MB: Sapphire Axion A3-A275
Chipset: ATI A3-M275
BIOS: Award, vers. unknkown, explained below
OS: Win XP OEM pre-install
After I bought the PC I installed a CD-RW from my older computer (CyberDrive CW058D), but it causes WinXP to freeze on startup. It works fine in Safe Mode: I can burn CDs and play them, and Device Manager doesn't report any problems. The older computer was Win95. When I disable the CD-RW it boots fine.
NOTE: the CD-RW is on WinXP's HCL.
To complicate things:
1. My MB manual doesn't tell me how to flash the BIOS.
2. The system boots so fast I can't catch the BIOS s/n!
Thanks in advance for your help.
