Question about AOpen ADD Card AGP Graphic Card

1 Answer

Installation Woes! I have tried to get the green box UP101 box to install. I keep getting the message, There was a problem installing this hardware. An error occurred during installation of the device. The data is invalid. I have uninstalled the software, cleaned out the registry to be sure that there wasn't any residual junk causing the problem. I have tried any number of times and can't get it to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It seems that the USB is not being recognized. I have taken the device out and replugged it and nothing pops up though the device shows up in the hardware with the usual yellow exclamation mark. driver

Re: Installation Woes!

You may have two problems (interrelated are always messy and it's easy to get confused).
First I suggest you address the USB problem...delete the device and restart your machine. Have the mobo cd handy. When the plug and play routine starts first try pointing it to everywhere but the may get lucky and find it at Microsoft or somewhere on your machine already.

Secondly use windows explorer and delete any folder that contained installation information about the "green box up101",

Next create a clean this (and you may think it's unnecessary) first run either AVG or Avast on your entire computer, next get rid of malware and even some trojans not detectable by these programs...use SPYBOT, next use Ccleaner to both get rid of junk and registry leftovers...use both the application and windows cleaning functions (don't check the uninstall box section or uncheck if it's checked), next try Wise Registry cleaner (just fix the green items). Now run a thorough scandisk. All the programs are free off the net....cnet downloads or freewarefiles as example locations. Why did I put you through all of this....because if it doesn't work when you now attempt to reinstall we at least know that other stuff is not doing to you.

This process should result in success unless the hardware is bad....(doubtful based on what you have stated). Hope this helps....have fun for a couple of hours and don't stay awake for the thorough scandisk process. Tango.

Windows 8 graphics card installation problem


I think you are installing the wrong one. Try going to the device manager and refresh it to see if the hardware is detected. If yes, then look for a question mark or exclamation point to make sure that the generic driver is not yet installed. if installed then try scanning your computer with RadarSync to make sure that it's up-to-date.

Unsure if graphics card installed correctly

Try booting in Safe Mode. If even there you don't have the image then this is a hardware problem, either the card is defective or you have installed it or the cables wrongly.

At Step 4 of the installation, each time I hit "Start Recording," I get a pop-up message that says "Please enter a valid record time." But, it will not let me enter a time into the box.

it is becuase the dazzle capture device is not selected as your video source. Please try to go back to step number 1 select video source . Make sure that pinnacle file capture is not selected but the dazzle is selected then try it again.

ATI Radeon X1300 wont work with my Vista 32 bit

Try this.

Download the unified Radeon drivers from ATI's website... do not use Windows update. Get the Drivers Only package. for Vista 32-bit

If you can get to the desktop:
Uninstall the existing display drivers by using the remove hardware utility. Whatever they are... remove them. Reboot. Windows will try to reinstall the drivers on the next boot. If it allows you cancel the installation at any time during install do it. Run the downloaded package from ATI. Reboot.

If you can't get to the desktop:
Press F8 when booting and enter safe mode with networking. Download the ATI drivers from for Vista 32-bit.
Uninstall the display drivers. Reboot. Should take you to the desktop on the next boot so you can run the install program.
