I have not checked in to AVS in a while since I found a relatively stable, workable platform:


mce 05 / microsoft remote

925xce mobo

pentium 530 (3.0g) chip

2 gig corsair xms ddr

western digital sata hd's

6600 gt nvidia vga

ati tv wonder elite

ati hdtv wonder

nvidia "pure video" dvd decoder



However, I just bought a dual core chip (Pentium 830 D) and 845 mobo. I tried to install everything identically to the former setup and my wireless pci card crashes the the system. I tried both netgear and us robotics PCI cards with no luck. Any ideas?


Also, I have bought two microsoft remotes and both seem to have the same issue: the IR blaster does not flash on the emitter end. I can send signals to the PC fine, but no light is emitted to the cable box. The first remote, I took the emitters from my replay tv and plugged those into the IR sensor, and it worked. But that does not work for my latest remote? ANy ideas?

Did you reinstall Window or try to use the existing one?


If you used the existing one, I would save the headache and reinstall Windows.


If you installed a fresh copy and are having the problem, I would recommend trying a different PCI slot if you have not already done so.


A cheap but effective solution would be to get a USB wireless adapter. Afterall, you spent all that money upgrading, what's another $30 or so?
