Unfortunatly Advent are cheap far east import that the Dixons group crap stick their own name on.

It can be repaired if you know how to replace the screen, depending on the screen size. You can pick up 14" TFT units for around £150 its just a matter of fitting it.

The drivers for the sound are on the web its just a matter of finding out who really made your laptop and then downloading the drivers for it.
