    There could be several reasons why Windows is not finding the driver sets for items previously installed before the repair at the shop. What exactly did they do at the shop with your computer and why did you take it in?

    Nothing. He did nothing. When I took it to the shop it wouldn't do it.
    It wouldn't freeze up. It wouldn't make it funny noise. IT DID NOTHING. Go figure. But when I did bring it back up it hung up,wouldn't load windows. So I decided to try the mouse then the key board. Well I changed the mouse frist and it started right up and it hasn't froze yet.....
    Now he did put in my rewrite because I decided I didn't want to take the chance of messing things up.

    Unless the Tech had problems installing the CD-RW the installation normally would not interfer with any programs but we cannot discount that. Sometimes when the associated programs for hardware are installed then overwrite a file that is used by another item. At this point Win TV may have to be uninstalled and reinstalled to get it back online. Another very remote possiblilty is the PCI card for WinTV may of been shaken loose and will have to be reset.
