Lost both optical drives and system crashing
Earlier this week I made 6 copies of a CDR no problems. Yesterday went to update firmware on my m4 SSD via a imaged bootable CDR but then noticed that both my optical drives weren't showing. I'm overclocked using a modest multiplier and slight voltage bump to 4.077 and recently added new 2133 ram which my AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 can only use currently 1864. I only list this as general information. Earlier this week a larger MS update downloaded and updated without incident.
I was thinking that possibly the MS update somehow caused this and went to investigate a restore back to point but the only restore point the system had was for yesterday and not nearly far enough back I believe to fix this, I didn't try further with this yet. I'm at a loss but hope something will be found in the attached information.
So really two problems:
1) Optical drives are gone.
2) System is randomly restarting but not often.
