software when switching from 32 to 64 bit, but the question is this. I just bought the 3 unit upgrade which contains both the 32 and the 64 bit discs. I have an AMD dual core that will process the 64 bit. I installed the 32 bit version. Now I wonder, can I go back and install the 64 bit and if I do will I lose the extra install or will I still have 2 left on the 64 and the 32?

Windows 7 Switch From 32 Bit To 64 Bit?

May 8, 2012

I have a computer that I bought refurbished and they loaded the 32 bit version of Windows Home Premium. I need to run the current version of Photoshop and it only runs on 64 bit.Need to do a clean install and I have no problem with that since their are very few programs on the computer.My problem is I have a disk from the Reseller that says "Windows 7 Home Premium". Will that also carry the 64 bit version of the software?Also the disk says "Licensed for use with the "Registered Refurbisher". I did license the software when I got the computer.I ran the Windows 7 upgrade utility and it told me the 64 bit is OK to load.

I want to share folders between my two computers A and B. Would also like to share internet thru ICS. Both the computers have windows 7.

This is the setup - One direct lan connection from router to A, then another lan on A is connected to a switch. B is also connected to a switch.

On A, I have allowed other network users to connect thru this computers connection (for the lan card which is connected to the router).

The other lan connected to the switch remains unidentified, in fact it gets APIPA with IP as

Want To Switch To ACHI

May 31, 2010

I have my dad's computer already setup with Windows 7. For some odd reason being that there is only one drive in the computer. the computer's bios is set to RAID. I know you need at least two drives to perform any RAID functions. When I tried to switch over the SATA drives in the BIOS from RAID to ACHI, windows failed to start. Is there some proceedure first that I need to do before I switch them? Like a driver or does the hard drives have to be switched on a clean install of windows?

Sep 19, 2011

I have a router (Huawei EchoLife 520) with STB port for IPtv. I want to connect this router to my Prime router (Linksys) to act like switch so i can connect it to my Set top box (via STB port) because linksys has not have STB port for IPtv The reason is that linksys sync @ 20Mbit and Huawei as Prime router syncs @ 8mbit!!!! Ive try to do it (diable dhcp,nat firewall), and Huawei act like switch. Ethernet ports 1 to 3 shares internet to other devices but from STB port my Set top box returns DHCP error.

Switch From XP To Windows 7

Oct 27, 2009

Just a home user. Mostly gaming. Home oriented stuff includes Office XP (2002), and Quicken. The other main software I use is Adobe Premier Pro CS3 video software (includes Encore, the DVD writing program), and Visual Studio 2005.

My system, isn't the latest, but newer stuff isn't a lot faster yet:

Intel core 2 extreme X6800 (2.93ghz)
Intel D975XBX motherboard, 2GB 667 mhz 4-4-4-10 ddr2ram.
ATI HD4870 (PCI Express) video card, 512 MB ram
Sound Blaster X-Fi Plantinum
4 Segate 7200.12 500GB sata drives, paired into two striped virtual drives via BIOS.
1 Seagate ??? 250gb IDE drive, used only for boot up.

All drives have multiple partitions.
Windows XP SP3 is installed on a partition on one of the striped sata drives.
Windows XP X64 is installed on a partition on the ide drive.
The second pair of drives are used for swap files, temp files, and backup.
There's also a USB drive I use for backup.

Each instance of OS is used to backup the "other" OS partition, and also I use X64 for for some 64 bit programming with Visual Studio 2005.

Other than one version of Halo, I haven't seen any games that don't run on Windows XP. I read that most games play faster with Windows XP than with Windows Vista, and Tom's recent article seems to state that Windows 7 isn't faster with gaming than Windows Vista.

So bottom line, is there any point in switching to Windows 7 (or replacing my XP X64 with Windows 7)?
