How do you have your hard drive(s) and cd roms connected

ihave 1 40gb hard drive on ide1 and 2 cdrom drives on ide2

Mismatch. You need to have one cd-rom as slave to your hard drive, and the other by itself on the 2nd cable. What you have at the moment is 2 cd-rom drives checking for a disk (which is not there) and using up all your system resources, therefore freezing your system and causing it to shutdown....T

thats a strange statement "You need to have one cd-rom as slave to your hard drive"


Do you have BELIOS jumpers on the MOBO?

I have built my own systems for 10 years and have always had the cd-rom drive as slave to the HDD, wether I have one or two HDD. The only time I have ever had two cd-rom drives on the same cable was when I got a pc shop to do my upgrade, cos I was on hols) and it knackered my system up too....T

I noticed you have ticked off as resolved, but how did you resolve your problem, in case some one else has it in the future....T
