Is it a laptop - if so try taking the battery out and connecting it to just the AC power and running it.

Try looking in the BIOS to see if there is a Power Save option.  If there is, disable it.

I am trying to connect my laptop to my tv to watch downloaded movies, i have managed to get my laptops wallpaper/background on the tv screen but nothing else is happening. Any ideas? It is probably something simple i am not doing.

It's the external monitor setting, I had the same problem when I first got the Setanta broadband, my wallpaper would flash
on to the screen but wouldn't play anything either.

sounds like you have a bit of lag in your pc, it might not be a bad idea to do a de-frag and clean up of your machine to see if it makes a difference, and possibly increasing your virtual memory.

not sure how to sort this one, but check your monitor settings, and see if you can extend your desktop!! right click on your desktop, select properties, and go to display settings.

What Can i Do

all i can suggest here is what the rest of the guys have said, and if they don't sort it, as a last resort, you can open up the pc, and reseed the BIOS battery. this may cause you to lose some data and settings so only use it as a last resort.

I have a Desktop Computer with Wireless Router and a Lap-Top which is Wi Fi enabled, do i need to connect anything to the Desktop  to get them to speak to each other and share Broadband etc. Any Advice appreciated. Have Googled the problem but find the explanations jargon heavy and difficult to understand

That's how mine is hooked up, it's a shared network... if that's what you mean by speak to each other.

Pangur, you should have gotten software with the router, which will need to be installed on the laptop first of all. the router will obviously have to be connected to your modem as well (should have said this first).  :-[
you can then connect your pc to the router, and you both machines can use the connection. if you want, you can then set up a sharing network so you can access your files on the laptop from the pc, and vice versa, as well as printers and scanners etc.

That makes no sense at all. What is you fascination with wireless printers, scanners ect.. SP

Pangur does you wireless router connect directly to your Internet(broadband) connection/Phone socket/Cable .....? If so you have a wireless ADSL/Cable router which is little bit different to a wireless router.
Is your Laptop able to access the internet through your wireless router already?
How is your desktop connected to the router? Wireless or through a network cable (ethernet)?

You should not need to install any software either, Windows (if your using it) will have all it need to share connections, communicate with the router already.

well, the router i bought had software, so i suppose it depends on the type of router you have!!
the way i have mine setup is the broadband connection runs directly into my wireless router. my pc and printer are then also connected into the router using standard networking cables.
i then setup a home network, where i could share my files and printer, so they can be accessed from either machine.

It probably just needs cleaned SB. I take it you are talking about the system fan and not the one on the CPU?
