    Hi knight1,

    I found this link concerning the UKT Support - Advent 5311 Laptop.
    Within the link it states as follows:
    Your laptop should have been supplied with a Utility CD which contains a copy of the user manual and all the drivers.
    Do you, or your Granddaughter have access to this Utility CD?

    Other members may have some info. for you as well! Stay tuned!
    If you think you might be infected with malware or have recently cleansed your computer of malware without the help of an expert, please read and follow the instructions in How to Start Removing Viruses and Spyware from your Computer.

    I believe Advent are custom built....not sure?

    Meaning they will know the hardware...it varies computer to computer

    Advent Computers, Inc
    1484 West South Park Avenue
    Oshkosh, WI 54901
    Phone: 920.235.1711

    So they say
    Another bonus in purchasing an Advent Computers custom-built computer is knowing if you have any questions regarding the operation of your computer, or a situation occurs that your would like answers for, you can call Advent Computers during regular business hours, and you can talk with a LIVE technician, who has EXPERT and PERSONAL knowledge of your Advent Computers custom-built computer, and also has EXCELLENT command of the English language.
    Edit:
    Hi Donna...sorry stepped on your post
    I like DonnaB's link better too

    Advent computers are all re-badged Medion machines. If you go here... http://www1.medion.de/downloads/?lang=uk then enter the number starting with MD... which you should find on the underside of the case, you'll find all available drivers.
