Computer stops operating after inserting cd
Posted on 2004-09-13
The computer I built uses a Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro Motherboard with a 865PE Intel Chipset. A sony DVD player as slave on ide controller 1 with a Liteon CDRW as Master on IDE controller 2. When you use the cdrw on IDE controller 2 the next time you boot the system it will stop working when you insert a cd or dvd in either drive. Once you reboot with the cd in you can get it to work. Some times it will take two reboot.
The system has a pent 4 , 3.0 , with 1 meg cache at 800 mhz.
9800 pro ati card
on board sound card which has been turned off in the Bios.
instead a sound blaster 5.1 is being used.
It also has 1 gig of 400 mhz (patriot) ddr memory.
XP Home edition.
I have reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled software with only the drivers and disconnected the usb on usb port 2. but it still hangs up after you use cd burner. it hangs up regardless which player use.
Any suggestions. I have replaced the dvd player thinking it was the auto dect that was the problem. sound is transferred through the pci slots.
