Problems with PVR 500 MCE and Chaintech GeForce 6600 GT PCI-E

Problems with PVR 500 MCE and Chaintech GeForce 6600 GT PCI-E

It seems they can co-exist in my brand new Intel 925XCV motherboard. As soon
as I install the tuner card, windows boots but hangs on a black screen
before the logon screen is ever displayed.

If I boot in VGA mode, it boots fine.

My BIOS has been updated and I've tried various driver versions for the
Video card. I have also tried moving it to each of the 3 PCI slots that I
have - all to no avail.

I am waiting for e-mail responses from Chaintech, Intel and Hauppauge, but
at this point I'm stuck.

The 500 MCE was tested in an ASUS motherboard with an nVidia 5700 LE video
card and worked flawlessly.

Any ideas from the readers of this group would be greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advance

Steve

I hope you're running all this on at least a good quality 400 watt power
supply. If you're trying to run this on anything under a 350 watt, that would
be a very likely culprit.
