more bitching about my computer

okay.. the latest news: problems 3 and 4 of last night solved themselves in some fashion. problem two is pseudo solved because my systray randomly hides programs. things that i know are running, theyre in the task manager processes list, but theyre not on the systray. yeah. and as to problem 1, i now suspect it is a problem with the drive itself. i discovered that cds can play in my RW drive (despite it having NO AUDIO CABLE???) and sound just fine, but they click and skip and beep in my normal drive

last one, i promise

ok, here is my cd issue as it stands: the cd drive, played thru winamp, skips like fuck. the cd drive, played thru dbpoweramp, skips but somewhat less. the cdrw, played thru winamp, is perfect. dbpoweramp does not detect cds in that drive. music ripped from the cd drive is perfect. the cd drive is connected to the soundcard with an audio cable, the cdrw is not.

i am at a loss.
