HI,

Well i just reinstalled Xp on my pc and my tv tuner card is not working. my pc is an AMD64bit 3000+/1GB ram/6600GT 128MB/Gigabyte mobo. :lol:

The tv tuner card was working fine for somedays and suddenly got unistalled from the pc :help: . When i go into device manager and try to reinstall, it dosent installed as if I am giving the wrong drivers. I have reinstalled Xp 2 more times and the same events have occurred. :whistling:

Also i have noticed in Device manager>System devices there are two "PCI standard PCI-tp-PCI bridge" that ahve an exclamation mark.

they have the following error:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12)

If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

Click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooter for this device.

In their respective properties they are written as "PCI slot 4" and "PCI slot 5"

Whereas the tv tuner card is shown on "PCI slot 7"

How is this possible when i have only four pci slots???? :blink:

someone please help

regards,
croydon :)

Hi twistadias,

Welcome to Geeks to Go.

First of all a couple of questions.
Have you added any other devices to your computer recently?
Also when you reinstalled XP did you install all the motherboard drivers?

i have installed the latest drivers for my mobo and 3d card.

I had a 120GB ATA hdd before.
I had installed another 160GB SATA hdd just before the reinstallation

Changing the hdd should not cause this particular problem.

Another question now.
Have you made any changes to your motherboard BIOS recently?

There might be an IRQ conflict. Try to move the card to another pci slot.

Leave the card in it's current place where it is identified by windows. Remove the card special software in Add/Remove programs. Reinstall the motherboard's sound driver either from the drivers disk or by downloading and installing from the motherboard's manufacurer site. Check and make sure that you get sound from your speakers. After that reinstall the card's software. What happens now?
