Hello - I'm trying to figure out how to override CSS to make an input box larger.

I downloaded code from github for an ng2 completer (that provides typeahead functionality).

I'm trying to make the input box tied to the <ng2-completer> larger and am not having a lot of luck.

I'm seeing some options on-line on items to try...but many of them seem to be depreciated. I do not want to spend time trying to learn something that is being depreciated...so thought I would see if someone could provide some guidance on which method to pursue.

Some sites seem to say that specifying a css style in the components .css file...starting wit with ":host" could do the trick...but I tried that and it did not work.
Css entry:
:host .completerWidth {
  width: 650px;

used in HTML by:
<ng2-completer class="completerWidth"
...other completer settings...
closing >

That does not work...works on a regular input box...but not the ng-completer.

Two other items I have tried...

I tried specifying styling in the global css file and using it in the component with the ngcompleter...no luck.

I have also tried viewing the underlying code of the ng completer and determining where the width is specified so I can change it...and have not been able to pinpoint the correct place.

Any tips you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Five years ago I purchased Kingston server RAM with the following specs:

Kingston ValueRAM 16GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 Server Memory (Intel Validated ) Model KVR16R11D4/16I

I understand that this RAM is no longer being made and it is now becoming increasingly difficult to find this RAM.

What model of Kingston RAM has replaced this model of memory and will be fully compatible within an Intel S2600cp server system board that already contains 8 sticks of this RAM?

I need to purchase 8 more sticks of this RAM that will be used on the same Intel S2600cp server system board and I need to make sure that both types of RAM are fully compatible and work without any problems for a Server 2016 Data Center OS that will be running on this server system board.
Where can I purchase the following RAM from?

I am shopping around and am trying to find the lowest price for buying this RAM

Kingston ValueRAM 16GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 Server Memory (Intel Validated ) Model KVR16R11D4/16I
Please provide me with the Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) URL address for an Intel S2600cp server board.
I'm looking for a high quality PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports that will be fully compatible with an Intel S2600cp server board running Server 2016 DataCenter.

I had previously been running Server 2012 & then Server 2012 R2 on this Intel S2600cp server board (for five years) with a low quality PCI Express USB 3 card and there were no problems.

However, once I installed Server 2016 the Server OS would always bluescreen until I pulled out this low quality PCI Express USB 3 card. Without this card installed Server 2016 runs fine.

I still need to have a PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports connected to this server and need to be sure it is on this server boards Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) and that it won't cause any issues or bluescreens.

Please provide me with a list of PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports that will do this.
As a technician in some cases I need to access a hard drive externally, so I am looking for a USB Hard Drive Docking Station. there is lot of them on the market but looking for one that has the best capabilities of reading (even troubled hard drives to the best possible), also Dual-Bay with Offline Clone [reliable]. and if available (not sure if there is) from a larger size drive to a smaller size [as long the date is less than the target drive].

Any recommendations from experience?
The place I park in office is about 200-300m from where I seat:
I can't see the car as blocked by walls.

My car is parked along the street which can get vandalised (scratched, etc):
I wanted to be able to view my car from my office PC/laptop (or at least from
my iphone) remotely : the street is a straight one & if I sit in the car, I could see
if someone is approaching (even >100m away).

Anyone has any solution to this?  I don't want a recorded video as it's too late
& the vandal would have taken place.  I wanted a camera/device which will make
it like I'm viewing from within the car (but I'm viewing from my office seat).

Feel free to show me any eBay/Amazon links of the items you recommend.
Not something more than US$300 ideally.

I have an iPhone 4 and an iPhone 6: perhaps one of them can be mounted in
the car (with a low-cost 4G data plan of US$20/month for 20GB data)?  If it's
something that don't need any data plan, will be better but I'm Ok to get one
Does anyone have the front panel header pinout for a Primergy Econel 200 s2?

I'm a Fujitsu Certified Engineer and I can't find one anywhere.

I'm recasing an old Econel motherboard and non of the documentation details the pinout.
I know that PCIE 3.0 cards will work in a 2.0 slot, but my question is which GPU will outperform the 2.0 specs, such that any higher-end GPU would be a waste.  I just upgraded to a GTX 970 and my score on the Passmark GPU rating maxed out at 7,500 passmarks, while the 970 scores an average of 8,566 on the passmark website (which I'm assuming is because it's 2.0.

Take a look: https://www.videocardbenchmark.net/video_lookup.php?gpu=GeForce+GTX+970&id=2954

When I shot down my computer (or restart) I always get this error message:
Screenshotand the address is the same.

1) Can I rest assure that there IS a faulty memory card?
    IF SO: Is there any smart way to find out which of the 4, or is it just to take out on-at-the-time and see what happens.

2) Can it be something else that just LOOKS like a hard error?

Thanx for helping.

Ever since my latest Windows 10 upgrade, I have been getting this error message on startup. Apparently, it's an obsolete Logitech Download Assistant. I no longer have any Logitech components on my computer.  It doesn't seem to interfere with anything, but it is a nuisance and I would like to be rid of it. I've done everything I could find on the internet, to no avail:

1. There is no LogiDA in Task Manager.
2. There is no registry entry (I could find, anyway) for Logitech.

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much.

I have this password-protected .mdb database. There is a table I need to copy into a different non-protected mdb database. I need to perform this task using Borland Delphi 7 ADO components. help?
I have a AMD FX 9590 on a gigabyte 990FXA-UD3 R5 motherboard running Windows 10 pro and it keeps freezing on me when I check the event log there are loads of corrected hardware errors processor core events and I cant figure out how to resolve them. The machine is only 6 months old. The bios is updated I never over clock it or mess with the bios in any way and my power supply is a 1000 watt corsair

I also have a full tower thermaltake case with a liquid thermaltake cpu unit and 4 large fans but home very dusty and so it runs hot
PLEASE somebody help!! I have read that it could be a voltage issue but don't have a clue what to do
I have use other db components in delphi, but I am having a particular issue using firedac.
Using Delphi10 Seattle, Sql Server 2012.
I have a firedac table pointing to a dataset.
that dataset has 3 fields.

reg_id (integer)
id_css(varchar 8)
reg_value (varchar(250))

i have this table joined to another table using masterdetail, on the reg_ID
a particular record exists in the data set, and is shown in this query:

select * from dbregval where id_css = 'PSI99'
order by reg_id
(see pic1)
regID = 128000.
id_css = psi99
value string = '1'

in the program, I set the filter options to FOCaseInsensitve, foNoPartial
I have set this both at the component level and in code, before the table is opened.

when reg_id is 128006, a records is found (because id_CSS in db is PSI99)
(see file 128006.jpg)
however, when reg_id is 128000, no record is returned in firedac
(dmCommon.tblUserReg.isEmpty is returning true)
(see file 128000.jpg)
This is the sql as reported by firedac monitor, when I refresh the table:

FROM dbo.dbRegVal A
WHERE (A.reg_id = :reg_id) AND
(((A.reg_id = :FD__WN_reg_id) AND (A.id_css < :FD__WN_id_css)) OR ((A.reg_id < :FD__WN_reg_id))) AND
(id_css = 'PSI99')
ORDER BY A.reg_id DESC, A.id_css DESC

so, the question is : how do I use case insensitive filters, using firedac?
and why is this not working?  I'm new to firedac?
any idea what it is that I am …
I have erratic mouse movement and keyboard issues from these external components when used through the dock via the USB ports. I have an E-Port Plus II dock.  If I leave the laptop slightly open the issues go away. If i undock the mouse stays stuck on the right moving erratically and a new mouse appears. Also a few faint circle hover spots. All drivers, Bios and even monitor software updated, not malware or adware. Trackpad even replaced. It happens in Safe mode also and even with a new profile.  W10 64bit. Please advise.

I just got a new (to me) laptop and I love it so far, however, I had to buy it in a hurry and didn't have much of a choice in the model or components. It's a refurbished Dell Precision M6600, and luckily for me, just about everything is upgradable. Right now I'm focusing on graphics because, and you'll probably laugh at this: I'm stuck with Intel 3000. It originally had something better, but the place I bought it from said that the card was damaged and so they had to remove it. I literally can't do anything with this right now. Anyway, my current specs are:

OS: Win 10 Pro
CPU: i7-2860QM
RAM: 24 GB
Graphics:.....intel 3000

So I've been doing my research, and it seems my best bet is either Nvidia GTX 680m or Quadro K5000M, but I was wondering if there was anything newer that would be compatible? It helps me meet the minimum requirements for most newer games, but nowhere near the recommended specs. Is there anything better I can use with my model?
Does anyone know of a company that would build a custom computer and ship it.

DELL & HP can't customize to the needs.

it's a very specific computer.
