Recordings cut off earlr

First of all is this a problem with a laptop? Probably not, which program are you using? Are you recording a show on TV? This is a very vague question, if you could call it a question.

How can i get free serial number?

I don't know. All serial numbers that are in use are recorded and stand the risk of the programme crashing as the manufacturer will see more than one machine is using it.
It is safer to purchase a serial key.

How do I connect my acer 3680 to a tv easily for both audio and video transfer.

The easiest way, in my view, is to purchase a TV Dongle. You then will be able to view, record and edit TV programmes and burn them to disc if you so desire.
The TV Dongles are available from ebay and most good electronics outlets from £12.00 including software.
Hope this helps.

I don't know if my laptop has a mic, please help! :(

Generally laptops from 1990-2005 had speakers that functioned as a microphone. Later laptops had a microphone port. Easy way to tell is look on the sides of your laptop, and by your headphone jack will be another port- that would be your microphone port. If you do not, go to accessories and pull up the sound recorder- if you see a sound response when you hit record and talk at your system, your laptop speakers are acting as a microphone.

Are you in the UK?

1 The easiest thing to do is to record it using a freeview box onto either a video or other recorder.

2 If that's not possible try listen again if on bbc.

3 It's difficult to record directly onto a pc without a tv capture card (and essentially doing 1 above) when you can set a timer to do it automatically.

4 if you don't have that you can connect the headphone output to the microphone input and use the Windows Sound Recorder to then recod the outpu
