All-in-one PCs are particularly suited to those who want to save space and minimise the hassle of trailing cables from a base unit to a monitor. The AIO-101 doesn't fare particularly well in this regard, as it has a comparatively large footprint compared to its rivals. Its rectangular base resembles a fat, 12-inch laptop with its lid closed.
Flattery is quite evident in its sincerest form, if we're to believe the old maxim, with one glance at Advent's latest all-in-one desktop PC. But where the Apple iMac has long been a statement in good-guys white or silver finishes, the Advent AIO200 PC takes ls"bad guys' black as its coat of choice.
I have an Advent T200 which has died. when the pc is turned on the power led comes on brefly, hard disk and dvd drive initialise, blank screen and no cooling fans.My brother has the T100 version of this PC so I tryed the power suppy on his, worked fine so that ruled out a power supply fault. I opened the case and checked all the plug connections, as the fans dont operate the processor heats up but didn't let it run too long just in case processor got damaged.Previously gave the machine to the TechGuys who informed me that sourcing part for repair may be difficult and may not be cost effective, so I am left holding the baby. As the machine is just under 4 years old and cost around
sounds like the motherboard has goneCut your losses - its an old machine, badly designed, and you've no chance of getting any spares for it. Advent didn't make it - it probably was made by TriGen, who in turn may well have bought in the motherboard from elsewhereMore details about the machine he what you have is a machine which uses non-standard parts, which makes it impossible to fix. In this case, the Tech Guys were right in what they told you
