I have a small problem I hope someone can help me with. Just recently my wifes computer started freezing at the initial start-up screen. I can hit ctl-alt-del to restart the computer and it will load fine. I did determine that it was the DVD/CD drive that was causing the problem. I installed a CD drive into her computer and the computer loads fine with it. She goes through this process every time she turns her computer on, turn computer on, it freezes on the initial start screen, hit ctl-alt-del to restart computer, then upon restarting the computer loads fine with no problems. She has a game that she likes to play on her computer that is in DVD format so the DVD drive is a must. She has XP and the DVD/CD unit is a Philips. There have been no changes made to her computer since the problem started. I can see the unit going bad and causing this problem but why does the computer load fine upon restart? Any help would be appreciated.
