Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

I have a Gateway DX4710-05 with Windows Vista 64-bit and I'm trying to install a PCI HDTV TV Tuner. Everything seems to install ok, but I can't get it to scan for channels. The pci card is from Sabrent. I don't know which video card have.

Answers :

First you need to find out exact model of your TV Tuner. If it is installed it should be in
Start\\Control Panel\\System\\Device Manager\\Sound, video and game controllers.
To check installation you can double click it and in tab "General" you will see "This device is working properly" or not.

Knowing the board part number you can check out Sabrent web site for drivers: http://www.sabrent.com/#itemName=&itemID=0&section=Drivers and see if they have a newer one - if yes, then give it a try.

I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 that I'm trying to connect to my very old TV (16 years). I'm going through the VCR. I thought I could connect the laptop's VGA to the RGB port on the VCR, tune to the right channel, adjust the display on the laptop & poof --- big screen monitor. Well, no such luck.
