A laptop or notebook is a portable personal computer with a clamshell form factor, suitable for mobile use. Although originally there was a distinction between laptops and notebooks, the former being bigger and heavier than the latter, there is often no longer any difference. Laptops are commonly used in a variety of settings, such as at work, in education, and for personal multimedia. A laptop combines the components, inputs, outputs and capabilities of a desktop computer, including the display screen, speakers, a keyboard, and pointing devices (such as a touchpad or trackpad) into a single unit. The device can be powered either from a rechargeable battery or by mains electricity from an AC adapter.

We have 4 new Dell G7 15 7588 laptops that were upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Pro that are connected to the companies domain and connected to the wlan. The users are experiencing issues logging into the domain, where approximately 9 out of 10 times state that the password is incorrect. We have verified that the password is correct when being entered and have removed the laptops from the domain and rejoined them but the issue persists.

The laptops do not have issues logging in when hard wired into the network and other laptops connected to the wireless network are not experiencing issues. Also, Active Directory is not referencing any failed login attempts for the users trying to login to the laptops on the wireless network.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Win 10 HP laptop
Computer boots to home screen, freezes midway through icons loading every time
Disabled every program not essential to startup via Task Manager in Safe Mode
Attempted to disable non-essential 'Background Programs' through Safe Mode,but received the critical "BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO" error during the process and had to shut down
Laptop has a very intermittent history of not recognizing it's HD (Boot Device Not Found  Please install operating system on Hard Disk (3F0)) but that doesn't seem to be contributing (though I may certainly be wrong about that)
Unable to cause anything to work once freeze occurs, though cursor remains available to move about. Cannot highlight anything, either
If screen is left on for several hours, the icons will eventually load, but still no action or functions can be performed on/with them
Automatic Repair can't repair /Restore points inaccessible this time although they previously worked for earlier issues/Don't have system image/disc/USB to fix/clean chkdsk results

I have a new HP Omen laptop that I just installed a new 1 TB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD hard drive.
The laptop came with a 128 GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD  (which I swapped out) and a 1 TB 7200 RPM SATA HDD which I left alone.

I am a bit of a novice on this so I am confused with what to do next.  Windows does not see the bigger drive and so it is all shown in Computer Managment as 'unallocated space'.

It seems to me on laptops where i had done something similar in the past I was just able to right click the main area, select 'extend' and follow the prompts.

However, extend is greyed-out when I try that?   Help!

I am planning to buy a new laptop. I want to do high frequency, low latency, high-performance, multithreaded, L1/L2 cache development using Java/j2ee technologies like jHipster, Spring, Spring Boot, JMS, JDBC, Angular, React and more. Apart from traditional backend development, I will be developing web services as well microservices. I will be using Eclipse, STS or IntelliJ as Java IDE. I may also do C++ programming from time to time and will install some tool for that. There will be Android and iOS development as well and I will be installing necessary tools. I will be using many open source tools from Apache as well. I will be installing Oracle, MS SQL, MySQL and few NO SQL databases like MongoDB also. Also, I will use CI/CD pipelining using git, Jenkins, docker, kubernetes etc. I will be having Linux as a virtual machine also. I will also be using MS Office a lot and chrome browser. There will be some paid antivirus running all the time. There will be a lot of things open at the same time.

I want a minimum powerful configuration which will allow me to do smooth development and testing. My current Lenovo machine, with 4GB RAM, i3 Processor and Windows 8 is giving me a frustrating time. Can someone help me with what could be the ideal configuration for such a requirement? Thanks.

I'm using a Thinkpad X270 which has a red button & a touchpad for controlling the mouse.

Often I hold the Ctrl key & by rolling the centre roller on the top of the mouse, I can enlarge
or reduce the size of the fonts on screen: however, sometimes, I don't have a mouse with
me, so I can I enlarge/reduce using the red button & touchpad?

Has anyone attempted to connect laptop with broken screen to another working screen but from another laptop make/model?  
 I'd assume it should have different voltage, drivers, etc. Besides mechanical issues, like hinges, etc.

Anyone done that?

I'm looking for an external DVD/CD writer for my client's Latitude E7490 laptop running Win10 Pro. Should he get a cheap standard USB external drive or look for one that works with type C/Thunderbolt?  Is there any advantage to Type C?  If so, could you advise on a good one to get? I'm wary of new technologies. Also additional function must justify additional price.
Thanks,
Alan

I would like some advice on security.  I have recently purchased a Microsoft Surface Pro 6.    Due to the nature of my work, I store a lot on it.

I use Google Drive to sync all documents and I am looking for the following solutions:

1) I am looking to find a solution to protect all of my data that is stored on the hard drive (synced with Google Drive), so if the laptop is stolen - the data is safe
2) I am looking for advice on how to protect log on - I am using Face ID - is that enough
3) I am looking for advice on recovery and tracing the laptop if it is stolen

Thanks

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

            Following some extensive troubleshooting, I am now able to fully access my friend's Windows 8 desktop.    At this point, I am wondering if there is a way I can configure Windows 8 so it will by pass the username and password requirement and go straight into the desktop environment.  At the moment, there is a screen with an email address, personally set up, along with a box requiring a password.  Once the password is entered, the HP Pavilion laptop takes me straight to the Windows 8 desktop environment.  Basically, I want to eliminate the login requirement and go straight to the desktop.  

             Any help regarding this question will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

             George
