Battery on my advent 5311 has blown


First of all take out the battery !!!! The battery is failing, it could explode and cause untold damage to the laptop and could possibly catch fire.
Use the laptop on AC power only and DO NOT use the battery at all until you have a replacement battery for the laptop.

Advent 7083 drivers

You can go to the following site for drivers for your Advent 7083{64e249d4-f085-47e0-a64a-5fb0a1c0b111}&CatID={2d964229-bedd-400a-ae44-316a77a38764}

Since the 7083 is basically a rebadged ECS 331 ( you should see 331 printed on the underside
of the laptop ), you can also go to this site as well

I m getting blurred images ,pics on my hp pavilion dv 2000 laptop when surfing internet like orkut profiles etc

Unless you're running at the display's native resolution (check the box or product literature, for your laptop probably 1280x800) you will have some blurring on photographs and other parts of the display. You will need to set your resolution to 1280x800 to see crisp photos.
To change the resolution in Vista: 1. Open Display Settings by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Display Settings.
2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the resolution you want, and then click Apply.
