Howdy!

I just got a new computer:
OS: XP/Vista (dual boot)
RAM: 1023 MB
Processor: AMD Sempron™ Processor 2800+ 1.60 GHz

When I got it the first thing I did was plug in basic cable to the tv tuner and it worked. My mom surprised me with digital cable the next day and so I hooked it up and start watching better tv lol. All of a sudden my comp freezes up then forces me to push the reset button on the cpu. I let it reboot and then windows (both of them) says that it found new hardware (the tv tuner) and when I pop in the driver cd for it the wizard still can't fnd the driver. I unplug the digital cable from the comp and it works again. I know, it is a no brainer... go back to the basic cable, but I really want digital, please :whistling:

Thanks

hi, welcome to geektogo

when you added the cable the first time, did you use the cd or did xp recognise it straight off, or was it done with wizard's help

i got it from my uncle who made the computer himself... he said he used the hardware wizard b/c the cd told him to... the cd has the drivers, but the wizard refuses to find it, even when i direct the wizard right to the folder

Just so yall know, it turns out that the tv tuner is not compatible with digital cable, so this thread can be closed.

TYVM for the attempt to fix it!
