What's the model of the card? We could try searching on the internet to find a 64bit driver.

Did you try windows update to see if it finds a generic driver for the tv tuner card?

Slim chance on that one

I just picked up a cheap Videomate U100 USB tuner that failed to detect any drivers. Luckily the supplied Vista drivers works fine.

Raj, what exactly is the Tuner card? Many googlers make for light work

gemini usb tv box sleek 320E is the cheap tv tuner box

i got windows xp and vista 32 bit drivers but i cant use it in win 7 because i dont have drivers in win 7
windows update detects it as some other device and it updates the driver but it doesnt work on that!!!
google doesnt have luck for me!!!

Yep. Sorry mate, I looked high and low and it appears there are zero x64 drivers available for it for any OS.

Had you been running x32, you probably could have tried installing the Vista drivers in compatibility mode, but since you're running x64 it's 99.9% probable it simply won't work.

As Dinesh says, it may be time for a new tuner.

Sorry I couldn't help

As an absolute longshot, you could try the drivers:
Download Pinnacle&#8482 PCTV Hybrid Pro Stick 320e Driver for Microsoft® Windows® Vista 64-bit Edition

Try installing with compatibility mode.
