Recently the Initial Set up window began coming onto the screen. I went through the set up process, but after going through the auto set-up process, the Initial setup window repeatedly comes back. I have reset the TV to factory setup, unplugged the set for a period of time, always going through the initial setup program, but it seems to return on a regular basis. Was wondering if this might be an indication that a service call is needed, a problem someone else has experienced, or something more serious. Thanks for a response.
I am having this same problem. It seemed to clear up on its own at first, but it has since returned. It seems to occur most often after the TV has been on for a couple of hours. I contacted Sony Tech cupport and they recommend having the set serviced. I haven't yet, since it seemed to "fix itself," but now that the issue has resurfaced I'm likely to take it in unless someone has a suggestion as to what is causing it, and how to resolve it.

I understand your concern, these systems are daunting.
Open the box plug it in hit the start button and first screen is usually pick a language.
These new Windows OS are very user friendly and think it will guide you thru the process of getting started and connecting to the internet.
Depending where you purchased the PC many stores have help service at their locations.
Always maintain a secure physical backup(removable drive) for your priceless photos, music and documents. When these systems crash it is a train wreck trying to recover lost documents. Protect your personal information CC and the like.
If you have a second computer near by I would search for answers to questions as I go.(Microsoft websites are very helpful)
Updating to 10 early in the process is probably a good idea.
Saying "no" more than yes when it asks for more information.
Recently having to replace my tried and true XP has turned out to be a delight. In the whole process just plugged in the new and loaded up the programs that I used the most. I still keep the old XP running and have connected the two together to share the files to make it a little easier in the transition.
To the best of my knowledge no Canon models enable putting time and/or date directly onto images. However, you can do it in Zoom Browser - one of the software programs that comes with the camera. Process. 1. Open an image you want to print out or save with date/time printed . 2. Click on Edit > Insert Text 3. In the drop down window move the cursor (in the form of a cross) to where you want the date/time printed and left click. 4. Click the butoon marked Import Shooting Date/Time - on the right of the window. The date and time will be printed on the image immediately in a white border the size of which you can adjust. NB All digital cameras store a great deal of information with the image at the time it is shot. This is known as EXIF data/file and it is the date and time recorded here that will go onto your image i.e. the actual time and date it was taken.
How old is the disc drive? If it's older than 1 1/2, swap in a fresh one (and/or a hybrid SSD) and install anew from USB Flash Drive, an external drive on a powered hub, or your old drive in a USB2 drive carrier.
try F2 you didnt say whether it was set in the bios or in the initial configuration pages. However a F9 whilst booting takes you to restore the factory settings(every other boot) goto restore factory settings--press "E"-- choose restore image--press "B"-- then try to reconfigure the first few pages of the initialising programs,date,time,location etc.
First try to Boot to Last Known Good Configuration.. do this by pressing F8 upon bootup...look at the prompt screen for the option mentioned OR
Attempt to boot up in Safe Mode....
Do This by pressing F8 Upon bootup, it will take you to a black Safe Mode Options screen... once there choose the first option.. boot into Safe Mode Only.. If you are able to boot into windows that way,, you can then check for problems... Like checking the device manager for errors, Check the Status of your hard drive.. etc.
If you open the Radeon software utility, in the advanced screen settings you should be able to set "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" to on for the TV screen.
Then all you have to do is open your video player software and drag its window across to the tv, then maximise it.
If you are having trouble doing this, some video player programs, especially dvd players playing dvds will not show the picture on the tv. If you want to watch .avi files then the best free player around at the minute is DivxPlayer - go to http://www.divx.com to download.
Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)
