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.

How do i get into the bios? It's running Win 10 Home and the fingerprint reader WAS active in Windows but now isn't. I'm wondering if the fingerprint reader has been enabled FOR entering the bios as well, so needs to be used in conjunction with key presses? There's also the issue of the toggling of function keys as well to add to the complexity. I suspect that F1-F12 are not defaulted but what's above IS.

I have a laptop with a guest account that is open with no password and an administrative password which i forget and therefore can't install any software and can't connect the laptop to a Wi-Fi. Does any one know how i can recover or reset the administrative password with using any CD or tool. I only have the laptop with me.

Thanks.

I will buy used on Ebay, for one. But I am not sure what memory/CPU speed options to consider.

I mostly use if for email, web browsing, but also program sometimes in Angular and even load Windows on Parallels. Sometimes, I do C#.NET development on Visual Studio on Windows.

So, I want a machine that can perform, but have been living with much older MacBook processors without terrible difficulty.

What do you suggest for value and performance?

Thanks

How to fix display issue, screen flickering issue when I plug in power cord to the machine
How to fix display issue, screen flickering issue when I plug in
power cord to the machine.

Before I start explaining the solution lets check out once the issue how it looks like
after I connect the power cord. most of you also have faced this and I hope this video could help
you to resolve your display flickering issue.

Let me tell you this display issue comes only I connect the power cord otherwise it looks good
without connecting charger. but I cannot continue more time without connecting charger and battery
will go down.

So let me show you the issue, what happens when I connect the charger. I just connect the charger
and you can see the display changes suddenly and its quite difficult and painful for eyes to continue
with this display.

Solution for this is to right click on Desktop and select graphics properties click on Advanced
and change the refresh rate from 60Hz to 50Hz. click on apply and ok.

Now if you plugin and plug out the charger you wont see the display changes and flcikering.
It's all set
Thank you for watching this video.
Right click on Desktop and select Graphics Properties then select Advacned mode as shown in Image - 1

From the Display setting, change the Refresh rate from 60HZ to 50HZ, and then apply the setting

It's done you could see there is no difference in display even when you plugin and plug out the charger
from the machine and display is clear.

I have a well used Probook that occasionally shut down. It is now worse and will shut down immediately after booting. I have cleaned the fan (not dirty) and replaced thermal paste to no effect.

On startup, the CPU heat sink gets too hot to touch within two seconds, so I am suspecting a component failure.

Is there a fix or do I just toss the machine?

Hello, I have a Verizon Fios G1100 router, the reset button was hit yesterday so I had to reconfigure the wifi so I create the main SSID and a Guest SSID. On the main wifi, SSID the 2.4Ghz and 5Hz SSID are the same names using WPA2/WPA mixed mode and the guest account. The problem I am having is when users with their laptops trying to connect it takes forever for the connection to complete most users will just give up. My desktop users with older systems are connecting without any problems so this morning I renamed the guest account and removed the password and the laptop users could connect but it still took a fair amount of time for the connection to complete sometimes we would have to reboot and turn the wifi on and off.  Any direction on what I am doing wrong or settings that are not set right?

I contacted Lenovo to purchase an FRU part of 01AV968.  This FRU is a motherboard for a Lenovo 11e 3rd Generation Chromebook.  Lenovo or their Encompass do not have the board.  A number on the board is DALI8BMB6H0 REV: H.   I have tried several suppliers to no avail.  If anyone has any suggested suppliers for this motherboard, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Experts,
I need some advice. We are looking to buy some refurbished notebooks. We will be using these notebooks to run Powerpoint presentations for the events that we do so they will need to be stable and powerful enough to deal with embedded hi-res videos etc. The two options of laptops we have:
Option 1: Proline Professional W540SU Notebook, 14" HD Screen, Core i3-4000M CPU, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB SATA HDD, Intel HD Graphics 4600
Option 2: Dell Latitude E6420, 14", Core i5-2540M CPU,  4GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB SATA HDD, Intel HD Graphics 3000

Which would be the better option for our requirements? I3 with the better graphics or I5 with older HD graphics? 2nd option is about R 600 more which is about $48. I know these are much older generation systems but if they will work fine then that is all we need. I dont want an issue when we want to play 1080p video within our powerpoint presentations or outside of powerpoint. it has to run smooth and no lag

Thanks

If i were after a laptop, my question would be answerable in one word: 'Thinkpad'

But what i'm looking for my client is a small netbook with say a 10 inch screen that is light and as powerful as possible that can be picked up cheaply as a used item. I used to be pretty happy with Sony Vaio netbooks with Atom processors, even ones with 1GB of RAM. But i don't think even double that is realistic these days, web pages being as bloated as they are. This would be for general use, with a Debian Linux ( probably Mate) desktop. I'd probably be using ebay.co.uk but am willing to look at new options as well as used. Any good recommendations?

In this question I do not want a universal charger.
I want the actual charger that asus made.

If the new version is $100, then I would like to save money and find a used version.

I want to have an extra charger.
I have other laptops also and I would like for charger to work with other laptops. It is very important that it works with this laptop. Not that important that it works with all laptops.

What type of universal travel charger should I get.

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Have a Windows 10 HP Notebook that, after booting, would get "Your PC will automatically restart in one minute."
In attempting various repairs, I finally got to the bootrec fixes. The last one, bootrec  /fixboot failed with "access is denied."
I went through the Diskpart fix and at the last step "cd /d G:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot" I get another "Access is denied"
I had the UEFI partition named "G"
I'm at the point where I can only boot from a Windows 10 USB that goes right to the "Install" function.
Going to "Repair your PC" or Install.
I can access the Repair..." and that's where I've been trying the fixes in Command Prompt"
Kinda lost, here.
Any help appreciated.

Hello Experts,

Edge just flashes after opening and typing in the address bar is slow to impossible.  I'm not sure how long this has been going on as I tend to use Firefox.  I do believe the Edge issue may be related to other issues such as right clicking a system tray icon not producing a fly out menu.  Those issues started about a month ago.

Any help would be appreciated.  I'm sick and at home so I will respond quickly.

Thanks so much,

John

Here's a photo of the inside of my HP EliteBook 8770w:

HP8770w what is next to mSATA
Check out the slot where I put the three red question marks — what's it for? The gold connectors at the top look remarkably similar to the gold connectors at the top of the mSATA slot, but I don't think that the laptop supports two mSATA drives, although I could be wrong about that. Anyone know for sure what that slot is for? Thanks much, Joe

My company needs to purchase a laptop for our graphic designer who does high end projects using the Adobe Create Cloud.  Can someone recommend a laptop.  The laptop will need a hard drive with lots of Terabytes for space.  How much RAM, type of graphics card, processor should be considered and any other system resources you can recommend to get.   Laptop must run fast with good redundancy in case of hard drive failure.  Screen size is 17 in.  Laptop manufacturer is flexible as long as the laptop is super good.
