Shiny Video Review: Advent 4213 Netbook

Computers, Laptops / Notebooks, Video Reviews

Zara got her hands on the Advent 4213 netbook the other day, and she liked it a lot. For me though, it seems to be trying to be a full-size laptop, rather than a diminutive netbook. It’s got a 10.2″ screen, a massive hard drive, 1GB of RAM, and it runs Windows XP – three things which I avoided when buying my Aspire One netbook a couple of months ago.

Still, if you’re not the sort of person who wants the full-on Linux-and-SSD netbook experience, then perhaps it’s for you. Check out the video above to see.

  • i have a advent netbook, ive gone through the vset up but still the cam is not commin on ,,, how do i turn this on plzzzzz

  • All u have to do is to switch off the web cam (function key and f12) and then switch off the computer. When u switch on again the netbook will remember the web camera settings and u can always switch on the device using the function keys.

  • I have the advent 4213 Netbook. I was wondering if anybody knew how to set it so that when you turn the Netbook on the webcam is defaulted to off.

    I know you can turn the webcam on and off once the system is up and running, but usually you can decide which hardware autoruns when you switch your system on.

    I have checked programs that autorun when you turn on the netbook and the webcam is not listed.

    Is this because there is something in the bios instructing the webcam to be on at start up?

    If so, can it easily be turned off?

    Can anyone answer my question?

    • Hmm. I’m not sure what you mean, exactly. But if you don’t want to use the webcam ever, then you could uninstall the driver? I think it’s unlikely that it’d be triggered in the bios.
