Default 2 of my HD died help so it wont happen agian.

k my setup was like this.
HP computer i bought it in 2001

SIS 650
P4 16.ghz
768 ddr 2100 ram
wd 30 gb
wd 80 gb

i put the HD that came with the pc in oen the cd bay is a segate 40 gb.

dynex dvd +-r\ rw

The problem.

at 1st everythign worked right and my dvds were burning in 10mins. then soemthign weird happened. while burning with nero 6 the buffer keep resetign it self. it woudl go to 10% then reset to 0 and start. it woudl reapet this through out the whole burning. it took 30 min to finish . I didnt think anythign of it so i kept burnign dvds even though it took 30 mins. after a week or two my Pc didnt want to boot. it would stay int he black screen saying disk boot error. i turn off and on a couple of time and then it booted . i had to do this every time i wanted to boot. i went in to the bios and somethign weird happen the segate HD( that one that was in the cd-rom bay) had all sorts of wierd charaters and its name. i got out of the bios entered again and it was fine. A week after turnign on and off to boot the pc, the pc wouldnt boot no matter how many time i try. I check my bois and my two WD HDs dispeared. I tested the drive at a freind pc and there were dead.

My questiong is is there soemthign we my pc that i can fix? plz help. I think is got somethign to do with the dynex dvd burner. Hlep me narrow it down so it dotn happen a new pc im buying.

Power supply could be frying stuff i think because the HD's and DVD rely heavily on the PSU and dont usually have alot of protection against over voltage
