I believe techman is right about it not working with your laptop.  However, you don't need to contact your computer's manufacturer for information on a remote that will work.

Check out this blog entry:

Reviews what looks to be a very nice wireless remote that works with any laptop.

Hope that helps,

No, you cannot use this remote I'm afraid because if you tried to do a manual search with the remote to control something, and it does not work, the code is not in the remote. You cannot make a remote learn a code unless it is a learning type remote. When you do a search with a remote, all your doing is calling up all of the reprogrammed codes already in the remote. As to other media remotes for your computer, you will need to contact the manufacture of the computer. Good Luck

Is the ga759wjsa remote control compatible with the yamaha 657 reciver

You can check it with Yamaha codes. Can't say; whether it has a code to your device. If not, you can do a code search procedure.
Hope the linked sites here will help you.

We have just inherited a Yamaha RV-X592 Audio Receiver and have tried all the remote codes listed with the universal remote that we purchased. I have found two listed codes that turn the reciver off, but...

You need a learning remote or a "Logitech Harmony" or a "Universal Remote Control" (Brand name) Yamaha uses "Discrete Power Commands"
You will not find those in any remote under $70 or $80.00
If you don't want to spend the money, program the Yamaha's Remote to control your devices. It will control all features and functions, it will just take some time to program. Hope this helps

Yamaha RX-V630 Is not responding to the remote control unit

Replace the remote control with a universal remote (e.g. Logitech). It is more advanced and very user friendly with a help function if anything doesn't work.
Just follow the instructions in the unit's manual.
If you drop it; be sure to replace the batteries correctly.
Keep good batteries in it and enjoy the convenience of only one remote.
If still in trouble; just visit your local Yamaha dealer for help.
