    Hi,
    I have a P4 1.4ghz with Win Xp, recently I've noticed 2 problems. One is that my computer will not turn off. I tell it to turn off and it just restarts. My other problem is that my CD drive (d:\) isn't reading anything. It is recognized by the Device Manager and i can eject it, but it won't read any CD iput in. Does it just nead cleaning????? I just installed 256mb of memory if that has anything to do with it.


    Thanks!!

    Here's a good place to see about your shutdown problems:

    Regarding the CD drive, have you done anything to it recently? Maybe you knocked the cable loose when putting that new memory in?

    Thanks, I'll try that. Would a loose connection really allow the comp. to still read that the drive is there??? Im just trying not to have to open to the computer up again.

    Thanks

    I got those updates for Adaptec and fiddled around inside the comp and blew into the cd drive and voilĂ ! Both problem are solved.


    Thanks for all your help.:D
