Looking into my remote crystal ball, I see that the additional heat caused
by using the CD is causing your PC to overheat, triggering a reboot. If you
are comfortable opening the case, shutdown, then clean the fans and filters
and heatsinks, making sure you don't knock out any cables.

Might also be caused by the PS; either aging, or just not big enough.
Cheers, Bob
