Alright, here's the scoop.
I run my computer 24/7 without a hitch. However, when I stick a cd in to my DVD-RW drive, I can hear the cd starting to spin from the autoboot, and once it sounds like it has reached the "fast" spinning speed (when the pitch isn't changing anymore), my system just shuts down.
Sometimes it shuts down before the CD's even fully sped up.
Now, before you go saying this is a software thing, I booted up my puter in the BIOS, stuck a CD in, and it started spinning and bam, my puter shut down. While I was in the BIOS.
So that eliminates software.
Next I tried figuring out if it was something with the motherboard or something, so I unplugged the IDE cable from my cd drives but left the power cables in. I booted up my PC, stuck a cd in, and bam, it shuts down again.
So now I'm thinking, ok, it has to be something with the power.
However, my PSU is 450 watts...and here's the specs for my computer:
3000+ amd 64
200gb hdd 16mb cache
2 led-lit fans
1 led-bar across the clear side panel
So....what I don't get is how these hardware specs are causing my system to reboot.
Before you say anything about the CD drives also, I tried it out with just my DVD drive plugged in, and it rebooted. I tried it with just the CD drive plugged in, and it rebooted. Every time I stick in a cd, regardless of what's happening, my computer shuts down.
The only thing I can rule out is possibly my PSU is faulty, but I just bought it 6 months ago...how could that be possible? Any suggestions?
