Re: hp z558

This sounds like a poor put together pc. If the DVD drive does not eject then either the dvd is faulty or the IDE cable and/or IDE1 connector on motherboard is not installed, try ejecting through my computer(right click on drive then Eject), if this works the button is faulty. The same goes for the TV Tuner card, again possibly a corrupt or non installed driver, try re installing mother board drivers and card drivers. This really needs to be returned as the pc is not fit for it's use.

HP pc with built-in tv tuner

Have 9, 5 and 13 turned entirely digital as yet, so as to leave you without their signal?

From what you say, the tv tuner in your HP receives analog signals better than or instead of digital signals the stations you can receive may be analog while 9, 5, and 13 may have dispensed with their analog transmitters.

They don't have to until June, since the changeover was delayed from the original February cutoff date by Act of Congress. It is actually easier to receive a digital signal than an equally powered analog equivalent so the fact that your system worked so well with analog signals bodes well for the efficiency of your indoor antenna arrangement, though you may have to replace the possibly analog receiver in your pc with a usb digital thumbdrive like model to continue after the changeover is final.

Here's a tip...if the receiver in your pc resembles a square aluminum tin can, mounted on a PCI card in one of your slots, it is very likely analog and not digital.

Usually these receivers (or actually TUNERS) are heavily sheilded while digital receivers do not require the same amount of sheilding to avoid interference with other components, which is the concept of the big square tin can, that a digital tuner does not require.

No Picture or sound

Try to open the cover of the computer, remove the video card and memory on the PCI slot try to clean that using a brush, replug in as before then check the computer again.

Dell Dimension 3000, ATI tuner issues

I have an older ATI turner as well and the older cards do not work too well with Windows Xp or Vista. You may be able to find a driver that works by performing a Google search for it, otherwise the cards are very inexpensive right now and you can pick up a new one, probably with HD, for less than $100.

Tv tuner card in a hp m7434n

The white cable bundles (there are several) are for the front USB, Firewire, Analog Video and Audio cabling - none of what are required for your HDTV Tuner. The connections on the front of the HP Media Center allow for analog input (yellow, red and white RCA connectors) and some of the white wire bundles are for analog input (not on all HP PCs). Hope this helps...

The complete solution to this fault (Acer 5535 keeps crashing under vista) is to use Windows XP instead of Vista. Set up a Dual Boot so you can CHOOSE to load XP or Vista each time you turn on the laptop. I've put XP on my 5535 and it's SO much faster and seems perfectly stable now - no crashing at all.

A full video showing how to do this is here:
Once you've done this you won't have any problems with the laptop anymore.
This is a perfect solution to the crashing problem!

AVerMedia A306 TV Tuner Mini-Card

I think some computer store have a policy that they only change the items with included in there policy limitation. For example, if you need to return the item for refund. you need to return the item within 3 days after 3 days they charge you with 5% less on the amount of the item. and sometime for the defected item they only change it if the item is not more than 1 month only. Your computer bought 3 month already that's why they only received that but they send the item to the supplier for repair if repairable but if the item is totally defected that's the time that the supplier change the item. I hope my solution help you to understand the situation you have now.
