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.

I have an HP Envy Model 4-1130us that was given to me with a dead hard drive. Without thinking about it or understanding the existing setup, I pulled the old hard drive, installed a used 500gb SSHD and proceeded to install Windows 7 on it, or so I thought. It turns out that this laptop has a 32gb SSD and that is what I installed Windows 7 on. During the installation process, I deleted all the existing partitions on what I thought was the SSHD, but in reality was the 32gb SSD. The 500gb SSHD is not recognized by Windows. Also, the BIOS is unusual to me in that it does not actually identify the SSD or the SSHD.
My goal is to get this laptop running Windows 7 in the fastest configuration utilizing the 32gb SSD and the 500gb SSHD. I have a bootable Windows 7 installation media on a USB flash drive. I need to know how to setup the BIOS to accomplish this. Also, what additional software do I need to take advantage of the Intel Rapid Start and Intel Smart Connect features if I should be using them?
Attached are pictures of the BIOS screens.
Thank you in advance to anybody willing to help me learn to get this laptop running Windows 7.

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.

In a public school there are a number of Lenovo Flex 4 1480 Ideapads in which computers will cease powering on until the back of the computer is removed and the battery unplugged.  After waiting for 30 seconds and plugging the computer back in the computer will work.  Would the problem be a battery, an update from Lenovo, or motherboard?

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

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.

I am running into an issue with one of our sites an multiple laptops at that site the time keeps going off by several Minutes. This site is in a different time zone than our main servers but I have a DC set up there to control the time and that time is showing correctly on the server. Unfortunately I came into this roll about a year ago blind with no documentation on the network and server setup. The old administrator was let go before I was brought on, the AD environment, GPOs, and everything is a mess and I am at a loss at why these computers times are off, the time I have at my HQ site is all working. Any one have any ideas that could help me determine what is going on?

The  laptop fan is running all the time, and the entire keyboard area (the bottom portion of the laptop) is hot to the touch. When running Task Manager to check usage, I'm consistently seeing a .NET optimization service running all the time.  I am not sure if this is what is causing this or not.

Can I downgrade the BIOS on a Lenovo T440p? The BIOS was just upgraded a month ago. Before then, I had no problems with my DVD drive, although I hardly ever used it. Now it's just not showing, not in Windows, nor in the BIOS. I thought the easiest thing to try would be to downgrade the BIOS to the previous version, which according to my update history, was version 2.43.1.2. But I cannot find it anywhere for download. I saw something online about doing some kind of factory reset in the BIOS for a different model. Is that something I can do with my model and would it cause problems? Would my operating system still be okay?
