Hello, This started about a week ago, when I realized my Plextor 24/10/40A wouldn't eject by use of the button, and during boot-up would just sit there with the light flashing constantly. I figured this might have been a problem with the circuit board on the burner or something, so currently I am still awaiting return authorization for replacement. Then immediately following that, a Windows file had gone corrupt and the machine couldn't boot. Well, I took out the non-working Plextor and replaced it with my older 8x4x32x HP burner. Hooked it up, made sure the jumper and cable settings were correct, but during the IDE devices detect, it wouldn't go any further. The machine would just sit there, with the activity LED constantly on. Then I set my Hitachi CD/DVD combo drive to the master, which had always been my slave, and booted Windows setup off of it. That worked fine, and Windows was installed, but inside of Windows, the drive was and still isn't detected. Windows just doesn't see that there is a CD drive there. Then, related or not, all drivers for my 128MB AOpen GeForce3 Ti200 wouldn't work. I tried all the way back to version 21.81 and all WHQL & non-WHQL versions in between then and the current. The system would just freeze on Windows startup. Can anyone diagnose what could be going on here? I'm not sure if this can all be traced back to one problem or if it could be a series of hardware defects. All cables are connected correctly, and jumpers are set the way they should be, I can guarantee that, as I have checked that 20 times over. Thanks in advance.
