Power Supply Or DVD Drives, causing problems

  1. Hello,

    Recently when i powered onmy computer, it would reset itself constantly without ever booting to windows, this is because someone in my family thought they could turn off my pc by just plug before shutting it down etc.

    First of all i thought the harddrives had been corrupted on my comp
    (not the case as im using it to type this now)

    So i left it for a while,
    and i though why not try unplug the cd drive from the power supply,
    it worked,

    My PC booted to windows first time, and hasnt reset itself yet.

    So what i want to know is,
    can i just buy a new dvd drive?
    or will i need a new power supply?
