Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

Dimension 3000, ATI TV Wonder 100 issues

\015 I have a Dell Dimension 3000 with Celeron. I installed a tuner (TV Wonder 100) a few years back. Recently I loaded some Microsoft upgrades and now I get an error msg when I open the tuner. It tells me to go to ATI to download updated drivers, when I do this it says the same error. When I do a system restore back to a time before the changes it works again, although it's always had some bugs.Is there a way to upgrade software and/or drivers and not have this issue? Can I upgrade the tuner, or is my system to old?\015

Answers :

Since you already tried to go to ATI to download the latest drivers, do this:
Go to control panel, and administrative tools.
Click on the event viewer and check out the system logs (click on system) and look for entries on the right side with a red X.
These will probably give you a clue just what part of the sytem is having a problem with the card.
If the problems occur when you use an application and not in Windows generically, click on the application logs and see if there is a problem there.
Be aware that this may take some sleuthing--the error messages are not always clear, but many times you can click on the link that takes you to Microsoft and they suggest what you can do.
