    Win7 Advent Drivers

    Just been given an Advent 9415 laptop and have put W7 on it, now it works just fine (even with only 512Mb as thats all I had to hand at the moment) but its only running on for the graphics for example generic drivers. Anyone know where I can get the w7 drivers from? Its a SIS chipset as far as I can tell, had a google but can only come up with XP links.

    It's a SiS Mirage 3 graphics chip, apparently, and there is a driver on Microsoft's update catalog site. Can't provide a direct link because of the weird way the site works (it demands you run it in IE and installs an ActiveX component... grr!), but search for "mirage 3 windows 7" and you should find a bunch of drivers to try.
