|"Acer - Aspire 600P"|
I searched web with: "Acer Aspire 600P"
- zero "hits"
You're quoting the wrong spec, or you made a typo.
I have a Acer Aspire laptop of a friend's here at the moment.
On it's label on the bottom of it it says:
Acer 5100 series - 5100 is generally okay.
Model No. BL51 - That's not the model Acer wants on their sites.
When I open up the laptop, there's another label there
- that's the specific model number, e.g. for a model with a black English US keyboard, sold in Canada, Vista Premium on it, network card instead of a 56K modem card, a mboard with a VGA port instead of a VGA and DVI port, etc.
You can also use the serial number on the stuck on label that has the barcodes on it to find the exact model and the specific hardware on the computer:
On this laptop, the serial number they want is the longer one under the first bar code, not the SNID one under the second bar code.
""Which exact model is it ?
Winfast PVR, Winfast PVR2000, Winfast PVR20xx, Winfast PVR3000 Deluxe , etc.""
"Winfast PVR, Will Winfast PVR200 will work?"
If it's Winfast PVR and not a Winfast PVR2000, NO!
'"If you have the box (packaging) for it, the exact model would be on that, perhaps on a stuck on label; if you don't, that may be on a label on the TV card (better) or printed on the surface of the card (may not be as helpful as a model on a label) ; if not, or in any case, if you can find a FCC ID: number on it, quote that."'
Did you look at the card itself? Does it have a FCC ID number on it? If so, quote that, no typos please !
""What country did you buy it in ?""
"MADE IN CHINA"
Not what country it was made in!
What country did you buy the card in?
"ITS PCI CARD"
""...card is all the way down in it's slot ?""
"WILL TRY AGAIN."
Okay. Good. Good.
""Did you load the drivers for the mboard after you re-installed Windows ? See the begining of Response 2.""
XP doesn't have the drivers built in for most things that first came out after XP was first released, circa 2001, and it doesn't have some of the drivers built in for things made before that.
Whenever you load Windows from a regular Windows CD (or DVD) from scratch, after Setup is finished you must load the drivers for the mboard, particularly the main chipset drivers, in order for Windows to have the proper drivers for and information about your mboard hardware, including it's AGP or PCI-E, ACPI, USB 2.0 if it has it, and hard drive controller support. If you have a generic system and have the CD that came with the mboard, all the necessary drivers are on it. If you load drivers from the web, brand name system builders and mboard makers often DO NOT have the main chipset drivers listed in the downloads for your model - in that case you must go to the maker of the main chipset's web site, get the drivers, and load them.
Load the main chipset drivers first.
If you don't know where to get the proper drivers, I need the proper model for your Acer, in order for me to be able to tell you where to get what you need !
""Have you installed the SP3 updates yet ?
See the middle of Response 2.""
"I M RUNNING WIN XP ONLY. NO SERVICE PACK."
Only the original XP CDs have no Service Pack updates.
Microsoft original CDs with SP1 updates included that I've seen do not have SP1 printed on them, but when you look in System Information, before you have installed SPx updates, it will show SPI there.
(Start - Run - type: msinfo32 , click on OK or press Enter. That's shown on the right side of the first screen you see.)
CDs with SP2 or SP3 updates included have SP2 or SP3 printed on the CD.
The best time to install SP3 updates is before you have installed other software, ESPECIALLY BEFORE you install NAV !!
See the middle of Response 2.
""What anti-malware software do you have installed?
(anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-trojan, etc. etc.)""
Only NAV ?
Aha ! That may be at least part of your problem.
See Response 6 in this:
scroll down, and read it, starting at:
"Things I do see of concern in seawatch1's lines in Response 2......
- you have McAfee, Malwarebytes, and Avast! anti-malware programs installed."
NAV definately has one or more resident modules.
Sometimes when you install software, the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs interfere with the proper installation of the software, and usually you get no indication of that while installing the software. All you know is that after the software is installed it doesn't work properly for some unknown reason.
Because of that possibility, you should always disable the resident module(s) of anti-malware software (or un-install the anti-malware software) BEFORE you install software yourself , or before any major software package is installed, e.g. SP2 or SP3 updates, Microsoft Office, a game, etc., etc. ,
You need to try this - either disable ALL the resident modules in NAV in the program itself, or un-install NAV, BEFORE you install the TV tuner software.
You may need to un-install the TV Tuner software you sucessfully installed before in Add/Remove programs, and install it again with the resident modules in NAV disabled or NAV un-installed.
NOTE that I have read info that says, and I have personally seen, that the SP3 updates will NOT install properly until you have un-installed NAV !! Disabling it's resident modules is not enough !!
This applied for NAV 2006 ? on my brother's computer - it probably still applies...
The glitch with un-installing NAV is it and all Symantec products since 2005 have anti-piracy protection built in. Information is sent to Symantec over the internet while you're installing the software, or after the next time the computer has access to the internet. If you un-install the software and try to install it again (or if you try to install it on more than one computer) the installation will NOT be successful, or you won't be able to use or update the software, because Symanatec already has the info that that copy of the product has already been installed ! My brother had to contact the Symantec web site by email and tell them he wants to re-install his own software, and they emailed him back (in about a week) when the info they had on the Symantec web site had been deleted. See the Symantec web site regarding that - re-installing your software - for more info about the current situation.
If you can't use NAV because of that situation for a while, load the free version of AVG or Avast! or similar in the mean time.
""For the Winfast PVR2000 (the procedure for other products is probably similar):""
""Q: How to update the PVR2000 drivers after downloading them from the website ?
A: Link to download answers
If you don't have Winfast PVR2000, that info may or may not be of help.
