Adding RAM is the most cost effective way to boost your computer's performance.
The Advent Computers website lists two lots of drivers for the Roma 2001, one labelled as Advent Roma 2001 and the other Advent Roma 2001 3001.
Replacement recovery discs can be ordered from the Advent Recovery Media site.
The Roma 2001 is basically a rebadged ECS I50IL1 (you should see I50IL1 printed on the underside of the laptop) so you can download the drivers, along with the user manual, from ECS's website.
