After I have used the DVD/CD to either record or read and files have been closed, when I press the eject button on the drive my computer restarts. Also, this happens when I use the eject option in the drives properties . When the drove has not been used for a while this doesn't happen. Opinion ....... It appears that the drive is causing a disruption in power. All suggestions are welcome.

I've seen once a similar behaviour on another (no IBM/Lenovo) desktop computer and there it was an IDE cable problem. So you might want to check the internal cable connection of your DVD/CD, possibly swap the cable and then see if the problem still persists or not.

Thanks for the response and the suggetion,. I have made other changes to cure this problem and I will wait and see if they have been effective. I may have to follow your suggestion and if I do I will let you know the results. I bought this Lenovo during the last week of Dec 2007 and I think I like it. I have had some software problems when I installed a new AntiVirus/Firewall package. But the problem is with the software and nothing to do with other software/hardware. Sorry about the spelling and verbiage in my initial post. Carl
