Ok, here's what I did. I did a clean install of win2k, then reinstalled the fast card.
I reinstalled the fast software.

This time all software installed ok, all drivers installed ok.

No conflicts or problems according to device manager.

My video view screen is all distorted. I will send a sample to anyone who would like to see. Just give me your email and I will attach a jpeg.

My system, Dell Dimension 4100, Ati Radeon 32mg video card, 933mgz, Sound Blaster Live Value....Any Ideas? I would really love to use Win2k. If I give up does anyone out there no how to get around the 3.99 gig limit on video files in Win 98 SE?..Ron.

A Dell Dimension 4100!

I have not read any posts from anyone getting DV.now AV to work in a Dell 4100. I have read a lot of frustrated posts from 4100 owners here and in the bcastvideo forums. It is possible that the DELL Dimension 4100 is not compatible with the DV.now boards.

Has anyone gotten a DELL Dimension 4100 to work with DV.now!

Is that Radeon an All-In-Wonder? If it is, then that's the problem. I tried the Radeon AIW in my setup, and it had the same problem. The DV.now AV has to be the only capture card in your system, and the AIW is also a capture card.

Joe,
My DV Now.AV resides happily with my Radeon vivo which is also a capture card. I don't think that's the problem. It could possibly have something to do with the TV tuner, because otherwise mine is the same card and it works fine.

My Radeon is not a capture card. It is a Radeon AGP DDR (Video Display Card only).
Thanks though.

I have to give up using win2k for now, I have a show to do and it can't wait. I have ordered a Gforce2 64 mg video display card. If anyone has gotten fast forward to work with a Dell Dimension 4100, I would love to here from you...

The problem lies with the Radeon's Overlay drivers and the Hardware overlay of the C-Cube chip. Here is what I do. Before I start a project, I bring up the windows "Display Properties" Page, go to the "Settings" tab, and click on the Advanced button. Once on this page, go to the "Troubleshooting" tab. Now move the "Hardware Acceleration" tab to the position two spots from the left (The one that states that all Direct X & Direct 3d acceleration will be disabled). Once your done using the DV.Now AV, move the slider back.

Good Luck,
BTH

I had the same display described above after installing Windows 2000 on my Dell 4100. DV.now AV had worked under ME, but not under Win2K.

My problem was fixed after Dell posted a new driver for the 32MB Radeon card, v. D7.52c A02 (dated 4/26/01). You can download it at http://support.dell.com

Because of peculiarities the 4100 motherboard, the drivers from the ATI site can't be installed. The Dell-supplied drivers indicate that they are version 5.13.1.3127.

I have an ATI AIW Radeon and have no problems with my DVnowAV. I can still elect to capture with my AIW (Why would I anymore?!!) or with the DVnowAV with no problems or changing of direct X settings.
