My recently built pc, with win 2000, P4, does not "see" new hardware. What are some of the things that I might check to hopefully correct this? Thank you very much. Robert

In this case, it is a video capture card. I Have tried it in 3 different slots, with no success. Usually, with other PC builds, the PC will "see" the card, I insert the software for the card, and all is OK. Might it be a defective mother board? Thanks

Dear Robert,

Are there any other PCI cards installed?

If they work, your mother board works.

What is the manufacture of the video capture card?

I have an ASUS web cam that refused to work no matter what. Until I went to ASUS's website and downloaded the drivers, installed, and restarted my computer Windows would not let it work.

In your case, does the video capture instructions say to load the software before or after you install the card?

With the video and sound stuff, it could be tricky. :thumbsup:

Let us know,

Junkdk

Have you tried running the Add New Hardware Wizard in Control Panel?
