ok lately ive been noticing things with my computer not working to the best of its abilities and other annoyances. for one it takes forever to shut down. i don't know if this is normal but it sure seems too long. also my cd rom drives have been doing annoying things. sometimes when i take a disc out, usually one associated with music, ill get the blue screen of death and an automatic restart. this happens when ripping, playing, or really anything, but usually only with music cd's. also my dvd drive doesn't seem to want to recognize regular cd-rom's anymore so i have to use my cd rw for that. and when either of the drives to read the cd's it seems to take an unusually long time to recognize and load a disc. so if anyone has any tips for anything ive talked about it would be great if you could let me know. thanks.
