    Check the cables and the connections.Clean them. Clean the lens too. Restart in safe mode and see if it happens again.

    I think the problem is in Drivers. Reinstall and update drivers of CD Drive.

    Wth ..?? There is no such thing as CD / DVD drive driver .. Drivers are needed only in Win98 or 95..

    @Aakaash: Did you try disabling CD Autorun feature from the drive..?

    Well I don't think disabling Autorun would do something........
    As in inserting any type of CD or DVD my comp restarts
    As far as your question is concerned I haven't tried that yet.....

    @it_waazn't me..

    No such thing like Drivers!!! What are you telling? All hardware devices require drivers for interacting with OS. There is no exception for CD/DVD writers. May it be Windows 98 or XP, device driver is a must. Check out the pic....

    What I meant was you dont have to install seperate device drivers for CD Rom/ Dvd Rom / Floppy / Hard Disk . Try finding device driver for CD Roms / DVD Roms .. And tell me what you get ..

    @ Aakash : You mean you've disable Autorun and the problem still persists .. Hmmm .. Could you post a HijackThis logfile of your system ...?
