I’m having a lot of problems with a BenQ DW1640 since the first day I had it installed. It just throws a Blue Screen of Death at any random time: while burning, while ripping, or simply while copying some DVD files to the HDD. These problems started to arise only when I installed it, and they only happen while I’m using the DVDRW.
To eliminate any possibility of conflicting software, i formatted and reinstalled my Windows 2000 HDD. I’ve only installed DVD Decrypter and started to do some tests. After 30 minutes of reading some DVD, the BSOD popped up again. Now I’m testing the DVDRW in PIO mode, so far it hasn’t failed (so far means one hour or so) but It’s so much slower in this way that is probable that it has not failed yet because i’ve read so little data until now. However, I don’t want to use it in PIO mode, it’s so slow that is almost unusable…
The only abnormal thing that my computer appears to have is a 1.76v cpu voltage (it’s a AMD Duron 1.2hz) but it’s a very little over the standard, so i don’t think this can cause any problems.
Any leads ? suggestions ? I’ll supply any information anyone may need to help me.
