A tablet computer is a mobile computer with a touchscreen display, circuitry, and battery in a single device. Tablets come equipped with sensors, including cameras, a microphone, and an accelerometer, and the touchscreen display uses the recognition of finger or stylus gestures replacing the usage of the mouse and keyboard. They usually feature on-screen, pop-up virtual keyboards for typing. Tablets may include physical buttons for basic features such as speaker volume and power, and ports for network communications and battery charging. Tablets are typically larger than smartphones or personal digital assistants.

USB port intermittently and repeatedly fails.

When I go into Device Manager, 'USB Composite Device' typically will have a yellow exclamation mark.

I have tried right clicking and updating it, but I am always told the most up-to-date driver is installed.

I then right click and 'uninstall' it, reboot, and everything returns to normal again until the next time...which is usually within 1-2 weeks.

I do typically connect this to a DisplayLink pluggable 3.0 USB docking tower. However, this is a company machine and we all do the same with the docking tower and I seem to be the only one having this repeat issue.

Thanks for any suggestions. - JH

Over mobile and using CSS, how can I put a white border around where it says "Make an Impact Today". I can get it to work over desktop but not over smaller devices like phones and tablets. Here is the url... http://ccdenver33.staging.wpengine.com/get-involved/

Any ideas experts?

I'm having a problem with my Poloroid P900 tablet.  I can't seem to get the time to change.  I tried changing the time in settings, but it won't change.

We are creating an adaptive CSS layout for varying resolutions as well as web, mobile, tablets, etc.

I notice that when I load the page with my Display Scale and Layout at 100%, it loads as designed.

But if I change my Display Scale to a different size, such as 125%, it doesn't resize it to fit, instead it just makes it larger and throws things off the size of the page.

Is there something we're missing in our CSS that accounts for the Display Scale?

ASP.NET, VB.NET, CSS.

Thanks!

We are looking at a few Windows tablets, mainly
1. Samsung Galaxy TabPro S
2. Lenovo Miix 510
3. Acer Switch 3

Q1:
Does the Windows comes built-in with a Windows Firewall?   Planning to use it for customers to generate
e-Tickets at counter when they touch it but we want to filter it such its open ports are accessible only to
certain designated IP

Q2:
Can we harden it?  Is a tablet's Windows 10 the same as normal PC's Windows 10?

Q3:
Can we install AV and whitelisting tool (from McAfee) on tablets' Windows 10?

Q4:
What about patching?  Is it the same as normal PC's Win 10 patching or there are
special security patches (ie from Acer, Samsung, Lenovo) or the patches are from
MS ?

Hi,

I've just bought my first Kindle. I've read through the instruction book that comes loaded on it, however I have 3 questions:

01 - I plan to highlight various areas of books and make a lot of notes about various things in books, so that i can get back to them at a later stage... is it possible to sync these notes and highlights to an online account so that if i lose my Kindle or change to a new one, i don't lose my highlights and notes?

02 - When i turn off the Kindle, i still see an image on the screen... is there a better way to turn it off that just pressing the ON / OFF button once?

03 - How can I favourite books that I like on Amazon (web / desktop), and get them to appear on my Kindle?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Ok, I have a bunch of HP Elite x2 tablets with fingerprint readers.  Once I join them to the domain the fingerprinter reader "windows hello" goes gray and they can't use them.  I can't find a GPO on my 2016 server to enable biometrics to allow these to work.  Anyone run into this and find a solution??  HP was of no help.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

Have inserted a 32GB microSD card in my Samsung Tablet GT-P5210 running Android 4.4.2
Card shows ok, and I'm able to create new folders on the sd card.
Files copied to the card when card is connected directly to my PC works well, and files are accessed without problems.

When trying to copy files from external sources (a Win PC), using a file manager on the Tab, I get an error message on the Tab, saying no access.
Have tried two different file managers, and both show the same. Error message also say something about rooting.
Copying from the tab's internal memory to the sd-card works well. Creating new folders on the sd-card also works well.
Any ideas how to fix this?

Some HTML5 / Bootstap web pages started getting very dark background and unreadable reported by customers. On Samsung Tablets using chrome browser.  

Multiple Samsung tablet users reported this problem starting. I don't believe it is a change on our end as they pages have not been changed. They work fine on Samsung Note 8 which I have. I don't have Samsung tablet to test. The pages are fine with  all browsers for desktop and other devices as far as I know.

Please help me understand and fix how I can adjust the html / css to fix this. Or is a plugin misbehaving? I am not sure. Sorry I am not super-technical but know enough.

Here are two examples of the pages getting the dark backround on Samsung tablets

Is there any way of upgrading an ASUS Transformer TF 101 Android v 4.0.3 tablet to a more recent firmware or software version?

I purchased this tablet back in 2012.

When I go into the system settings and try to update the firmware I am told that there are no firmware updates available.

Are there any other options available for updating this tablet to a more recent version?

Hello,

Recently our internet bandwidth has been slowing down drastically. We are suspecting certain staff are streaming music or video during the working hours either on smart devices, tablets or possibly company computer within the network. We would like to know if there are any recommended solution or network bandwidth monitoring tool out there that we can use to perform a test on our network.

Thanks,

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Windows 7 Basic

This introductory course to Windows 7 environment will teach you about working with the Windows operating system. You will learn about basic functions including start menu; the desktop; managing files, folders, and libraries.

Hi Friends.
I need some advice, but please do if you have any experience.
I need to install Driver E-Log on 10 tablets and handle it to my company drivers.
My boss request is to lock any other apps, preventing drivers to use internet
I went to Google PlayStore and I've found a lot of apps and I've tested 10
The problem is that any of this apps not locking itself (except Perfect Applock) so anyone can go to settings, or if settings are locked too, they can put finger on this applock app and uninstall will shows up. So bottom line anyone can uninstall app, so they can go to internet finally.

Perfect Applock has option to self lock to prevent shot down but this setting can be disable in Settings and settings is not protected, so bottom line useless.

So maybe someone of you using some AppLock app on Android and can suggest me one, that is going to lock apps I select and is going to lock itself and without password no one will be able to uninstall it.
 

Thank You in Advance.

I cannot get the Windows Surface Pro to turn on.  It did yesterday once for 3 seconds but it turned back off.  I have had it plugged in overnight but still cannot get the unit to turn on.  I have held down the button for 30 Seconds.  I have held down the volume and power for 30 seconds.

I'm not sure how it should act, but when I plug in the power connector, the light flashes, then turns solid (it stays white).  Suggestions?

I've just bought one of the above in the Amazon UK black friday sale to give me to my elderly father to look at some photos and videos etc.

Amazon have told me that because I bought a version that came with an offer, it comes with a light version of bloatware that shows offers etc.

Anyone know I can remove it without having to pay Amazon?

Hi
I have a surface, not sure if it's a pro 2 or pro 3 or what.
However, it's being a huge pain cause I can't get the cover keyboard to work on the surface.

At one point, it wasn't working, I uninstalled the HID kybd device, restarted, did update and security and it found updates and started to work. Now after the weekend. It's not working again. I tried the same, with no luck.

Looking under device manager, hidden devices, I see a
"Surface type cover filter"  indicating error code 45, device not connected. But it is and was working.. also tried other cover kybds.

Was hoping someone has some expert advice on this matter.

I have also tried the holding the pwr and vol up to get into firmware.

I this it's mis reading my surface cover as a regular kybd and seeing the surface kybd as not connected

This is probably non IT sort of question. My ThinkPad Lenovo Yoga P40 laptop screen is too glossy and therefore
everytime I am working on it, no matter any background color or windows, I can see strong reflection like a mirror on this laptop screen. Meaning I can see myself which is very distracting to me.

I was wondering if any one know of any screen protector or matt sort of sheet that I can use to reduce this reflection. Making the screen brighter makes a little bit difference but still pretty annoying to me for constantly seeing my own image like a mirror.

Screen res is set to 2560 X1440 which is recommend.

Screen specs:   14.0" (355mm) FHD (1920x1080), anti-glare, LED backlight, IPS,
250 nits, 16:9 aspect ratio, 700:1 contrast ratio

My Dell Latitude laptop E5570 had no issues.
