This tuner isn't supported by Vista.  With digital TV around the corner, most of the older tv tuner cards are being phased out.  There are some good deals out there on new digital tv tuner cards.

    Re: vista won't boot after tv wonder tuner 650gets installed 
      Was this post helpful ?  

      











    FOUND IT!!!
     
    Here is the workaround...

    Remove Card (TV Tuner in this case)
    Install Vista
    From within Vista, Right click on command prompt (it is under accessories) and select "Run as Administrator"
    From Command window, type in

    bcdedit /set configaccesspolicy disallowmmconfig

    There is a space after the "t" in bcdedit if you cannot tell from the text above.

    exit out of everything
    shut down system
    install card
    you are done, and life is good.

I want to get driver tv tuner for acer aspire l3600


It's a problem for us to assume since you didn't mention the Operating System installed on the Acer Aspire... moreover there are two types of tv tuner card that comes with this model. I hope you'll not mind letting us know all these next time so that we can help you better.

If the operating system install on your system is Windows 7 the click the below links to download

Acer Aspire L3600 Connexant Tv Tuner driver for windows 7

Acer Aspire L3600 Yuan Tv Tuner driver for windows 7
Once you click the link, download will automatically begin. You'll need winrar or winzip to extract the files. Extract the files and run the setup or as per your convenience.

Acer Aspire L3600 Yuan Tv Tuner driver for windows vista

Currently, there's no drivers available for windows xp but you can still run it by using the "Device Manager" > "Update Drivers" wizard after extracting the windows vista drivers.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a medion driver disc for windows 7 upgrade kit. When i try to install it no instructions appear just 7 programs : Chipset, Raid, TV Tuner, WLan, Lan, Sound & VGA how do I install windows 7 ?


Did this come with your computer or did you purchase it from somewhere? This doesn't install Win 7, just the drivers after the upgrade. If you purchased this cd, the drivers are only good for a Medion computer.

I try to install the tv tuner that designed to windows vista 32-bit but my laptop has a vista premium 64-bit. why it's not working?


which brand of tv tunner> also which type. I assume it is a usb. YOu may just need a 64-bit driver which may be on the disk which came with the tuner. Baring that you may be able to go online to the web site of the company that made the tuner and download the 64-bit driver from there.

No tv signal on wake up


I recently dealt with the same problem. Client had upgraded to Vista on a Gigabyte M-board equipped desktop, and sound was absent until reboot, whenever PC was aroused. Client wanted me to reinstall Vista. Installed with all peripherals connected and loaded all unrecognized drivers after install. Still same problem, and nmoticed many other features disappeared after wake-up as well (extra/dedicated keyboard functions, scroll wheel on mouse, PCI-based PCMCIA card and the modem!). Sound was all my client cared about, so I wrote mfg. and got this response: Our driver is OK, follows all Vista uniform specs and addresses S1/S3 properly, but Vista does not have all its wake up from suspend/hibernate resolved, for many of our components/drivers. This is a Vista problem that MS assures us is being addressed". Client was not happy with "waiting for MS to address the envelope, please" so we reinstalled XP 64b and all works fine now. This is also your choice: wait till MS-hell freezes over, -or go back to XP. (or install Linux). Sorry. Apparently, some Vista problems just can't be "addressed yet".
