    TV Tuner card, No post

    Hello everyone !

    I just recently purchased a Hauppauge WIN TV HVR 1600 Tv tuner card to go with my PC. When I first installed my card, my windows would not detect it, not even a "New hardware found" message in the tray icon area

    So I restarted my computer, and still no go, So I popped in the CD-Rom to install my drivers to see if that would do anything, and I would get the "no hardware supported" error message

    So, I restarted again, but this time, I would get a black screen when windows would try to load with the little dot in the left top corner, and nothing, I also tried to enter safe mode... and it would not allow me

    When I remove my card, windows loads fine

    The card clearly states that it does work with windows 7... maybe it has something to do with my hardware ?

    EVGA X58 SLI LE - Motherboard
    6 GB Corsair Dominator - Memory
    i7 920 - CPU
    ATI Radeon 5870 - GPU

    If anyone had any way of telling me why, or what I can do to make this work, I would be very grateful !
