Have you tried ignoring the monitor error, that is pressing F1?
Additionally, you can try, use a separate power connector for the DVD drive not piggybacked to the one used by the HD. If your drives are SATA, double check on the power adapter. If your DVD is external and USB connected, check its own power supply. Further you may want to un-check the Auto Power OFF in Power Management for USBs.
If you think the problem is PSU related, you can try lowering your BIOS/CMOS settings down to Default and not Optimized.
Of course the next best try would be to use a another PSU preferably with a higher wattage.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
