Hi , I suggest to check for any thermal issues including condition of the video card fan / heat sinks ie dust ,
If supported you can run a LINUX disk like Ubuntu in live / try mode
If video works ok , then most likely a Windows environment incl hardware conflict or virus / driver corruption issue ,
but if not then most likely a video card hardware issue like bad card cooling fan or excessive dust - thermal shedding issue or card bios/chipset fault
If a likely software issue then uninstall and then reinstall the video card
Consult ASUS or Nvidia support
The procedure is something like this
Onboard video support ?
uninstall the video card driver and any video vendor configuration applets
Uninstall video card in device manager if still present.
Shut down and remove mains power cable
remove the hardware video card ,
(using anti static electricity procedures)
Attach onboard video to display
Power up and enter and configure BIOS setup if required, ie 1st seek onboard video
Bootup to Windows
Install the onboard video device
using Windows plug&play default driver executed during booting
Confirm working ok
Update the chipset driver (inf) if applicable,
Reinstall the hardware video card
Attach to display
Reconfig BIOS setup if required
Start to install default driver
Install video driver / update from card default using a known good driver whose setup file has been previously downloaded
restart and test
Go to the asus website. www.asus.com. Click on the support link. Lookup your specific product and model #. Input the operating system you are running. It will then list all available software/drivers for your card. Download and install the ones that you need. This should set you up. Hope this helps.
The product sold is maybe got defect on the audio device, even how you install the audio driver it would not accept the softwares. You can do troubleshooting.however, this issue also causes on the compatibilty of the os..becoz vista driver not compatible to xp os. please download latest audio driver in the motherbord manufacturer's website. however if this not work , its probably fault in the hardware and you need to replace the hardware.
Have you had a look at the cords? Is there any damage to the hardware itself?
Maybe there is something else wrong. Tried running virus scans? I know it's a long shot but it's amazing at what viruses do to your machine.
Look at the FAQ in www.encore-usa.com:
"When you see "Failed to Initialize Hardware" message, please be sure Video Card driver and Sound Card driver are properly installed by checking Device Manager under Computer Management. If the above conditions are met and you are still experiencing problem, it is necessary to perform a hardware reset procedure on the card. Here's how: power down the computer, unplug the TV Tuner Card from the motherboard, remove the jumper on the card (pin 2 and 3) and then put it back. Power back up the computer and then try to run the software again."
It seems that the card have some kind of issue that "hangs" its hardware, you should try also another TV Program like K-TV.
Mine did exactly that "Failed to initalize Hardware" but the free K-TV program worked! :)
