Link here to the main support site for this laptop.
Specifically drivers here.
I had an advent laptop, model no. 7109b bought to me, which needed windows putting on. There was no recovery disk or image on hard drive. Have installed xp with sp3.
I downloaded the drivers from the emic website, who manufacture the laptop. The vga, card drivers all work fine. The sound drivers, wireless acrd and also the nic do not seem to picking up the drivers. The wireless card is a ralink 2500rt, sound is realtek 8196 ( spec was found off the manufactruers website). Have downloaded drivers off different websites, off the ralink and realtek website. Everytime i try to install them, i go through device manager, it doesnt pick them up. HAve tried loads of different drivers off different websites, but just cant get them to work.
Any ideas of what i might be doing wrong.
These Laptops are sold by the Tech guys at PC World I think? Dare I say it........Pop in and ask for a drivers disk?
Chech to see if they aren't disabled in the BIOS!
Most if not all Advent computers/laptops are purchased from the Dixons Group (PC World, Dixons and Currys).
They have a website here and under Product Guides you can find info on most hardware they sell.
The link to the driver downloads for your laptop is here.
Having a quick look through drivers for sound and nic are there but there is no mention of drives for the wifi sorry!
Thanks for the quick relpies, have downloaded the drivers from their to, but it just doesnt seem to be working. The vga works a treat, but the others, its just not picking up.
