Gog 2816 satellite reciever, cant tune as i dont know the password. how can i reset it?

    • 1 Check the TV and make sure the channel is set to 3 or 4 for the primary TV set, or channel 60 for the UHF (secondary) set, if the receiver is a "dual-mode" device.
    • 2 Check all connections on the back of the receiver. Make sure all cabled connections are tightened and all plugs are securely plugged in.
    • 3 Check for a key card loaded in the card slot on the receiver. If you have a key card, slowly and carefully remove the key card. Leave the card out for at least 30 seconds, and then re-insert the card.
    • 4 Unplug the main power cord from the back of the receiver. Wait at least 30 seconds and then plug the power cord back into the receiver.
    • 5 Press the "Power" button on the front of the receiver to power on the device. Allow the receiver several minutes to acquire a signal and download any additional updates. The receiver is reset.

HP recovery disks don't boot!

Sounds like you need a windows vista operating system disc. The recovery discs set your system back to factory settings like when you first brought it home from the store. But to me, the system is bloated with all the software and trial junk that you don't need. If you can get your hands on a Vista Operating System Disc, then do a clean install from it. Just make sure your Certificate Of Authentication (COA) sticker is readable so that you can activate the vista once you've got it loaded. If you can't get your hands on a system disc, take it to a computer repair shop, I would think you could find one that will load the operating system for $60 or less.

Cannot reset cristal television from the dvd channel

If your remote is working, switch to using the tuner by using the "source" or "input" button on the remote. Usually it will have an input for "tuner" or "tv." If your TV is working, that should do it. If it switches but you don't get any channels, then you should ensure that the signal is good.

I have an acer aspire 3690 and want to connect it to my tv i have bought a s video to rca lead but there is no picture on my tv do i need to change any settings on my laptop ?

can you provide the model number of your TV too please do you have VGA on your TV? (it'll be blue and have 15 holes) s-video to rca hmmm dunno if maybe your setting yourself up to fail there.
(I use a laptop to projector as a TV in my bedroom & my freeview uses the composite with a scart adapter on the end and my laptop uses the VGA and I just switch between the 2 I've NEVER been able to use the s-video on ANY setup I've tried in my home and I work in IT! If someone else has a better experience using s-video then please correct me)
When you use your existing lead and it's connected and everything powered on I HAVE assumed one thing you are then holding the FN key and pressing f5 to tell the laptop to switch screens aren't you? using these keys you can toggle between 1 screen both either or none

Can i watch tv though my laptop

You can watch TV on your laptop, but you need to purchase an USB TV tuner and plug it into the laptop's USB port plus install the TV tuner software.
There are several manufacturers that make these USB TV tuners, I suggest you do a Google search for these devices for the best deals.

Camcoder ,PS3 or DVD player output to Laptop screen

I've had the same problem with two other unrelated HP input products in this area myself so I understand the pain. Media Center is not really well geared for nor is very friendly in the end user component input area. I'm assuming you've already tried playing a video file from your camcorder while setting up the Media Center input settings? Try a different software that will recognize your input card. Ideally, you should use any input software that came with the card itself from the manufacturer. Contact the manufacturer for a link to the original software bundle if you can't find it from their website or you may need to research your own replacement software solution for this product.

HP DV9700-L/side ports- which one will work for second display/TV

I do not know if this is the answer you are looking for, but I know that when I connected my S-video connection to some old crappy big screen TV, I had to set the laptop's second video output to specifically output to S-video. There were 3 or 4 different settings that had to be done. I dont remember the details, all I remember is that the 1. the second video monitor had to be set to the s-video connection. 2. the analog video setting had to be set to PAL or NTSC or whatever they are, I dont know what it is off the top of my head, then there was another setting, I dont remmeber, I think it was the setting to 'clone' the screen so that it just duplicated it. In this case, you might have to set the resolution to somthing smaller that would fit on a standard definition screen.

I have received what looks like to be everything required to get the builtin TV tuner operational. But it wont go. I am in NZ. Can you help me with a list of things to check?

Well, I know from experience, there are 2 things you need for tv tuner cards. the first thing, of course is a driver. the driver tells your computer how top operate the hardware (the card itself). The NEXT part is the APPLICATION. The App gives you the TV buttons and screens and functions to operate the tuner. If you have the driver installed, but no application, you wont be able to operate the card functions (the computer will SEE the card and say its ready, but youd have no access to it). If you have the APP but no driver, then Windows wont even know what the device IS, so it will not be operational. Make sure you have both the DRIVER and APP installed. Once you do, start the app, look for channel search, auto-add the channels, and you should be all set. Good Luck!
