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 am trying to digitize cassette tapes using Audacity 2.2.2 and am not having much luck.  I have looked at several You Tube videos but none of them address my issue.  The problem I'm having is that even before I connect  a cassette player into my computer, If I click on the microphone in Audacity and select start monitoring,  I can see activity on the mic bar but can not hear anything.  If I try to record that activity, it does not record so when I play it back, I hear nothing.  The computer I'm using is HP ENVY - 15t -k200 CTO Notebook PC - Windows 10.

I believe it has to do with the selection of the type of input on the program but I think I have tried them all and can not hear anything.  Aside from this issue, am I right in thinking that if you connect an audio signal to the computer, that the sound should now come from the computer?  (like using a speaker?).  If so, that doesn't work for me.  What do I have to do to be able to hear the audio on the computer?

We will be travelling in a few months and looking for a laptop. The last one we had a defective part common to multiple brands. An Nvidia GPU. I'll have to go back and look for the screen size to compare that to the 3 seen below.

Opinions on these three laptops priced under $280?
Price range is $227 to $279.

Look down the page for Compare Similar Items. The $279 model has a faster processor.

That one does not show a hard drive size. Maybe in the details it does.

What is the difference between 1 and 2 processor count? Does two mean dual? Isn't quad preferred?

Never heard of these sellers, is that a red flag?

We are thinking of install MBAM for our laptops.
My question is we are running Windows 10 Pro and I have seen articles that say Win 10 Pro is not supported.
Is this true or do we have to upgrade to Win 10 Ent?

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          I am needing step by step procedures or guidelines for carrying out a factory reset of an Acer Chromebook (C720 Series) Model ZHN.  Basically, I am wanting to wipe and reload it back to its manufacture default setup.  I do not have any software for doing this.  But, I believe some manufacturers have built-in ways of doing this using specific key combinations.  I might be mistaken on this point though.   At any rate,  I look forward to reviewing any feedback given to this question.  

          Thank you

I'm considering buying a new high spec computer and torn between a desktop and a laptop.
I work with very large datasets consisting of a million rows in an Excel worksheet.
My must have requirements are shown below.
i9 CPU, Minimum 32GB Ram and a 1TB SSD hard drive and the capacity to output to 4 monitors.
The desktop I am looking at is very large and weighs a ton compared to a 17.3 inch laptop.
I do not need any super graphics as all my work is spreadsheet related.
I do like the portability of a laptop as it is much easier to move around especially when relocating.
It will not be used for anything other than working with spreadsheets.
Either device would be custom built by a well known professional company.
My question is:  Are there any downsides using a laptop for the heavy workload I would require it
to perform coupled with my minimum requirements both mentioned above ?
overheating springs to mind.
Many thanks
Ian

FlintOS on ASUS Tinker Board provides a good ChromeOS experience however we have run into a brick wall hoping to enroll as a device on Google Management Console (G-Suite). "Oops! The system failed to determine device model or serial number" is the message we get. The environment is K12 school district where budget constraints are always present. Single Board Computers could be an alternative to Chromebooks if they can be centrally managed.  If not Google Management Console (G-Suite) then something else?

Win 10  kept booting up in Safe mode despite that I selected "Boot up normally"

2 changes I've done before this happen :
a)  launch 'msconfig' & check on "Safe Mode"
b) at command prompt, issue:
     c:\>  bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy legacy

I think step b is the cause: what should I now issue to reverse it so that it will boot into normal Windows mode.
Currently, from the boot menu, whichever option I chose or I just let it boot up  without going into Boot menu,
it still boots up to  Safe Mode.


This is urgent.

How can I make the Wi-Fi network stay connected while a laptop is plugged into the network with an Ethernet cable within Windows 10?

Some laptops on our network (mostly Microsoft Surfaces) disconnect from the Wi-Fi network whenever they are plugged into the network using an Ethernet network cable.

The Ethernet network connects the laptop to the same network and subnet that the laptops are connected to via Wi-Fi.

I need to make sure that these laptops stay connected to the Wi-Fi network whenever they are connected to the same network using an Ethernet network cable. How can this be done?

In WSUS, Can I filter approved updates by date range?  I am trying to figure out whether an approved update caused a network issue with some laptops NICs, but I can't figure out how to filter by date.  If I select approved updates, it will crash the update services portal since it lists all updates (60k +)

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

        I have an Acer Chromebook (C720 series) Model: ZHN which is missing the battery charger or external power adapter.  It will not power on, so, I believe if I can purchase a power adapter to recharge it, the Chromebook will likely turn on.  That said, I am wondering if someone could kindly provide a direct online purchase link for an external battery charger or power adapter for this particular model of Acer Chromebook.

        Any feedback given will be greatly appreciated.

        Thank you

I have Win10 Pro ver1709 laptops and we are slowly applying Bitlocker to our laptops. My team has just started noticing Bitlocker would begin encrypting on their own (we do not have MBAM) if left in the OU with the GPO settings applied in the attached doc. It did not do this previously, everything I read online states auto-encryption requires MBAM or manual initialization to begin encryption. We have seen this happen on more than one laptop. Also, something we just started doing was using SecureBoot which required us to use UEFI on the laptop.

- my GPO settings are in the attached file.

- if it is because of a GPO, which GPO setting (only I would have changed the GPOs, and I have not changed anything) is causing the auto-initialization? I prefer to have the settings needed WITHOUT auto-encrypting, unless that's not an option. please advise.

iTunes just started randomly opening by itself on my Macbook. No matter how many times I exit, it keeps opening by itself. There doesn't seem to be anything in the settings to prevent this. It's extremely distracting; please help me kill this iTunes nuisance!

USB port intermittently and repeatedly fails.

When I go into Device Manager, 'USB Composite Device' typically will have a yellow exclamation mark.

I have tried right clicking and updating it, but I am always told the most up-to-date driver is installed.

I then right click and 'uninstall' it, reboot, and everything returns to normal again until the next time...which is usually within 1-2 weeks.

I do typically connect this to a DisplayLink pluggable 3.0 USB docking tower. However, this is a company machine and we all do the same with the docking tower and I seem to be the only one having this repeat issue.

Thanks for any suggestions. - JH

We are shopping around for a second hand laptop for travel in 3 months.

What's wrong with this system? Surely it is a quad i7 or it may not be?

Can you recommend a laptop with no camera or wireless card installed. We are not allowed to have a laptop with such in the NOC. Removing the wireless card is simple; however, prying the screen apart and disabling the web camera is a bigger deal. I'd rather the laptop come without a camera.

We are looking to replace some of our Dell Precision laptops that are used to run Autodesk Civil 3D.  Would having SSD's in RAID 0 make it noticeably faster when opening and working on CAD files over the network?  Not sure if the cost is worth the performance boost.


Thanks,
