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.

New install of Essentials 2012. Configured router to forward 443 to server. Companyname.remotewebaccess.com all works OK. I didn't install a cert and now can't seem to get vpn working. I'm happy to go back and purchase a cert - how do I get back to the wizard. Is it true that vpn won't work on a windows 7 PC or 10 PC without a cert? Sorry - new to essentials :-(

Hi Guys,

We have a Sony Vaio SVT13116FGS notebook with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

HP OfficeJet 100 Mobile Printer, Product No: CN551A

The printer installs successfully and print a test page immediately via Bluetooth after installation.  (just fine)
However, after notebook restart, spooling of print-job takes up to 20 minutes.  

The jobs-queue shows "printing" while it stalls, but pages show blank until it starts printing.

- Updated Bluetooth drivers
- Updated printer drivers from HP
- Uninstall Bluetooth device and reinstall

The printer prints perfectly fine in Windows 10

We have a 4 usb external hard drives need to connect them to our PC.  We have a usb hub with no ac adapter.  We were told that since there is no ac adapter on the usb hub, the small electricity supplied to the hub will nit suffice to power all the drives.

Our notebook has a USB which supply power.  We can power down the notebook and connect a phone to the usb port and it will charge.

Question, if we use a non-ac usb hub and connect it to the power usb of the notebook, will it be the equivalent of a ac-usb hub?

Please advice.

Asus X555LA - how do I get into recovery mode - I can't seem to find it

Hi there, I have a MacBook Air that was written off after having water spilt on it. I suspect the SSD hard drive is OK and I want to try and recover the data off it. I have searched the net and found plenty of adaptors for connecting earlier mac dives (2012, 2013 ect) but the interface is different for the 2015 drive.

Does anyone know what this drive interface is called and an adaptor I can use to connect it to another computer (Prefer USB3) to recover the data? .

Just updated today and after the update noticed that after a while not using the computer the external monitor connected to it turns off completely.   Prior update, the monitor & notebook screens would just go into screen-saver, the monitor screen would not turn off.

Please advice.

I view the blocking of USB for 2 reasons:

a) data leakage/loss prevention (so that sensitive data is not copied out):
     but copying data from thumb drives into the laptop is Ok, right?
     No data loss/leakage concern right?  
     So does anyone know if there are tools out there that allows the
     USB port to permit data to be copied into laptops but not out?
     Our McAfee tool doesn't appear to have this feature

b) the concern of malwares (including scripts) being executed from
     thumb drives : well for this, we'll have on-access AV in place so in
     a way this is mitigated.  Win 10 with is AV Defender also prevents
     execution of Java, VB scripts etc

Now, between item a & b, my much bigger concern is item a because
for item b, a good AV will mitigate quite well while I've not heard of
any tools that permit one-way data copying into laptop via USB.

Or does anyone know of any tools such as wireless HDD that has
such feature such that users can't reconfigure the "firewall rules"
so that data can only be copied into laptops & not out ?

To provide another intermediate laptop with sftp etc is out of the
question as this solution is too unwieldy

I purchased  an Asus F555LA-AB31 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Core i3-5010U Processor,4 GB RAM,500 GB Hard Drive, Windows 10), Black from Amazon in 2016. It is my first laptop, so please bear with my stupid questions.

I had it charging overnight. This morning, I turned it on, it worked ok for a few minutes, then shut down ......the screen was black, any lights indicating signs of life were out. What could cause this? Is it a defective laptop? I pretty much keep it charging whenever I am not using it. Please help ASAP. THanks!

Please provide me with recommendations for purchasing the best heavy duty backpack that will be able to carry three laptops.

I have already gone through several backpacks that simply aren't very heavy duty and develop problems like zippers unzipping and holes because they are unable to support the weight or bulkiness of carrying three laptops.

I'm currently using i7-3610QM with 16gb of ram, ssd plus dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT760M graphics card. Everything works just fine on my laptop, but there I'm looking at upgrading to one that's more mobile and has touch-screen (so 2-in-1) with longer battery life.

My work uses Google Chrome 20-30 tabs, Firefox 5-10 tabs, MS word few files, MS excel few files, few image file opening, music running. At times also running Photoshop or Illustrator.

Everything's running smoothly at the same time and I switch between program all the time with no 'lag' or frozen programs. Love it to bits, just need something that's more portable and also with a much longer battery life due to travel requirements.

Will the following system 'stack' work just as well, if not better?  i7-7500u, 1tb NVMe M.2 ssd, 16gb ram but no dedicated graphics card.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

Ok this is the strangest thing.. We have a client who stayed in a hotel over the weekend and ever since then the below text has been appearing in emails he receives. He can send us an email and the text is not there. If i reply to him the text is there. He is not at the hotel now.

I've tried restarting the computer, creating a new outlook profile, removing the saved wifi credentials for the hotel. Scanned with malwarebytes, avg, windows defender, checked signature settings, removed all add ins for outlook.
Today I'm going to try and repair microsoft office, other than that idk what else to try.
  Any ideas??

I couldn't find one at Dell or Lenovo. Perhaps I missed something. I would rather not go for HP at this time.

I thought I had deleted Roxio from my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop.  When I restarted it,
It would not reboot, and the upshot was I re-installed XP. Unfortunately, about 25 Roxio
files remained as read only files, that I can not erase.  I tried changing them to hidden,
but it didn't work.  I would like to get them out of the computer.  Any suggestions?

I need to change my default interface to bge0 and it is using bge2.

I have done what I thought would change it several times and in different places. I can load my operating software using bge2 and it works almost entirely but I can not use a few commands that I HAVE to have work.
The fault after typing the command that I need to work says something along the lines of "bge0:1 does not exist" or "bge0:1 is not a valid interface" I can not remember exactly but can provide more details if needed.

if someone could shed some light on this problem it would be fantastic. and maybe also explain exactly I'm looking at.

I have a Dell laptop that has had ongoing issues with the hard drive and not wanting to boot so we decided to put a new hard drive in it.  When I was doing the Windows 7 install, it failed, we shut it off and when it came back up, it says BootMgr is Missing - if we reboot, all we can do when hitting F12 is to boot from the hard drive or the network - even looking at BIOS, I dont see anything about a CD/DVD - on one reboot, that option was there but then it was gone.  Thoughts
