HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im having a a real nightmare time with this piece a junk advent 7111.
i have everything installed apart from the crappy modem driver which was supposed to be on the same bus as the sound card (which was also a nightmare).

Does anyone have a solution tried every driver under the sun and still nothing and those folks on the other post about this machine said the realtek drivers work you were wrong.

P.s does anyone know where i can get a recovery disk from for this coz the link on Techguys website is dead?

The address for recovery disks now seems to be http://www.pcservice.../recoverymedia/ BUT they have really shoved the price up, I think it was £5 or £10 a disk before.
