Re: Cannot install ArcadeVGA 5000 on windows 7

The ONE thing that they do not say to do on the instructions on the website is to make sure you PC is updated. I am using Windows 7 and this was the most frustrating thing EVER that was easily avoidable by saying "make sure you have the latest updates, including the newest .NET framework." I don't think they're aware many of us are buying older used PCs, wiping the Operating systems to use as emulators for older arcade games, OR they're not aware that we are doing fresh installs of operating systems and then installing the drivers on a fresh OS. The ONE thing that allowed me to get past the blue screen of death during the installation of the drivers with the whole AMD Catalyst program (another gripe - they should emphasize that the arcade VGA will use this program, because it's confusing as HELL that a company that has NO relation to AMD has an AMD program pop up to install its drivers, and it will not use an actual arcade vga installer or anything) is downloading the chipset drivers for Intel from the DELL website for my PC model and ALSO updating windows with essentially EVERY FRICKIN UPDATE available (minus the language pack things) by going into control panel and checking for updates.

Of course, even after this, It still isn't working, as the DVI output on my card will not send a output to my pc monitor, and will only send signal to the CRT, which sort of defeats the purpose of the ArcadeVGA, as one of the reasons I bought it was to be able to have a regular PC monitor hooked up so that I could actually do things on the PC because the 640x480 resolution that shows up on the CRT is unusable for everything except emulation. I just bought an extra long HDMI cable and I'm going to see if the HDMI out on the card even works on my TV... if it doesn't, I'm starting to wonder if the card itself is faulty... keep checking my thread for updates on this continuing saga of insane frustration.
