TV DOES NOT RECEIVE THE SIGNAL FROM REMOTE CONTROL
I HAVE A DIGITAL TV. A YEAR AGO MY REMOTE CONTROL WOULD NOT WORK. NOTHING WORKED - I CHANGED THE BATTERIES, THEN BOUGHT A NEW CONTROL - NOTHING. FINALLY, I WAS TOLD THAT THE LASER RECEIVER IN THE TV DID NOT RECEIVE THE SIGNAL AND THAT I SHOULD BUY SOME CONVERTER BOX TO HOOK TO THE TV AND USE THE REMOTE OF THE BOX TO CHANGE THE CHANNELS. I'VE ASKED A COUPLE OF STORES AND THEY DON'T CARRY WHAT I NEED. HELP!

First of all, please let us know on which OS you are (Win. I suppose)
Second, we are going to try to remove possible issues one by one. I apologize in advance for what could seem a stupid question, but I have seen really really really bad things ...
Lastly, it's highly improbable that the card is slowly dying. It's either working or not.
1) OS ? and version.
1.1) Version of your driver
1.2) double check that you have the correct chipset. Copies and knock off of the Alfa cards are rampants on e-Bay
2) How low is your signal?
3) Are you on a 2.4 or 5 ghz signal (b/g/n?)
4) have you tried to remove the antenna and see if you still get a signal?
4) have you tried with a different antenna?
5) have you tried to change the USB?
Have you cleaned or blown out the ventilation ducts and grills since you have owned it. If you haven't, there is the possiblility that the thermal paste has been baked off the processor and there has been damage done to the motherboard. The laptop will run fine with no battery installed. Get a few cans of compressed air from an office supply store and using short bursts of air, blow out the grills and all the compartments. If there is easy access to the heatsink, most likely that needs to be pulled and cleaned, as well as the processor and new layer of thermal grease applied. Remember though, if it isn't powering up at all, there could be the possiblility that the ac adapter is no longer putting out the correct voltage to power the system up efficiently. Have your power supply tested, to make sure it is putting out the correct voltage under load.
I have a HP Pavilion zv6000 laptop too, and I have the same problem. A year ago, the screen was getting loose and finally it just broke. Won't stand up. I've been propping it up against a wall for a year. I can see what is wrong: my laptop has gotten so hot that the back of the laptop where the hinges are has warped and ruined the hinges. Do you notice that? The split in the seem and the actual bend of the plastic? Anyway, the computer itself works perfectly. I was going to buy new hinges and replace them myself, but it was too much of a hassle, and I needed a new laptop anyway. The hinges are inexpensive. And the laptop isn't TOO difficult to take apart (search for the manual. it's easy to find). I took it apart with my Grandpa, and he's old, and I'm a girl. (okay, sexist, gender...ist.)
I actually received a new laptop as a gift. Luckily.
No solution, other than replacing hinges. I just wanted to let people know I too had the same problem.
This is what you need to do: Connect the s-video from your computer to your tv input. (think you've already done that) Go to display properties on your laptop (right-click Desktop and select Properties) Go to Settings rightclick the blue rectangle, with a number 2 in it and select attach If needed you can change the resolution for the TV. Then click OK Now your computer is configured correctly. Make sure you have selected the correct input on your TV.
