In my opinion the best site for downloading drivers is www.driverguide.com. The ask you to register but all have the same user name and password of

User: drivers
Password: all

You will find loads of drivers here for virtually anything

Hope this helps

Which version of Windows?

And, what CD burning software?

For Windows Me, 2000, and XP, the default Windows drivers are correct for the motherboard.
The IDE driver for the motherboard also takes care of the driver duties for the CD drive.

The driver for burning CDs is part of your CD burning software.

I always download drivers from the actual manufactures web site.

Driver Guide is a very good resource for links though.

Still, I don't think you have a driver problem.
I suspect that you either have a power supply problem, or your power supply is too small for your system.

Just with the hardware you listed, I would want a 300 Watt power supply.

With a smaller or a weak power supply, the power surge when you insert a CD could cause the motherboard to reset.

The reason that you do not have the problem in safe mode is that many drivers are disabled and the hardware actually draws less power from the power supply.
