Soundblasters, Hauppauge Tuners, and several other PCI solutions have trouble under 64-bit Vista and 7 when over 4GB of RAM is installed. The reason? PCI cards map portions of their address space into RAM. More than 3GB of flat address space was unheard of when the cards were designed so they map the card into the 3-4GB space. Since Windows is using that space too you get a conflict.
Try this -- run msconfig, under boot tab, advanced options, temporarily limit maximum memory to 3GB and reboot. Uninstall and reinstall the driver software and see if that fixes it.
