cd-rom shuts down computer

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Stephen Weatherholtz, Jan 12, 2004.

  1. I'm working on a friends computer and can't figure out why every time a cd
    (any format) is put in the cd-rom it reboots. You hear the cd start to spin,
    then it reboots and will do so until you take the cd out. No error messages,
    no blue screen from hell, just shuts down. Have tried two other cd-roms
    which I know work. He tells me it worked fine for two years.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Check to see if the CD ROM drive and the HDD are connected to the same IDE
    controller on the same cable. If so, you might want to separate them so
    that the CD drive is alone as single and no longer on that same cable.
