LG4163B -> computer boot

vbimport

#1

I installed LG4163B drive as Master in the secondary IDE.
Installation went fine, Xp Home shows the drive.
But when i try to use it, the computer makes a boot
(go down and start again). Xp Home does not give any error
messages.

Motherboard Asrock 939dual-sata2, Athlon 64 3500+,
one sata2 drive (Maxtor 300 GB), Win XP Home.
LG4163B firmware A105. Power 400 W.
What can be wrong?


#2

What causes the reboot…?

Please check the Event-Viewer for more info.


#3

Power supply problem, faulty IDE cable or LG set as master but on slave connection.

Is this the only optical device you have connected? And has it just started?


#4

Could also be the IDE drivers that cause that. You can try uninstalling your IDE drivers. Windows should reboot and then automatically install its own default IDE drivers.
