WMC PC and TV no longer communcating by remote

\015 One day, the WMC is working fine. The next, not so much. After using it, I used the remote's PC power button to turn the TV display off, and then I turned the TV off, like always.The next day, I turn on the TV, press the PC power button, which usually causes the WMC to display on the screen, but nothing happens.The remote is apparently not communicating with the PC. However, it still communicates with the TV itself and with the sound receiver, as the volume buttons still work and the TV will turn on and off. So the problem is only with the remote and its connection to the PC.I restarted. I checked the cord that runs from the PC's USB port to theTV screen, and that is secure. The red light on the IR receiver lightsup when I press any button on the remote. The only problem is that the remote will not tell the PC to display. The PC will shut down and restart just fine.Any suggestions?\015

New Computer We had to buy a new computer. We purchased an Acer w/Windows Vista. Now we have 30 are so learning games we can no longer play. Am I loading them wrong or are we out of luck?

My Creative I-Trigue L3800 speakers have stopped working. The system receives power (the volume control lights up) but I am no longer getting any sound. I fear something may have blown but not sure what. I have had a look inside, circuit board doesn't appear damaged. There is one user-replacable anti-surge fuse which I could be the problem (a T6.3A 250V glass fuse), but the element is not broken and the glass is still clear which would suggest it is okay. Any other ideas?! Thanks.
