I can not run a cd in safe mode can I ? I belive its psu trouble I brought a cheap one from a computer shop a ezcool 550 wat but it was only £23 do you think it could be psu it seems like as soon as I put extera load on it it causes the computer to close down Thanks for replying Kopite

Never buy a cheap PSU. Always asking for trouble. You have decent kit and should always use a decent PSU - doesn't need to be expensive but a £23 is not liekly to cut the mustard.

Does anything else cause the PC to shut down?

Have you tried the CD drive in a mates PC?

Can you borrow a PSU from someone?

Try taking the PSU back to the store and ask them to check it or swap it.

Hi Dave and confused it shuts down on my dvd drive and my cd drive if I am trying to open a program thats on a rewriteable disc but installs no problem on a manufactures cd ? the shop is in Devon and I am in london just trying to see if anyones agrees it could be psu related befor I buy a new psu the cd rewriter and dvd work fine on another computer Thanks Kopite

Have you tried a program on another Rewritable disk?

Does the PC shut down properly or just literally power off?

  dave_and_confused 12:24 21 Aug 2005

It could just be the disk. I thoghut you meant you had a CD Rewriter and if you used that it would shut down.

Most likely to be the disk rather than the PSU now...

Hi Dave it just powers off and yes I did try another rewritable with the same result Kopite

Use a CD-R disk - they are vastly superior reflectivity wise to RW disks, which can cause problems for drives of both computer and domestic type attempting to read them.

You can burn to the CD-R in multisession mode to avoid wasting disk space until it is full.

Hi stuarti its not burning the disc its reading a disc that is the problem thanks
