Peripherals

A peripheral device is defined as a computer device, such as a keyboard or printer, that is not part of the essential computer (i.e., the memory and microprocessor). These auxiliary devices are intended to be connected to the computer and used in conjunction with it. Examples of external peripherals include mouse, keyboard, printer, monitor, external Zip drive or scanner, while internal peripherals include CD-ROM drive, CD-R drive or internal modem. Today's new devices, such as tablets, smartphones and wearable computing devices are considered peripherals as they can be connected and used on a computer system. The difference, however, is that these devices can run independently of the computer system.

Dear experts,

I am planning to buy a ipad  pro12.9inch. The primary purpose for this ipad purchase to make notes (using pencil) and annotate using a keyboard.

In this regard can someone please guide me on purchasing a screen protector which which will withstand the rough scribbling.

Also a ipad pro case cover along with keyboard and pencil holder.

I am aware that Logitech is widely used brand.

I am open to other brands which are equally good.

I will purchase the ipad pro and the accessories in the US. I will be using the ipad during my stay in India and in the UK (most of the time)

Kindly guide.

Thank you

I need a new external drive for a Dell T5810 Precision Workstation running Windows 10 Pro. The external drive is used mostly for onsite data backups. I want a drive in the 2TB to 4TB range.

The T5810 only has USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports. I am willing to add an expansion card – for example, for USB 3.1 ports.

The computer presently has these expansion card slots open:

PCI Express 3.0 x8, 8 GB/s
PCI Express 2.0 x1, 0.5 GB/s
PCI Express 2.0 x4 2 GB/s
PCI 2.3 (32-bit, 33 MHz), 133 MB/s

I want a highly-reliable, reasonably fast external drive.

1. Do you recommend SSD or conventional drive? Why?

2. USB 3.0, USB 3.1 / USB C, or other interface? Why?

3. What brand and model do you recommend? Please include why you recommend it.

Note: this is a follow-up to another thread posted yesterday and located here:

        Identify desktop PC ports

Hello,

Yesterday I posted images of the front of my computer and shown below are images of the back. If someone could identify the ports labeled by letters (and numbers), as well as which of them can be replaced individually if faulty, I'd appreciate it.

By the way, the panel near the top (labeled x in the first screenshot) appears to be removable. What type of component is that designed for?

Also, I've always been curious about the multiple different-shaped (but mostly rectangle) openings in the video card (see 3rd image). Do they have some purpose?

Thanks

Hello,

Can someone help me identify the types of ports shown in the next few screenshots?

I apologize that the images are so blurry but hopefully with the zoomed-in shots each port (with its icon) will be recognizable to a person familiar with the hardware. If possible, I'm also curious to know which, if any, of the ports can be easily replaced if faulty (ie are any of them built into the tower?). The last image is of the side of the tower in case that's helpful. (I'm sure it's obvious that label g is for the DVD drive and needs no comment.)

Thanks a bunch!

Are there any adapters I can purchase that will allow me to connect the front USB connector plug on a "CORSAIR VENGEANCE C70 Mid-Tower Case - Black" computer case to an Intel S2600cp server board?

The plug for connecting the two front USB connectors on this case is different than the connector on the Intel S2600cp server board.

I have attaches pictures below of both the plug for this case as well as the connector on the server board where the front USB connectors should plugin. I have also attached the S2600cp server board manual and the S2600cp server board tech specs guide.

The URL from where I purchased the case from is here.

Please let me know if there are any adapters or converters I can buy that will allow me to connect these two front USB connector cable to this server board.

Exactly which two pins on an Intel S2600cp server board need to be connected to the power switch on the case?

The case I have several Intel S2600cp server boards installed in has a two connector wire connecting the power switch on the front of the case.

I'm trying to figure out which two pins on the server board these connectors need to be plugged into so that I can use the power switch on the front of the case to power the server board on and off.

Which two pins on the server board are for the power switch?

Attached are the manuals and specs guide for the Intel S2600cp server board.

I purchased a "USB3.0 to HDMI Adapter, USB to HDMI Converter with 1080P for Windows 7/8/10 Computer ONLY ( NO MAC / Linux /VISTA)" from Amazon.

The link for this item is here.

No matter which USB port I plug this device into it shows with a yellow exclamation point in device manager and the monitor I have connected to isn't recognized.

I need the Windows 10 64-bit drivers for this device.

According to this device's Amazon page, the drivers can be found by googling "Download - Hoplaza".

However, when I google "Download - Hoplaza" and click on any of the URLs or when I try to go to the http://www.hoplaza.com website the website opens and says "Database error, Error establishing a database connection."

I have posted a question about this on the Amazon website but haven't received any responses yet.

Please provide me with a valid URL address of where I can download the drivers for this device.

Here are the hardware IDs for this device:

USB\VID_1D5C&PID_2000&REV_0200&MI_00

Advanced IP Scanner has icons that represent "Live" and "Not Live". So does Angry IP Scanner. Neither, however, really tell you what "Not Alive"  is. What exactly is "Not Alive" and how is it determined?

We're looking for a way to restrict access to USB ports.  We're deploying a number of new Windows 10 Pro PC's and want to lock them down so ONLY the keyboard and mouse work with the PC's.  Anyone know of a third party application or other way to tie the devices down?

Years ago I made the horrible decision to purchase the a Kodak Printer. The one with the chip that will time out after several months and stop working. While I was using the product I noticed that every time I used it the printer would not work. I thought the cartridge had dried up. The problem of course is the embedded chip was timing out. I relied on it less and less and eventually stopped using it all together. Purchasing the other Printer I the HP LaserJet M1217 MFP nwf which is still broken but may be fixed soon thanks to the forum. Now having found out through youtube videos what the actual problem was and how to solve it. Replace the chip refill the ink cartridges where needed. Most do not need the refill it is just the timeout of the cartridges. I have a different strategy now and many extra cartridges. My question is since the Chip embedded in the cartridge times out with an expiration date or number of expired hours that the PC is on....I leave the PC the Kodak Printer is connected to on 24/7 because it is a server I access remotely and for development.

So can you go into the registry Keys and modify the Chip Timeout Date or Hour as the case may be. I wondered if anyone knew that. I am planning on using the printer more often now that I have faith and found a solution to the issue here at Wal-Mart. Universal Ink Cartridge Refill

If this can be done please let me know. Thank you.

I had this question after viewing Bluetooth Missing from Device Manager in Windows 7.

Im trying to add a Logitech BT headset to my computer for work so I can take my calls on it.  Id like to use the wired LAN at home but when I turn off the wifi on the HP laptop, Bluetooth turns off too.  Not sure why that happens.  BT is showing in Device Manager but not in the systray.  When I switch the default in Sounds, I cant hear anything in the headset.
Any assistance is appreciated.
Thank you,
