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.

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?

I have Scansnap's desktop scanner http://www.fujitsu.com/us/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/ix500/ 

I have the requirement to scan to pdf and email at the same time.  The ScanSnap can do this, however, it requires using a desktop email client.  My requirement is to have the ability to scan,pdf and email without using the user's email client as everybody is on web mail.

One option is to save the pdf's to a folder and then listen for new files to hit a folder and email via smtp.  For this request, I am looking for suggestions on a desktop scanner that can do this. I have the ability for this function on a larger multi function device, but need desktop.

I have a SSD M.2 PCIe 3.0 NZMe drive that I need to connect to my laptop externally. My laptop has a Type-A USB 3.0 port and a USB-C port.  Either is fine, I just need it connected.

 I understand that without using Thunderbolt 3 I may not get the same transfer rate, but at this point I just want a connection.

What do I need?

I am thinking that if I get a 12- or 16- port USB hub, I can connect two or three different PCs via USB to the hub, then connect out from the hub to three or four USB peripherals and each PC will be able to use all the peripherals (a printer, external hdd, and recording device), am I right? Will I need to plug only one USB cable from each PC into the hub or one for each peripheral, meaning three per PC if there are three peripherals? Any other problems to solve to make this work?

I'm looking for the best way to set up the following:

1. I have two laptops, one a work laptop (Dell Ultrabook) and a Personal laptop (Alienware 13").
2. i would like to have two monitors, one for each which I know is easy enough, but I would like to be able to use one external keyboard and mouse that i could switch back and forth between.
3. I imagine I will need some kind of docking station, and perhaps a KVM switch, but what I don't want is for both screen to go to one computer. I want each screen independent at all times to each laptop.

Thanks for any advice
