    Ok fellows I need some help here not sure WTF is going on I tried to go into PC related forums with no luck so I figure what the heck. When I insert a blank media(cd-r or dvd-r) my pc restarts it self and will not load until I remove the blank disk. It will do this 3/8 times. Other times it like fine. I have a WinXP with service pack 2 Pentium (R) 4 CPU 2.8GHz, 2.78GHz, 1.00 GB of Ram. Any Ideas? thanks

    Got any burning software installed that should recognise empty media (Nero?)? uninstall that and try again.... And i do not have windows XP at the moment, but doesnt Xp do something like this natively? If so, try to find out how to disable that feature.

    Do you have Nero installed by chance? Or Sonic?
    Have you run a anti-virus/spyware removal recently?

    I do have nero Had it forever and it never did this before MY PC is about 4 years old. I run antivirus once a week and defrag the HD every other month. Not sure what it is. I could delete it but I need to run DvDshrink.

    The problem mostly lies with Nero, I had this happen once about a year ago. I would attempt to re-install the burning program. With the defrag, I wouldn't suggest doing it every month it's not exactly a positive thing to do every other month. Defragging is useful every 3-6 months unless your not mass installing and removing of files.

    Purchase a external bay drive, a good 500GB drive can run in as low as $100 from a good brand too.

    Go to Control Panel->System->Advanced->Startup and Recovery Settings-> Uncheck "Automatically restart".

    Now instead of restarting, you will see the actual error message that is causing the restart. Try googling the Stop error that you receive (if you get one)
