Tablets don't need fans because their CPUs (processors) have a different architecture that is more power efficient and doesn't generate as much waste heat. This is also why they are able to get 10 hours of run-time on a relatively small battery. The other side of this, though, is that the tablet processor is no where near as powerful as a laptop ...

There are three heat generation points in a laptop: Processor Chipset Graphics Power regulators 1-3 of the above subsystems work at very high speeds. Because these subsystems are clocked so high, the power requirement is very high. High speed and hi power requirements generate a lot of heat in Si. Also, these subsystems use PCIe to communicate and PCIe ...

Go to Services (just windows search it) and see what the status is. Set it to manual or disabled. If it already is disabled then I don't know!

On Windows PCs you go in to Bamboo Preferences then click Details in the Tracking options on the right. Next, select Monitor in the Screen Area section. After that just change the number in the window to pick the monitor you want your pen to stay on.

For archiving your existing notebooks I suggest either a digital camera or a scanner. The Camera is a much faster way to archive dead-tree media as it takes the image at once. A basic camera setup is using a tripod or other mount, and affixing your notebook in place. If necessary, use two small weights to keep the pages you're currently on flat. Then just ...

Windows 7 I have found the solution: Open Local Group Policy Editor. It is quite hidden - search for it in Windows Start menu or in Control panel - use the search box as I have not found the shortcut for it. Alternatively you can run gpedit from command line (not from Run in Start menu). Navigate to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows ...

The pens often don't do much, in some cases they are just plastic. It is the tablett which does the work there are various ways that they can tell where they are being tapped. Quoting from wikipedia Passive tablets Passive tablets, most notably those by Wacom, make use of electromagnetic induction technology, where the horizontal and vertical wires of the ...

Wacom tablets let you map the area on the tablet to a part of the screen. This works perfectly - even on my triple monitor display. Frankly, any other tablet is really a joke in comparison to the awesome power of a Wacom Intuos.

According to this and many other forums is appears that you can remove the battery and replace it, as well as memory pretty easily. You can remove and replace the hard drive of that particular laptop, however you will be limited to the drive selection that you can replace it with: Hard Drive - The T91MT comes stock with a 32gig SSD ... The T91MT ...

Ctrl-Alt-Del is a secure keyboard combination that cannot be passed through the On-Screen Keyboard (AFAIK). You can read more here at Wikipedia. Check the tablet quick start guide or operating manual for a Windows Security button. This acts as an equivalent for the Ctrl-Alt-Del key combination. The tablet does not come with a keyboard, right?

If UAC is disabled on the target computer then passing a fake Secure Attention Sequence (SAS) keystroke (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) to the system (ie: from an OSK or a remote-control program like VNC) will fail. If you need lowered UAC interference, then you can turn it down to one notch above Off and that should allow the SAS to be passed. Similar question is here: ...

Click the Start button. Type "Tablet PC Input Panel" and click the first autosuggested link. If the keyboard pops up instead of the Options window at this point, click Tools, then Options. Uncheck all three boxes under "Choose where to show the Input Panel icons and tab" Click OK.

It depends on the hardware of the laptop, what sort of software you're running, whether you're using the computer actively or if it's just sitting on the desk, what sort of power management is configured, the environment you'll be using the laptop in, and how old the battery is, just to name a few factors. There is no way to accurately answer this question. ...

Disable pointer shadow within the cursor menu. I was having the same issue and this seemed to fix the artifact on the second window.

You can use the more powerful DC adapter (19v @2.15A = 40 watts) for both, since the Netbook which requires less juice will only draw what it needs from the more powerful one. This of course depends on if the plug is not only the same size, but has the same positive/negative configuration. Think of this like using a Universal DC adapter which puts out a ...

802.11n is 600 Mbit/s SD class 10 is 10 MB/s (80 Mbit/s) However the former is a theoretical maximum (assuming 4 streams, 4 aerials). 74 mbit/s is more realistic with an ideal signal (no interference, no other nearby Wifi devices). The latter is sustained minimum write speed. Here's a graph from ...

A quick google search turned up a feature in Windows 8.1 called kiosk mode which will lock the windows into a single app. I don't believe this feature to be in windows 8, so you might have to upgrade to 8.1, which is a free upgrade, but might cause incompatibility with some software that you are running. Here is an article about kiosk mode: ...

With all 3 chargers, the voltage ranges of 5, 5.3 and 5 are all pretty close to each other and I would not worry too much about that. Think of electricity like this TheĀ­ three most basic units in electricity are voltage (V) current (I) resistance (r) Voltage is measured in volts, current is measured in amps and resistance is measured in ohms. A neat ...

I have a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch and I can verify that my pen has an eraser tip. As far as I know the Bamboo Pen model does not.

I have the Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) and I can confirm that the pen lacks an eraser. However, the pen has two buttons on the side, and I have programmed one of them to function as an eraser. That way, instead of flipping the pen over, I can just hold the button and erase. The Bamboo also lacks the customizable buttons on the side of the tablet, which ...

Open bamboo preferences Select "Pen" tab While in "Pen Mode" select the "Mapping" button Pen Mode Details comes up. Select "Monitor" bullet. On the counter to the right, select which monitor you would like bamboo to use. ...

The Linux Wacom Project supports the Wacom Bamboo and Bamboo Fun tablets, which have multi-touch. I ordered a Bamboo Pen and Touch and it works great with the latest drivers, but I had to compile it myself since it's not in Ubuntu's repositories yet.

Connected Standby relies on a set of relatively new power states known as S0ix (active idle). This is explained extensively over at AnandTech, in their introduction to Intel's Haswell architecture: The solution is connected standby or active idle, a feature supported both by Haswell and Clovertrail as well as all of the currently shipping ARM based ...

The official Samsung charger has a rated output of 2 Amps, which is quite a lot, hence its size. On the other hand, standard USB has a 500 mA (0.5 Amps) maximum current rating, and an ordinary generic USB charger is likely to top out around there (or much less, if it's cheaply made). The reason for the high current output of the official charger is the ...

This is because since honeycomb Google have decided to use the MTP protocol to handle PC to Tablet file transfers as it allows them to obfuscate the internal file system on the device and fix one of the most glaring of the early problems with Android, namely that the space for applications and user data was fixed and one could be unable to install an ...

If you go to "Control Panel" > "Programs and Features" > "Turn Windows features on or off", You can remove the Tablet PC Components. I know this isn't as easy to turn on later - however, all Windows Vista/7 setup files are stored on your machine, so it should be quick and easy to re-enable at a later date.

Even with an appropriate boost regulator, the car charger can't supply enough power (5V@2.1A, 10.5W) to charge the tablet (12V@1.5A, 18W). I would look at getting a 12V buck/boost regulator you could plug directly into the socket with a 2A fuse.
