PC Crashes on playing Audio CDs

By Saxman642 ·
Problem:
User with a PC that freezes if an audio Cd is inserted.it reads data Cds fine. Tried the following: 1. Diabling autoplay on CD-ROM. 2. Using Winamp/CD Player to play CD. 3.Used msconfig to remove Startup programs 4. Running scandisk, system file checker, registry checker

Same result each time: PC freezes when I try to play an Audio CD

System is a Compaq Presario 2254 running Win98 1st Ed., AMD 266MHz, 32MB RAM, 4GB Drive

I could use a few more ideas short of reinstalling Windows (which would be impractical...)

Not wanting to state the obvious, but it appears that the spindle bearing is going dry from what you said. Rather than try to lube it, I would replace it as bearings score when the run dry.
