For a laptop (or any computer) to receive signals from a satellite you must add a receiver card. This could be external (USB interface) or internal (PCMCIA for a laptop, PCI for a regular PC). The receiver card has to be fed signals from a satellite antenna or a satellite dish with amplifier converter, known as an LNB. You do not say what signal you want from the satellite. You can watch TV or download data using a satellite receiver card, for this you will need a subscription with a satellite ADSL provider, who will also offer you the card and the software.

No. Satellite dishes don't emit anything. They just receive the signals from the satellites.

Satellite TV Providers transmits the signals through their satellite dish converting it first from digital signals to analog signals. These signals which were converted will be transmitted to the satellite. The satellite will then transmit the analog signals per request of the satellite dish connected to the receiver of the subscriber. Once signals are received, it will be converted back to digital signals which can be read by the receiver and be displayed to the television.

GPS receiver will be located at the centre of the satellite zones.....It will be synchronized with all satellites....Hence it can receive signals from any one of the satellite at a time....Remaining signals which are transmitted from other satellites are ignored..

Some TV receivers, such as DirecTV and Dish Network, do receive signals beamed from satellites. If you see a dish-shaped antenna pointed up, that's a location that uses satellite TV. Even if your system does not receive direct satellite signals, many of the programs that you watch are most likely transmitted via satellite at some point in getting the program to you.

A geo-stationary satellite is 35,560 km above the equator. If you're sitting at the north pole looking at that satellite, you're looking 8.6 degrees below your horizon. That's a tough direction to receive satellite signals from.
