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 user with a HP ENVY Notebook - m6-p114dx (Touch) (ENERGY STAR).   The battery will not charge past 43% from 0.   Is this battery replaceable easily in the unit or is it integrated?  If so would the entire laptop need to be replaced?

Hi Is there a benifit to having a high end graphics card in a vmware (esxi) server?  I use a laptop to suck up servers and make a backup of them.  I wanted to get a better unit since it sometimes ends up being the server while I build them a new esxi server.  I notice allot of the high end laptops have 1080 graphics cards with them.  That seems like a waste.  

Thanks all.

I have a customer who needs MS Teams for his day-to-day work but cannot use it because the Audio and speakers are muted. He says his laptop won't allow him to unmute the Audio. I'm looking for ways to help him but I don't have a clue where to start.

Many thanks

My HP Elitebook 840 g3 is no longer being charged while on the docking station.  I plugged the power cord directly to the laptop and it charges my laptops battery.  I updated the bios and that did not fix the issue.  My wife has the exact same laptop and the docking station in question does charge her laptop.  Everything else works when my laptop is using  the docking station like the usb mouse and keyboard connected to the docking station, getting to the internet from the connected ethernet on the docking station, and my two monitors work that are also connected to the docking station.

It was working yesterday and the issue began today.

I would appreciate any other troubleshooting suggestion to try to figure out the problem.  

Thank you

I am looking to restrict a user from using removable drivers on their laptops, this can be accomplished with a local GP, but wondering if there is a way to apply the policy or do it in a different way so I can apply it only to standard users [or specific user] not to admin users.

Also, would I like to lock if possible to boot from USB so they cannot remove or change their password

I need a VGA monitor for an experiment.

There is a VGA Connector on my HP ENVY dv4 laptop.  There is Intel Core i3 inside the laptop.

Is this VGA input or output?  Can I output graphics from my experiment board to this laptop monitor over VGA cable?

Hello Experts,

I have a client that say that they lost a Word file that they were working on. They say that when they were done, they just left their laptop on overnight and the file was gone. I am assuming that the laptop went to sleep.

They see the file under Recent Documents, but I guess they get a path not found. The file was downloaded before they worked on it.

I will be doing a remote session tomorrow, and if there anything i should be looking for?All I can think of is going to Windows Explorer under C:\and searching for the file name.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

She is using Windows 10, and probably Office 365

They are running a Server 2016 domain. It is the DNS (with forwarders). It is a problem with laptops that keep coming in to the building and then going out in to the world. They have a Terminal Server. I want to set the laptops to reference the url remote.company.com to get to the terminal server. In the building it is 192.168.0.3 but outside it is 75.75.67.89.

   The problem is that I don't want to set up a entire forward lookup zone on their local server because that messes up their hosting service, email and everything else when the laptop is in the building. I just want to create one dns entry for the terminal server. Long ago someone showed me how to do this. Not make a new zone but somehow add a host(a) to the local dns but I forgot how........

I only know a little bit about LCD screens and I was hoping someone could answer this question.  I have an LCD I need to replace for a customer, part NV156FHM-N48.  The cost on it is significantly higher than if I was to purchase NV156FHM-N46.  Can someone tell me if I can use either screen and what the difference is?  They are both IPS 30 pin EDP.  The only difference I just now see is the N48 does not have screw mounts.  Is there any other difference?

Hi Experts,

My father has a DELL laptop with Windows 10, with expired warranty.

Lately, as he is working or watching movies, the mouse on its own gets stuck on the Start button.  When this happens, the cursor is stuck below Start and a shadow appears near the Start button .

This has been going on several of weeks, but just yesterday this escalated to clicks and right clicks on the start button.  User interaction on the mouse pad is not responsive.

Any ideas.

HP 15-AF060CA  Windows 10 Home Premium latest version.

The system once booted will either show no battery detected or battery not charging.  

I have tried the power cycle, by removing battery and power adapter holding down the power button for 30 seconds then reconnecting.

The system came in for a screen replacement and hard drive replacement due to drop.  The system has all the latest drivers, bios etc.

Plus the fact the system sat for 2 plus years could this have depleted or killed the battery?

Any thoughts would be great.

Hi guys

I've installed an anti-theft application on my laptop, in case some thieves break into my home and take it (there's been burglaries in the area). I'm trying to think further down the line. The issue I have with these applications is that if someone takes my laptop, they may be cunning enough to take out the disk inside at which point, I can kiss goodbye the anti-theft application I installed.

Are there any tracking devices out there that I could plant into my laptop, to locate it in the event of an unfortunate event?

Thanks for helping

I have a Google Chromebook and when I take these two online assessments they don't work. One returns a "bad request" page and the other returns an error page about a bad transaction. I don't think this is a coincidence but I was wondering if there's any way to get around these issues.

hi guys

I have a Dell XPS 15 9570, with an Nvidia Geforce GTX 1050Ti (4GB) graphics card. It also has an Intel UHD Graphics 630.

The question I have is, am I making the most out out of my display for performance? When I go in to the actual Nvidia control panel, I have attached a screenshot of what it shows. It hasn't selected the Geforce, but instead the Intel UHD?

To extend my thinkpad's battery life longer, I wud like to set it such that only when

a) it's below 80%, it will charge till 100% when the power plug is connected & 
b) it will not charge the battery at above 80% & the laptop will
     run purely on AC power when plugged in
c) ideally (may not be feasible) that while charging the battery from 79% to 100%,
     it runs purely on AC

Where in Win10 can I do this?  I'm using x270

Hi Expert,

I have a Lenovo Laptop model T470 which when typing will not responding, it happens on random key and this happens once every few minutes. The laptop only used for less then 4 months. Is it due to the connection between the keypad and the motherboard loose?

 Appreciate if any expert can advise on.

Thanks!

I generally do not work with PC's as I am a systems person but have a question. I have a M6700 DELL laptop and this thing up until a week ago was awesome. Now when I cut it on the fans kick on and after a few seconds it just shuts off. I get no display but did notice the battery LED light was orange. I replaced the battery with a DELL battery and also the power cord with a Dll. It does the exact samething except this time instead of the light being orange its now white along with the other lights just as the hard drive. Could this be the motherboard. I left it connected so that the battery could charge but I doubt that's the issue. I took it a step further and took the battery out. I tried to power on the laptop without the battery just the power cord and the samething occurs. Does this sound like a motherboard issue?  I hope not please help.

Hi,
we just renewed a bunch workstations (from Windows 7 -> Windows 10) and it seems wireless users, with their notebook, cannot access "Network neighborhood" anymore.
No problem at all while connected through LAN cable.
All pc are in a AD domain.
No recent changes on policies.

Eg. if from a notebook, I try "ping other-pc-hostname", DNS resolves ok, but if I type \\other-pc-hostname I cannot access

How can I troubleshoot this?
Thank you

Hello, I am in the middle of replacing an HP HP5-p21 14dx laptop keyboard and I had to use my solder iron to melt the plastics rivets to remove the keyboard from the housing but now the new keyboard is not staying in place. Has anyone dealt with the problem and have an easy fix? Tape won't work

I need an 8 port switch capable of being compatible with a Linksys EA9500. There are several options listed for switches such as managed or not managed. I have no idea what that refers to or if I need it. My needs are not complex. The ports on the switch will go to a Dish Network Hopper tv receiver, hulu, Sony TV, blueray DVD player, two laptops and a desktop. Since I pay for  one gig service and frequently get 950 up and down I naturally want to take advantage of that speed on all my devices. One expert has already suggested two different model and brands. My budget is set at $150.00 maximum unless there is a definite need for something higher priced. I welcome suggestions. Some have a lifetime warranty that is quite nice.

I would like to test 2 Thinkpad batteries (on a x270 Win10) to see which
batteries have been used (charged & recharged) more times.

Is there a portable (as I dont have admin rights to install) freeware to do
this testing?

Looking for a kiosk software to lock down the laptops our employees will use on the road, and should only be to connect vie remote desktop services to the terminal server in the office.

It’s for productive reasons but a wall for security, so not only should it lock down apps, but also control panel etc. USB and other removal drives etc.  

I will not join the laptops to the domain, this can also be accomplished with local policy’s but will be time consuming to do it on each laptop.

Any recommendation
