Have an HP s3120n. Part the the attraction was the TV tuner card. The TV tuner worked for about 2 months, it was great to be able to pull up live TV and surf the internet at the same time. But now every time I go to the windows media center and select Live TV, I get a TV Tuner not installed error. I have not opened the case or installed any new hardware, so I'm not sure why it would have all of the sudden stop working.

If are talking about the Express Card slot into which the ExpressCard TVTuners are installed, it should be located on the Left side of the Notebook.
Please go through page number 18 of 266 in the Manual of the Notebook which is available through the link below which shows you the exact location of the Slot :
By the way, HP no more sells the ExpressCardTV Tuner Cardsin HP Shopping.
Only USB TV Tuner Cards are available from HP.
However, you should be able to find Express Card TV Tuner Cards from other Manufacturers.
You will have to install each tv turner software not different folder in the program files folder.
During the installation of the drivers and software you will be prompted with the directory where the software will be installed, on this page you should select say for eg:
for the first tv turner card C:\program files\ hp tv turner
for the second tv turner card say c:\program files \hp tv turner 2
this should be done for every directory mentioned during the installation.
other wise both the card will try to use the same driver and software files, there will be a clash, thus one one tv turner card will be viewed.
This sounds like a poor put together pc.
If the DVD drive does not eject then either the dvd is faulty or the IDE cable and/or IDE1 connector on motherboard is not installed, try ejecting through my computer(right click on drive then Eject), if this works the button is faulty.
The same goes for the TV Tuner card, again possibly a corrupt or non installed driver, try re installing mother board drivers and card drivers.
This really needs to be returned as the pc is not fit for it's use.
