Advent ADE-AD2 drver for vista SP1?

Just bought Advent ADE-AD2 - CD drivers don't support my OS. Vista SP1.
OK, the mouse and Keyboard work fine but shouldn't I be able to customize my settings, e.g. cursor speed etc?

    Hi It has been driving me batty. Took it back to PC world and they replaced it as I thought it was faulty. But it ssems to work for some time then just freeze - the mouse that is. The keyboard will work for a time then stop so booting up becomes impossible ubntil I get my wife's Mac keyboard. I was told by PC World this was Vista compatible but it clearly is very flaky. Have searched all over the web and many others have problem but I cannot see any Vista drivers anywhere.

    A partial solution is to try running the autorun on the Setup CD in Vista compability mode set to XP SP2. That didnot work propoerly until I flagged see all users on that menu. That then gives you the Admin priveleges you will need on your Vista machine (UAC) and it sets off and installs in two parts. The first part the keyboard bit goes OK and installs into %program files/Wireless. The second bit which is presumably to do with all those Magic keys and their use ands installs into % program Files/Slim Multimedia Keyboard goes fine untill the last 1% of itsd progress ribbon and then says Open key failed. So still not there.

    Anyone got any better or more up to date locations or ideas?

I ignored the "doesn't support your OS" and rebooted. I then got the information icons (scroll lock, num lock, caps lock) on the taskbar. I'm happy with that.

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

Advent ADE-AD2 Wireless keyboard and mouse


I've actually just bought a new keyboard and mouse (Today!) because I could not get my advent ade-ad2 to work at all on vista, (Previously had it on my xp).
Thought I'd give it one last try as PC world were no help this morning and previous internet searches were no help either.

Soooo. after the usual on/off...push in little button on underside etc.etc...the only thing that I did different was press the "wake" button on the keyboard.

Bloody hell, it worked!

New keyboard going back tomorrow!

Go to my computer icon, right click on it then left click properties then go to device manager then check for additional devices.
