Windows 7: Hi all

Hi all

I was wondering if someone could shine some light on a problem i am having. I used to run windows xp (as did most of us ) in which i had a Leadtek winfast tv card installed and all worked fine...about a year ago i upgraded my pc to;

Windows 7 32 bit
p55usb3 motherboard
nvidia GeForce 210 and nvidia GeForce GT 210 (both running supporting 3 and sometimes 4 monitors)
i7 870 CPU
6 gig DDR3 ram
4TB storage HDD

and my leadtek winfast tv card.

It took me a while to get the card working initially because the drivers were so hard to find. I started my pc on 32 bit win 7 cos thats all i had at the time but a few months later i switched to windows 7 64 bit ( which is a complete new install lol ). Thats when i noticed that no matter what i did i could not get the card to instead of buying a new card for 64 bit i decided to go back to 32 bit which was faily easy as i had an acronis back up of my system. All was well for a couple of months untill the card ( which still tunes the tv stations ) started to play up. It wont pick up my VCR player i have plugged into it or my camera via the Svideo or CVBS...i have uninstalled the drivers ( the same ones i originally used initially on my 32 bit installation ) and re-installed them several times but to no this is where you come in, pat me on the back and say "s'ok rips i got it covered and have the answer you need lol"

Thanks for taking the time to read this long post

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-Bit

The only thing I can suggest is that you run the Windows Upgrade Advisor:

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

You can still use it even though you have Windows 7 installed and it will flag up any incompatibility issues.

In the mean time, you might want to uninstall the tv card driver then re-install it in compatibility mode for Windows Vista or Windows XP.
