Unhappy TV Tuner in Laptop No Longer Working (but it used to!) in vista

Hey everyone, ive got a TV tuner (brand new) from HP with my laptop. ive used it before just fine, its connected with my cable internet connection and it uses an express slot

for some reason, yesterday i tried to open vista media center and watch TV and i just got this:

"tuner is currently in use by another application or is not working"

and some other stuff.. i restarted, took it out put it back in, tried everything. i still get this error... any ideas

1 did u always have vista?
from that message you most likely have a program u installed or some sort of spyware currently running holding your tv tunner
run msconfig and see whats up

Try re-installing the device (drivers and software) see if that helps the situation.
