Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, I have a new laptop with Windows Vista Operating System - AMD Turion Dual core Mobile processor. I recently bought a Tech-Com USB2.0 Laptop TV tuner [SSD-TV-813] and made all the necessary connections. When I first tried to open the Honestech TVR Schedule it displayed ''Could not initialize the capture device''. I thought that there was some problem with the TV tuner and got it exchanged. To my surprise the new one also displayed the same thing. After spending two weeks of time in internet I found a solution [the attached image] to this problem. Now, I got rid of the initialization problem. But the TVR schedule is blank - is not playing any channels. If I switch on to HP webcam - it is fine and records well. But I am not able to watch any TV channels. Please, could anyone let me know if I had to install any driver or should I apply any software settings which I failed to do. I am eagerly waiting to watch TV. Please help me out. Thank you, lotus_flamingo

My son has a compac f500 (f503au) in which it had problems with Vista home premium on it and lots of hardware issues. we updated to win7 home addtion and the machine works twice as fast the bios and heat...


Sir, Your laptop is working perfectly. It is not that Win 7 is not recognising the dual cores of the AMD TURION 64. The information interface in Win 7 was designed that it recognises the dual cores as a single processor. So dont worry. Try "Advanced System Care" to repair all your registry,spyware,hard disk and all OS related problems. It too shows you the System Information. There are also lots of websites that scans your laptop and tells you the system information. Google it for those sites. Thank You.

Amd turion x2 rm70 vs intel core 2 duo t5750!!!!


I read this and don't believe you - yes the AMD dual core gets hot - yes AMD processor are HOT processors - is intel better - no there on par with AMD - the thu put rate is so close it doesn't matter - now vista basic is just that BASIC - if you want to bump it up - home premium 32 or 64 but ultimate 64 should get it going.

I got an AMD turion x2 64 processor in my new notebook n after reading reviews comparison to core 2 duo i m really tensed!


You made a good choice. In the CPU arena right now, the difference between the two CPUs is a toss up. The slight advantages of one vs. the other in benchmark tests is nominal and actually artificial..

What happens with an AMD CPU is with the associated GPU onboard. And with a 64bit processor, the number of apps and games that take advantage of 64bit CPUs has always been limited but they are growing. This will only become more and more numerous.

The main architectural difference in the two was in how the two cpus communicated and the AMD was first to use a bus between the two cores and the Intel had to go to the onboard memory controller and back. That was in the first inception. Still, AMD has been far in advance of Intel and Intel has played catch up in tricks inside the cores and how the north and southbridge took advantage of the cores' architecture.

Needless to say, I'm an AMD power user and my gaming rig has an AMD dual core on an Asus/Nvidia board and an Nvidia PCIe 9800 GPU.

In the long run, all modern notebooks require you to own a pad cooler to use these in your lap or not, they all produce heat. So, just get a good one designed for your laptop so it snaps into place and will keep your rig nice and cool.

At a LAN Party you won't suffer from having a dual core AMD cpu, you'll hold your own and it will be an even playing field and the wins will go to the person with the fastest fingers... as it should be.

Sleep easy friend,
