I assume that you are trying to get a wireless web connection, if so you are probably running into security. You must match the site's security protocol to transfer information.

Need a solution to provide wireless access for an older HP Pavilion 760N


Dieter:

You can buy a wireless receiver at most computer stores. The receiver plugs into a USB port and receives the signal from your router. If you are hoping to connect to WiFi hotspots, be careful and make sure that you have good security software!

I have a dell studio 540 desktop, I need to restore to factory settings but my monitor will not stay open. It opens for a few seconds then immediately goes into power saver mode and turns off, how can


I see two things here, but need clarification;

1) Monitor goes to Power Saver Mode, then turns -> OFF?

Sure that monitor didn't go into Standby Mode?

2) Why are you performing a restore back to factory settings?
Pick up a virus?

Primer;
The monitor receives a signal. A video signal. The video signal comes from the computer.

If the monitor is NOT receiving a video signal, then the monitor will state No Signal.
This is for older monitors.

New monitors do not state No Signal anymore.
It's Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode.

If the monitor is truly OFF, the Power On button will Not be lit up.
Or the Power On LED light on the monitor.

Monitor power on LED is lit, or Power On button is lit?

Monitor is not receiving a video signal;

Use a monitor cable from a KNOWN to be working monitor, for a temporary test.
OR,
Use a Known to be working monitor, and it's monitor cable.

Need to find out if monitor cable is good.

Monitor cable checks out good?

Then problem is computer.

The two leading issues with desktop computer failure, is;

1) Computer is dirty inside
2) Power Supply inside computer is bad.

Please post back in a Comment.

Im trying to set up my acer Z5700 to watch tv with built in freeview, but i get this message everytime. windows media is unable to determine a tv signal configuration, and says make sure a live tv signal...


Hi.

The all-in-one desktop computer supports digital and analog signals. You will need a standard aerial for this (one that is mounted on your roof or the side of your building).
If you are trying a cable which receives cable TV then that will not work.

No instructions! do i need a lead to detect tv signals?


By "TV" Signals, do you mean video signals? If so, the WIndows video player does a good job of playing most varieties. If you mean off air or cable TV signals, you'll need a receiver. Look at the Elgato, or similar brands. They plug into a USB port and are capable of receiving analog and/or HD ATSC signals, or cable signals. Keep in mind that digital cable signals are generally a mess to identify and sort out because they are on different digital channels and subchannels. You may need a digital to analog converter in front of your Elgato to keep from going nuts trying to fighure out where everything is.

Yah i have a dynex tv and a Asus desktop comp and my tv says no signal when i plug it in i dont know what the problem is


Is the dynex tv unit installed inside the ASUS desktop computer?
The TV receiver needs an antenna/aerial connected to the TV receiver to receive TV signals, without it you will get no or weak signal.
Have you connected an antenna/aerial to the Dynex TV unit?

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.
