RAM problem

  1. Why whenever installing the DVD burner into the CPU, the RAM will be damaged? My friends and even myself have this sort of problem. I have two RAM in my CPU, one is 128MB and another is 512MB. After I have plugged in my new DVD burner into my CPU, I switch on my PC. Then my PC's screen shows some sort like the DOS and only then I notice that my 128MB RAM was damaged.

    Does it mean there's a need to unplugged all the RAM from the CPU before installing DVD burner?
    Or may be the damage of the RAM is due to electrostatic?

    installing a DVD burner cant damage your RAM.
    unless you physically damaged your RAM while plugging the DVD burner in the CPU Cabinet.
