I bought [Iiyama XB2783HSU-B1DP](http://www.iiyama.com/gb_en/products/prolite-xb2783hsu-b1dp/) monitor. However I'm not able to connect my MacBook Pro 2015 from HDMI with [DisplayPort to HDMI](https://www.alza.co.uk/roline-displayport-hdmi-connection-shielded-2-m-d504901.htm?catid=18848641) cable. From monitor menu I am able to select DisplayPort, but monitor will fail to receive any signal from laptop. I tried to connect monitor with Asus laptop, DisplayPort no signal again, while connection through VGA port works fine. Any advice?

I've had this cable in a drawer for years, and I've never known what it is. Does anybody know what this cable is, or what it goes to? What is this cable? [Mystery Cable](http://imgur.com/a/eGkNv "Mystery Cable")

While they have, in past years, enjoyed glorious recognitino such as the iconic ["Worst Company in America"](http://voices.washingtonpost.com/fasterforward/2010/04/comcast_wins_consumerist_worst.html) award, Comcast isn't letting its data-caps go away anytime soon, and while they have raised some of their caps in some markets, it's apparent the motive of the entire movement is far from bandwidth-related. Last month, Comcast stopped kicking around the idea of [data caps](http://arstechnica.com/business/2012/09/comcast-data-caps-hit-test-cities-range-from-300gb-to-600gb/) and instead pushed it into high gear, launching the capped services in various test markets, with limits ranging from 300GB to 600GB. The caps, designed to help quell bandwidth usage with their customers, seems to be suicidal from …

Continuing the Lord of the Rings theme that I started with in the title of this review, I believe it is Gandalf who says "there is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will. And he does not share power" but he sure wasn't saying it to the One|Cable. It exists to share power between most every kind of mobile device you own, apart from those that have a proprietary charging connector which are not made by Apple. As long as your smartphone, tablet, satnav, MP3 player, Bluetooth headset etc etc accepts either …

I am looking at getting into all this Kinect technology and bringing my ideas to life. I have combed the web for connecting Kinect, yet it seems that they speak of Kinect having a USB and mine doesn't. I got mine in a bundle, it has the 'orange tipped cable' (I couldn't find it's proper name but I do know it's function). By the way, no pun intended.

Hi there everybody! I have a PC which i was pretty happy for, it had Windows Vista on it. But then one day when i turned on the computer, it wouldn't boot up Vista. It came to that part where it shows that loading bar: [code] ___________________ | |||| |||| | ------------------- [/code] and then it wouldn't go longer. I then pressed and the Shut Down button (on the PC of course) and it turned off. Then i started PC again, and saw 4 mystical blue dots under the loading bar, but it still wouldn't turn on. Then i uninstalled …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]18413[/ATTACH]Are all [URL="http://www.hdmi.org/learningcenter/faq.aspx"]HDMI[/URL] cables created equal? Without lab equipment it is difficult to tell the difference between HDMI [or any cables] at short lengths [under 6 feet]. But signals traveling greater distances do degrade and that is a fact. The longer the wire, the greater the resistance and weaker the signal or current on the receiving end. Here is a round-up comparison of a handful of HDMI cables, designed to provide a 1080p picture at the end of a 50 foot run. This is not a very complex and technical review, just a simple test to show what can be …

There is an acknowledged problem with the Samsung NC10 netbook and other of their netbooks. Mine was about 3 months out of warranty. Problem: Screen goes blank at higher brilliance levels. Disclaimer: The following will work but is not a repair! The logic and troubleshooting might be a good laugh for someone more knowledgeable than I am. No charge for the entertainment. ":o) I'm guessing: The LCD display cable (bundled, not ribbon) has a separation in a critical conductor. At higher current levels (?) the break opens and stops conducting causing the screen to go bright. (?) I was given …

A user reported not be able to access the network. I moved their network cable to another jack and all was well. The 2 wall jacks in question were professional installed Cat 5E cabling, both are plugged into a switch but I can't ping or tracert anything on the network thru them. I applied a cable tester to each end and all the lights sequenced for both jacks. When I put a loopback plug on the user end, connect it to the jack, and then plug the other end of the cable into the switch it lights up. I've tried …

I write a lot of about the battle among large technology corporations in this space and the importance of competitive checks and balances. Yet Comcast seems to be growing into a super power with control over the very pipes that provide many of us with internet access, but without any real competition and often with government support. Most places in this country get internet access through one or at most two providers. That kind of concentration of power is increasingly a threat to the very foundation of business and society, as so many of us use the internet on one …

Sometimes you see a story and it surprises you. Sometimes it seems like the obvious thing, for many people. And sometimes it concerns something you'd been talking about for months, and why on earth didn't they think of this before? The news about which I'm particularly pleased falls into the latter category. He won't remember as he has many followers, but I was exchanging notes with UK celebrity chat show host Jonathan Ross on this very subject via his [URL="http://twitter.com"]Twitter[/URL] feed. He'd mislaid the power lead for his e-book reader and was wondering which, if any, of the cables in …

Internet Broadband subscribers are being peeled away by cable television and there’s really not much the phone companies can do about it, analysts say. That could move a lot of money around on Wall Street. According to Leichtman Research Group, cable companies added 887,000 high-speed Internet subscribers in the 2nd quarter of 2008 – about twice the number of new subscribers added in the same quarter of 2007. The firm says that 76% of new subscribers went to cable companies – a telling sign. According to Leichtman, cable companies now have 35.3 million broadband customers, compared with 29.7 million at …

Once upon a time, Symantec was a known leader in the computer software industry. They had compilers (Think C/C++), purchased and maintained Peter Norton's DOS / Windows Tools, and developed some products for the Mac. Today, they are well known for their Corporate Antivirus tools, although their reporting and functionality leaves room for improvement. More recently, they have expanded into fighting spyware, and as discovered by Network Computing, the spyware component fails to measure up. Feel free to go over to Network Computing's site, and read the article for yourself. To the general public, anything that causes the computer to …
