Updated bios

Chipset drivers, make sure to install these.

as you can see they are updated and where just uploaded on 9-7-2009.

Also looking at the driver page does your motherboard have onboard video? if your not using it make sure to disable the onboard video in the bios.

Hi again.

For Shane: Well, I installed everything you told me and yes my motherboard includes internal video, but it can be disabled; the manual says it can be done actually, but when you try to do it you find out that the real options are different than the options in the manual (the disable option is not present)

Anyway, after installing the stuff you suggested the system improved its performance; first, the problem with the icons in the quick launch bar got solved and although the pause is still present, the duration got reduced by half. Besides, the videogames got stable and the video capture card software is working fine so far.

I'll test the system today and next week and if it keeps acting this way I'll consider the problem solved (I know the pause was not fixed, but since it was reduced the starting up time became reasonable)

Updated drivers always helps! I never install drivers off the cd's that come with the MB these days. They just get out dated to quick. But most manufactures do keep updated drivers on their sites.

Im glad to hear things have improved  ;D

For Evan and Shane.

The TV capture Card is still giving my problems... and it was working quite well in the previous system; now, could you help me finding the last version of the drivers? I've tried everywhere I know with no luck. The model is:

Lifeview Flyvideo 2000 / 3000 series (TV capture card series) V1380109 (DRV 20.40, Teletext 1.5)

The problem is that in some websites I've found that the last version is the 10.4000 and in other it is said that the last version is 20.51. When I check in my computer, the current version is the 1.3.20.40 and 20.40 for the software.

Thanks.

Ok first thing I found was they are aware of your bug with the tv tuner and MS has a fix.

as they say here

And the only flyvideo I could find was on their discontinued list

Hi.

About the fix from MS, I tried to install it, but since I have Service Pack 3, the installer programs says it is not necessary because that fix is for Windows Xp SP2 only.

I also checked the lifeview website you mention but none of those drivers works...

Hi, sorry again for the delay.

Those last drivers didn't work either. At least this time I could install them, but although windows recognized the card, the software didn't open and my computer ended going nuts and I had to restore the system.

But, I think I could solve the problem at the end; after restoring the system I decided to uninstall completely both the card's driver and the software and instead of installing them as usual (simply running the setup and leaving it installs the driver and the software) I decided to install the driver manually (using the cd, but leaving windows detect the hardware and using the cd to configure it) and then I run the setup to install only the software and I've had no more problems so I consider the case closed.

Thanks for your help and I hope the explanation of how all the issues were solved help other people.
