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.

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.

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?

hi techs,
I am trying to play videos and pictures from my Note 5 to my Apple TV and suddenly it's not working in the last one year or so. The last time at work successfully was about a year ago and I was using allcast.  this week I've been trying to connect my phone again and no matter what I try my Note 5 will not detect the Apple TV and if some of the apps do list it it will not connect. I also tried my work Android phone which is I think an S7 and it wouldn't connect either. I have reset the network connections several times on both units and tried repeatedly with no success. I'm starting to wonder if Apple has made a change that everybody but me knows about. at this point what I think I'm going to do is buy the Chromecast and plug that in right alongside the Apple TV to see if I can use that to interface with my phone since all of the apps I've downloaded aren't working at all. My Note 5 is up-to-date with the most recent software and the Apple TV is also up-to-date with the most recent software and it is only about one year old. Any assistance with this issue is appreciated.
 thank you

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

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Greetings !
     I have a hybrid environment with vmachines running locally and on the web (Rackspace).  With my current configuration I have a VPN tunnel between both environments.  The problem is when I lose power, my internal servers and peripherals crash and when they are brought back up it is hard to get DHCP services back online, bring up the tunnel,  etc.   Is it possible to set it up where my internal servers fail over to another DHCP server I could set up at Rackspace?  The advantage being that once power is restored they could instantly get leases, etc.  Is this something covered in the 2012 MS server DHCP functionality?  Ultimately I would like to set something up which "takes care of itself".

Thanks,

Eric

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.

Tried two different usb modems US Robotics

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.

can anyone point me in the direction of a policy for use of peripheral devices on company's PC i.e. USB, DVD..etc

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.
