Hello Jun It's great to have the windows 8 version and the error regarding to tuner card you are getting may be due to some missing of files from the application.
 
It may be also due to the crash error of the operating system and also try by formatting the operating system by installing a fresh and original copy so that it might work properly.
 
Even the problem is not resolved the problem might be in motherboard and its better to install drivers once again so that there is a minor chance that it might work properly.
 
Now its definitely works if not download the specific drivers that are required for completing the tuner installation to make it as successful.
 
Thank you.
