I have a Packardbell pc with an AMD K6 333.  While online and running several programs i put a cd into my Qdrive.  The name of the cd oddly enough was "System of a Down"  It started automaticly installing a music video.  Then it froze the mouse, and the keyboard froze.  NOW EVERYTIME I TRY TO OPEN WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER OR THE CD PLAYER THE SYSTEM WILL FREEZE.  I have tried to reboot from the master recovery cd this doesn't help the problem still occurred.  I have fixed the media player by downloading a new one.  This solved that but i still have a problem with the cd player. CAN YOU HELP ME?

I would simply re-install windows again,(it will retain all your settings if you choose RE-INSTALL) and that would definantly fix your problem.

Also it may be a good idea :
Download the Startup COP a free pcmag utility from
                       http://www.zdnet.com/pcmag/pctech/content/18/08/ut1808.001.html

 Run it and it will show you everything that is listed in all the possible startup
places, and allow you to disable things one at a time until the problem is eliminated.
This is very good for cleaning up odd problems.

Last step would be to reinstall windows. I would try reinstalling CD. Remove it from the Device list, and Windows should re-install it automatically at the next reboot.

I hope this helps !

You could also just re-install the CD Player.
Go to Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs.
Then select the Windows Setup tab and select only the Multimedia box.  You can then either re-install all the Multimedia products or individual ones.

Instead of default CD player, install some third party one, which is good. There lots of them, try to search in www.altavista.com, you will find something. Problem will 100% disappear. G-Luck
