Download Drivers for Advent 7240 Laptop Computer

Advent 7240 Laptop ComputerA in-law recently asked me to wipe and re-build their aging Advent 7240 laptop computer. The machine is obsolete, albeit perfectly usable running Windows 98SE, but the Recovery and Drivers CD’s had long since been lost.

Always wearing my “Green” hat, I can never pass up the opportunity to make some old hardware useable again – so I threw on my “I AM ENGINEER” T-Shirt and got stuck in.

It took me a little while to track down the specifications and the drivers to enable the rebuild, so to save time for anyone else who wants to re-build an Advent 7240 Laptop – here are a few notes along with links to download the drivers which I’ve stored for public download on Windows Live Skydrive.
