Computer has been running fine up until now. I ejected a game disc and inserted a blank cd so i could copy some MP3 files. When I put the disc in after a few seconds the computer crashes. It restarts by itself. If I leave the blank disc in it does not get past the welcome screen. If I remove the disc it boots up ok. If I put a game disc or any other disc in its ok. The discs I have used before and had no problems with them. THey are Traxdata Inkjet Printable. The other strange thing is when I reboot i get the usual Windows error message. If I decide to send it the problem that windows says is graphics related. The error code that comes up is :- STOP 0x000000EA THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER.
How does putting in a blank cd cause this. Please help. can't record any dubs etc.

thanks
Eddie

Another test I done. I dug out a cd I made about a week ago on one of the blank discs and it goes into the drive and starts to play no problem. Tried another blank disc - no data - crash.

Thanks for your input but I've been to the Microsoft web site and done the whole download thing still no joy.
But to add a further twist to the tale - I took one of the cd's that was causing the problems of re-booting and put it into my epson printer an printed an Image onto the printable surface. I then put it into my computer and it worked no problem. Go figure that one ???????????????????????????????????????????

Thanks
Eddie

1) Since Microsoft says that it's a video problem - try updating your video drivers.

2) If that doesn't work, try uninstalling the device in Device Manager and let Windows recognize it on reboot.

3) If that doesn't work, try updating your motherboard/chipset drivers.
