Have you messed with the mouse controls in control panel?

I havent changed any settings but my dad has been plugging in the tv card and messing with the sound card cables trying to get the tv card to work under XP.

What TV card? I have a Hauppauge WinTV and it works just fine. If the TV card is a Hauppauge tell him to get the XP drivers from www.hauppauge.com. As for the mouse accel, turn it off in the control panel under mouse settings.

Its a ATI-TV Wonder. I've downloaded the drivers pack for winXP but the card still isnt working, it says to install the drivers then run the software but the drivers wont install for some of the things and the software says it cant find a ATI installed.

hmm I did use the forum picture uploader but it didnt work, so heres my link.

The MouseAccelleration (None, Low, Medium and High) option is NOT available
in Windows XP. For some unknown reason MS decided to remove this feature and
implement it as a built-in mouse accelleration instead. So...mouse
accelleration is ALWAYS on in Windows XP (I think it's at medium speed).

If you have a Logitech Mouse and install their MouseWare the Mouse
Accelleration option will be available. BUT...that mouse accelleration is
added on top of the built-in mouse accelleration (which will make the mouse
accelleration even worse unless you select 'none' in the logitech mouse
properties).

The people who claims that they don't have any accelleration have probably
always played with some dregree of accelleration. That's why they don't
*feel* anything different. But since the accelleration is built-in it is
ALWAYS there.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
