TV-card installation gone bad
I just tried to install an old ATi all in wonder pro card in my system
it's a PCI card with 4mb memory and TV tuner
at first everything worked but i couldn't watch TV on it
the ATi tuning software wasn't installed so i installed it.
Now the computer wont load w2k instead it reboots after the post
I really need to make this card work
my TV at our summer house died so if i dont fix this soon i'll be without my beloved TV for a month !!
Windows detects the card and the ATi software is installed but there's no option for TV anywhere
What can i do `?

The ATi card is installed as a Secondary display adapter

Try going into safe mode and removing all of it from the device mangler...
Then reinstall it..No one dies a virgin, Life screws us all.

this might help also
Windows 2000 initializes a secondary display adapter in a manner which prohibits execution of the video BIOS on that adapter.
