CD/DVD Drive Problem

  JF25 18:48 18 Oct 2007

When I put a disk into the drive most times it crashes and I get an error message 0x0000008e. I does not happen every time but mostly. After shutting down computer and restarting I get a message 'Windows has recovered from a serious error', maybe the last word is not correct.
I have tried replacing the rewriter with another one but get the same message.
Sometimes if I leave the disk in the drive and start up it works ok.
Would a clean reinstall cure the problem?
Any advice would be appreciated.

It's possible that you may have a dodgy memory module.
