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 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 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

We recently took over a companies IT, and they previously used a proxy.

Looking through the server, it appeared to be using Symantec for this which have now removed.

Recently we connected one of our laptops in to their network and straight away it wanted credentials for the proxy, for us to be able to access the Internet. We entered the domain admin details and it connected no problem.

Today, I have found some registry keys which look as though they have been added / ammended on the server. (See screenshot attached). Can I remove these, or is there any where else I need to check first? I have the ProxyEnable key on my machine but the other two look to have been added by the previous IT company.

Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

Starting Sketchup 2017 on Microsoft Surface Pro produces a Google Bug Spat and the application closes just after loading the tools dock.  


BTW....also experiencing an issue when launching KODI - <<ERROR: Unable to create GUI. Exiting>> Could these issues be graphic card related?

Device has a built-in HD540 Display Adaptor, with latest drivers installed.

Both Sketchup and KODI used to work perfectly well earlier this year.

Hope you can help. Thank you

Hi Guys,

We've been using Symantec DLO (desktop / laptop option) for a number of years across different sites.
Initially we were satisfied with the product and support, but lately DLO has been giving more and more issues with their technical support becoming poorer as time goes on.

Does anyone perhaps have a suggestion for a comparison product?

We need to install a client on a desktop / laptop, and want to the software to backup critical workstation data to the server on a fixed schedule.

Any ideas are welcome.

I have overheating issues with my Surface Pro 4 and this site recommends turning off Windows Installer Module and Windows Installer Module Worker to cool down a Surface Pro 3.  However, I don't see those items in my task manager.  The original article is here.

https://www.networkworld.com/article/2599301/microsoft-subnet/fix-found-for-microsofts-surface-3-overheating-issues.html

How can I cool down my Surface Pro 4?

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

Conference calls are made on a monthly bases at our university.  We are now relying on Zoom to conduct the communication.  Sometimes we are facing the sound issue on the laptops used for the calls.  ether remote participants cannot hear us properly or sound from the laptop is not loud enough.  If we use a speaker echo may cause the issue to the sound quality.  This became a constant issue whatever we tried to resolve this problem.  

It just crossed my mind to use the latest iPad for a conference call.  My question is, do you have experience using iPad for conference calls? how do you compare iPad and laptops considering, Sounds quality and echo factor? Do you recommend it?

Hello folks.

I have an HP Probook 650 upgraded to Windows 10 Pro.

I have set the power and sleep settings all to long times (i.e. 3 hours  before going to sleep both on batt and mains) however the user is finding that the laptop goes to sleep after about 15 minutes or so of inactivity.

What could be causing this?

Also, lock-screen is disabled.

thanks
Tracy

I have a workstation centered around a thunderbolt 3 hub (http://a.co/d/9sDkwPU) that I connect my MacBook Pro to. I have an external monitor, speakers, etc. connected. I also have a bluetooth mouse and keyboard paired with my MacBook Pro. I would like to make this a workstation that another MacBook Pro user can utilize (we both have thunderbolt 3 Mac laptops). In order to make this a very simple transition between laptops, it would seem that rather than pairing the keyboard/mouse with the laptop it should be paired with a usb bluetooth adapter plugged into the hub. That way, the laptops don't have to unpair/pair when switching (the laptops would be in close enough proximity to make some sort of "unpairing" necessary).  Unfortunately it appears Apple doesn't recognize external bluetooth adapters. Is there a workaround for this, or have I tried the wrong adapters?

We thought about using a 2.4 ghz keyboard -- but can't find one that closely mimics our Apple keyboard and mouse (we use the magic keyboard and magic mouse).

Hi guys,

Recently - one of our clients networks seemed to be attacked with a virus..leaving one computer to be acting funny. Hmmmmmm!!!

The virus seemed to be a trojan/malicious one that I am suspecting to somehow might have causing one computer to shut down.

I have disconnected the internet from this computer. And I am about to run a scan on the computer and Network to check for any virus/malicious spyware/malware that could probably be the culprit.

I use malwarebyte and Eset NOD32 Antvirus to run on the PC and do its scan.

After that (once scan all complete) - i check to make sure that they have an antivirus.

Before I do this, can someone recommend a tools to use to scan the Network and Computer for malware/virus other than the one i have mentioned above? Also, steps on how they would proceed?

Please would appreciate some guidelines and attentions on how to address this matter?

Await for further advice.

Thanks.
