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.

I would like to be able to use this Magedok T1116D 1080P FHD Capacitive Touch Portable Monitor shown here http://magedok.com/touch-screen-monitor-t116c as a second monitor for my Windows 10 Microsoft Surface Go device shown here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/surface-go/8V9DP4LNKNSZ/L8M8?activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab.

I would like to be able to either go miracast (wireless) with a device like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07X7FCC1F/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 or wired. Either way would work fine with me.

I have also ordered this device https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DNH2SHR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and I own the standard docking station that works with all the Microsoft Surface units.

I notice that the Microsoft Surface Go device has the proprietary charging port, as well as a usb-c port.

The monitor has a micro-usb port as well as a usb-c port and and mini-hdmi port.

The monitor "appears" that it can only be powered through the usb-c port, but I am not sure of that because just connecting it to the usb-c port on the surface is only enough to power it on, but does not allow the screen to display.

Assistance in figuring out the next step here is greatly appreciated.

Experts, these issues has been driving me crazy....

If I multi select emails in my inbox (ctrl + mouse) click, more often then not all the files will open on me. Same is true with multi files in Explorer
If I click and drag messages to a folder, the act of releasing the button causes it to open that folder
If i double click a message to open it, 1 in 10 times it just disappears and I later find it in the archive folder.

I have replaced both my mouse and keyboard - no help.
I have played with my mouse click speed setting - no help
I often connect remote via RDC and issue still happens

I am at a loss on this...help!

As per my most recent and last question in the forum. I found that the solenoid was loose I fixed that and no more bad prints. This is the same printer the Konica Minolta Magicolor2400W . This new question relates to the printouts by way of the number of prints by page. I attempted to print and the unit printed 10 pages after the first fix from my last forum question with no problem. Went to be thinking great knocked that issue out. I was printing 10 pages to test the front and back of the page printing feature.  The Next day, I come back to my desk and it will print two perfect pages and then it stops goes to error. FYI plenty of paper toner very full and the components solenoids fusers "all snug in there beds"...so to speak. I tried to find the window that shows the error message to identify the problem or error code. No software that shows the Konica Minolta software is listed. So I'am unable to find the Konica Minolta window I need to identify the error code. When I launch Windows Programs and look for any KM software. There is none? . Any thoughts. Got the page printing perfectly now but only two pages out of 10 then error. Makes NO SENSE to me. Can you advise what to check?

I went to the site listed by Nobus below and had the only thing listed which was the driver? Now I am wondering if there is any software I need to have that printer error window come up. Does anyone know if there is some kind of software that shows the functionality of the printer besides the …

Using a ScanSnap s1300i, can different scan jobs be setup so that a scan job can scan to a specific folder, compared to other scan jobs?
For example:

1. Scan Job 1 -   Duplex -  path to scan to is:  C:\Users\user1\Scan
2. Scan Job 2 -  Simples - path to scan to is:  C:\Users\user2\Scan
and so forth.. ?

I need help to set up Windows 10 for Huawei E3372 4G USB dongle in Windows 10.
If I plug the device into the machine I see the Huawei app and can send and receive SMS ok using the app but I cannot figure out how to install drivers to present the AT serial interface so I can send AT commands via serial connection in software (I will be using Visual Studio).

Thanks

I have a Switched Rack AP8941 24-Outlets Pdu and I am trying to find the manual. There was a short circuit and half of the rack of this 24 outlets went down. The breaker on the top went to a off position. I guess this is a safety mechanism.  I am afraid by resetting the breaker, it will reset the whole 24-outlets rack. Any ideas how to do this safely? Thanks

Using a Datalogic Quickscan scanner, we have the default set to carriage return after each scan.  We want to leave it that way.  However, we want to create a barcode so when scanned, it does a carriage return.  The reason is a common application asks for a UPC input first.  Upon scanning it, the next field asks for quantity.  Most of the time, the user selects the default by pressing enter on the keyboard.  We just want to give them the option to scan a "return" barcode without having to touch the keyboard to press enter. Support says we have to turn off the default auto return after scan suffix for this to work.  This would mean the user would have to scan an "enter" barcode after every scan; including UPC.  What I thought would be a simple thing has turned into several dead ends.  Any help is appreciated.

I have a 2017 MacBook Pro running Windows 10 Pro via BootCamp.  The laptop has a 720p camera called "FaceTime HD Camera" which works fine with the Windows 10 Camera app.  It works fine with most webcam enabled sites in Chrome, FireFox and Edge, it works fine with ManyCam.  But it only works when set to 720p.  

If I change the resolution to 640x480, 640x320 or lower, the image just goes black, or in Windows 10 Camera App's case - it also shows a 0x8... error code.

I discovered this because I have to use Adobe Connect for a Uni assignment and I cannot get the camera working in that at all.  Apparently that application supports up to 640x480@20FPS and whilst it detects the FaceTime HD Camera, there is no image when you start the webcam.

Using ManyCam, if you change the video format from 720p to 480p or lower, the camera stops working, change it back and it works fine.

Use a different webcam (eg. Logitech C920 Pro) in 480p or lower with any of the applications or websites and the image is fine.

So whilst using an external camera is a workaround, it would be great to actually have a fix for the issue.  

Any ideas?

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 am currently setting up a training room where I want everything to be automated. I have door style windows on a slanted roof that currently needs to be opened manually. The problem is that the windows are very high, and it is not practical to try and open them manually.

They are side hung escape windows with wooden frames and dimensions 660x1180mm.

I want to convert the windows so they can open automatically, preferably using a remote or voice commands using my SmartThings hub or Amazon Alexa. Would this be possible?

Would you be able to guide me to the type of window opener/actuator that would best suit my window and what else I would need to get to be able to use my SmartThings hub or IFTTT event triggering.

Any solutions would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Robbie

Hello,

We are running into issues with having web cameras hooked up to Wyse Terminals.

Has anyone ever successfully got a web camera setup with a Wyse terminal? When the webcam is plugged into the Wyse terminal states usb device not supported behind a high speed hub. I have tried all of the USB ports on the device but nothing seems to work.

We were able to get the device to show up once but video was choppy.

Any Input/Help would be greatly appreciated.

I am struggling to set up the TWAIN driver for CanoScan 4200F.  My system runs on Win 7 Pro 64.

I have downloaded the Driver file from Canon several times and have run the setup.  It appears the setup runs too fast.  The file is extracted, and installation location is provided, evidently ./ (period and forward slash).  The issue may be that the form where the download directory can be changed or other adjustments to the download made, is hidden during the super quick download.  Once the download and installation is finished, the form closes.

When attempting to scan a project, an error message stating: "Unable to select TWAIN  resource."

NOTE:  I have entered what I think is the correct path in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Temp;C:\Windows\twain_32\CNQ4200 .

This action is recommended on many help sites.  BUT, in my case, this does not resolve the problem.

I'd be grateful for your help in an understandable manner.

Sticky Keys are not turned on and this has only recently been happening but when I use “SHIFT” + any of the number keys for punctuation it only gives me a number as if “SHIFT” was not pressed. Eg. “SHIFT” + “2” should give me “@” but it gives me 2. Yet “SHIFT” + “=” gives me “+” meaning that the shift does work but just not with numbers. Does anyone know what has happened and how I can fix this?

Thanks.
