When you try to set up my Tv Tuner in Windows Media Center, I get this error message: "TV Setup has encountered a serious problem. Click Finish to exit, and then try again. If this problem persists, restart Windows Media Center or the computer. »

I have a HP m8034n pc with a tuner Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1600 NTSC/ATSC Combo.  The pc came with Vista and Windows media center worked great just with the tv tuner.  I upgraded to Windows 7, December 2 and fail to put in place my tv with WMC tuner.  The recorded shows that I had before the upgrade to Windows 7 appear and play without problem in WMC. I used the hardware diagnostic tool that is installed on my pc to control the Tuner, and during the test, I can see fine TV stations.  This unit is compatible according to microsoft Windows 7. I have the latest driver and tried to uninstall and reinstall. I ran Windows Update and everything is up-to-date. After that WMC checks tuners, it says:

screen A___
WMC has discovered the following:
Analog cable (1 Tuner)

Other tuners or TV signals were detected but will not be configured.
(Show details)

Is this Setup correct and complete?
o Yes, configure TV with these results
o no, show more options
When I click on show details, it is said:

screen B___
No TV Signal
If a TV signal should be present, check your signal for following tuners connections and try again:
Hauppauge WinTV 418 BDA Tuner
There is another question, because he does not list my correct tv tuner. I click, so I'm now on A screen again.

When I click Yes, set up TV with these results,-(for the analog option Cable(1 tuner), I select my cable service is, and then click Next.) It then displays a confirmation of analog cable and my cable provider, I click Next again and the error message "installation TV met with a serious problem. Click Finish to exit, and then try again. If this problem persists, restart Windows Media Center or the computer. "appears.

I even tried to set up the signal manually and on the confirmation screen, I click Next, and get the exact same error.

I would really appreciate any help and if more details are required, please let me know.  Thank you!


I don't know what happened, I left my PC off overnight and planned reformatting today. But I decided to give him another chance. Instead of saying the tuner was not available. He showed me a static snow image strong, as he was trying to use my Analogue tuner. In fact, it is supposed to use the composite input for my cable box. I re set my TV signals, and now everything works well again. Its strange because I reboot half a dozen times last night and it's never worked. Leaving the PC turned off for the night must have done the trick, I guess.

    I have an Aver Media Combo G2 Media Center TV tuner card. Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. Everything worked fine and then for some reason any Windows Media was unable to download the TV program guide.  I thought I would try reinstalling the TV signal. Setup stopped when you try to download the latest updates. Some research has indicated that I had to manually run "mcupdate", I did. It passed me this hang up, but then I complete Setup with the above message.

    Now, I have no live TV function.

  • Hotmail keeps giving me this error message: ' we have updated Hotmail, so, please refresh your browser or close and sign in again. "


    I've had problems with my account main hotmail for several weeks now.   Since two days ago, it keeps giving me this error message: ' we have updated Hotmail, so, please refresh your browser or close and sign in again. " If you are trying to write a message, make sure that save you it as a draft".    The error message all the time, and now I can only open, reply and send messages when my account main hotmail is not having a hissing fit. I know this isn't my browser is because my old secondary hotmail account works great - NONE of these problems manifest with my secondary hotmail account more old.

    Other reasons why I suspect that there is a problem with this account:

    (1) my Outlook send and download messages from my older secondary hotmail account, but not the primary. The main account is the same one that keeps giving me the error message above. This is clearly a problem of HOTMAIL, not my browser or my computer.  I lost ALL my emails stored on the account main hotmail when it leaves working in Outlook.   Am upset and ready to move to gmail.

    (2) Outlook is able to download messages through spring 2010 of my main hotmail account.  It only syncs not with the account main hotmail, although he'll send occasionally this account.

    If there is a solution, please please let me know.

    Thanks a lot for the link to this article.
    It was most helpful.

    I also found this forum useful post:

    In particular, he said to check the event log of the computer that you are trying to connect to (the remote computer) to search for an event ID 2011, which would be entered in the time you finally tried to connect and does not.
    I did alt-click on the icon MY COMPUTER (from the remote computer) and the menu HANDLE, click the EVENT VIEWER folder (in the left pane), and then the SYSTEM folder under that.
    On the right pane, I found an ad for the event ID 2011 at the time wherever I finally tried to connect.

    To test this, I went to the VISTA laptop and tried to connect the computer to Office XP again, which gives a different error message on the VISTA laptop.
    When I went back on the XP desktop I tried to connect to and looked again to the event log, of course ANOTHER event ID 2011 has been registered with the new time of my additional attempt to connect.

    He confirmed that it was likely that the IRPStackSize was the problem, as your proposed article.

    Then I printed article how DO TO SAVE AND RESTORE the REGISTER to: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/322756/
    then backed up the registry (both by running a restore system to register and by exporting from the top level of the regedit).

    I then went in regedit on the desktop in XP for the
    There was NOT an entry for IRPStackSize in the right pane, so I followed the instructions in the add - it and change it to decimal 15.
    I rebooted and tried to connect but still got the same error.
    The article said that the default value is 15, so I assumed that adding input IRPStackSize to 15 has not changed anything.

    So I went into regedit and changed the value of IRPStackSize of 15 to 18, restarted and it solved the problem.

    I found that the following articles is also useful in the resolution of this problem (aside from the one you gave):

  • HP 14-r024tx Notebook PC: slow perfomarnce and crashes when you try to open Microsoft Publisher after restart/refresh


    I just bought my HP laptop 2 months ago. Everything was fine, quick and convenient until the market a few days ago, it prompted a message saying that I need to update it. So I did, and thereafter, all my installed applications like Skype, internet browsers, etc., have disappeared. I tried to reinstall applications and all goes well but a bit slower. I thought that I needed to update some applications to improve performance, so I checked for some and tried to install the.

    Then yesterday, when I tried to open Microsoft Publisher, my laptop suddenly froze. The mouse and the keyboard didn't work so I had to turn off using the power switch. And every time I turned it on, everything was just slow.

    Can you help me solve the problem? Also, can you help me to speed up its performance?

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Hi @blissss ,

    Thank you for visiting the Forums HP's Support and welcome. I will do my best to help you. I read on your 14 HP - laptop r024tx with slow speeds. Thank you for all the information on what is happening.

    Something is slowing down the laptop. Have you installed some antivirus or firewall? If you disable what are your speed better. I got a DVD in my notebook that has slowed the process of starting a lot. You can check this.

    Here's a document on improving your system.

    Make sure that all updates are completed within the control panel or click the Windows key and start typing the laptop settings, then go to update.

    Please let me know how it goes.

    Thank you.

  • "Receive the error message" your PC has encountered a problem and needs to restart.

    Original title: stuck in a reboot loop, can't connect.

    Today, my laptop (VAIO, Windows 8) restarted while I was there and since then has been very slow to start. During loading, I get messages such as 'Your PC came across a problem and must restart' and then 'preparation auto repair' again and again.

    I have tried rebooting several times and sometimes I'll get to the login screen, but when I log into my account (which is the only one available) it says "could not load user profile. Right now, I restarted and did not get to the login screen. It says "repair disk errors. This can take more than an hour to finish."

    Windows 8 is the operating system that is installed with the system. I tried to boot into safe mode several times (SHIFT and F8 at startup), but instead to get a menu of options the computer says "Your PC encountered a problem and needs to restart" and starts all over again.

    Hi Geo,

    What is the model number of the Sony VAIO laptop?

    This problem could be due to corruption of the system files, I suggest you try to perform auto repair using Windows 8 disc of Windows recovery environment (WinRE) and check if it helps.

    To run auto repair on follow computer Windows 8 as follows:

    a. insert the media (USB or DVD) and restart your computer.

    b. press the key F12 (usually it's F12, but it may differ between computer manufacturers) and choose the drive in which you inserted into the installation media.

    c. once that the Windows Setup window appears, follow these steps:

    d. click Next , and then select fix your computer.

    e. you will then see a blue screen and an option to choose. Choose the Troubleshooting option and select Advanced options.

    f. you can choose automatic repair of the advanced boot option.

    Keep us updated on the status of the issue.

  • Error message: Adobe Presenter has encountered an unexpected error when you work with that much...

    Suddenly, today, three of my colleagues around the United States with Presenter 7 licenses can no longer save PowerPoint files or work with presenter.  Each of us has created courses successfully last week.

    We all get the message 'unexpected error', tells us to "try to save your work in a new file, and then restart PowerPoint.»  If the problem persists, consult the help section... "We get the message even if we do is type a word on a slide, and try to save the file.

    We cannot open the host help menu... the same error message.

    So now, we can not save a PowerPoint file.  We cannot save a file in presenter.  We cannot save or import audio data to the presenter.  No matter what you click on the toolbar of the presenter, we get the same error message.  Nothing works.


    The updater you will get only 7.0.6. 7.0.7 was a major update, which took the presenter of an application from AS2 to AS3 application. I recommend to perform the process of update for 7.0.7, because it is 'necessary' to use with Connect 8.1 and newer. Published presentations wit 7.0.6 and older should work well.

    The 7.0.7 update process can be found here: http://helpx.adobe.com/presenter.html

    There is a link to download the updates of product, where you can get the installer for 7.0.7.

    There are also instructions for upgrading to 7.0.7 as a stand-alone application or as part of a Suite.
