Re: PC Shuts Down when Writing CD / DVD
That's a good point, what type of interface had the drive got ide/sata etc and depending on your mptherboard (and I'm not familiar specifically with yours) what sata interface (if your drive is sata) are you using?
It would be handy to save me time ;) if you can post a link to the GB page of your motherboard (uk site is fine, because thats where I am and I see your in the UK too) and also state what board revision you have.
As far as the ram goes, the higher the timing values the more relaxed the ram is running, so In most cases running DDR2 say at 5-5-5-18 is better for fault finding than running at the tighter and better performance giving 4-4-4-12.
But before altering voltage, it is wise to fully memtest the RAM, but there can be instances where although the RAM will work with memtest, in another enviroment where say the PSU is loaded up, the RAM's supply may suffer and if on the threshold of working correctly, may just "dip" below that threshold and "fall over".
