Windows 7: No picture in Live TV

No picture in Live TV

Hi folks, I'm new here and appreciate the forum & the help it offers.
I bought a new computer last week & it's pre-installed with W7. When I first put in my Mini TV DVB-T USB stick, W7 found drivers for it and WMC recognised it and gave me instant TV to watch. However, just this last 2 days it all went sour. I still have the channels listed but on each one I get sound and just a black screen. No idea what changed, perhaps a Windows update as you get heaps of these when running a new system. Anyway I have tried running the USB drivers again and re scanning my channels but the result is still the same. Any ideas folks? It's so annoying knowing it has worked but now it won"t. Here's my system stats.

Hi, Welcome.
Check which version of Nvidia driver you are running. If it's 285.62 then this is your problem.
Either rollback driver or download and install version 290.36 beta from here.

rustberger, you were spot on, I was running 285.62 and updating to 290.36 fixed everything. Can't thank you enough. Cheers mate.

Windows Live Mail Picture Size
If I'm composing and email in Windows Live Mail and I click on "Add Photos" I can add them and put a frame and comments nicely, but the pictures send are quite small. How can I get it to email the pictures larger and still be able to add comments under them?
