Yesterday i turned on my comp and i got a win protection error:

"error initializing device BT848, windows protection error. you need to re-start your computer."

Now, i didnt need to restart i needed to format, and that dont make me happy :(, i mean my comp was going fine the day before now i boot and i get that!

Anyways now i have formatted, it seems to be going ok but i dont wanna get this error again. I think its a driver problem or somthing. when i search the net for bt848 i get a load of web cam stuff, and i havnt had my cam installed for that past year.

Can anyone tell me wtf BT848 is and how i can stop this from happening again.

Thanks in advance....

BT848 is a Conexant chipset for TV tuner cards (Hauppauge, Aimslab, etc.). If you have a TV tuner card, that's most likely your problem.

I suggest you upgrade to Windows 2000, if you haven't, and look for some better drivers.
