There should be a label or other marking with the make and model number.

So its actually an off the shelf pre-built system by a company called advent and not just a case, when you say cheap, how cheap exactly ?

Was the OS pre-installed, if it was then yes its relatively cheap what else did you get with the deal monitor etc etc ?

As for the side panel, your out of luck as its old tech so your only choice will be to make one which is easier than it sounds.

that shop is like a money traders ...
February 24, 2012 8:02:16 AM

i got just the tower nothing else
and it was some os in it.. but i put different now windows 7 ultimate... and still not running how i expected... lots of questions i have.... too many .. but i started with the easier one .. :p  how can i make one ?
February 24, 2012 8:04:32 AM

i have some people around me .. which they know about computers but they charge me quite a lot for some things like general grafic card instalations or things like that.. and i preffer to read myself or ask than pay to these people :(

To make another side panel you can use the side you do have as a template as the sides are normally reversible, then you can make the extra out of a sheet of aluminium as its easier to work with.

Oh and £90 just for the tower is to much money you should of only paid around the £50 mark.
February 24, 2012 8:52:19 AM

Hey, if you're happy with the tower, don't let the price you paid for it bother you.

By 'the tower' do you mean the tower and all the bits inside, cpu, ram etc. or just the box.

Advent is/was currys own brand PC I think, in which case its possible that partmaster might be able to supply, or look for someone on ebay selling the same case only, because they'll have upgraded to another case.

Or pick up a cheap case from ebay and transfer the hardware into it, probably your easiest option
February 24, 2012 6:00:55 PM

i dont really wanna change it ... i like my case... and yes it was a intel dual core 1.8 ghz precessor and 4 gb ram 250 hard drive... for 90 £ . i was happy with the price.. and i want now to take care of it .. i mean .. put a side pannel put a grafic card... and instal proper drivers.. because i think that is why is not working how it should be because i just instal windows 7 . and not the right drivers for every part..
i am not that good with all these details.. and i was getting ready for all the other question one by one after this firs one with the case...
:(  i think my sata hard drive is faulty ... and the cable ide which conects the other hard and the dvd is very old .. this is what a friend told me ..
now i dont know... all this .. :(
