Click here to see full specs[/qanda]Sup, Had this DVD drive for atleast 2 years now, just recently by recent i mean aint used it in a few weeks, my DVD drive shuts my computer down instantly (no logout, no shutdown screen, just a straight power loss).
This happened for the first Noticeable time today, i was burning a cd with some Docs for College and Bam as the tray opened Shutdown…
So I thought through what it couldve been, RAM was my main suspect due to unexpected crashes and blue screens months ago which i resolved by doing a reinstall bcoz NVIDIA didnt make vista compatable GFX drivers or atleast not 100% compatable so i downloaded The microsoft RAM tester burnt it to a disc after telling InfraRecorder not to eject after boot due to abrupt shutdown if it opens after burning.
Turned comp on ran ram test for 4 hours it repeats the tests constantly until told otherwise.
No errors after roughly 140 varying tests both normal and advanced even stress tests.
so i reboot and remove the disc before the computer finds the drive in the first 5 seconds, and it worked disc tray opened and closed fine no shutdowns.
went on to XP - 64Bit Desktop i open the drive and its fine. thought it was fixed…
SHUT THE TRAY … Power down
Any suggestions are Appreciated, im baffled, no clue as to why its doing this but i will add that when i burned the Microsoft Ram Tester cd i heard crackling noises through my Speakers which wasnt happening before the crackling stopped after i finished the burning… Wierd but probably just static.
