Click Start -> Run and type DXDIAG, and look through the tabs to see
what it says; it should report all good.  Check the video tab,
especially, and try the Test buttons.

On my card, which is an ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 8500 (combination
video card and capture card), a wire plugs into the sound card to
provide sound, and in the configuration, I select the DirectShow video
capture device, audio device, and video input.

Check what version of DriectX you have, which is mentioned on the
first page; might need a newer version in order to get overlay
support to make the capture app happy. Latest version is 8.1.

Good advice is like good paint- it only works if applied.
