    Are you trying to hook the new DVD burner onto the same IDE cable as the older one? I would suggest checking to jumper settings and make sure that one is master and one is slave and that the IDE cable is plugged in accordingly. I think the last slot on the cable goes into the master.
    what happens if you just leave the CD ROM in? try putting each one in individually and seeing if it still chokes. I guess if the new DVD doesn't work on its own than it probably is just a bad unit. good luck

    The keyboard and monitor sounds familiar to something that happened to me. It sounds like your graphics card might be loose, or broken. Check it, because you might have knocked it when you were moving cables/burners. If it's not that, I have no idea. Good luck with it.
