Its speeds are 52x/24x/52x.

Sometimes when the computer boots, it will just "think". Like its trying to run a disk. But it doesn't matter if a disk is actually in the drive or not.

Just this morning, i turned on the computer(i didn't even consider it happening, since it was reformatted a few days ago) and about a second after the desktop appeared, the screen went blank and the disk drive went off. The only way to stop it is to restart it using the power button on the case and keeping the drive open while it boots.

It used to do the same thing before it was reformatted. But it seems random.

the green light should actuall flash when the computer is turned on, this is because, from what i know, the mother-board is establishing connection between it and the disk drive, maybe your cd drive is not working??? is it new?

It works normally after startup. Its not new, but this is the only problem. And it doesn't happen all that often anyway. Certainly one of the more strange issues i've seen. :uhm:

I have the same drive (SONY CRX220E1 ) and I havnt had that issue. Have you tried turning it's boot off in BIOS and just having windows doing it?

Try going into the BIOS and making sure the CD drive isn't set as one of the three things in the boot sequence. If it is, try taking it out or moving it to a lower postition on the priority list.

I'm more experienced with hardware. I've never gone into the BIOS, since i haven't needed to. So this may sound stupid, but your going to have to tell me how to go into the BIOS. :p

It seems that its not fixed. It happened again, and this time, i disabled it all together. But it STILL did it. If anyone has more suggestions, i need them.

I took out the Sony drive and put in an old drive from an upgrade long ago... And it STILL locked up.

I'm out of ideas. But that means it wasn't the drives fault. Something else is wrong.
