I have a Asus P4P800, P4 3.0G, 1G geil ram, pioneer DVR106, Benq CD, 1 x 130G and 1 x 32G 10Krpm sata set up, windows xp pro sr2. Almost everytime I load a DVD or CD into either of the drives the system locks up, if I boot up and their are disks in the DVD or CD drive the system hangs at the welcome screen and will not boot until I remove the disk, does not matter if they are video, data or music. I think it may be the main board as the mouse recently stopped working in the ps2 connection and I have had to use a USB port.
It is not a virus or spyware as I have formatted and reloaded the op system.
Before I spend money on upgrading and changing everything can anyone tell me if they think the Mobo is the issue.
