  1. Are there any laptops that have at least 1080p, a big hard drive, and at least 4 USB TYPE a ports (this seems to be the hard part to find). Every laptop I have seen has at most two USB TYPE a ports.
  2. I am trying to install windows 10. I do not have internet at the location of the computer I am trying to install windows 10. Unfortunately the i do not have internet option is missing. How do I get it to come back?
  3. I have a hard drive that is about to die. It is the hard drive for my OS. It has given me 7 good years so I think I got my moneys worth. I obviously want to get my data off of it. So what is the best way to do this with hopefully as little strain as possible on it? Do I want to just load the OS then straight copy and paste to an external HD or a big flash drive? I have a couple of massive flash drives. I usually use my external HD's just trying to think of all my options. Do I want to load up a live cd and copy and paste that way so there is less OS strain on the HD? Use another computer to create an image? Is there some better option I am not thinking of?
  4. When you have multiple monitors their is a way to move your metro to another monitor/screen. How do you do this? I sometimes do this by accident but can never figure out how I do this. Is there both a keyboard and mouse way to do this? Guessing I am pressing some keyboard combination.
  5. I am having trouble getting my Windows 8 computer to connect to WiFi. Can I please get some suggestions on how to fix this?
  6. I apologize if this is something easy. I have never used a patch panel before. No matter what I try I am not able to get an internet connection through the patch panel. This is a panduit dp5e patch panel. I have tried running a cable from the router to patch panel. I have tried running a cable from the switch to the patch panel. Neither method work. I have noticed that the lights do not turn on either way. Is this patch panel supposed to have some kind of power supply for the lights? I do not see a way to plug it in. Am I missing some part I need? The router and switch both work fine.
  7. I am not able to use the Windows find. I followed this tutorial to rebuild my index. This did not help. https://www.geeksinphoenix.com/blog/post/2013/02/24/Search-for-files-and-folders-faster-in-Windows-8-with-Indexing-Options.aspx After that I followed this tutorial. This made it worse. I was able to find some files previously. Now I am not able to find any files. https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/windows-8-1-search-can-t-find-files-607534/ What do I want to do next?
  8. What are the steps you need to take when you put an old HD in a new computer? I just did this. Every time it makes it to the windows boot screen then restarts. I have a bunch of old engineering software that is not compatible with the newer versions of windows. I figured this out after I bought a new computer and tried to add the software to a newer version of windows. So I figured I could just swap the HD's. This does not seem to be working either. Is there some way to set the new HD as a master and the old drive as a slave and boot that way maybe?
  9. How do I check the temperature? The only way I know to do that is to use a program like Everest or check in the bios. It cuts off to fast for me to do that.
  10. My desktop computer is only turning on for a few seconds after that it turns off. I assumed it was the power supply so I bought another one. Last night I installed the power supply. It took awhile with me reseating everything and taking out the cmos battery to get the computer running. After that I used it for about an hour. I went home and came back to the office the next day. Unfortunately it reverted back to the behavior of only turning on for a few seconds after that it turns off. Can I please get some suggestions on what to do?
  11. How do you copy files sequentially? Does Robocopy copy files sequentially?
  12. I want to backup my data. I do not care about the windows file. I just want my work, movies, and music. I have about 600 GB of work, movies, and music so a bit worried about fragmentation if I just copy and paste.
  13. Are there any recommended methods for Backing up an entire HD? Will just copying and pasting the entire HD lead to fragmentation?
  14. Whats a COA? I bought this Toshiba laptop at best buy so I do not understand what the problem is.
