Have checked to see if there is a firmware update? You should be able to find out on HP's website or alternatively on the website of the DVD/R's manufacturer.

I have a hp pavilion a1140n and i cant set up wireless internet in my house what do i do


To have wireless internet you would need a (cable or DSL modem depending upon your ISP. A wireless router (doesn't matter which brand) Also for a desktop computer you will need to buy and install a wireless NIC (network interface card) as desktops almost never come with one, only a hardwired NIC (cabled)

My hp pavilion a1140n has 4G RAM installed but only shows 3.11G my copmuter, properties. I've tried different orders of installation/configuration of cards and I get 2G, 3G, 3.11G. Anyone know why?


The system probably uses some of the ram for the onboard video/on board sound...also known as shared memory. If you go to the BIOS setup..you should be able to see what the total memory is and what shares this memory

DVD burnner will not burn data files


If you stick an audio CD in the drive will it play? If so then the OS can read the drive, if not the drive could be dirty or just defective. Also, Windows XP will not burn DVDs natively, I recommend downloading this software http://cdburnerxp.se/.

Philips SCB5265 DVD/CDRW drive only reads CDs but not DVDs


Take a can of air and blow it on the laser then try to see if it will read both cd's and dvd's. If it doesn't read one or the other then the dvd-rw would need to be replaced.
