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 trouble getting the drive to install properly with a IRISScan Pro 4 on Window 7. I am running Windows under Parallels on a Mac El Capitan. But, that should not matter.

What steps can I follow to first get the program to install correctly?

Thanks.

Greetings everyone,
                                       I'm looking to for laptops to be used in a classroom setting for children at the K12 level and younger. Chromebooks are attractive but not looking at them at the moment, so sticking with Windows.  I was looking at the Lenovo N24 as a great example of specs and price,  Lenovo

Not wanting to purchase from Lenovo directly, does anyone know any company that specializes in providing educational products and services. e.g  TKO Education

Thank you kindly.

Hi,
I need your help to identify the LCD screen on Thinkpad T410.
The type of T410 is 2522-DM9 or Product ID: 2522DM9.
The screen is broken and I want to order a new one, cheap from Asia.
I do not want to open the screen now and I cannot see anything on display. I cannot connect it to an external monitor.
I can find on eBay some parts and with Lenovo technical support I could probably find FRU:
https://support.lenovo.com/de/en/solutions/migr-74566
But in the past, I remember, the display was a Samsung type, don’t remember now the model.
Some of them are with 30pins, some with 40 pins, some WXGA and some WXGA+, different resolutions.
I would like to identify properly the Samsung type and buy cheap on Alibaba or Aliexpress or Taobao.
For example: 1, 2, 3.

Can you help to identify the proper Samsung type, the LCD model for the Thinkpad T410 2522-DM9?

I have erratic mouse movement and keyboard issues from these external components when used through the dock via the USB ports. I have an E-Port Plus II dock.  If I leave the laptop slightly open the issues go away. If i undock the mouse stays stuck on the right moving erratically and a new mouse appears. Also a few faint circle hover spots. All drivers, Bios and even monitor software updated, not malware or adware. Trackpad even replaced. It happens in Safe mode also and even with a new profile.  W10 64bit. Please advise.

I have an HP laptop which came with Windows 7.  Product  WQ668UA#ABA.  I have an XP drive from a failed G72-c55dx which looks almost identical.  It contains a legacy application which must run on XP.

The laptop will not boot into Windows XP.  I found a great post on EE laying out how to inject SATA drivers into the offline disk and load the hive to set the driver.  My problem is I am unable to locate the XP SATA driver.  HP.com lists only W7 drivers.

I was able to find some downloads from other sites but there are so many drivers to choose from I am unable to determine the correct driver required.  

Any assistance in locating the correct driver would be appreciated.

I haven't used my Surface Book for a week or two. Turned it on today, and the surface arc bluetooth mouse won't work.  I can't get anyone on the line at MS Support; and the canned advise doesn't work.  Any bluetooth experts out there who can give me a hand?

So, editing a few hours later.  The issue here is that ordinarily what one does is to open the services option, and go to the bluetooth page, then You click and the thing connects with your bluetooth item, in this case an arch surface mouse.  But unlike in the past two years, the two can't pair. So the mouse doesn't work.  This has worked fine for two or more years ago that I have had a Surface Book.  Something has changed.  What?

How do I download free apps from Windows 10 Store on a domain joined Windows 10 device?

I have users on domain joined windows 10 devices, their accounts are in Office 365. The email address is in the form of "firstname.lastname@companyname.co.uk".

As the email address is a 365 Company Account I can not make it a Microsoft Account.

I can log in as a Work Account to the store, but when  try to download it wants me to create a Microsoft Account.

I could create a Microsoft Account in the form of  "firstname.lastname.companyname@outlook.com", but on mass that is long winded.

Is there a better way to give access to Windows Store apps to Domain Joined Laptops and Desktops

Consider we now read 1M(1Mi)Byte data from memory.
 We assume 32bit address space, where upper 16 bit specifies
 row address and lower 16 bit specifies column address.
 Compare the numbers of cycles we need in this data transfer
 for the following memory access protocols.
 (a) Original memory access by column and row addresses,
 (b) Fast page transfer, where the page size is 64K(64Ki)Byte
 (16bit address space), so that we can access a content of
 the same page only by specifying column address.
 (c) Burst transfer, where 64 byte data can be consecutively
 read after we specify both row and column addresses.

People,
I'm using HP EliteBook 820 G4 Notebook PC and have downloaded the Sound Driver from: https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/hp-elitebook-820-g4-notebook-pc/11122281

Open in new window


But still, I'm having a problem with my Windows 10 1607 (64-bit) laptop audio all in a sudden ?

There is no sound playback:
No-Audio
From the Device Manager, I can see:

Intel(R) Smart Sound Technology (Intel(R) SST) Audio Controller
Device Status:
This device cannot start. (Code 10)

STATUS_DEVICE_POWER_FAILURE

So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Trying to install Windows 10 on this laptop but keep getting the following error below. This is after I select a partition to have Windows installed on. This laptop had Windows 7 prior to the attempted install to Windows 10. Mind you, I am not doing an upgrade install but rather a fresh install.  I am using a USB ISO to do the OS install. I know this USB ISO works because I can install the OS on other machines I have. I even tried DVD ISO but to no avail. When I try to revert back to Windows 7 install by installing with a fresh OS, I was still getting this error. This error occurred when Windows tries to install Windows (showing percentages completed). I even tried removing the RAM and reseating it or switching slots, but still to no avail.

Hi,

We have new starters and leavers most weeks across the globe.

Currently, we sit and build new laptops on an individual process which is very time consuming.

Can anyone recommend any software that will allow us to create an image(s) and roll it out to new machines whilst also adding them to the domain. We'd also want something ideally that is a one off cost rather than per machine.

If it's successful, we'd like to roll this out globally so are there any other factors that we need to be aware of?

It doesn't have to necessary be a software. If this is possible to do off the network, then that would also be fine.

Thanks,
Nish

We just got new HP EliteOne 800 G3 AIO - All in One Desktop PC's. When trying to boot to the network, it starts up fine and then it gets to a point and just stops/ hangs up. We have probook laptops with a similar Bios and they run fine. Setting are pretty much the same when comparing Bios settings. This is happening when UEFI and secure boot on. When in legacy mode I am able to boot to the network fine and start imaging. It is only happening with this new desktop. Would appreciate any help with this issue. Thanks
