looks like your upgrade to xp pro sp2 has overwritten some files with the newer versions.......


un-install and then re-install your tv tuner card drivers and software..... if prompted sayin......file to be overwritten is older than the file on ur system....just replace the file with the older version....cause the drivers and the software that came with the card works best for that card.......than what ur sp2 has done.....guess he is the culprit.

fn+fn might work.....did u try pressing these keys to-gether.....not just once....but upto 3 times.....cause sometimes....

press once - lcd display
press twice - external display
press thrice - both displays ;)

Good Luck!
cheers!
