Default Dvd-Rw Resets Computer?!


When my I put DVDs in my "NEC3500", just before autoplay comes up, my computer resets. This is new, it didn't do this before - Also this doesnt seem to happen with CDs? The strangest think is that once it has reset, it doesn't do it with the same DVD again.

Is Autoplay doing this?

hmm... you must have a weak power supply... how many watts do you have?

...DVD RW's take a lot of juice

Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

I have what I thought was sample: 400W.

I have:

2 IDE Drives
1 Sata Drive
Athlon 64 3000
Radeon 9800
Asus K8N
1Gb Crucial Ram (2 x 512)
Network Card
And my DVD-RW

Surely that is enough?
