Burner won't burn after AMD 64 install

By tjayreid ·
I have two cd/dvd burner drives that, up until I installed the 64-bit processor, worked just fine. After the installation, the burners would only get as far as maybe 10%, then crap out completely. In addition to this, the burn is actually started about a half inch out from the center of the disk. Ideas? Could it be the drivers for the processor?

A BIOS update?

And it could be drivers.

Already have flashed the BIOS as well. I am pretty well content on the driver being the culprit. Uninstalling that driver is the only thing I haven't tried yet, and that's because I had a external hard drive enclosure fry the north bridge of my mobo since then. Once I can afford a new motherboard, I will try it. Thanks for the response. Desipte the rating, you helped me think of a few other things. In the meantime, anyone else have any ideas?

Sounds very much like some form of conflict between the 64 Bit CPU and the installed software.

As you didn't mention a CPU Make I'm taking it for granted that it's an AMD unit so as you have changed an existing CPU on an already installed Windows System I would be looking at the actual drivers employed for the CPU not being correct for that new CPU.

Maybe a Repair Install will correct the problem but if you are looking at a new M'Board currently I would leave well enough alone until you get all the new hardware that you want and then do a clean install of your OS and programs.

Re-installation probably will fix it. With everyone I have talked to, the response has mostly been "it's your drivers", so I will get the new motherboard and see what happens with a reinstallation (which I was hoping to avoid. Oh well). If this doesn't fix it, I will just repost the question. Thanks to all who answered this.
