Hiya and Welcome

This is a hardware question, but I'll have a go. I have found the specs for your PC. Id your DVD called Power? I don't think it is, but I could be wrong.

Lets first see if there are any conflicts. Go to Control Panel, then System. Go to the Device Manager tab, and look under DVD or CD ROM. Is there a yellow !

Also, whilst you're there, you will also be able to find the name of the manufacturer of the drive. Can you tell us?

Regards

eddie

Ah, power dvd is the program. Now I understand.

Is it called CyberLink PowerDVD? If so, what is the version number? If not, what is the manufacturer of the program?

In the Device Manager's Properties > Settings page for the DVD drive, is there a check box for DMA? If there is, try unchecking it.
