Default Computer shutsdown when cd inserted

sponsored links
Earlier posts have no useful information.

Gigabyte motherboard (forgot which model one with dual bios)
512ddr 400
52x32x52 LiteOn CD - RW
P4 2.8 ghz prescott technology
Geforce fx5600
SATA 160gig hdd

Recently removed DVD rom from system, also removed 512 stick of ram for another PC

Also installed SATA HDD to replace old 80gig IDE

Computer was returned to former original state when i built it.

Now when I insert a cd in windows XP pro, or try to run xp setup, the computer shuts down instantly. The pc also shuts down spontaniously at the bios menu. Any ideas why this is happening? Never had any problems before hand but my new pc needed the hardware. New PC has no problems either, nor does old system

Default Solution Reached

Seems that either my IDE being on IDE1 with CD rom attached as master and/or my firewire + addition USB ports and/or power plug in cdrom all being changed seemed to have stoped the crashing. Will try and work out which was the cause and post for future reference

Either the IDE Master/Slave is wrong or you need to reset the BIOS after making the change with the memory etc.
