A desktop computer is a personal computer designed for use at a single location due to its size and power requirements, usually by one person. The most common configuration has a case that houses the power supply, motherboard, disk storage (usually one or more hard disk drives and optical disc drives); a keyboard and mouse for input; and computer monitor and printer for output. The case may be oriented horizontally and placed atop a desk or vertically and placed underneath or beside a desk.

Does any know what the maximum size HDD supported by a Dell PowerEdge T310?  I want to move my current drives out of old server (currently a desktop case) into a Dell PowerEdge T310 I'm looking at buying.  I am currently Running Windows Server 2012 OS on it and id setup for a RAID 5 array (currently 4-2TB HDD's and 1-4TB HDD in use on my RAID array), and want to know if the T310 is compatible with running this OS and RAID setup I currently have before I purchase it.  I'm sure that the T310 has reached it's EOL but I'm sure that it still performs well.  

Thanks for any information anyone may provide

A client got a win 10 home PC after I told him I could get a PC for him and if he wanted to get it, be sure it comes with Win 10 Pro and to send me pics when at the store (they have sbs server).

So it's an HP small desktop with i5 processor,  12GB RAM, 1TB hard drive.  He.... wants to 'upgrade' to win 10 Pro, which really means wipe the drive and install pro from scratch, right?

Do you see any issues with getting it up and running on Pro? Not sure the exact model, but if it's running from the factory on Win 10 Home, then it'll run Win 10 Pro just as well?

and yeah, that's the process - wipe and install?

gotta buy:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/windows-10-pro/df77x4d43rkt/48DN

no upgrade path.  anything else out there for less than the $200 is scam / VL / something not legit?

How much time would you say that will take? To get it to a win 10 machine ready to get on the SBS network?  1 hour? 2?

Hi,

I am trying to find the MS office desktop version link. It looks like the only option is to subscribe office 365, is that true?

Although I saw some sites are selling office 2016, not sure if they are safe. thanks

Hello, I have a customer PC which behaves in such an incomprehensible way I had to post it here.

Here's the facts: it's a desktop with Windows 10 and a PCI wifi card.

Wifi used to work, now it suddenly has stopped. It will connect and receive ip and dns through dhcp, but won't even ping the router.

And here, the strange stuff begins: I tried in my office and it worked. Cleaned it up, reset winsock and tcpip, brought it back. Doesn't work.

So I tried with a usb wifi adapter. Same behaviour.

I decided to format and reinstall Windows 10. And here's what totally blew my mind. Now it has the same behaviour in my office too, with the usb wifi adapter (still haven't tried with the pci card). It's a frakking fresh install for criminy's sake!

I honestly don't know what to think.

OK,

Got a new Z440 desktop, only had 16GB of memory so I got  some more which is exactly the same, howvever, the machine is NOT seeing it as quad channel memory and it's running it in single ranks.

I've checked the BIOS and can't find antyhing in there, I've completed a BIOS update in a hope that it'll sort out the memory issue, it did not. I've run CPU-Z on it and taken a solid look at it, Whilst the manufacturer is different the specs of the memory are exactly the same.

The only thing I can think of is HP have prevented people from using any memory other than  their own. Any advice would be great.

Thanks

Hi

In Azure I have added RDS (Remote Desktop Services). I have added users to the new advm (active directory virtual machine). What do I need to do to log into
my main server or vm? This whole process seems overcomplicated.

I am working on a Debian system at a sister company, and have a VPN set up between the 2 sites. I am able to Remote Desktop onto any of their other servers, but no their Debian server. I am able to access the IP address for the Bebian system through a browser on any of their network boxes, but cannot access from outside.

The only way I'm able to access the Debian box is to RDP onto any other server within their system, and then RDP from there to the Debain system. Doing this way though prevents me from sending files as I am unale to SSh or PFTP to the Debian box form my VMWAre testing system's Command Terminal, which I have been using throughout previously.

In the past I found a command that was entered into the Debian terminal through RDP that opened up a port on the box, that since then enabled access, but following a recent server reboot, the connection has once again been lost.

Is there a command that will sort this problem, when entered into the Command Terminal of the debian box whilst RDP'd onto it?

system trey not showing all the way. I have a windows 10 desktop and the recommended resolution is being used but the system trey or task bar at the bottom is falling off the bottom so you can not see the entire task bar. If I select the next resolution down it shows up but my screen is cut short at the top. Is there a way to get this back to default settings or adjust the size? I have tried to grab the bar at the bottom and drag it up but it is not working?

I have a Server 2012 R2 Guest Machine, A Domain Controller that is a guest as well. It is a production environment and has been running well since 2012. Recently we received a new public IP address and had to make some adjustments to the server:

New SSL cert applied after the change.
Made sure no IPv6 is running. with the new router/switch.

Everything is working. httsp://access.somedumbdomain.com/rdweb works, all offices can connect. 5 off site locations can connect.

A vendor needs to update his software for the client, we login and to manage rdweb services though the server manager and we discover the A remote desktop services deployment does not exist in the server pool.

I have googled every error in the error logs, tried ever thing in for the words A remote desktop services deployment does not exist in the server pool.

Help!

How To:  
  1. Create a Desktop or Taskbar icon for the online version of Microsoft Word 365
  2. Make .doc & .docx file types open Word 365 online

Summary
I have lost Word 2010 Starter (free, ad-based version offered on limited PCs & laptops) when I had to rebuild a PC.  One free option is to use the online version of Word in Office 365.  I am using it now, but all my Word files no longer have a default app.

Being able to open a program via icon or double-click on a file is a time-saver.  I'm not sure how to set this up, though, for the online version of Word or Excel.  Or Outlook, for that matter.

Help!

I need someone to help me please in showing me how do I save a page in Foxit PDF reader? I received 2 pages I opened the PDF with Foxit reader free version. The first page was straight . The second page was not. I had to rotate the view to the left in order for me fill it out. I saved it with different name and put it on desktop. When I opened it it was still rotated to the left. How do I fix this? Also when I insert the signature I can see it on the signature line but when I click X to exit I am asked do I want to apply all signatures which I already had applied in the field. Why am I being asked again?

Thank you

is there anyway that I can move a specific favorites folder from Edge or Chrome bookmarks to my Desktop versus exporting it to another browser? I can manage my favorites a lot easier and I can do more things with them if the folder was on my Desktop versus being in the favorites folder Edge or Chrome.

Also where is the default location for Favorites folder in Edge and Chrome?

Hello Experts,

We are trying to create a group policy to restrict users to save data on their desktop. For example when user create a text file on desktop it redirects to network share and delete on the desktop.
We already created a folder redirection policy which copies the file to network share, but it wont delete it on the desktop. Also If we delete on network share it deletes on the machine.
We want a policy to redirect anything saving on the desktop to network share and delete on the user desktop.

Regards
Anche

For several days, one user in the office arrives in the morning to find all his desktop icons missing (Windows 7). A reboot restores the icons. Why is this happening?

More information: All workstations in the office are Active Directory Domain members with redirected Desktops. The A/D server program on the Domain Controller is stopped at 12:00AM daily to do a full system backup, which takes about 1/2 hour, after which the A/D server is restarted. I'm suspecting this is when this user's desktop icons disappear. Oddly, no other users are affected by this problem. Restarting the AD/DC does not cause anyone else's Desktop icons to disappear. There is no apparent reason this started happening, it just started at the end of last week, so probably the last 5 business days.

How do I track this down and fix it?

I need help in simple terms to what these options mean on onedrive.

Under auto save . What does it mean where do you want to save desktop, documents, pictures on this PC ONLY or OneDrive the option when scrolling down? Also on screenshots it says to save them in onedrive. Is that talking about screenshots from cell phone or ones on my PC.

Second question: Under files on demand-what does save space and download files as you use them. What files ???ones that I open on my PC If they are already on my PC why do I need to download them? save space on my PC ??? or is it saying if I open a file on my PC then it will downloaded to OneDrive. Please help clarify these questions. Thank you.

Note: this is a follow-up to another thread posted yesterday and located here:

        Identify desktop PC ports

Hello,

Yesterday I posted images of the front of my computer and shown below are images of the back. If someone could identify the ports labeled by letters (and numbers), as well as which of them can be replaced individually if faulty, I'd appreciate it.

By the way, the panel near the top (labeled x in the first screenshot) appears to be removable. What type of component is that designed for?

Also, I've always been curious about the multiple different-shaped (but mostly rectangle) openings in the video card (see 3rd image). Do they have some purpose?

Thanks

Do anyone know how we can do this directly ?

thank you in advance,

Hello,

Can someone help me identify the types of ports shown in the next few screenshots?

I apologize that the images are so blurry but hopefully with the zoomed-in shots each port (with its icon) will be recognizable to a person familiar with the hardware. If possible, I'm also curious to know which, if any, of the ports can be easily replaced if faulty (ie are any of them built into the tower?). The last image is of the side of the tower in case that's helpful. (I'm sure it's obvious that label g is for the DVD drive and needs no comment.)

Thanks a bunch!
