Guessing related to dvd/cd drive or media software as it only re-starts when cd/dvd being used.

invoice says 480 watts

any ideas what else it might be if its not the media software or dvd/cd drive??? just assumed it woudl be since it happens only when you play 3 cd's in a row type thing...

thanks

It can be a number of things thats causing it t behave the way it does but its reasonable its cd/dvd drw.
get a higher wattege PSU (for testing) and see how it behaves.are you running xp?and how much ram do you have my friend

yes xp and Ram is 0.99GB

weird how it runs 2 perfectly then crashes on the 3rd one every time.....

will take a few days to get a higher wattage PSU...

anything else i can test in the mean time?
