I have recently formatted my hard drive, with windows xp professional installed.
After formatting, windows would cease to detect the Tv Tuner Card and a beeping sound occurs when i try to open the program. I get the Message: (Cannot find any video capture device).
I want to know if there is something wrong with the BIOS settings. If so please help with relevant detailed info.

What does it say about the tuner in the Device Manager?

Have you installed the device drivers for the tuner card? (they're usually a separate installation from the program used to view the output of the card).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

To praneel:

You sure that you have the correct drivers installed? Does Device Manager reflect the card being properly installed as a hardware item?

We had a similar inquiry last month (I believe) and it was a situation of trying to install the wrong drivers (IIRC).

What card do you have?

Use DScaler (http://www.dscaler.org/) TV Viewer it requires no drivers to be installed.
