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.

Are the power supply to SATA hard drive power cables the same for both the Corsair AX1200i and Thermaltake TGB1200W power supplies?

Is it safe to interchange these power supply cables between the two power supplies?

Is it possible to detect when a user inserted an USB storage device and get notified by email or SMS?

I'm not looking for a solution which is blocking the usage of this device, just get notified.

Note: We are using PC's with Windows 10 mostly, and maybe some Windows 7.  All Home Edition, not pro and not on domain either.

The solution can be a software that we buy, or even C# code... anything useful and afordable.

Thanks you

Providing users with HP Chromebook 14 G5's for agile working. Need USB-C docks with dual HDMI and charging. Loads out there but not so specific on whether they support Chrome OS or not. Can anyone point me to a device they have successfully used with Chrome OS and ideally the HP Chromebooks.

I got this Tenvis camera from my storeroom about 6-8 years back which looks very much like T8810
(a bit like T8809) :
https://www.tenvis.com/product/Specific?m=t8810

I think the model I have is probably obsoleted so I can't download any software for it.
Anyone can try to walk me through to get it working again?  I read a few links but was
completely confused:

It could still power up & rotate

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?

Hi,

We have a Sky Q (2TB) box connected via HDMI cable to our Denon AVR X4300.

Our Denon AVR X4300 is connected via a HDMI cable to HDMI 1 port (HDMI 2.0) of our Iiyama PROLITE TE8668MIS-B1AG display.

We were setting up the 4K/ UHD channels on the Sky Q box and wished to set the colour resolution to 10-bit 2160p for TV shows and movies.

Setting Sky to 10-bit 2160p did not work and we had to use 8-bit colour resolution as an error message from Sky said that the colour settings were not set with the display for 10-bit colour resolution.

Iiyama told me that there was no settings to be configured for the display and that the display is set to 10-bit colour resolution and 4K and that a direct connection from Iiyama display to Sky box would work.

What would be the best way of testing the connection between the Sky Q (2TB) box, Denon AVR and Iiyama display to find out what is causing the problem.

Thanks,
Robbie

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 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

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.
