New HP DVD causes PC to shut down

  1. Hi guys - I recently bought a new HP DVD 1135t writer since my old CD-Rom (DVDRW IDE16x) wasn't reading cd's anymore. After installing it, I first received an error message saying ATAPI incompatible, press F1 to resume, and carried on.
    When i tried to load a CD my PC shut down and does this every time i try to load a cd.
    I tested the power supply and all looks fine, the fan seems to be working fine, tried changing the jumpers, even returned it to the shop and got a new HP DVD writer, and it still won't work!!
    I'm running out of ideas. Anyone have a clue what I should do - other than return it and get my money back?
    Cheers
