Pc bootup problem

  baldyx 21:33 26 Jul 05

This is an intermittant problem whereby on PC bootup (Windows XP) ,the system does not load and a blank screen appears but as soon as I unplug the external dvd writer ,the system starts to boot up successfully.
After tthe boot up I can connect the external writer.

(My pc is Dell dimension 3000 with also internal dvd writer.)

I do not know why or how to fix it but I have 1 pc that once out of 4 or 5 startups will not start with any usb cable plugged in. I have put a sticky label on to remind me to unplug usb cables when it will not start. Sorry this is no help at all.
