I tried removing and reinstalling the ati drivers using the install program on the ati cd that came with the computer. Although I am back where I started this post again, I did notice that the first part of the install failed because according to the message that showed up briefly I was not running in my basic VGA mode or something. I assumed this ment safe mode as that only loads basic drivers, but I tried that and got the same message.
So is there another way to boot only with the basic VGA capabilities?
OK so it turns out it was the TV card and I I downloaded the drivers from the hauppauge web site and my computer imediatly recognised them and installed with no problem. That is with the exception of the exclamation labeled PCI device, still I have a good idea where to go to get that I just havent had the time yet.
I just wanted to say thanks for your time and help
