Sounds like the fan bearing is busted. It's bad, but not a showstopper, as you can probably find a replacement fan on aliexpress. Alternatively, this is a warranty issue, if it's relatively new. First, contact the reseller about their RMA procedure for this. If they somehow manage to get away without doing something about it, or if they want to overchange ...

the Idea with the Desktop from your wife is good but is not going to work because the Hardware is different. BUT you can try with an SATA 2 USB Adapter. with this you can use it like an Flashdrive/ external HDD. (sry for my bad English)

What I would do in your situation is setup the new laptop from scratch, then copy your files over. Reinstall programs on the actual computer, but copy over the AppData folder and program related registries (thanks @Karan) so settings will remain the same. Also for apps such as Steam where some content is housed in it's Program Files folder copy over files ...

These settings adjust the power and cooling limits of your processor. Config TDP Level (cTDP) determines the maximum power which may be used by the processor. This feature was introduced in Ivy Bridge. Not all processors support all settings. See: Ivy Bridge Configurable TDP Detailed. High TDP (cTDP up) increases the power and clock rate limits to enable ...

Advantages of two GPU is improved power consumption management along with performance. The GPU's are connected by a SLI bridge which will decide which graphics card have to be used for a particular task to be performed. it will either use single/individual GPU or both by evaluating the task you are running. It is possible to change the GPU of your choice in ...

The point of the 2 is to enable your laptop to use a lower battery consumption when you don't need the power of a high-spec GPU. Most of the things you do on the laptop probably don't need high-spec graphics. There should be an application running that associates applications with each graphics card. So if you are not bothered about battery life, simply ...

Update: The main point to watch out for is that recent 'advanced format' disks use 4k clusters instead of 512 bytes. Some data transfer methods may leave you with misaligned cluster boundaries, and that will make your system very slow. When partitioning, use a 4k-cluster aware app. Windows 7's diskmgmt.msc is suitable, XP's is not. Knoppix 7's gparted is a ...

I don't think you need to download them all IMO. Simply go to the manufacturer website, and download all drivers that have something to do with network connections (connecting to the internet). And then save this file to USB or similar (some where external). This means, when you reformat the machine you have the drivers needed to get online. At this point, ...

A small trick that I have learned when wiping and re installing Windows is when you go to select the partition that the OS is installed on it will display this message This is fine. What I learned is that it will keep that Windows.old folder on your hard drive that contains the driver for your peripheral. After clicking okay and installing and configuring ...

I was looking for the same laptop, to run linux on it, but it's not that great... Linux support for Dell XPS 13 9343 Fortunately, if you're looking to run Ubuntu on it, this month, Dell announced a developer edition running (modified?) Ubuntu 14.04 LTS XPS 13 Developer Edition

Going to the Acer support site and using the computer's serial number, I was able to order a full restore media set for my Asus laptop. Cost was just $21.00 and delivery only took a few days.

If your laptop still have the recovery partition created by the manufacturer, You might be able to do a recovery or possibly create a recovery image. The hidden recovery partition might have the necessary drivers. Not sure about Asus, I have done something similar using gateway.

Sometimes it helps to create a "Stuck key" situation. Keep an arbitrary key pressed while the laptop boots. It will think the keyboard is faulty and give an erro-message about that. Then it may allow you to get into the bios. ("Press F1 to continue, F2 for Bios setup" or something to that effect.)

Try reflashing your BIOS or flash an earlier Version. Edit: Do not use a modded BIOS Rom file!! Search on your manufacturers site instead.

Your display is not well configured. I tried the steps, too, and can't display on the external monitor. That's why I tried to reinstall the graphics card (Nvidia 6150), with WDDM variant. After installing, Windows asked me to restart; I restarted and the issue was solved: the display is back.

It depends. Power supplies operate on different ranges. You can check on the side of your charging cable for the specifications (usually somewhere around 100-240 Volts). If the low voltage is outside this range, it can damage the power supply and possibly the battery or laptop. This problem can be mitigated with an Uninterruptible Power Supply, or by ...

It's possible there was some collateral damage to the ram, but the only way to find out is to test it. I would download memtest 86, put the old laptops ram in the new machine and then run it to make sure there are no issues. that being said, I've salvaged a lot of ram without issues. If overheating was really the the problem with the original laptop, I ...

I don't know how this "everyone" is, but if you remove a battery from any MacBook with a removable battery, then the clock speed will be drastically reduced. The reason is that the charger supplies a limited amount of power, and it is possible that the laptop would for a very short time need more power than the charger can supply. For example, if all cores ...

Based on your description I believe you have to issues here: First is probably wormed out battery which can no longer hold enough energy stored for your laptop to run on battery for longer periods. And the second issue which is actually not an issue of your computer shutting down after longer periods of being idle are the windows power settings which puts ...

My keyboard is locked too only in Firefox. I was reading the avast scanning log and i saw some languagefiles that couldn't be read by it, so, i think that maybe they are some anti-virus progam may be locking this files.

these are so new that you probably still have a warranty. you can check this on Toshiba's web site by inputting the serial and model number off of the tag. I bought mine used on ebay and if the original owner did not register it, then you can register it and get the full one year warranty and 60 days of free Toshiba tech support.

As @Richie Frame pointed out (this is actually his answer, so he might wish to post one), the problem was probably a broken motherboard. The points by which to recognize it were the screen was blank the hd worked ok after removal (none of the BIOS screen combinations worked) an external screen showed no signal (otherwise, it could be graphics-related)

this didnt happen when on AC(with battery) or on AC only.. Sounds like the battery is on it's way to heaven for me. Can you please verify, that the battery is OK? Are you absolutely sure, that the AC is compatible with your laptop? Is it genuine one, or just cheap "no name" replacement? Maybe the AC is not charging the battery or not charging well at ...

So should i keep the y2p and just connect its charger all the time or get a laptop that has a removable battery? like maybe a macbook or something? Recent Apple laptops aren't designed to allow you to remove or replace the battery (see here for an example) so would be a bad choice if that is that is really something that bothers you. Also, Lenovo ...

The answer is complicated. And I hope it will answer future questions like that. But please edit question so it has relevance (add something like: battery life and life cycle) First you have to have an idea how battery works. In short, it is an chemical compound container, which generates current from chemical reaction. That it can be charged and discharged ...

The suggestions for the treatment of li-ion (and li-poly) batteries to keep them cool, and at a lower charge state are simply that, suggestions that will give it the best chance to survive for more time (as in years). Li-ion prefers to not be as hot as it can get while in a computing device , which includes phones, laptops even power boxes using them. They ...

One thing that you didn't mention that you need to do is: Go into your BIOS and enable the VT-d option. VT-d is required to passthrough a PCI device to a virtual machine. (And even if this doesn't solve the issue, you should still leave it enabled, because it will be part of the solution.)

I could be mistaken but doesn't KVM currently only work with discrete video cards (the GT 750M is an Optimus card)? REF: http://www.linux-kvm.org/wiki/images/b/b3/01x09b-VFIOandYou-small.pdf

I have a similar problem when undocking my Latitude E6430 with Chrome v42. Since it is only Chrome that crashes I don't believe it is due to graphics processing. I am moving from a wired internet connection to a wireless internet connection when it happens and I think this is the culprit. Oddly, it no longer happens when I go from undocked to docked, just ...

You could reboot your router, connect your laptop via LAN and http to the router to again see the configuration settings. Might be useful to call your ISP tech support on the phone for them to help with the settings. If you can't see it in your wireless networks, chances are SSID is not broadcasting...

This is normal. What you are looking for (a nice, packaged driver set with all the drivers for your laptop) does not really exist. This is generally something you only see with business-class laptops from the tier-1 vendors like HP, Dell, and Lenovo. Unfortunately, you're going to have to download the drivers one-by-one. The best course of action here ...

You sure can! They make automotive compatible chargers for most laptops because they are portable. You didn't say what brand and model you have, but all you need to do is find one that is compatible. An Internet search will result in all kinds of adapters to choose from. Note: images are for reference only, not a purchasing recommendation.

This sounds very much like some (tiny) static current would be on the VGA cable's shielding. If you touch the notebook (or hold it), you essentially ground it, removing that current, which screws with the touch pad. You should report the issue to someoe responsible with your university's tech stuff. The issue is just minor right now, but might cause serious ...

A MXM V3.0 card can be replaced, that is true. Carefull: They come in 2 formfactors, A and B and the B modules might not fit if your current is an A. But your laptop can only handle a GPU with a TDP of 75W with it's cooling (so says the service manual) and with the 675M it is already running on the edge. It gets bloody hot already. Any faster GPU will ...

It seems quite possible, however I would recommend choosing an upgrade with the same or closest TDP, to avoid issues.

Found same problem on a 32GB USB 3.0 Drive (Win 8.1 Laptop with 4x USB 3.0 ports). Read elsewhere that connecting too slowly will produce this effect (reads as High-Speed 0x02 connection instead of SuperSpeed 0x03). I removed the drive (using eject pop-up window), waited a few seconds and reconnected quickly. The connection now reads correctly as ...

1) Right click the Battery Status in the system tray(right bottom of the desktop) 2) Select "Power Options" 3) Click on "Longevity Mode" tab and select the "Disable" radio button". The next time you charge your laptop it has to charge upto 100%
