    Hi all,

    I have a problem I can't seem to solve. Every time I try to load a disc (either cdr/ cdrw/ or commercial) into my rom drives (first drive is HP CD-Writer 9100, second drive is Sony DVD-Rom drive DDU1621), my computer attempts to restart. After which time I get that tell-tale blue screen indicating a critical problem had developed and win XP Pro is protecting my system from damage. The interesting thing is that loading a dvd or music cd into the dvd drive or cd rom drive has no adverse effect. Only data cds reboot the computer.

    If the solution is to re-install system critical files, how do I do this without the use of my cd rom drives?

    Any suggestions? I'm nearly out of ideas myself.

    Try going into device manager and uninstalling both drives..then reboot...XP should autodetect and re-install the drives, see if that helps.
