i have an old advent 6418 laptop & would love to buy a new one but funds are low so i cann't. so i've decided to help it along by upping the ram memory from 256 to 512 & upping the h/d from 20gig to 60gig. my problem is i've had the laptop for ages & lost all the booklets & disks that came with it. so i've no idea how to get into the bios (if i need to) to autodetect the h/d & ram change. i don't think it will be too hard to find the drivers on the web but if anyone has a spare cd i'd apreciate a copy. any info on what i need to do would be gratefully apreciated. also i did see somewhere about someone upping the cpu from 1gig to a 1.3 celron but i lost the web page. so any info on this please too. thanks.
