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


Instructions
    • 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.

Satellite a75-s209: error loading os


The OS installation may be corrupt. Remove all USB drives and discs from CD and try again.

You will need to run a repair or possibly re-install Windows (onto itself).

I wiped clean my toshiba satellite pro p300 and tried to load operating system ,screen say's press enter to continue loading, when i press enter screen shows cannot find hard drive etc etc can anyone...


If you insert your Vista or Win7 disc into the DVD drive and boot form that, make sure that the BIOS is set to recognise the hard disc. The OS disc will do the rest. If it cannot find the hard disc, maybe the hard disc is faulty.
When you are successful, go to toshiba.com and download the latest drivers and firmware for the BIOS.
Hope that helps.

Have a program to down load,when i insert disc nothing shows up o


Your disc drive then doesn't have the option for an automatic startup enabled when a disc is inserted. There are a few other ways then to make it "go." If you are using a windows operating system, click on start then on run. In the box that pops up type D: and hit enter. That will start up your disc. You can also select from the start menu, "my computer" and from that page select D: as well.

Cd/dvd drive will not read or load discs


POSSIBLE solution... (don't shoot the messenger on this one, lol!)

I'm sure you have tried, but have you cleaned your optics lately?

Using a Q-tip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol, and GENTLY rotate the swab across the lens, rotating it in the opposite direction you are wiping. This should "lift" any dust or grime from the lens. I would also clean the tray with a soft lint-free cloth (using an air-can just moves the dirt around, doesn't solve the problem)

Hope this helps!

Connect to the internet using an RJ cable (looks like a fat phone cord) and go to this website to Download the drivers to your laptop, then restart. you should be back up.

DVD issue


I believe you're looking in the wrong place. The disc drive in a laptop accepts the same size discs as a disc drive in a desktop. There is a small button you push on the disc drive and the drive slides out. On laptops the drive doesn't slide completely out like on desktops, it will pop out about an inch then you will need to pull it out the rest of the way to get the disc inserted.
