Go to "Device Manager" and look for anything that has a yellow question mark. If you see this, you need to run the set up program for that device to install the driver/.inf file and let the setup program set other parameters.
Since you reformatted, you removed all your previous settings unless you backed those up previously. If it came with the laptop from the store, it should have come with a CD or DVD rom with the install program.
If you lost that, or cannot find it, go to the Sony website, select "support" and locate that driver or set up program and download it. Make an archive copy of it in case it is needed in the future. The device manager should identify what model of tuner card you have.
The problem must be either because of Hardware or software. You are saying that you already tried installing new drivers and softwares for the tuner card and checked, but its bad luck. So it seems the hardware device may be failed. So first ensure the hardware working properly by plugging tuner card into any of your friends system. If it works properly, then it must be surely software problem. We can try installing any other version of device drivers and softwares and make it work.
what kind of tv are you trying to hook to?? K once youve made the physical connection from computer to TV, Even using the Plug & play windows method you need a compatability driver to let the windows computer and the TV talk.
Once communication is establlished pictures, videos, movies,will play from computer to the TV
Google for and use a free program called 'cpuz' to identify your system components. Also try using device manager to determine the manufacturer/serial of your TV tuner chip/card.
Once you have determined the type/serial, have a look on google again to see if there are any links for the specific driver. If not, you could always try http://www.drivershq.com/Drivers/VistaDevices/Sony-TV-Tuner-Card-Driver/51593/Drivers.aspx Driver Detective.....even if you can't use it to download the driver (I think you have to pay), at least it will identify the one you need to focus on.
By the way, have you tried the device manager/right click on device/update driver/search online option yet??
after you hook the cable up to the tv, go into the tv's menu to make sure the input mode is set to s-video. then go into the control panel on your laptop and find the settings for your video card and set the output to "TV" or "Clone"
if you're hooking your VCR via analog video input of your TV then check that the yellow colored video wire goes to yout TV video input, will also be colored yellow inside the terminal. The white and red color inputs are for audio. Likewise the output of your VCD will have the same colord code Yellow for video, red/white for audio (stereo). After setting this up, select your TV function to video in, be sure to check your video input channel as well if you're having more than one video input. Video 1 or 2 or 3. Make sure your VCR is powered up when you start to setup your TV function select.
if you're hooking your VCR to your TV via RF signal (over your TV tuner) You need to scan the right frequency to get it tuned to your TV channel. Cabling willbe via RF antenna input of your TV and RF antenna out of your VCR.
There is a problem with the tv tuner card in the Computer.
Go to Control Panel, double click on System, (if you don't see system, in the top left pane of that window, click switch to classic view). In the dialog box that appears, click on the hardware tab, then click on device manager.
In this window, see if there is any yellow question mark icon beside the tv tuner device. If there is, then you will need to reinstall the software driver that came with it or you can download it from the internet.
If there is no yellow question mark, then just double-click on the device and check the device status to make sure it says "this device is working properly". If it doesn't say this, then there is a problem with the device. You can try to reinstall the driver but there is a big possibility that the tv tuner card might need replace.
Please let me know what happens.
