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!!

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 voilà! Both problem are solved.


Thanks for all your help.:D
