often when i have a cdrom sitting idle in my cd drive it cant spin up properly when something trys to use it, it just keeps spinning up and spinning down and locks up my computer when i use win2k or xp with me it kicks out a bsod. Although its mostly when my cdrom is idle sometimes its happened during install of win2k as well

is it becuase my cdrom is dirty???

Hi dopefish, you might try going into the control panel, device manager (hopefully that's what it's called in 2k) and uncheck the auto insert notification for the cdrom settings......might also uncheck the DMA if it is checked....then reboot.
