Windows 7: It won't start!

17 Nov 2009   #11


ATI advertises the 5800 Series does have support for Microsoft DirectX 11, but I am fairly sure your TV Tuner is closer to DirectX 9...

To see, run DxDiag (32 bit and 64 bit reports available)

From start menu type dxdiag>hit enter
above you will see the utility, run it and make you select the WHQL and 64 bit check boxes as appicable.

System restore should have fixed the issue, unless someone was ill advised to turn that very important feature off.

Let us know how the re-install goes and please report back if the same issue occurs again.
