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.

A user would like to connect a Bluetooth keyboard & mouse to her Windows 10 laptop.

The problem is that there are over 12 devices that show up saying that they are unknown when we try to add these Bluetooth devices & we aren't sure which one is the keyboard and which one is the mouse.

What can be done to add the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse to this Windows 10 laptop?

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

We have a  Dell C3765dnf network printer that has a problem with the network cables easily detaching.

We have tried several brand new network cables and none of these network cables stay attached (even if the tab on the network cable is pulled out).

Currently the network cabled attached to this network cable has had to be taped in.

What can be done to fix this issue so we can tightly attach a network cable that won't become detached?

My Samsung Tab A charges fine when the charger is connected to the micro USB port, and my USB scanner device works great when it is connected to the micro USB port.  But since there is only one port, how can I do both simultaneously?  If there is a splitter or other device that will do the job, note that I am fine using micro USB connectors and/or standard USB connectors with the appropriate adapters.

If this can be done, please provide info on what cables, adapters, etc. are needed.  Or if it CAN'T be done, help me understand why not.  TIA

A user's Windows 10 Microsoft Surface computer currently has 8 GB of RAM.

Are we able to upgrade the RAM on this surface to a higher amount?

What is the most RAM that the surface can hold?

Where can we order the RAM from? I have already checked and Crucial.com doesn't carry the RAM for Microsoft Surfaces.

I have 4 regional offices, all of them on one domain.

All sites have the exact same main copier/printer installed at the locations.  Ricoh MPC4504.

What I want to do is when someone logs in is to have the GPO determine which of the 4 regional offices they are logging in from, and map their default printer to that regional office copier.

Since ALL sites have the same copier, the driver is exactly the same.

Is there a way to do this?  If so, how?  

Thank you,
Jeff

We have an APC SURT5000XLI UPS that will not power up.

It just has an illuminated Fault LED, and the 3rd and 4th Battery Level LEDs on. See embedded image.

Can anyone translate what its trying to say? I can't find a fault finding guide anywhere, other than 'engineer required'. Such an engineer scratched his head, and said it needed replacing...

Thanks

What kind of adapter is needed to connect two external monitors to a Lenovo Yoga 720-131kb laptop?

Is it safe to plug 90 watt power adapter directly into a Lenovo T440 laptop?

Or can this power adapter only be used and plugged into a port replicator?

Hi Experts,

I've just purchased a Western Digital Elements 2TB portable USB 3.0 hard drive.  It's advertised as being compatible with WinXP and USB 2.0.

When I plug it into my old HP DC7700 SFF desktop PC running WinXP Pro SP3 (front ports, or rear, all of which are USB 2.0), it shows the expected New Hardware messages next to the systray, and finally says it's installed and ready to use, and I can see it in Device Manager, but not in Explorer, so I don't think I can use it on this PC.
Tried using Device Manager to update the driver from WinXP Pro CD and then from the web, but it says something like there was no better driver found, in both cases.

All the same things happen when I connect it to a Dell Latitude D420 laptop, also running WinXP Pro SP3.

But when I try it on an HP laptop which is running Win10 (also USB 2.0 I think), I see no problems there.

Any suggestions of what could be causing this, and how I should resolve it?

Let me know if you want any screen shots or other info.

Thanks.

Are there any utilities that will tell exactly which type of hardware peripheral cards are being used inside of a Windows 10 computer?

A remote user has several peripheral cards installed within her computer and I would like to get a list of what the model numbers of these peripheral cards are.

I have already tried using utilities such as Belarc but haven't been able to generate such a list.

Are there any programs or utilities that can do this?

I just installed a IOGEAR 2-Port SuperSpeed+ USB 3.1 (gen2) Type-A PCI-Express Card. Only to realize I need more 3.0 ports. I can certainly pull this and replace it with a 4-port card of another brand, but 2-port card is inexpensive and I have 2 extra slots, so I was thinking of getting an installing a second 2-port card, same one. Any technical reason not to do this? Two two-port cards is the same price as a four-port.

I've been using this printer for a long time and rarely have problems with it.
The worst I have to do is tell it what paper is in the Tray 1 feeder.

I am trying to print envelopes from Word 2013.
Well, they print just fine!

But, I have a mail merged word document of nearly 200 envelopes.
I have saved the document so it should now be just a plain Word document with #10 envelope-sized pages.
I have managed to print a few one-off but generally the printer just sits there and says "Ready" and the computer says there are no documents waiting to print.
All I need to do is launch the multi-page print job!!

I do know that there is going to be a message about margins when an envelope print job does work.  But that message isn't popping up on the ones that fail.  A clue?

How?

Hello,

I broke my receiver for my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 5000 (& Mouse Combo).  I ordered a receiver on eBay, but it does not work.  Through extensive research it appears to be that even though it's the same model, it may be running on a different frequency.  Does anyone know of a program to REPROGRAM the receiver so I can connect my trusty Microsoft Keyboard and Mouse?
