    this is now the second time that i ahve reformatted my computer in the last 5 hours. i founf out that my main HDD has failed and has become a paper weight but now i am in the instalation process and some times my dvdrom (which is primary) when it is running the cd and using the cd it just stops and wont start up agian but it is still on. i dont know what the problem is and i would like to know if anyone does.
