Phillips cd-r arent working.. dont know if its the cd-r brand or if the burner isnt working

try to buy another cd-r w/ other brand its much cheaper than buying another cd burner. If there is still a problem buy again a cd-r but w/ other brand again if still isn't working the problem is in your cd/dvd burner..

Hp 1040i xp problem

I'm not sure if this will help you but read this link I'm sending. I went round and round with 3 different highend motherboards and processors and kept getting error after error, everything I read in forums, the tech guys, everybody seemed to go to my memory as the problem but low and behold I wasn't believing them and my research paid off. Maybe the intel/hp problems I was having are related to yours. The acceleration software maybe. I dont know but you might want to give it go. I was a little shocked that my brand new dvd writer intel conflict would cause the blue screen of death. sorry so long but if this helps anyone I'll be glad. Thanks, great days to all, Dave

Not working

Did this just start recently?
Has it ever worked or are you just installing the drives?

Try doing a System Restore.
Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.
Back to the day before that it worked.
If this doesn't work, reseat the wires on the back of the drive.
(Or if they are new, return them to the store)

My acer

How long has it been giving this problem, if its less than a cpl days you can try restoring to a previous date since some viruses ca cause that problem. If that doesnt work or your system isnt infected then i guess your drive is dead and you will need to get a new one... you could also try your drive on another computer, to ensure its dead.. Let me know what happens..
