Hauppauge 1100 and code 12

  WtheM 09:14 07 Jun 2007

Just installed the above to my pc and it totally wiped out my internet connection. I have installed a pcm pcmcia card and connect wireless to a bb server. After installing the tv card, I was left with no signs of my connection. The error was, cannot find enough free devices, code 12.
Any ideas, please????
Oh, and it's Vista.......

Code 12
This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system. (Code 12)

Looks like it was trying to use the same resources as your pcmcia card.

In device manager - right click on the device - properties and check for conflicts also see if it allows you to alter waht IRQ it is using.

Thanks for that. This is the conclusion I've been pointed to. Do you know why this is happening? It's a new pc and though not the best in the world, I don't think its bad!
Is there a way round it? If I got an external pcm pcmcia adapter, connected by usb? Or a usb connected tv card?
