System restore is a relatively simple process in itself, However the complications are before and after the installation. Before the restore you need to be sure you have the installers for any applications you added because you will need to reinstall and if necessary configure them again after the restore. You will also need to copy your data to some offline device that will not be involved in the restore and then put it back when you are done. You should periodically backup your data and you should know how to restore it to the system. But how many applications/etc will you need to install and how much data will you be backing up and restoring -- that is the cost of the restore route. Oh yes one more thing -- deleting all the demo software off of the factory install to reclaim your precious hard drive space for thos mp3's or movies you have not yet burned to CD.

To perform the other operation of installing the necesssary items to support the television device appear to be less work. But as you will be changing signficantly a running system assuring you have a reasonably current backup is prudent (and nost of us know we do not have a reasonably current backup or any other backup for that matter). It would be wise to be comfortable with the restoration process for this backup -- unlike data somehow we need to get this backup back onto the computer without the hard drive operating system to help us. Ghost is one of the programs that would allow you to do this and it is even possible to create a backup set of cds that could restore themselves.

While you are considering the two basic options above I will tru ti track down the requirements for the TV install to see how difficult that part of the second option would be.

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.

    TV Tuner express card 54 DVB-T Medion

    you need to install/re-install the drivers for the expresscard, should be downloadable from medion. Also check in control-panel that the device is there. If you look in My Computer/control Panel/System/Device Manager and the device is listed, with a yellow exclamation mark. try removing/uninstalling. or physically remove from the computer, re-install and go through the new hardware wizard to set it up.
