I had this problem on my last pc, whenever i close the DVD with or without disk it craps out my pc for up to 10 seconds, then all is ok. I know this is somthing to do with IDE drivers, and i have just upgraded to the epox 8k3a+ board, I also installed the XP ATA 133 drivers as i got a maxtor ata133 40 gig strapped in. I run HDD & CDRW with no problems off IDE 1 and my cd rom and DVD from IDE 2. I just swopped the 40 cable for a 80 cable with just the DVD on and still get the same. I dont want to drop back to default IDE drivers and lose my ATA133, any ideas ? XP 1800 (not overclocked) 2 x 256 PC 2100 RAM Epox 8K3A+ I Installed the latest VIA 4 IN 1 Drivers as well.
