OK, I don't even know where to begin. Everything was fine a week ago, and\nnow it's gone bonkers. I bought a DVD burner, installed it and everything\nwas fine. I burned a couple of disks; things worked. Then one day it\nstopped in the middle of a disk and has not worked since. I keep getting an\nerror message like "can not read device because of I/O error". In the\nprocess of trying to make it work, I took it out and put it back in, just as\nI had before. About the same time, I was having trouble with my EZ\nantivirus. I was told to run Winsock, which I did. Now my computer keeps\nrestarting, sometimes right when I start the computer. The long story is\nbecause I do not know what caused the problem. I have checked, and the\nauto-restart on critical errors is not enabled in windows xp. Could some\none help me, or direct me to possible solutions to my problem:\n\n1. Why is my computer restarting for no apparent reason?\n2. Why can't I get my DVD player to work?
