Re: DRIVER NEEDED: Advent 7107 (Windows XP Professional)
Your laptop came with a special hidden partition on the hard drive that will allow you to put the system back in the same condition as it was when you bought it. Please read the instructions under this section: Using the HDD Recovery System (on this web page):
If the HDD recovery doesn't work then you can recover from the discs you should have created when you first got the laptop. The Recovery Media Creator will remind you to create your recovery media every time you start Windows, unless you tell it to stop reminding you, dismiss it, or create the media.

One thing you might not realize about a laptop is they cannot use generic drivers. You must use specific drivers from the laptop maker or special "hacked for laptops" drivers. Attempting to use a generic driver will result in a failed install (as you have probably already found out).
