Um, just some notes regarding your follow-up Chris.

Some Advents DO come with LAN/Modem combos. And as the Advent 8485DVD is a rebadged Asus L8400C you would have thought it would have one. However, the fact remains that the 8485DVD only has an RJ11 port - there is no RJ45 port for a LAN. Also, the manual only states a 56k modem - no mention of LAN.

You say that the company that builds the Advent uses sis chipsets. For what you don't say. The 8485DVD uses a 8Mb Savage for video, and an ESS audio/modem chipset.

Having said all that, I've sold mine, and got a Toshiba Satellite 2800-500 for a great price from

For the guy originally requesting the drivers - Chris does have a point - try e-mailing PC World or Dixons/Currys wherever you got it from. You could also try the Advent support number 02085 326525 - you will need your serial number if you want to speak to these. They were quite helpful and resolved a battery problem I had. And good luck.
