Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I recently purchased an Amazon Echo (2nd generation) which I am very pleased with because of it multi-faceted capabilities.  That said,  I am wondering if I can purchase online a smart power outlet device which can plug into a power outlet and allow non-smart technological equipment to plug into it and be responsive to the Amazon Echo (2nd generation).  For example, I am interested in plugging in a lamp to said device and be able to turn it on/off through voice commands given to the Amazon Echo (2nd generation).  If such a smart plug outlet is commercially available, could someone provide a direct online purchase link?  It will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

            George

This relatively new computer is an HP Pavilion x360 4GB of DDR3L SDRAM (1 DIMM).
Complete Specs:  https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04202035
According to this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4bvIsI4QGEQ, it will accept 16 GB of RAM.
It apparently only has 4GB according to system properties and is running very slow under a Windows 10 64bit OS.
By the looks of the video, we may want to to have a shop put in the memory, but would like to come prepared with memory in hand.
We would like to buy two 8GB chips to give us the entire 16GB that it will take.
Suggestions for good pricing on memory for this particular unit and all the important specifications that are relevant to this unit are greatly appreciated.

I am looking for ideas/software that will migrate both Programs and User settings/Profile from one Workstation to another when upgraded to a new piece of hardware. We do 300-500 a year not including break/fixes. Thoughts on what you use/likes/dislikes.

Thank you!

Dear helpful experts,

Could you please assist regarding below-?
Part of role, we update computer/asset bar-code details in Active Directory to keep track of financial record/cost centre. So as a process we need to open AD, go to default search for Hardware, then able to see hardware but cannot see Attribute Editor for complete detail.
I’d like to add an AD custom tab or Attribute Editor. (Please see attached image).



1.      How to add Attribute Editor Tab as an standard in scenario-1. (Showing in the attached image)
So we can avoid steps A, B and C to search Attributes as shown in scenario 2.
 
2.      If we can add Attribute Editor Tab in scenario 1 then how to include only selected fields instead 50+ of field. i.e. department, department number, description, etc…… shown as 2,3,4,5

Many thankks

My machines respond to Wake On Lan unless the power cycles.
Setting the BIOS power to "Last State" is no help.
So setting the BIOS to Power On at least lets me run a program.
I'm trying to figure out how to tell the difference between a normal button push or WOL
and BIOS Power On resulting from power being restored.

Hi,
I've got 20+ Dell servers at remote locations for clients and I'd like to figure out a way how to monitor hardware events remotely. All the servers are Dell PowerEdge Gen 9 and newer and all have an iDRAC card. Most are running esxi 5.5+ with server 2012 on the VM's. I've got OMSA installed and Support Assistant Enterprise on the servers that are still under warranty. Basically I'd like something like Support Assistant Enterprise that will run on the out of warranty and older hardware. At this point I pretty much just need to know the status of the hard drives, firmware versions of everything and get some alert when something changes. Ideally I'd like a single window where I can monitor everything from. Any advice would be helpful or at least a direction to start looking into.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

We have a HP PageWide Pro 477dw printer which we use for scanning and printing and have no problems with printing word or excel documents.

When we go to print a report from Linkedln using our Windows 10 Pro PC, we get a page printed out which states "PCL XL Error" with "Error: InsufficientMemory".

How do we resolve this problem?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hello,

Is there a way to measure the connection speed of a peripheral/external hard drive.

For example, I read that a USB-2 connection has a speed of ~60 MBps and a USB-3 connection a speed of ~640 MBps. But is there a way to check the exact speed (eg ping the hard drive)?

Thanks

Dell Inspiron 17 5748 replaced damaged screen with new OEM replacement.  Goes blank after Windows 10 boot.   Will work perfectly fine in BIOS setup.   Unable to determine why will not work after windows boot.  I need to use external monitor.   Tried pulling CMOS battery but did not help.

I have a windows 10 PC that I want to remote access with a Chromebook.  I have tried many products to do this with and they all work and have different positives and negatives.  

I like the image quality of the RDP clients.  One of the biggest things missing on all but VNC is the two fingered scrolling using the Chromebook touch pad does not work.  

two questions....
1.  Is there a way to make the two fingered touch pad scrolling work from chrome to windows?  Possibly another rdp client?  
2.  Is there another remote access tool that has this feature besides vnc?

Hello everyone,
 
3 years ago, had gotten an used Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro from Cowboom and was using it very sparingly.
 
Yesterday, as I was working on it, the system turned off by on its own and when I turned on the computer, this is what I see:





Would greatly appreciate thoughts on how we could go about fixing this issue. As far as I can tell, it looks like the SSD is malfunctioning / gone bad.

Will be removing / re-installing the SSD to see if that solves the problem and checking if the SSD would work on a different computer as an external drive.
 
Any tips/insights would be tremendously helpful. Thank you for your time.

screen flickering on multiple computers, this happens to Windows 10 installations, on several different hardware platforms. The screen flickers mostly in Office programs. We notice that this stops when we stop the Configuration Manager client - or disconnect network cable.
SCCM is updated to the latest release

anyone else experiencing this?

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

I have used this webcam before and it worked fine. The program, application, or website, turned the camera on. It's a Windows 7 desktop. When inserted in the front USB port it recognizes the device.

How to turn the camera on manually.
Maybe I wish to take a photo of something and save the image as a file.
The latest failure was trying to get photo of myself for travel via Airbnb. Their program gave a window to allow the camera but it never came on. Microsoft LifeCam HD 3000.

Hi all
We have a number of Android tablets, some of which are misbehaving. I need to be able to save (or send) the system logs (and maybe dmesg as well, if poss) continuously to the removeable SD card, or alternately, to send the logs out to an FTP server. Can someone help me do this please? I will not be able to "root" the devices.
Thanks in advance

I have a power point file and have some you tube videos embedded in this file. The video used to play OK in the last months, however all of the sudden the video doesn't play anymore.

We have tried disabling hardware acceleration, running the file as admin and so far nothing has helped.

We are in MS Office  2016

Hello! I have an SBS 2011 server that uses SBS Fax service to route faxes in and out, delivering inbound to an email user. Worked like a champ for years, and then the ZOOM USB modem that was doing this job died and was replaced with a USB USR 5637. I have removed the drivers from the previous fax modem and installed the drivers for the new unit, and was able to run the fax configuration wizard from the SBS console and two problems occur. The first is the option for "route through email" is grayed out and not selectable. I opted to select store in a folder instead to complete the wizard successfully, and it errors out on Configuring US Robotics v.92.  Manually attempting to start the fax service results in a message that is does start successfully, but immediately stops, and the app log provides these errors 32108 and 1000 (below).  I have also removed and reinstalled the SBS fax service on the server with the same results.  Any thoughts on how to get this service functioning again as soon as possible?  TIA!
