Add standart repos to Update SLED 11 ?

Bought new HP ProBook 4530s with pre-installed SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11. System has some bugs with software thus I decided to update this programs.

When I launch package manager - I see that no repos are given to system and it can't neither install new application neither update application.
Could you please give me list of default repositories list for this system?

PS I haven't used SUSE before

Short answer; no, I can't. For SLED/SLES (as opposed to openSUSE) you only get access to the repos (perhaps after an initial 1 month evaluation period, or something) if you have paid a subscription. From what you are saying, in effect, you have been sold this ProBook with the implication that HP or the vendor has dealt with this; ie, it is not sold as having an evaluation version of SLED, but the full thing, and with any 'membership' of the 'repo club' dealt with in the purchase price.

In the first instance, therefore, you should check the paperwork with the ProBook, just to check that there isn't any sneaky small print, and get back to the vendor/HP if you think that you haven't got what you paid for.
