This has happened before, but was easily fixed. When I turn my computer on everything boots nicely (after a full nights rest) After Windows XP fully boots, it locks up tight (no mouse movements or anything) for about 10-20 seconds and then when I open My Computer, my CD-Rom drives are gone with the wind. I fixed this before by opening up my computer and taking out all the IDE's for the CD-Roms, and the power cords, and starting windows, and removing the drivers for the IDE's, shutting it down, and letting it cool before I put the cords back in. Then they worked, but now when I do it, they shut down before I can even open windows. I'm not sure what the dillio is here. It's different, and I'm hoping someone out there has the capability to help me out. Worst comes to worst, I'll just make a new computer, and I'll make this one go BOOM! :twisted:

When you say "they shut down", to you mean that the system just powers down by itself shorlty after it finishes …
