I am trying to add a pci tv card to my e machines pc. It has a pci e slot and 2 spare pci slots. I have connected it to both of the pci slots but when i try to install the drivers it says that i have not connected the device to the computer. Will these pci slots need to be enabled? If so how do i do this

thanks

The PCI slots will be enabled by default. Check to see if Device Manager shows any problems.

i have managed to get the tv card drivers to work and the device on device manager says it is working properly. The software that came with it win pvr says that the device is not there and so does windows media centre.

If the drivers are showing installed correctly, then I would recommend you check the manual for the TV card as to how to configure the software to get it to work.
