    I HAVE A PENTIUM 4 COMPUTER ( running Windows xp)WITH A CREATIVE LABS SOUND (blaster)CARD. TODAY I INSTALLED A SWANN TV TUNER CARD.(pci) SINCE DOING THIS I GET NO SOUND FROM MY USUALLY RELIABLE SPEAKERS/COMPUTER. THE SWANN CO. SEEMS TO BE ON HOLIDAYS, SO I CAN'T GET THEM ON PHONE
    WHEN I CLICK ON "pROGRAMS": AND THEN CLICK "TV TUNER", I KEEP GETTING A MESSAGE:
    "CANNOTFIND VIDEO CAPTURE DEVICE. PLEASE CHECK IT" ------------i uninstalled it and then installed again. NOW on "device manager" i get a yellow mark on "com port3" also a yellow mark under"sound and vidio controllers" next to "sound blaster16 orAWE 32 or compatible(WDM)

    This should really be in the PCs forum I think.
    You haven't said if the TV Tuner is a USB or PCI (plugs in to a slot on the PCs motherboard) type.
    If it is a PCI type you would need to check if it shows up in Device Manager...if it doesn't it means it isn't installed properly....try removing the software using add/remove programs (or maybe the software has its own uninstaller), physically remove the card then try it in a different PCI slot.
