  • Laptop for school

    Looking for a laptop for high school that is 14 inches or smaller, I want to be able to play games on it and I don't want it to look like a gaming laptop, just a regular laptop.

  • Monitor Display Size

    I have a laptop and I am using a 42" flat screen as a second monitor. Everything is so huge on this 2nd monitor but I would like it to be scaled down to be about the same size as the laptop. I already tried changing the resolution and it didn't do anything.

  • Best way to discharge laptop battery in Linux

    So I was told by a friend a couple of days that I should fully discharge my laptop battery (after the first full charge). What's the best way to do that on Linux? Thanks so much.

  • Lenovo laptop screen is showing small white dots

    I've had a Lenovo laptop for the past month or so (I believe it's a G510). The past week, the laptop screen keeps showing these small white dots. I'm not sure what they are but it's very annoying (I almost can't see the screen). What should I do?

  • Computers for artists?

    I am looking into digital art, and am conflicted as to whether or not I should get a laptop plus a tablet (such as a wacom) or purchase an all-in-one laptop with a touchscreen that I can just draw on. The only thing I don't really want is a surface because I would rather have a keyboard attached...

  • How to prevent the battery of an idle laptop from damaging?

    I got a laptop almost a week ago. It's Dell i7, generation 7. I used it twice but I'm not going to use it again for 6-7 months. Will its battery be damaged? What can be done to prevent this from happening? Or if using it, once in a while, is necessary then how often should I use it?

  • Dell laptop fan is working very hard

    Hi everyone! My work gave me a new laptop about a month ago. It's working great. But I can constantly hear the fan working. I checked Task Manager and it's not the CPU (it's the memory which is very high - usually coming from Chrome and Firefox). Should I be concerned?

  • When to plugin and uplug your laptop?

    This is more a discussion than a question. A couple of years ago, I remember reading an article that said you should plug your laptop in at around 40% and then uplug it when it gets around 80%. I can't remember where the article was from but I'm curious: Is that still the case now? Or should I just...

    I'm currently looking at my Task Manager and it's showing my memory at 70% usage - and I'm not running any programs at the moment! What could be causing this high usage? It's an Acer laptop running Windows 10. Thanks so much.

  • Asus laptop keys type wrong characters

    Many keys on my keyboard type the wrong keys that are written on the physical key. I don't know why this is happening or how to fix it, I have looked online and have not found anything that has helped me so far.

  • New laptop is very laggy and glitchy

    I recently purchased a new laptop with what I thought was better specs. However, when I have tried using it, the laptop is overall very laggy/glitchy, takes a bit to load pages (documents, pictures, settings). Also, I'm not very much of a gamer but I do enjoy some games on steam that have changed...

  • Time to get a new laptop?

    I am currently using a four-year-old Macbook Pro and the battery doesn't work at all. It lasts about five minutes while the laptop is not plugged in and the battery will randomly fail and shut down even while it is plugged in. It would cost me $200 or more to fix it. The Macbook doesn't work nearly...

  • How can I prevent my laptop from waking up?

    Alright - this is a pretty simple question but I'm not the best when it comes to computers. Usually, I put my laptop to sleep whenever I'm not using it. However, sometimes I accidentally bump my computer mouse or keyboard and it turns it back on. How can I prevent that from happening?
