Well, due to my DVD drive not being about to burn DVDs half the time, which has caused me to waste a few blank DVDs (It rips them perfectly :rolleyes: ) I checked with the System Information tool to see if there were any conflicts. Heres a screenshot.

Anyway, I went to the Device manager tool to try and see what exactly was going on. Conflicting devices are meant to have a error symbol, and say they aren't working properly, aren't they? Well, it showed everything as working properly.
Anyway, how would I go about fixing this conflict? I'm assuming its my video card thats causing the issues (I installed that about a month ago)
Any help on fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
And would this be the reason for my DVD drive not working properly?

Thanks much :wave:

when you upgrade the video card,you need to check that you have enough power to run it
when you add the dvd power pull it may not have enough there to run it
put your specs into here

based on a quality psu and add 30% to the end result and this is the min you will need to run your system
video and power upgrades usually go hand in hand

I upgraded my psu at the same time I got the card.
