I just reformatted my harddrive do to major virus issues. I formatted it by taken it out of my desktop placing it in another desktop as the slave and did a full format. Before I did this my Radeon ATI 9250 video card worked fine. I reinstalled the hard drive turned the computer on and No Video output. So I took out the video card and plugged the monitor into the orginal slot and still no video output. Then I tried a different monitor still nothing both in orginal slot and with the Radeon card. So then I removed the CMOS battery in some hopes of something. Still nothing. I have a Comcrap Presario AMD Athlon 1.8ghertz 750mb Ram. What could be the problem?

Your model doesn't come with built-in storage, so that makes this easier. You should first put in another SD card and see if that helps. If it does, you'll probably have to reformat your first SD card, wiping everything on it. Sometimes formatting issues appear to Windows like a virus on an external device. If this does not fix the virus warning problem, then your virus is likely on your computer, not the camera.
A good virus scanner/remover might be in order for your computer.
One of two possibilities; the Motherboard or power supply. In my case it was the Motherboard. Those cheap capacitors tend to go bad over time without being used. I purchased a replacement motherboard(Foxconn RS 780 "bengal") from a place in WI. Skyline on Ebay. I would do a search on Ebay for Gateway Foxconn Bengal RS780 Motherboard. Then get the number and call. You can use the old processor, ram, and maybe the graphics card, but I'd run the onboard graphics first(if you do happen to have replaced the motherboard) to make sure the graphics card isn't causing an issue. You will need to do some research and reading on the net about installing new motherboards and hardware. If the motherboard is the same, Windows should still work with it. Do your homework first as this is only a suggestion as to your problem. It is what happened to my Gateway DX4300-03. Check all power supply related, graphics card and wire connections first before you consider the motherboard thing.
Try this reformat your pc again without using your video card, after installing Operating System (XP) instelled your motherboard software and then shut down your pc. Put the video card in its place and power on your pc, click add new program as it may pop-up after it detect your new hardware.Installed the video card software and restart your PC.
When you hit Save or Apply in the Control Panel, the driver remembers the settings. You did that right.
The problem might be when the computer restarts, that the graphics card doesn't correctly check for the SVIDEO output, OR your monitor is missing a resistor (some Sony and Panasonic) on the Chroma output that tells the video BIOS that there is actually something attached (DC-coupled). The latest NVIDIA drivers can detect AC-coupled monitors on the latest GPUs, but since the VBIOS sets the environment, the driver may not check again.
It is possible that uninstalling the video driver and installing a newer one might solve the problem
I had all the same problems and figured it out. Right click on my
computer and go to manage, then select the disk management option.
Right click on the drive and select partition. Then tell it to
partition the full size of the drive and make sure you dont let it use
the fat or fat32 options. It will then ask you to format when you
partition it, use then quick format and it formats. Works good now. I
did this on xp pro so I dont know if vista will be the same.
