Here are a couple of products that claim being able to create virtual COM ports over the network. I have no experience with these products and suggest being careful when installing them. HW VSP3 - Virtual Serial Port (freeware, website) HW VSP is a software driver that adds a virtual serial port (e.g. COM5) to the operating system and redirects the ...

You should get a separate keyboard and use the numpad on it, then put back your mouse/cooler/hard disk etc. It's not the best idea because if you do this many times it will break the USB port, but it's a temporary solution.

As you mention "HP" in your tags: e-mail printing is a functionality of some of the newer (and not so new) HP printers which allow you to bypass having to set up printing for visitors. So instead of having to support visitors who know nothing abouts CUPS, Drivers, USB cables, WiFi/cable networks and such, you just have to stick a label on the printer ...

HP is a total stickler when it comes to OEM batteries and external battery packs (ie: chargers). The reason it works on your Lenovo is because it simply works. There's nothing "wrong" with your external battery pack. The issue is with HP's manufactured firmware. HP often doesn't charge the internal battery if it detects that the AC Power adapter isn't HP ...

Yes, it's normal to have 8.1 system files occupy 32GB and there is not much you can do. You'll need to use external media, or online storage for personal files. SD card slot might be nice option. WinSxS is NOT the culprit, it's been discussed much. In short, nearly all system files that comprises the Windows OS since Vista are hardlinked against content of ...

Don't have this type of laptop, but the problem you are describing with static would depend on how humid the air is. Static isn't a problem in very humid climates, but is in very dry ones. If the location/s your laptop is used in is in a climate controlled building or room, it would depend on the type of climate control being used.

The message you get is from the BIOS which checks the drives SMART status. This is probably reporting many reallocated sectors. Usually this means the drive is failing. Reinstalling the OS or repartitioning does not help with that. You can do clever tricks like scanning the drive, locating groups of failed sectors and partitioning in around them but the ...

OK, MariusMatutiae pointed me in the right direction. The actual problem was that the Intel Smart Response HDD + SSD combo was set up in a fake RAID configuration. Never occurred to me to look in Windows 8.1 for a way to disable it, but that's where it was (search Apps for keyword 'Intel').
