I would boot into safe mode remove the cd writer and reboot letting windows find it again.

If the cd writer is on its own ide connection then it should be set to master. If shared with a hard drive then it should be set to slave. Also you might want to try another cable.

i noticed you have 526 megs ram. is that inclusive of all memory? a stick of ram of that nature is 512 + a bit more.even with other ram unless i'm not getting it right, i'd double check the seating of the ram and go into bios setup as well and double check it
