Sata DVD-ROM Causing possible PC freezing.

My Pc has a frozen a few times recently, when i turn it back on it just gets stuck at the post screen, so i decided to unplug my sata DVD-RW and it worked again, then it happened again half an hour ago and the same happened again, so unplugged the sata DVD-RW again.

How the hell could that cause my PC to Freeze?

Random BSOD, shut down and freezing WHAT IS CAUSING THIS?
Hi, I've posted here before about the same issue. Last time it turned out to be a faulty CPU, which I replaced. Now it seems that the new CPU is damaged also. I can't make any sense of the dump files. I need a quick answer: Are the errors caused by hardware (CPU), or are they caused by a driver...
