Hi. I've recently (for about 2 weeks) been experiencing lock ups for about a minute each, and sometimes my DVD-RAM isn't detected in the BIOS, or when it is it's detected as a FEC_ND-4550A when actually it's a NEC ND-4550A
which is a bit strange.
When I get lockups, I get error messages in my Event Log which say:
Source: cdrom. Error: The driver detected a controller error on DeviceCdRom0.
I've treid everything, new drivers, unistalling NEC DVD-RAM drive from Device Manager, and i've repaired Windows XP as well, which I think has made the problem slightly better. I e-mailed nVidia and they said that there were no reported problems using an Acer A8N-E motherboard, and as mines just the Fujitsu-Siemens: Acer A8NE-FM motherboard it shouldn't be any different should it? I'm at a loss at what to do now, so I think i'm going to send it in for repair as it's still in warranty. But I don't know if it's a hardware or software problem, as sometimes it's detected in BIOS, sometimes it's not, but it's mostly detected as a FEC which is very strange.
Hope you can help.
