@ stefanford1,

Welcome to the Forum.

A Computer Power Supply Unit (PSU) problem can cause your problem. Perhaps reviewing the CD &DVD Burner Forum Read First posting titled “Troubleshooting: Drive messed up? Check your PSU quality first! Good/Bad PSU list…” (http://club.cdfreaks.com/f61/troubleshooting-drive-messed-up-check-your-psu-quality-first-good-bad-psu-list-142753) might be helpful.
