Hiya Pete!
Why in the heck would you use VISTA?
It still has a ton of issues and driver problems?
I was a Beta Tester for MS Vista.
If you certian thats what you want, make sure you have all of the service packs or go back to the stable XP.

I've got an acer aspire z5700 with built in freeview says i have not got a tv tuner how can i use my freeview?


If it says so ..it does not mean you do not have it ..but probably it is just not enabled or uninstalled ..so my advice is to use the disk for drivers and install the TV tuner again and than try again .If you do not have the drivers get them from the support site ..I know for sure the TV tuner driver is present there..

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

Where can I find the original drivers for the tv-tuner?? And the answer is not on sony's website. I tried that, they only offer updates to the driver, but not the original drivers. My problem is that I...


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, there may be an old driver that you are able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

Iam using SAA 713X T.V CARD for xp .now my p.c os changed to windows7 but t.v card not working.how can i fix this problam can u help?


You just upgrade to new Operating System i.e. Windows 7. So all devices like Tv tuners cards etc. have different drivers for all operating systems . So you have to install the drivers of your Tv tuner card which is compatible to windows 7. Go to www.driversguide.com or go to your Tv tuner card maufacture site for drivers.

Sounds like the driver for the TV Tuner is not installed, or the video and audio drivers may not be installed properly.
Mine was always a bit wonky in XP, works like a charm in Vista or Windows 7 though

Dell Dimension 3000, ATI tuner issues


I have an older ATI turner as well and the older cards do not work too well with Windows Xp or Vista. You may be able to find a driver that works by performing a Google search for it, otherwise the cards are very inexpensive right now and you can pick up a new one, probably with HD, for less than $100.

I have upgraded my Sony Vaio VGC-RA830G to windows vista home premium, however, am having trouble with the tv tuner card drivers. I cannot find them at all for vista


Hi,

Windows Vista is still behind providing drivers for tv tunners....unless you buy new ones designed for vista. If you had your tv tuner for xp and it worked fine on that operating system than I am afraid that you are going to have to buy a new one for vista.

How ever you may find that microsoft or the third part supplier may be on the process of supplying software for your tv tunner.

Please let me know what happens woth you... I would be grateful to if you could let me have the serial number and the model number so that I can do research for you and try and help you out.

Regards,

Philip
