Problems after installing new power supply

  quintley 20:56 16 Feb 2010

System died, seemed to be power supply, bought a new one, installed it, everything seemed to come back. Except...two dvd-roms will start to work if I insert a cd or dvd, run for a minute, then stop. I'm running HP Pavilion with AMD 64X2 dual core processors, core processor 5200+, 2.61 gHz, 1.93 gb of RAM, windows XP service pack 3. Any thoughts on what to try or look for?

Even though it is new, the PSU could be faulty. Also does it have enough power to run all your hardware?

Everything else has been working for a while. New power supply is rated higher than old one.

I would thoroughly re-check all the connections to DVD/CD Drives and swap the Power connection from the PSU, I expect you have a spare connection.
