I was having trouble installing a TV card, it wasn't showing up as an uninstalled device and the and running an installer gave a no support error. So I wanted to enter my bios to see if there was some PCIE setting screwing things up, but whenever I press delete on the loading screen it won't enter the bios instead it just stalls on the loading screen. I've tried multiple times it does it every time.

I'm running windows XP SP3 the MB is an ABIT IP35

You can try resetting the CMOS jumper on the motherboard...then attempt to enter the BIOS.

You might also want to possibly consider replacing your CMOS battery. When it starts to weaken, the BIOS/system tends to act strangely, IME.

Does the PC load up if the tuner isn't installed?

You may need to flash the BIOS to fix this issue.
