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.

We use HDD duplicators here at our school. Over the years, we've duped both standard HDD and SSD drives.

This year, our laptops came with 256ssd drives from SUNEAST

These drives take 4-5 TIMES as long to duplicate....even using the setting that only copies the content, not a full sector by sector copy

Yesterday, it took 3.5 hours to duplicate 98GB of data to one of these drives.

Any ideas about why this is happening?  I have 3 different duplicators and it's the same slow speed on each.

Within the laptop, windows 10 runs just fine...8GB RAM Dell Latitude E5440

But duplicating is like molasses.

Thanks!

Need to know the type of SSD and the method for upgrading the SSD of a notebook.

The spec of the notebook is in the link below.

I need to know the difference in the compatibility of m.2 SATA vs m.2 NVMe. Are they the same or different?

We have many HP 840 G3 EliteBook laptops that are failing SCCM with a red screen. These have been reimaged several times each and still fail.
Our sccm guys say to reimage it and it should work. 4 times? Maybe someone can advise as to what log files I should be looking at.

I am not the sccm admin but we do have access to most of the logs. Thanks in advance.

We will be implementing a GPO that will require USB drives to be encrypted before they can be written to.  I have this GPO working, but I also need to exclude this policy from applying to certain users (Domain Admins, Desktop Support, etc.).  So far any attempts at this piece have been unsuccessful.  We are using BitLocker for the encryption.

Any suggestions as to how to accomplish this?

Windows 10 on a new notebook - I have two partitions:  C: is my Operating System, and D: is my data.

I wanted to get into Safe mode in Windows 10 using MSCONFIG, but it said that my drive was encrypted using Bitlocker.  (I don't remember doing that, but anyway ...)  So I tried to decrypt my C: drive using a procedure I found at:
http://users.isr.ist.utl.pt/~mbayat/hacks/how-to-remove-bitlocker-encryption-in-windows-10/ 

In the process of decrypting my C: drive, I think I must have removed a key that it contained for my D: drive.  Or I did something that resulted in my D: drive being inaccessible.  When I click on D: in File Explorer, it asks me for the 48-digit recovery key.

Help!  What are my options to get all my data back?  Thanks

I have to install a new SSD drive with a new Win10 OS on 12 laptops.  Is there a way to create a bootable USB drive that has the Win10 with all the software preloaded on the initial install such as Office software, Adobe, etc...


Is there a free way to setup this USB the way I want it so that I can just install the "image" as I put them together?

Hello all,
I have a Lenovo Yoga 260 that is Windows 10 Pro.  I have turned off ALL settings that I can find to have it go into sleep mode or hibernation.  I have it so that it you close the lid nothing happens.  I have sat there for 30 minutes and when you open the lid everything was fine.
Now when it sits overnight it turns itself off.  When I turn it back on the wireless will not turn on.
I have no idea why this is happening.
Could anyone please help guide me to how to fix this.
I will not be able to work on this until Saturday.
Thank you in advance,
Kelly

I have 2 PCs that are both connected to the same WiFi network.  Both PCs are on the same work network, both have the same workgroup name and I have toggled network sharing off and on - on both of the devices.

Neither can ping the other.  However, where it gets strange here... If I run simultaneous cmd pings of each other, #1 PC starts successfully pinging the other, but stops if I stop the ping attempts from the other PC to it.  #2 PC pings never resolve.

Both devices are Dell Optiplex 3030AIO and on Windows 7 Pro, Service Pack 1

Hello Experts,

I am setting up new laptops in my organization with Windows 10 Pro (version 1809). I have encountered an issue after copying over Roaming Profiles (.v6), the user's Taskbar is not usable. Most of the 'custom' icons in the systray do not work. The user cannot right click most of these icons and get a context menu (however a few work, such as the battery icon, Bluetooth, etc, most of the 'System' icons do work). Mainly any 'custom' icons (such as Symantec, Adobe, etc) do not work.
Also, any program shortcuts in the bottom left corner (such as Mail, Explorer, etc) behave 'oddly'. If the user clicks the Mail icon to launch it, it launches, but then immediately closes.
Seems like some sort of registry corruption, but I cannot narrow it down.
I have observed that I can log in with my own profile and copy over my Roaming Profile and this issue does not repro. I have full functionality of the Taskbar and systray icons as expected.
I might also add that the user accounts affected are not Administrator accounts, they are Standard users.
One last detail - this is an upgrade, not a clean install of Windows 10. We are upgrading from Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 Pro.

Has anyone encountered any issues like this with Roaming Profiles? Any help is much appreciated!

Placed the updated file into a networkshare accessible to everyone

Set the GPP to "UPDATE"

The local file is not being updated

But local file not changed.

Hi,

I have a notebook that I would like to install Linux on. The system does not have a TPM chip. So I am wondering are the any options for an encrypted file system. So if I loose it people cant get to the disk and read my information or use recovery tools etc.

My guess is I am out of luck - but thought I should ask anyway - just in case.

Thanks,

Ward.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          I am almost ready to start installing some applications and games onto an Acer Chromebook C720 Series Model ZHN running Chrome OS.  Before I begin this process, I am wondering how I can check the available internal hard drive storage or free space on this Chromebook.

          Thank you

A client has an Asus ROG GL753V that was somehow bricked during the latest Microsoft upgrade.  When turning the laptop on, it sits at the Asus splash screen and goes no further.  F2 is not effective to enter the bios.  It just sits there at the splash screen.  I've seen another post online from two days ago with the exact issue (Same laptop) after the latest Microsoft update.

I'm at a loss here and have found no useful info to guide me.

Any idea how to fix what the N#RX(&D MS Update did to this poor laptop?

Thanks tons for any guidance..

Thanks!

Hello Community Members...

I have a notebook which I have had for about a year or so...

At idle with Task Manager opened and no other programs the CPU is about 60%...

I have Windows 10 Home Edition 64 Bit with 4GB of RAM installed...

Two questions PLEASE...

      1) Is it quite normal for the CPU to do 60% or so on idle can I do something about that to bring it down lower...
      2) Computer maintenance off the top of my head I think you need to do several things EACH WEEK for the machine to run smoothly and burn less power...

Like some sort of DISC clean up for checking any errors/corrupt files and Disc Fragmentation...

Is there any other maintenance tips that I can do but had computers for 10 years or so AND NEVER DONE THESE THINGS lol...

All help SO MUCH valued and appreciated with your help and time/advice with my current enquiry...

Best Ever

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

        I have an Acer Google Chromebook which is running Chrome OS as its operating system.  However, I have several programs and games which require a Windows-based operating system to run that I would like on it.  That said, I am wondering if it is possible to completely wipe or format the Chromebook and start over by installing Windows 10 and loading all of the necessary Windows 10 hardware device drivers on it.  

         If more specific information about the Chromebook is needed such as its model number, please let me know and I will furnish it right away.  

         Thank you.
