     So I recently discovered a problem with my PC that i have never encountered before.  I definitally think it's a hardware problem.  Nearly every time i put a CD in DVD drive, wether it be blank or executable, my PC will crash, it won't blue screen, it will just completely shut off.  Sometimes it will read the CD without crashing, but it's very random.  I put in a blank CD once, and as it was reading it, it crashed.  I put in a game disc and it started to install the game but than crashed again.  and eventually one thing led to another and i decided to reformat.  Of course it didn't do anything.  Still the same issue.  I checked all my plugs and wires to make sure everything was inserted correctly and firmly, ram sticks, everything, but i still keep getting the same thing. 

Could this be a power issue?  I'm still running off of the same power supply that came with my NZXT case, i think it's around 330 Watts? Which by todays standards is probably pretty low.  But I did get a new USB keyboard that hasa USB hub built in, it's all glowy and stuff, lights, new usb mouse, and i'm wondering if that might be the issue, if not, than i'm hoping someone can help me out.

System Specs:

Processor: AMD X2 64 Athlon +3800
Video Card: ATI Radeon X1600 512MB
80GB Hard Drive
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate x84(32bit)
abit KN9S Motherboard (if that helps at all?)

I don't think the issue would be cooling either, because I bought my case with cooling in mind.
