Laptop computers are portable, personal computers designed to be used on the lap. Questions about laptop computers, laptop manufacturers, and laptop technologies belong here.
The straight and simple answer is no. Laptops are not akin to desktops in which they can be upgraded as one wishes. The integrated graphics in your Toshiba is the best you will get from that machine internally. The only other option you have is an external video adapter which attaches through USB but you will not get high-performance graphics out of that to a level at which you can play a game, for example… Read More
It's probably part of the Power On Self-Test (POST) function that computers do when the power switch is pressed. When you first switch on a computer, it performs a self-test (POST) to make sure the hardware is working, and the operating system software is started. As part of POST - it also checks things like cameras, disk-drives etc are also working.
Toshiba is better. HP often has problem with cooling system.
If you mean an onscreen keyboard you already have one. In Windows simply bring up the Run dialog box and type osk.exe and hit enter. You can also turn it on by clicking Start then All Programs then Accessories then Ease of Access then On-Screen Keyboard. On a Mac simply open System Preferences and click Keyboard then the Keyboard Tab. Check the box next to "Show Keyboard & Character Viewer in menu bar. Now click… Read More

Below are the steps to use built in camera: 1. Click on the Start tab on the main desktop screen. 2. A list of options will appear in a drop-down window. 3. Click Dell Webcam from the list of options in the window and the… Read More
It depends on what you mean. If you are talking about having the two machines set up in the same room and just running a VGA or other video cable between them, the answer is that you will not get to do so. The reason being that the video ports on laptops are output, not input. Now, having said that, if you mean to ask about sharing your desktop such as in a remote access… Read More
It depends on the type of the laptop. Maplestory also has the requirement of having at least 4 GB RAM to play smoothly.
i got a new laptop yesterday it was the floor model. when i turn it on the screen is black and where the tab's go is purple (in chrome). I opened word documents and the page that should be white was black and the top was purple, all the writing was white with some in neon green, when i run the mouse over anything it is highlighted neon blue. everything appears to work but i… Read More
If F8 is confirmed correct key and not working the recovery partition may be damaged or not there. You will have to buy a DVD from the manufacturer or download the installation boot tool from Microsoft and manually activating it and install hardware drivers.
Yes you can, now everything is available in market. So you can purchase all the parts from the market and assemble to build a laptop.
I'd say one of the best laptops for school is a Dell XPS. But it's a litter higher in price. Other than that a Dell Inspiron 7000 would get the job done and is cheaper. Either that or look for a laptop with at least an Intel i3 processor. Anything lower than an i3 will take forever to load applications, turn on, etc.
In my professional experience, Toshiba laptops are not very reliable. Unless you are going to leave it sitting in one location most of the time (such as at home or at work as a space-saving replacement for a desktop computer), it would be best to buy another brand with my preference being Lenovo, Acer, or HP. Brands to avoid like the plague are Dell and Gateway. Now about this specific model, problems I find with… Read More
It is competitive market everyday comes new things in the market. You can search on ebay and amazon and compare the price and features they provide. But now Asus x series laptop is cheapest laptop which comes with windows 8.
You can probably download phone apps to a standard laptop, but they won't be able to run because the laptop CPU and OS are incompatible with the smartphone CPU and OS that the apps were coded for. But if you had them on the laptop and then downloaded them from the laptop to the smartphone, they would run on the smartphone.
There's no mention of an SD card slot on the D630 user's manual.
The optical drive is a device that allows computer and other data to be written and read using an optical method, usually a laser. This is different from a computer disk drive, or hard drive, or tape drive which stores data magnetically and uses magnets to read and write data. It is also different from a usb stick (thumb drive) or SD card that stores, reads, and writes data electronically into the device's stored memory… Read More
If you mean RAM memory, I'd say it's plenty for most purposes.
Yes. The only exception is whether you are able to ghost the image from the former hard drive to the new hard drive successfully. In that case, no formatting is necessary as that is resolved in the ghosting process. If you wish more details or have further questions, feel free to drop me a line.
Assuming you mean in the hard drive usually from 200Gb to 2Tb.
Considering that new Macbook Pro's are starting more than $1,000; your best option would be to search eBay or amazon and filter results to less than $500. You will not find a new one within that price range.
Control-F14 (but not all Mac Applications recognize it)
Depending on the age (and type) of keyboard - it could be dirt between the contacts preventing the circuit completing - or a worn membrane (they don't last forever !)

You need a Li-ion 14.8V 8 cell battery. Different battery suppliers use different part numbers and offer different Ah ratings. Check with your battery supplier to make sure it is mechanically correct.
Unfortunately we cannot make recommendations as we do not know either your requirements nor budget.
This could be attributable to a number of things: registry errors, outdated video driver, lack of free hard drive space, lack of installed RAM or a bad stick of RAM, obsolete CPU, etc. If you have previously been able to run an online game such as League of Legends but can no longer, check the current minimum system specifications to insure that your CPU remains in the list of supported CPUs. Most laptops have low-power… Read More
Computers have successively shrunk in size as miniaturized electronics improved. the earliest computers (vacuum tube) occupied several large equipment racks and weighed several tons. the transistorized computers of the late 1950s and early 1960s rapidly reduced this. the original DEC PDP-8 transistorized computer introduced in 1965 can be considered the first desktop computer, it was roughly the size of a compact refrigerator and weighed over 150 pound, but would fit on a desktop or table… Read More
It is supposed to-all computers do but make sure fans work when it comes back on.
Solid State Drives are faster and more reliable than conventional hard drives, as they don't contain any moving parts and are completely digital.
You will need an external USB CD player.
You don't as they are not designed to be fixed. Just buy a new replacement. They can be found for under $15 online.
The same way any other electronic device does.
Let me say that my answer is that it is a personal choice of every parent and/or prospective teenaged owner. As a professional, I am always glad to sell what the customer wants and I will not make any judgements about whether one is too young for such technology. Now, on a personal level, I shall say that I feel that a laptop is a tool, just like a cellular phone, so whether a teenager… Read More
Difficult to put a set figure on the lifespan of a laptop battery... It depends on how it's used while charging/discharging. If it's used properly - it should last at least three to five years before needing to be replaced.
I found an old laptop internal mic laying around in my shed is there any way i can connect that to a wire and make it and external mic?
LCD screens are relatively light weight, flat and require relatively less power than CRT screens.
Simply put, you need a microphone and a camera. The camera and microphone can even be built into your computer or phone or a standalone unit.
Unfortunately, your A8 processor is not upgradable, as FT3 Socket (BGA769) processors are soldered directly to the motherboard, and are not removable.
We cannot and do not diagnose your computer problems remotely. Take it to an engineer.
I would do some research into a capture device which has no delay time.

You will have to evaluate your own computing requirements against what is on the market and your budget. No one else can make this decision for you.
Sorry, but no. Not unless you have a very sophisticated soldering station at which you can remove the old processor and install a new processor directly to the motherboard of the laptop. The only option that a typical technician has is to replace the entire motherboard and the replacement board would have the same processor installed, so if your idea is to gain additional processing power by upgrading, you would have no advantage in doing… Read More
Unfortunately most currently available laptops are not designed to be customized after leaving the factory. Many offer a variety of factory installed options (e.g. microprocessor, memory, internal disk, video GPU, external video port) that you can select when you order the laptop.
HP CoolSense is a feature in some HP laptops that combines hardware, software, and mechanical design to dynamically manage the temperature of the laptop. It keeps the laptop both within it operational temperature limits and prevents the outside of the case from becoming uncomfortably warm.
Those without at least one would be a rarity
My knowledge with all of this cable technology stuff is sort of limited, so bear with me. I have the Asto A40 headset that came with the following cables: 3.0M Toslink optical cable (connect to console or PC for audio) USB Power Cable (connect to any USB port for power or connect to PS4 or PC for chat and power) A40 inline mute cable (connect to headset) PC Headset Y-Adapter (connect to A40 console cable… Read More
No one here can decide that for you, it is up to you and your budget.
There are infinitely many. In fact there are infinitely many is which just one key is used. For example, a, aa, aaa, aaaa, aaaaa, and so on. If repetition is not allowed, then a 104 key windows will give rise to 2^104-1 = approx 2.03 * 10^31 (or 20. 3 nonillion) combinations.
No, it is a laptop. You could trade it in and buy a tablet, if that is what you want.
The first thing is to check your BIOS settings to verify that they correctly specify the bootstrap.
That means your OS is faulty. This happens due to unusual shutdowns or changes in some hardware or software. Viruses can also cause this. You are required to use your OS CD like Windows CD ,Unix or Linux CD depending on which Os you were using and then carry out repairs. I will tell about the most probable platform " Windows" . Insert disc and boot the system using the CD by looking at the… Read More
The same as you do on a desktop, running the same operating system and application.
Of course they can, laptops are used worldwide just like any other computer is.
If you are saying to take it out of a laptop and put it in a desktop computer, then no. Laptop processors (as far as I have seen) are soldered into the motherboard, and designed only for motherboards for laptop sizes. Which in that case, it isn't possible to use a laptop processor in a desktop PC.
No, all your faxes are stored in your email account waiting for you to retrieve them. You don't need to leave your computer on to receive faxes.
Most frequently, this is a problem with a driver, bad charging cord, or incompatible device. You might also make sure that the port you are attempting to use is at least USB 2.0 if not USB 3.0. Admittedly, all USB ports manufactured in the past few years have been USB 2.0 at a minimum but if you have an older computer, you may have only USB 1.1 and that could be what is causing you… Read More
Someone who expects to carry their laptop with them, possibly from their home to their office, for example, will favour a laptop. A desktop computer takes up more space than a laptop - which could also influence the choice made between the two. On top of that, if you need to work on work in various locations then you may favor a laptop.
Because scientists have not yet managed to design laptops which will store and process information using steam or wind!
I hate to break it to you, but for that price you're not really going to get much. If you increased your budget a bit to like $300 then you can get something for light gaming.
Sleep mode uses less electricity than running mode.
Whats the problem? If you can't identify it, buy a new one.

I will not restrict you with my answers rather just tell you the things that you should focus on while buying the laptop you want. For Video editing a laptop with larger video memory like 2 to 4 GB will be good. A multi core processor. Dual cores of Intel are good but it will be better if you can get a quad or Octa core processor. Make sure the viewing angle of screen is… Read More
The technology used to 'minimise' many of the components so they fit into a lap-top size case can be very expensive for businesses to use or buy. Their only option - is to pass on those costs to the customer.
It may be that you have a slow processor and ram, or there is lots of junk files and stuff on the computer that is slowing it down. It may help to reset it in the menu before Windows starts up.
Consult the manufacturer's documentation for how to extend battery life on a given laptop. Things will differ. From what I have seen in the documentation I have read it does nothing either way to remove the battery, unless you swap in a fully charged one. (I have a couple of laptops that I do exactly this, I have 2 batteries for each so I can swap in the fully charged one, then when both are… Read More
It will be difficult, if at all possible. Cortana arrived with Windows 10 and likely embedded within the operational software.
No - if you're using a laptop at home, it's better to unplug the battery and run it from the mains adaptor. You should only run the laptop form the internal battery when there's no main supply present .
I would advise you to own up to your responsibility by writing a note that you accept that you are personally liable for the damage and wish to do the right thing of getting the laptop fixed or at least reimbursing the company for repairing the laptop if they elect to get it fixed themselves so as to get it back in service for the operation of their business in short order. While the damage… Read More
Very simply all you need to do is purchase a USB dual-band wireless adapter. Many are made but I have found the most successful for my clients has been the TP-Link TL-WDN3200. It costs only about $25, so very inexpensive to acquire. Once you get it, just install the driver and away you go. One bit of advice, though: make sure that you disable the integrated wireless radio in your laptop so that the only… Read More
I can't send a zip file from my ipad to my laptop, and i can't change the file extension. I have tried everything and I can't send the file from my ipad to my laptop. I have also used all of my emails; @gmail.com and @outlook.com.
Speaking as a professional who has seen spills on laptops and desktops from clients over the course of my career, I would say that the likelihood is minimal. If the liquid were corrosive, then there is a chance that the residue from the dried liquid would have continued to cause damage over time but that is not common in household or most office settings. Most likely, the failure you have experienced so longer after the… Read More
One of the most common reasons for a slow computer are programs running in the background. Remove or disable any TSRs and startup programs that automatically start each time the computer boots.
Yes, as long as you have the correct drive on your laptop.
John the Ripper is free software for password cracking which was initially designed for the Unix Operating System. At present, it can keep running on 15 Operating systems which includes 11 different versions of UNIX, Win32, DOS and BeOS. It has the potential to combine several password crackers into a single package which has made it one of the most popular cracking tools for hackers.
Super Computer - A computer is a general purpose programmable machine which carries out arithmetic and logical operations according to a specified set of instructions. Supercomputers are types of computers which possess the best processing capacity, and therefore are expensive than other types of computers. Laptop - A laptop computer, sometimes called a notebook computer by manufacturers, is a battery- or AC-powered personal computer generally smaller than a briefcase that can easily be transported and… Read More
It may be - that the case is used by more than one manufacturer. This means it's cheaper to mass produce the casing, then simply stick on a company logo - rather than go to the extra expense of making cases with the logos embedded in them.
Install the "skype" application and follow the instructions.
Levono is a good quality brand. I own a Lenovo thinkpad laptop, it's amazing. Lenovo Thinkpad is legendary for its reliability.
Depends on the game. the game should have a button to click making it full screen. If not try to left click and drag the screen to each side. Or click the 3rd button from the left on the top left to make it full screen if it is visible. If none of that works then you may not be able to make it full screen.
Start with your immediate supervisor, and you're going to need to get a police report on it, as well.

Laptop Display's key specifications- Screen Size - Think seriously about how much screen size you really need, because a large screen will feel much less portable. Screen Resolution - Resolution is the other critical factor determining how much information you will be able to see on your laptop's screen. Selecting a higher resolution will allow you to see more text on your screen but it will be smaller. The limiting factor is the maximum resolution… Read More
Speaking as one who diagnoses these issues on a regular basis, I concur with others that there could be multiple issues but I dissent with the potential causes. First, yes, the AC adapter itself (the device that is affectionately referred to as a "brick on a leash") could be at fault and generally the problem is not the voltage (so a multimeter used in the typical fashion will not reveal the problem) but instead is… Read More
It sounds to me like you may have a problem with your AC adapter not supplying adequate amperage. If this is the original AC adapter that came with the laptop, then it may need replacement. If, on the other hand, this is a universal, then it could be that the tip you have installed is not firmly seated into the end of the cable. Remove the tip and try reseating it and see if that… Read More
The battery charging system of diverse electronic devices may get confused over time, in the sense that it doesn't keep track correctly of how much charge the battery has. In such cases, it sometimes helps to take the battery out and put it back in again.If that doesn't help, I would consult with a technician.
You log onto Kik using a laptop exactly the same way you would log onto Kik with a desktop, netbook, tablet, or any other computer.
The same way you would install such software on a desktop, netbook, tablet, or any other computer. There is nothing special about installing software on a laptop.
Assuming "this" is a program, most laptops have a CD/ROM drive that can be used to install same. One can also download off the internet either using a wired or wi-fi connection. Also used are thumb drives and/or other portable media storage devices.
Maybe, maybe not. Usually a computer manufacturer designs a laptop docking station for one specific model of laptop or a small group of laptop models.
The Lenovo ThinkPad E555 20DH002TUS features an attractive build that may seem dated to some and while it features decent entry-level gaming performance.
None. The clamshell around the screen is not designed to support weight such as that from even a single laptop being placed on top of it. While one may occasionally get away with doing so, there is no guarantee that the non-weight-bearing structure of the case will protect the LCD screen from damage due to the added weight. The case is designed only to contain the parts necessary to deliver the video input and output… Read More
If you have a local Batteries+Bulbs store, they have or can get them for you. They can also be ordered from many online stores.
I'm a student looking for a laptop that will run solidworks. I need it to be under £1000 and be 'future proof' as I plan to use it for the next 4 to 5 years. thanks
