Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Advent 5313 laptop which isn't finding any wireless networks anymore. I'm not too sure if this is due to the card dying or a hardware/software problem. Could you please tell me any ways I could have a go at fixing this, or even the type of card I would have to buy to replace it? Thanks

Hi ricky,

Try this, it may help with your issue. Click Start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager. Navigate to network adapters, choose your hardware, right click and choose "uninstall". Reboot, windows will detect new hardware and should reinstall the software and say " hardware installed and ready for use" or something to that affect. If this does not resolve your issue go to Advent website and down load new drivers software, the steps for this procedure are as follows:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newsounddrivers. Un-intall sound card and software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file -. Reboot, and go back to device manager and choose the the your network adapter just as before, this time choose update driver, windows will ask permission to check online updates, choose "No, not this time" and click next, choose " Install from list or specific location, choose this option and direct the wizard to your new sound drivers folder and follow remaining prompts.

    p.s. As for the type of card you need, this information will be in device manager for network adapters, it will be the one you clicked uninstall. It should have the hardware's name there. Then go on line to find the best value and buy it.

Why does my laptop turn itself off after i enter the settings f2 or f12


You cannot do this without installing an operating system first on the hard drive, that has the drivers for the advent laptop you are using.

It switches off because it cannot find the windows operating system.

Try and download a free copy of knoppix (Linux) to run from the CD/DVD drive to see what is on your hard drive.
KNOPPIX Live Linux Filesystem On CD

It will give you a windows like environment to use the laptop.

Iam try to find where I can down load updates for network adaptors for an advent kc550p on vista as I cant get the internet to update the drivers


Advent is a bit weak on support, which I'm sure you know. Wired or Wireless Network Adapter? Try If you, uninstall the network device and reboot, Vista will try to apply a generic driver, will it not?

I Can't Find My Webcam


A lot of the advent range do not come with offline webcam software as standard, and your model is one of them. Try a freeware app. like YAWCAM or pay for one like ArcSoft.

Hope this helps.
