The Advent support site is rubbish. All drivers/utils they list are\015\012easily available else where. The ones that can't be found elsewhere\015\012aren't given. Useful. However...

For OLDER\015\012Advent Laptops/Notebooks and most Advent PCs are made by 'Medion' a\015\012German firm. Their website supplies ALL drivers, utils etc for your\015\012laptop by the Medion (MD) model number. This you will find on the back\015\012of your laptop and will usually begin with a MD- reference (ignore the\015\012Advent model number ****).

Stick this model number, or your serial number if you're using a PC, in here: http://www1.medion.de/downloads/?lang=uk and it will list all the applicable drivers for your notebook.

For NEWER\015\012Advent Laptops/Notebooks a Tawainese company called ECS manufacturer\015\012the Notebooks. You will find the 'ECS' number on the back of your\015\012laptop, similar to ECS-G610 for example (thats the model number for the\015\012Advent 7091). This can then be used to search for relevent\015\012drivers/BIOS' etc here:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWeb/Downloads/Category_Download.aspx?Categoryid=3&MenuID=37&LanID=9

For MUCH OLDER\015\012Advent Laptops/Notebooks a company named as Gericom manufactured the\015\012notebooks (also known as Gericon in Germany it seems) and also sold\015\012under the name's of 'Mecer', 'Acer' and 'Uniwill', among others. These\015\012have model numbers similar to N340S8 etc.

Tracking drivers for these is pretty hard, but these guys seem to still have them on an old section of their site:

http://ftp.mustek.co.za/drivers/list.php?dir=Repository%2F
and by product name (which wasn't used by Advent)
http://www.acomp.hu/pub/gericom/Notebook/
also from the actual source (Gericom) but by product name again

I am using a Dell Lattitude D830. I added another monitor (Dell) for home use. First time I hooked it up, it worked fine. Today, I took the laptop with me, so unplugged the monitor.

My wireless mouse won't work either now. I need the monitor badly, as my DH cann ot see the small screen on the laptop.
