Is there anything I can do? iPad iOS 4...|ipad-software-update-server-contacted-unavailable

I set up my ipad2 using my laptop.  Now I got a desktop but it won't recognise my ipad2 (not showing up under device in itune).  I uninstall and reinstall the itune already but still doesn't work.  I reconnect my ipad2 to my laptop (which I use to set it up in the first place) and it has not problem showing up under 'device' in itune.  I was told once that a problem with ipad is that it only work with the computer that it is set up with.  Any idea how I can get my desk top to recognise the ipad2?...|ipad-2-set-laptop-desktop-latest-itune-installed-connect-ipad
