hi iv just changed my dvd writer so decided to give old one to my son who only had a cd drive. i installed it in his comp (powers on ok) but when he tried to load windows xp he got a beep and then windows stopped loading. i think it must be a wrong setting in bios but iv no idea what to change. any ideas?

i fixed problem by setting bios to standard - dont know quite what difference it made but seems to work ok now.
