Sony vaio Pcv v300g tv tuner device failed to open

I have the Sony PCV V300G PC/TV tuner. All products including DVD, Media, etc works except the TV Tuner. Sometime it does and sometimes it doesn't. I unloaded and reloaded just the TV tuner and it worked but when I restarted the system, it failed again. I have completed current updates and nothing is working. Any help would be great.

Install the Driver manually, the automatic installation of the driver is not installing the drivers properly, that is why when you restart the system it is not able to identify the device. for this uninstall the driver restart your system then install the driver manually.
