    everything seems to work fine. Not even the Vista installation DVD is able to

    Have you updated the drivers and other software to those that are Vista
    compatible? The Hauppauge Support website should have the information you

    Download the latest drivers from here:

    Remove your card, run the hardware clear application included in this download,
    insert the card, CANCEL any driver installation notices that Windows MAY offer,
    and follow the well illustrated directions on the page to the letter.

    Hi and thanks for your help.

    The problem is that windows won't boot at all when the card is plug in (i.e.
    even if no drivers are installed.) I have tried to update bios, graphic card
    drivers, soundcard drivers, motherbord inf files from msi, loads of bios
    configuration, different pci slots without success. If the card is removed
    Vista boots without problem. When the card is plug in it freeze at
    crcdisk.sys. It wont even boot in failsafe mode. It works fine under XP.

    I have tried to run the haupphauge driver install program but since no card
    is pluged in no files are copied.

    I'm more or less out of ideas of what to try next.
