    I've got an HP DVD200e burner. When I try to start up the machine with the burner plugged in it gets to the Windows XP splash screen, blacks out, and reboots. Any ideas?

    Windows XP? What else do you need to know?

    have you already installed the drivers (or anything for that matter) regarding the DVD burner?

    is there a disc in the drive?

    my guess is that the dvd drive is conflicting with another device, and rather than jsut not functioning, its just shitting out and restarting.
