    Working with a customer:
    Finished a complete re-install of XP/SP3.
    Now the DVD and CDROM drives automatically start a re-boot sequence no matter
    what kind of media (music, data, etc) is loaded in the tray. I have gone into the BIOS and
    and removed any other boot parms other than the HDD. This did not correct the issue.
    I was thinking of disconnecting the DVD and CD and go thru a process of rediscovery with Plug and Play.

    Any help appreciated.

    No, I did not. I am not sure if they have the drivers. But I can check.

    When you reinstall Windows yoiu absolutely have to install the motherboard drivers, most importantly the chipset driver and they always have them.
