Problem when installing PCI card (TechniSat SkyStar 2 TV PCI) system lags,
Posted on 2006-03-19
The problem is like that,
Everythiung works fine , and in my box (Pentium 2.8 HT with 1GB or DDR ram) i allready have these pci cars : Pinnacle tv tuner and sound blaster live 5.1
A few days I bought the sattelite reciever: TechniSat SkyStar 2 TV PCI,
so I install the PCI card, I start windows, and they ask me to insert the drivers for the new found card, I insert the card's drivers cd (original) and the installation goes smoothely without any errors.The problem is that in the excact time that the drivers (or the card) gets enabled by the system, my computer lags, the lag is obvious in games, while playing music or ever moving the mouse pointer arround (lag meaning that every 2 seconds every thing stands still for half a seconds..and then the same again after 2 seconds).
When I reboot the machine and windows starts, i can hear the "welcome" music that windows have by default just fine! and thats because the pci card is not loaded yet.
when every is loaded, the system lags.
I Tried these things:
1.uninstall drivers, re install it. No result
2.uninstall drivers, change the slot of the pci card in two different slots. No result
3.uninstall also the tv tuner card (pinnacle) and then install ONLY the SkyStar card. No result
4.Change the PCI latency from the bios from 64 (the default) to 32, No result
5. >> >> to 128 and then to the maximum...still No result.
I dont know what else to do, now I have installed the Skystar card, and I have disable it from the Device Manager, and my pc works fine, as soon as I press the "Enable" button , in the Device manager over the Skystar card, the pc lags again...
I also check from the Device manager the Properties=>Resources=>And in the Conflict Device List it says : No Conflicts.
P.S. I dont think that the pci card is broken or non-functioning cause when I enable it their programs show that work just ok with the card..i just hace this lag ...
