Advent 7113 will not read cd drive

I've had my laptop for over 3 years now and all of a sudden the cd drive has stopped working. There is a small possiblity that a screw may have gone missing about a year ago because I thought it went a bit loose, however that hasn't affected it at all.

It will not detect it when I look in my computer but when I go to device manager it says that it is working correctly.

Is it a good idea to uninstall it and install it again?

This could be the lense giving up.

Try a few different disc type (eg CD's DVD's CDrom, DVDrom etc) - if any of them work, that should indicate the laser is fine all round.

I'm trying to sort my Advent 7110 laptop at the moment, you haven't a recovery disc have u? LOL! Seriously though have ya?

Hi there.
Error code 04 means that the CD cannot be read properly, take the CD out and make sure its clean, also get a CD/DVD lens cleaner and clean the lens on the CD drive.
Please post back if you need any more help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Advent 7113 doesn't detect mains


It is highly posible that the jack in your laptop where you plug the main dapter is making a false contcat due to a problem in the welding of its connectors to the main board or to corrosion. Check if the rentral plug is not loose or if the plugs seems to be loose when you plug it.
If it is so, you need some expert technician to solve the problem by re weilding it or replacing it.
