Get on a computer. Go to www.netflix.com/activate. Log in with the Email and password you used when you set up your Netflix account. And activate using your code.

Something I found with a search:

Here are some troubleshooting steps that may help.
- First is to do a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then try booting it up again.
- If it will not work, re-seat the RAM, remove them all for couple of seconds then put them back in making sure everything is seated properly into each RAM slot.
- Next is to try hooking it up to an external monitor and see if you get any display from it. If it will not produce any display disconnect the ribbon cable that connects the built-in display to the motherboard then try it again.
- If all these will not work the problem is the motherboard itself.

You might download and install the trial version and go from there.. I imagine it will ask for your authentication code or direct you to the permanent version:

You can take the card out (it is under one of the covers on the bottom of the computer) and see what it is. Go to that manufacturers web site to download the drivers, install them, and walla, you are in business again.

Please rate this advice.

If your TV does not have Netflix pre-installed you can (only on some TV's) install the app from the internet. If you cannot install Netflix on the TV then you can use something like the Amazon Fire Stick plugged into one of the HDMI ports to watch internet based content such as Netflix.

If you go into your owner manual, you will find a section on adding applications (apps). You need to add the Netflix app to your smart TV. Then you can click on the add and on the first run, add your user name and password. It should work fine for you then.
Good luck.
