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.

Five years ago I purchased Kingston server RAM with the following specs:

Kingston ValueRAM 16GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Registered DDR3 1600 Server Memory (Intel Validated ) Model KVR16R11D4/16I

I understand that this RAM is no longer being made and it is now becoming increasingly difficult to find this RAM.

What model of Kingston RAM has replaced this model of memory and will be fully compatible within an Intel S2600cp server system board that already contains 8 sticks of this RAM?

I need to purchase 8 more sticks of this RAM that will be used on the same Intel S2600cp server system board and I need to make sure that both types of RAM are fully compatible and work without any problems for a Server 2016 Data Center OS that will be running on this server system board.

I'm looking for a high quality PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports that will be fully compatible with an Intel S2600cp server board running Server 2016 DataCenter.

I had previously been running Server 2012 & then Server 2012 R2 on this Intel S2600cp server board (for five years) with a low quality PCI Express USB 3 card and there were no problems.

However, once I installed Server 2016 the Server OS would always bluescreen until I pulled out this low quality PCI Express USB 3 card. Without this card installed Server 2016 runs fine.

I still need to have a PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports connected to this server and need to be sure it is on this server boards Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) and that it won't cause any issues or bluescreens.

Please provide me with a list of PCI Express USB 3 card with 4 USB 3 ports that will do this.

Hi Everyone,

I have a Zebra 2844 label printer installed on a workstation as  a through the network as: \\MACHINE_NAME\LABEL_SHARE_NAME.

I use this label printer to print UPS shipping labels.

Now this user also has a web-based software that could utilize the same Zebra printer but with different drivers.

Is it possible to do this with the network shared printer?

I was able to do this successfully with another user who has the same printer installed locally to his machine via USB. I used one USB port for each driver. I haven't figured out how to do this through the network.

Is it even possible?...If yes, how?

Appreciate any help!!

I have a Canon imageCLASS MF726CDW color laser printer. It recently began wrinkling the paper and smearing the ink in a certain spot on every page. See the attached image. The smear extends the full length of the page where there is nearby ink. The document is also wrinkled slightly along the smear, though that is hard to see from the attached image.

This issue happens on every page regardless of whether it is color or just black & white. I've also tried swapping out the toner cartridges for new ones and they issue persists.

I am, admittedly, not using genuine Canon ink cartridges, though I have been using the same brand of generics for several toner cartridges and have not had this issue before.

I've confirmed the paper tray guides are in the appropriate position and not pushing the paper in too tight.

The printer is approximately 1 year old and the page count is at 15,400 (50% of which is color and 50% is B&W). I have not done any maintenance on it other than replacing toner cartridges.

I currently use Apple Magic Trackpad with a Lenovo 8" tablet (Android 5.1) for a customized field Astronomy setup. I'm looking for a very specific size and resolution (7.75" to 8",  1024x768 ) to replace the current tablet, but have found that Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility is spotty at best. Compatibility varies not just within versions of Android but also within point versions and also manufacturers. I'm trying to find a method to predict Bluetooth Apple Magic Trackpad compatibility within a certain device without having to actually have the device in my possession to test it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I have a check scanner that I am trying to install on a Windows 10 64-bit company.  The program that I need to install is PassportWebClient and as part of that program the drivers for the scanner are installed.  The program will install, but it gets to the end, where it should install and I get an error "The installation has aborted" and it does not install the drivers.  I have a Windows 10 32-bit machine that allows installation without a problem.  So, my question is, is there anyway to somehow figure out a way to install the program as if it was on a 32-bit machine?

Hi,
Is there any risk of interference when using 50 wireless keyboard/mice in an open office environment?
Could any of the mice/keyboards control the wrong computer?

Almost half of the time the left-click of the mouse just don't left-click as it supposed to.  

  • When Dragging, we left-click it, hold it and drag - half the way it release the "left-click" when we actually didn't release it in the mouse.  
  • When Highlighting or Marking in order to cut or select items, it stops half way like if we release the left button of the mouse.

Super annoying.

In order to work, we have to "really" press the left button of the mouse harder - that makes it work.

We have Windows 10 Pro latest updates and a Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Bluetooth mouse.

Note, we have connected a cable mouse on the computer and same reaction, so it is not the Microsoft Bluetooth mouse (maybe?)

How can we solve this?

I'm looking for a setup that will allow me to control two separate Windows 10 computers with a single mouse. This way I can move the mouse between the monitors connected to the different computers and whenever I click on something the click will be registered with the computer whose screen I am on.

What types of mice allow this to be done?

What are the differences between the Lenovo 20JF000DUS & the Lenovo  20JF000HUS laptops?

Amazon is offering the 20JF000DUS laptop for $1,850.00 (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072JQ277P/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza) while CDW has provided us with a quote for the 20JF000HUS laptop for $2,565.17 (https://www.cdw.com/shop/products/Lenovo-ThinkPad-X1-Yoga-14in-Core-i7-7600U-16-GB-RAM-512-GB-SSD/4571318.aspx?cm_cat=Transactional&cm_ite=SPS_Quote_Confirm-_-Body-_-Browse_Products-_-SpsQuoteConfirmation&cm_pla=EMTRAN046adu0000P0000&cm_ven=Email&etsi=11720788&etsu=451684580).

1. Is there really much of a difference between these two laptops?

2. What is it that makes for 20JF000HUS laptop so much more expensive than the 20JF000DUS laptop?

I have trouble getting my Creative T3150 to become visible on Bluetooth. I turned BT on with my iPhone and my MacBook, and had the Creative T3150 powered on. Yet, it is not visible on my my iPhone not my MacBook.

Is there a step I need to execute on the Creative T3150 to become visible?

Thanks.

I bought a cheap clone toner cartridge and saved a bundle. But, when inserting it into my HP Laser Jet Pro MFP 127fw, not only got a warning that is was not a HP cartridge, also found the page printed was no usable.

There was a row of smudges on the left and a huge unprinted section about one inch from the left side.

Was this inserted by the printer?

Regardless, I wonder if I can simply take the toner from the cheapo cartridge and reload the HP cartridge?

If so, how?

Thanks.
