TV card flickering and black screen

by gandalf029 / July 20, 2013 8:39 AM PDT

I recently purchased a TV Card for my medion mt7. I have installed all drivers and hardware but whenever I select the tv input I just get a black screen and some times get audio. When I select composite input I can see the picture and get audio but it is constantly flickering. Any help would be much appreciated

Try it on another PC and other video source.

In reply to: Thanks

But most of the time if folk could fix it it's some cable or just PC troubles. But as presented it's defective.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
