Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
A friend gave me his old PC to play with/overhaul. 500MHz AMD K6-2 with 64MB PC100 memory and a 10GB HDD on a MSI-5191 MoBo. I formatted the drive and did a fresh install of Win98SE, installed all the necessary updates and drivers etc. Now I have exactly the same problem as you! As soon as I insert a CD (audio or data), everything freezes totally - so badly, in fact, that even ctrl-alt-del is useless. Have tried several different CD and DVD drives - no change of behaviour. It's so frustrating, as in every other respect, the machine works fine. Am now considering stripping it out for spare parts!
I am experiencing the same thing with my brand new notebook. I have been looking into the problem think it is probably the Interrupt the CD-ROM uses or the frequency of the noise the CD-ROM puts out when it spins up. Let me know if you have any questions or advise.
I have a Rock Quadra DTS Pro. Its not even 6 moths old and has beein doin the same things since i bought it...
Any one had any luck??
Are any of you running nero burning rom? I've heard the InCD feature in the nero pack can cause such lock ups. I've just uninstalled the InCD feature on nero, so we'll see if that helps my lock up problems. Sorry I can't be of more help.
When I insert a CD, the computer is not recognizing it. The computer prompts me to insert a disk. What do I do in this situation?
hey, you must update your firmware to resolve the problem. If you need more information just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
My problem is a bit different, when I try to load multiple disc games it loads the first 2 then freezes before the game fully loads. I tried a bunch of differant games without success. I about to launch it but the system is only 6 months old. I need help!
i have A kinda the same problem, i sold my old PIII
450 to my mom but before i did i switched the cd-rom
for a cd-burner , now my brother tell me that every audio cd mp3 or standard freezes the computer regaurdless of what sotware he uses, i never use my pc to play audio, so i think i wasn't connecting everything
any way, it might be that little wire.
i find out in the next 24
ps. the pc has a sound card
I had the same problem till this evening, I have an IBM think centre (office pc) and when i went to the ibm site, sure enough, there was a firmware update available that resolved my problem. For the guys who built their own pc's I guess you could check out the manufacturers site.
Best of luck.
