    For almost a year now i have had a problem with my computer... which comes and goes, i originally thought it was the heat problems so i put some extra fans in, but im still getting problems, where the computer always shuts down restarts, and blue screens. But no i think it might have something to do with the CD Drive because the problem occurs more when i run a cd either playing music or installing something... When i load up my computer it says that the CDROM is running of the primary Slave... is this ok or could this be an issue.
    Any help would be great.

    Thanks in advance

    Andy

    I have a burner on my Primary Slave and another on the Secondary Master and they run just fine. That is not the problem What we need to know is what the BSOD is saying. Please to follow the instructions and write down the error messages after and post them.

    In order to figure out why you are getting random reboots, you need to make a settings change to your computer. Go to:

    Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Setup and Recovery 'Settings'

    UN check 'Automatically Restart'. Click OK.

    Reboot your computer. Now when Windows detects a problem it will not automatically reboot, but rather give you a blue screen.

    Blue screens are often called 'Blue Screens of Death' (or BSOD) by users, and 'Stop Messages' by Microsoft. We need to know the exact message you see when you get the blue screen. We especially are looking for a set of letters and numbers about half way down the page that take this format:

    0x0000008e

    This is usually followed by a set of 4 similar numbers in parenthesis. For now we just need the first set of letter and numbers (before the numbers in the parenthesis).

    check your cd/rom is on the right ribbon cable
    Examine the motherboard and look for theIDE controller interface.(folow the ribbon cables from your cd/rom or hard drive)
    Newer motherboards are colour coded in Blue and Black making it easier to find the Primary IDE controller, always used to connect the IDE Cable to the hard drive device and usually CD ROM.
    The Blue Primary IDE interface is always used for the Hard drive.
    The Black secondary IDE interface is usually the ideal place to hookup the CDROM-RW.
