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.

Need some insight on the latest docking stations.  I come from a long history of Latitude E series laptops with effortless docking with a serial connection base of the laptop.   All new adaptation of this concept appear to be a bit more cumbersome.  Does anyone have some insight on whether there are still adequate options or what I should hold out for in the future or am I just being nostalgic?

What is the difference between Dell Latitude 3000 and 5000 series laptops?

Does anyone have knowledge of how these differ? The prices for the 5000 series are substantially higher than for the 3000 even with seemingly identical specs, except for the backlit keyboard. Dell has not been very helpful in answering this other than to suggest that the 5000 built better.

My laptop Dell service tag  976TSY1 Latitude E6430 complains about the AC adapter not being Dell spec so it refuses to charge the battery, it runs fine when the adapter is plugged in although charge is at 0%. It is the same adapter that came with it (second hand) but it used to charge the battery without complaining.  

Why has it started complaining about the charger not being up to spec now when it used to work fine and what have I got to replace to make it charge the battery again? Is there some battery current sense chip I have to replace on the mobo?

I have 4 Windows 7 laptops with SP1 that need to be updated to the latest versions of Windows 7 is there a service pack that will bring them right up to date or do I have to suffer  the huge list of updates that always seem to end up "restore back to previous version"

I have an HP Pavillon Entertainment PC dv7t-2200 CTO. Recently the touchpad stopped working in Windows 10. The touchpad works before logging into windows so it is not a hardware problem.

I went to device manager and uninstalled the Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad. I downloaded the driver from HP and re-installed. Still didn't work. Uninstalled the driver again and cleaned the registry with CCleaner and re-installed it using Windows Update . Still not working.

Don't know what my next move should be. I have a wireless mouse so I am able to use the laptop.

We're trying to buy a new laptop - currently we use an Asus N330 EEE netbook. It's nearing end of life, needs to be replaced as it's heating up and Macrium Reflect is throwing an error that indicates the hard drive is dying.

What my husband needs is a small laptop (11.6" screen or smaller) that is fast, that he can have multiple browser windows open on, as well as a few spreadsheets, and switch from one to the other quickly. The Asus has 1,6G/2G/250G/W7/ION.

He uses Kingsoft software, not Office. Windows 10 pro would probably be best, definitely not a chromebook or Windows 10S. Does he want a faster processor, more RAM, both?

Oh, he also has a monitor he likes to hook up to, it has a VGA input, so if we can't have that, can we purchase an HDMI to VGA adapter? As he stays in one place, we'd prefer to have an Ethernet port. He'd like at least 3 USB ports. We'd like to pay $500 or less.

There are so many to look at, hopefully with this info someone can give us a list. Thanks!!

Or has it to be CSM mode

Bad hdd being replaced with a SSD

Can get beyond non system disk or disk error
Replace a d press any key when ready

It boots with a knoppix CD

I’m lost

Have recovered 1000s of Conputers but stumped on this

Perhaps bad original recovery dvds supplied with the system

Lenovo ideapad processor speed?

Hi,
I'm looking at a laptop for my son who is into 'Football manager' Game - the latest 2018 says it needs a decent video card (which I know are built-in ones in Laptops) and at least 2.2GHz: It also needs to be around the £320 mark.

Below seems to fit the bill BUT I've been unable to verify the speed independently of Amazon (as I can see they have the RAM wrong I'm concerned they might have the 2.4GHz wrong too!)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lenovo-IdeaPad-320-14IKBN-14-Inch-Notebook/dp/B07515ZHV9/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8&th=1

Any help appreciated
Thanks

I recognise the SEO need to have good quality content and plenty of it for Google's on-page assessment.

Most of my online users access my site through their mobiles rather than PCs, laptops etc.

I have two questions arising:

!.  Given that on-page SEO is done on the laptop version how important is it to maintain ALL or the vast majority of the editorial content on the mobile version?

2.   Can I edit the editorial content on the mobile version down to the bare essentials so the mobile site is that much easier to navigate and work with on
the much more confined screen?

Of course serving Google is of absolute importance for rankings.

I would welcome views.   Thank you.

We have a lab of 15 laptop computers.  At the end of their use, they are all placed into a charge cart.  My desire is to set these laptops to stay on in the cart while being plugged in so that I can administer updates and other things whenever necessary.  The only question I have is, is there a problem with leaving a laptop plugged in most of the time while it is still on?  What effect does it have on the battery and anything else?  I have read numerous theories on this so I was curious of the opinions in this forum.

Hi, my laptop requires that I use the function key in combination with either F6, F7, or F8 to control my volume on Windows 10.  My other laptop doesn't require the use of the function key.  This is a Samsung Notebook Model BR8GSMT.  Is there a way to avoid the use of the function key?  Thanks

I need to remove all proxy settings from users computers(laptops) via group policy so that they can by pass the proxy when at home.
I had a doc before that stepped through all the steps to get this done but I cant seem to find it. It would remove the check box for the proxy thus greying out the proxy address.
This way the users could use their laptops at home and be able to get onto the internet.
It had me setting up 3 registry settings in the GPO:
proxyenable
proxy server
proxy override

Any help for this would be appreciated.

Turned on my HP Probook (win 7 pro) laptop and all I get is a white cursor.  Been like that for about an hour.  Safe mode the same thing.  Did a system restore back to the 7th of July and I still get the cursor.  Any ideas on what to try?

I have a Bell (my ISP) 2000 modem/router.  It is connected directly to the PC beside it by way of an ethernet cable.  This modem/router sends a wireless signal throughout the house.  The wifi signal is picked up by other PCs, laptops, tablets and 3 televisions.  I would like to setup a simple home network for my PCs, laptops and tablets.
How do I do this?  I would like to do this without disrupting the existing wifi system throughout the house.
Thanks,
Capreol

I have an HP Wireless Printer that connects after rebooting my laptop and printer but it then loses connection. My macbook pro and desktop mac cannot find it after it disconnects. I have the same printer in another location and it works just fine.

I have downloaded the HP software: HP Easy Start.  Even that program cannot find the printer most of the time. When it finds it, it appears to connect but then it loses the connection.

Trying to get an original (or close to original) X284G Battery for our Dell Inspiron 1525 and stumbled across quite a few options on eBay.

This seller seems to be receiving quite a bit of good reviews for this particular battery model:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/252945012075

I'm not a shill and not trying to promote this product and just wondering what other options/places/products that you guys would recommend if it were you.

Thank you for your time.

I need advice in setting up a Windows 10 Lab that resides on a domain.  All the computers will have the same login.  Its a lab for kids so you can imagine they will be trying to get onto bad stuff a lot.  Btw, all the computers are laptops, if that has any bearing.  At first I was thinking that maybe I need to get a software called deepfreeze so that the computer is new after each restart, but on second thought I'm thinking that I need to give the users a restricted account where they are able to not change much of anything.  Is there any way I can do this from Windows 2008 server and set a tight group policy or profile that would allow the least amount of changes to the computer?  Can I also create something that prevents them from saving documents or changing the browser settings?

Hi everyone,

I have a Dell  Inspiron 7548 laptop using Windows 10. Every since I purchased it, it has been slow to boot up and this has gotten worse over the last year of having it. It has 12GB of ram, i7 chip so I am not sure why it is so slow to boot up and slow when I restore it when I open it up after sleep. Any help on how to bring it up to speed would be greatly appreciated. I have already defragmented the hard drive and used Malwarebytes to check for spyware.

Thank you,

Derek
