Hey i'm looking for a laptop for my daily work which specifically includes surfing the internet, streaming videos and movies, and a bit of word processing. What components should the laptop have so that it lasts for 5 years without any upgardes. I don't have any specific budget but confused about the specifications. I went through a guide https://laptopdiscovery.com/everyday-laptops/ But could not choose the right combination of features for myself. Any help is appreciated.

dear community working with Micropython - which ecosystem to choose - ESP 8266 or ESP 32? I work with Kids. I'm always looking for economical platforms to build intriguing projects. there are systematical decisions: in earlier times i use Arduino and Raspberry Pi for the projects because the eco-sytems of Arduino and Raspi support rich options to combine. While Arduino clones are cheap, it uses the C/C++ language. that kids are not familiar with. and - yes it doesn't have a built-in WiFi-support. But that is pretty important for me. WiFi-Support is a must for all the IoT projects i …

Hello, Everytime I connect my 1920x1080p monitor to my pc I always get a blurry display, the colors are washed out and look fake, I've tried different cables (DVI and HDMI) but I get the same results. When I look at my 1080p monitor It doesn't feel like it's a full HD monitor, it isn't clear and it's fuzzy...in other words it is farrrr away from HD, hell even my 14 inch laptop screen which has a resolution of 1366x768 looks wayy better.

For Father's Day I got him an SSD but when I would get to the part of the installation where it needs to format the drive it would always give me an error and fail. A few times it did this after I swapped the drives out but now the computer will not even boot to a Linux Mint ISO USB or DVD with the SSD drive in because it gives an error saying that there's no hard …

Hey there Hope I'm at the right place posting this. I'm developing a software and one of the modules concerns encoding information on a card using a printer (Primacy from Evolis). When purchasing the printer, I was told it could do what I wished. The issue is that I do not know which type of card I have to purchase to develop this functionality. I made some researches and I found **RFID cards without contact** and **RFID cards with contact** which could be used. I also saw there are **cards incorporated with a chip** which could be used to perform …

Hi guys, I have 3 HPE servers all with iLO3 Advanced, in the office I can manage them easily as each has their own private IP, and the main server has ports opened so it can be access from outside the office, as some of you will know, the web interface does not work well with Chrome or Edge so I use the HPE Standalone software which works really well, other than it won't allow address + port ( xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:5000 ) so I can only access this main server only. How and what I need to do to be able …

Hey lately i have currently been looking for a new cpu cooler considering that i still have the default stock cooler that came with the cpu and/or case... Which isn't really doing its job too well not cooling and extremely loud (doesn't help that the computer is in the hottest room thats like a oven through out the day). I would like to aim for something between $30-60$ excluding postage costs (preferably something cheaper thats half decent).

HI :)) I just bought a canon pixma mp520 and also the new ink cartridges. The thing is the printer doesn't print anything except black texts. With the color texts, the printer just skipped straight to the next black ones. I tried cleaning and deep cleaning options already, did the nozzle check but the result came out only in the black ink option in perfect condition. Tried to print color and also black and white pictures, papers alway came out blank. I already checked the printing color option on the way out and all the other stuff. So i'm pretty …

# Good day to all! # Broken old printer it's time to buy a new one. I can not determine the inkjet or laser ... I read an article and was confused by the fact that laser printers do not print so clearly. On the other hand, the paint does not dry up in them, as in inkjet.Also I would like to hear what brands you use... I work in a marketing company, where I often have to print pictures and presentations. Please, tell me your ideas and thoughts about what you think about this. Thank you

So I basically tried to make a gaming pc, first one. And I encountered a big problem. I thought I had everything set up and connected (with the disappointment that my Gigabyte Z370 Ultra Gaming didn’t support RGB) but when I went to turn it on for a final test, the motherboard flickered a little of the led it has and just did nothing at all. I pressed the power button then the fans came on and a red light came on on the motherboard. But it continuously turned off and on by itself within the span of like 10 …
