    I have a computer that has a 3 ghz processor with 1.5 gig memory running XP Pro
    It started having a video problem and rebooting. I replaced the video card and that fixed the video problem. Now when I put cd in the cd drive the computer hangs up and I have to power off and restart. I tried a new cd drive, a new cable and it still does the same thing. I unplugged the cd drive and it comes up fine, but now it hangs up after about 10 minutes and reboots. I looked at the motherboard and it looks okay.
    Any help please.
    Thanks

    Need more info to be sure, but sounds like motherboard. Post specs for your computer and we can go from there.
