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 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

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?

Does anyone have any idea on how to speed up the connections? I have a few people that their internet speed slow down to 1 tenth of what their speeds should be. The laptops are Dell Latitude 7480's

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

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.

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 ā€” 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

Wonder how many IT engineers using MS Surface as a primary device instead of a traditional laptop.  Any pros/cons?
Easy to connect to dual screen displays via the docking stations, etc.  Network port throughput?  Memory, CPU?  

Any suggestions input appreciated.

I'm trying to figure out the best course of action in order to setup office laptops on Server 2012 R2 Standard while keeping desktop configs the same in the office as well as home.

With previous server versions when I've done this I would locally joined the laptops to the domain and configured it as a local workstation then, working from home just meant connecting via VPN and basically work the same from home as in the office.  I haven't done this yet on Server 2012 so I thought I'd ask in case there were more efficient ways of going about this.  BTW, I didnt think RDP would be applicable here because RDP'ing into the server when locally in the office seems necessary.

Thanks everyone

Please provide me with reviews for the Microsoft Surface laptop as well as any known issues or problems that users have reported.

A user I support is interested in purchasing the latest Microsoft Surface laptop but says that he has also heard of users reporting issues.

In which year did all laptop manufacturers start including Wi-Fi on every laptop? In other words, what is the newest, most recent laptop model that I could reasonably expect to find that didn't have Wi-Fi built-in on the motherboard and would still require the purchase of a PCMCIA, PC Card, CardBus and ExpressCard, or some other extension, in order to connect it to a network through Wi-Fi?

I see I could save a bundle on a hybrid 1T drive over a straight SSD.

Dos this fit into a 15" MacBook?
