T410 Thin Client no product number

Q: T410 Thin Client no product number

I have a T410 here that has no product number, only a spare number and the serial number. I cannot even check warranty on this thing without the product number, and trying the normal t410 product number does not work. Does this thing even have a warranty?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Something like this but with a thin male connector. I need it to connect flash drives to a usb port where there's little space available around the usb port because the ports around are busy (happens in MacBook air for example).

Is there any way of sharing hard drives/folder over the internet with the client side need to install anything.
I.e use add network location option in my computer
Or a client programme that is user friendly

The server side will need to run on my computer,
looked at FreeNas thats not an option,
Filezilla looks like it the best option server side of things but uses a client programe.

Im happy to run any programmes/OS's in a VM if that were needed.

Had an AMD HP G62-227CL laptop that overheated and required motherboard replacement with similar Intel motherboard. Old board clocked at 2.2 MHZ .. new one is 2.0 MHZ.
Board I got from Ebay works but now computer believes that it is a Compaq CQ42 Laptop. Do not know the model number, which I would need on HPs site to download BIOs upgrades.

Is there a way to tell which bios I need or what model I now have?

Thank you,


A:Replaced Failed Motherboard.. now how do I determine model number and which BIOS to download?

Finding a bios update rather then the one hp would give for this board. Would be next to none.
You could check a few of the support pages for this model. Which their are a lot Of
Maybe find out the motherboard you have bought.

Afternoon Ladies & Gents!

I've spent a few hours on researching this topic. I can't seem to find what I'd need.

Currently I'm looking for a solution. I have about 50 franchised offices. We've played a TV in each of them. Is it possible to put a device in each office and have a "Server" type device to push content over a VPN to them? Also naturally display this on the TVs.

Any comments or points in a direction would be much, much, appreciated.

Thank you!

I have Windows XP SP3 installed on my desktop and suddenly my LAN/NIC is not receiving and sending packets from my network. The DHCP Client Services and TcpIP services wont start it gives error from the above.

From the device manager of non-plug and play drivers, the tcpip protocol driver, ip network address translator and netbios over tcpip has exclamation point. When I uninstall the drivers and start the services the connection is established but when I shutdown/restart the PC it will came back again the issue.

AFD is running

Below drivers are present in system32\drivers folder.

Any ideas?

A:DNS client event errors

Easiest approach is to delete the host file
\windows\system32\drivers\etc contains hosts

you need ADMIN privileges
First stop the client by getting a cmd prompt and enter net stop "dns client" (exactly as shown)
now cd to \windows\system32\drivers\etc

del hosts
then recreate it using echo "" >hosts
(that is two consecutive double-quotes without anything between)

now you should clear the event viewer log containing the error and follow up with
net start "dns client"

ping is not required to have connectivity - - it is only a test & traceroute tool.

From the client, get a command prompt (or in Linux a Terminal) use nslookup

i wanted to know what is a ip number
n does a computer have a ip number
does the internet connection have the number


A:IP number

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a numerical label that is assigned to devices in a computer network that exchange data according to the Internet Protocol. An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and location addressing. Its role has been characterized thusly: "A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there."

The Internet Protocol also routes data packets between networks, and IP addresses specify the locations of the source and destination nodes in the topology of the routing system.

The designers of TCP/IP defined an IP address as a 32-bit number and this system, known as Internet Protocol Version 4 or IPv4, is still in use today. The enormous growth of the Internet depleted the pool of available addresses, leading in 1995 to the creation of the 128-bit IPv6 system, which was last standardized by RFC 2460 in 1998. Although IP addresses are stored as binary numbers, they are usually displayed in human-readable notations, such as (for IPv4), and 2001:db8:0:1234:0:567:1:1 (for IPv6). Because of its prevalence, the generic term IP address typically still refers to the addresses defined by IPv4.

I did some breif googling and was unable to find an answer, I may have just overlooked it. Does anyone know offhand how many can go on a dvd? I imagine it depends on how you burn it, ISO or UDF but I don't know for sure.

This question came up when I was asked to back up an old mac hard drive so a guy could get the files off of it after a PSU failure, where it wasn't worth buying a new PSU (since the computer hadn't been used in years anyway). The hard drive was only 2 gig (yeh the Mac came from back when legal Mac clones existed) so it will fit on a single layer dvd.

Just was wondering how many files could go on a DVD.. I'm sure its probably 10-100x the amount that were on the drive but I was curious.

A:What is the max number files allowed on a DVD?

Generally, writable DVD discs come in 12cm (120 mm) and 8cm (80 mm) diameter sizes. The most commonly used is the larger 12cm type

A (12cm) "4.7 GB" media has 4.7 * 1 000 000 = 4.700.000.000 bytes / 1024/1024/1024 = 4.377 GB

4.7 GB disc stores 4.7 billion bytes [4:700,000,000 bytes ÷ 1000 = 4,700,000 KB ÷ 1000 = 4,700 MB ÷ 1000 = 4.7 GB]
Note: usable space may in fact be smaller ie around 4.27GB, due to sectors and disc formatting


Writable DVD discs can either be single (SS 4.7 GB) or double-sided (DS 9.4 GB) or double-sided double-layer ~17 GB (rare)

The amount of information that can be written is determined by the disc?s recording capacity as well as the physical and logical formats used.
All writable DVD formats devote the same amount of usable space to data (2,048 bytes per sector). DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM specify the number of sectors available for user information (4.7 GB DVD+R/+RW 2,295,104 sectors, 4.7 GB DVD-RAM 2,295,072 sectors) so disc capacity can be calculated by multiplying the user data area size by the number of disc sectors. For example, a 4.7 GB DVD+R disc: 2,048 bytes/sector x 2,295,104 sectors = 4,700,372,992 bytes. This rounds to roughly 4.7 GB (decimal notation).

DVD-R and DVD-RW, on the other hand, do not stipulate the number of sectors that are dedicated to user information but simply that a minimum capacity must be available on the disc. In the case of DVD-R (version 1.0) this is 3.95 (12 cm) and 1.23 (8 cm) billion bytes and for DVD-R (Authoring), DVD-R (General) and DVD-RW 4.7 (12 cm) and 1.46 (8 cm) billion bytes. Consequently, real world capacity can vary slightly among discs from different media manufacturers although many have informally settled on 2,298,496 sectors (4,707,319,808 bytes) for a DVD-R (General) 4.7 GB disc.

Be aware, however, that the logical format (UDF, FAT, HFS etc.) as well as any defect management system employed consume space otherwise available for user information

Each DVD sector contains 2418 bytes of data, 2048 bytes of which are user data. And has in total 4,700,372,992 bytes on the entire disc
Therefore using maths (and approximating the amount of total usable data space on a DVD 4.7GB Disc)

4,700,372,992 ÷ 2048 = approximately 2,300,000 files (but more likely around 1.5 Million due to loss of space\burning program used\type of format\ etc etc

I am working on a dell PC that I'm trying to do a system recovery on. It has a 250 gig SATA drive installed. I unplugged the drive to connect to another PC to pull the personal data from and reconnected the drive to the dell to perform the recovery. On initial boot up there is a choice to press F10 to perform the recovery. Pressing this does nothing but send me to a boot menu. When I entered the bios it is showing the drive as device 4 instead of 1. Is there any way to reset the drive to device 1 again? I have a feeling if I can do this the recovery option will work.

In another thread I got advice on how to network my XP and Vista computers and solved the problem by uninstalling the AT&T Global Network Client Managed VPN Edition. I thought I had removed it completely from my Vista machine, but I am now experiencing periodic pop ups of a dialog box titled "Connect AT&T Global Network Client" and asking for a telephone number.

I've installed rAdmin viewer on PC1 and the rAdmin server on PC2.

PC1 (viewer) --------->>>>>> PC2 (server)

By using the viewer on PC1 I log in to PC2 and start applications etc.

Is it possible to start a program via the viewer of PC1 remotely on PC2 that is in fact executed on PC1 ?

Is it possible for someone sitting in front of PC2 to change something on PC1 (kind of reverse connection) while I'm not watching ?

Thanks for your help !


A:Using rAdmin for a server -->> client reverse connection


Using rAdmin you are basically setting up a trust between the Viewer and Server
Although the Server can gain full access over the Viewer; the Viewer also is aware of any IP linking to it, and therefore could try to hack into the Servers IP (using another program), and thus cause issues.

Q1. No not without giving permissions (ie file transfer and chat)
Q2. The server has full control (normally) so they could do just about anything

I have a Motorola Modem hooked to Linksys Router. I am trying to use a VPN client via laptop. Is it possible to bypass the Router and set up an Ethernet connection to the laptop and a separate one to the router coming in from the same modem? Are there any kind of splitter cables that can be used to allow both the modem to be hooked up for the laptop and the router simultaneously? If so has anyone done this successfully? and how?

A:Linksys and VPN Client Issues

The only way this might work is with an ADSL modem which then feeds two routers, each of which controls its own network and issues its own IP address set. There are no splitter cables that I know of that you can use in this arrangement.

You can turn a PC into a router using Windows 2003 Server NAT and by using two NIC cards...
You can turn a PC into Network Media Streamer and make XP act like server switch
You can pretty much do anything you want if you have the right software and hardware equipment..

NIC 2 - LAN - would go into a 5, 8, 16, 24, 32 port switch

You can also make that router into a wireless router


You can also make it have 4 NIC


Depends on how many PCI slots you have..

Dell told me, after going through 100000000 hours of runaround, that I have to replace the whole screen. Does anyone know if this is true? If not, does anyone know where I can find out the part number? This is making me insane! I would really appreciate any help on this.

I've always heard and read that a paper thin layer is best but since the paste is really only there to fill microscopic pits and imperfections, wouldn't merely smearing a tiny bit on with a platic bag around your finger be even better? Wouldn't this be closer to having true contact between the cpu and the heatsink? Paper thin almost seems too thick.

Also, are antec silver and arctic silver basically the same or is arctic better? I had some of both from my last upgrade a few years ago but i was only able to find the antec.

Paper thin is fine, not to little, and not to much. I use, and most people would probably reccomend using artic silver.

VPN can be implemented in the hardware-to-hardware layer OR
in a software implementation such as SSH.
The software SSH will put the user back into the DOS/Unix command
style of commands and syntax to be learned. Works great, but utility gets
limited if you need to work that way all day long. We've all become SO acustomed to GUIs.

The OpenSource community offers OpenVPN

and a non-commercial oem offers this windows support

The hardware implementation allows existing GUI applications to be used and the transport
layers do all the VPN magic transparently.
These can be expensive for large commercial concurent users. Google for VPN APPLIANCE

So tell me is there any hope for this poor old machine? If I can't even check the BIOS settings I don't have a clue what I could do. I want to try and re-load it but if the battery is low enough that it won't boot properly then I don't even know if that will work. Any advice?

A:Suggestions for an email client

Actually, imo, you are looking for your email provider to support IMAP instead or in addition to POP3.
The provides both as do others.

The advantage of POP3 is for the email provider; saves email on their host only until you access the account at which time the inbox on their server is entirely downloaded to your device, eg: the PC. Once on the PC, you run directly into your issue, aka syncing.

The advantage of IMAP is for you; the email STAYS on the email providers host where it is accessible by ALL your devices. The individual emails are removed only when you DELETE them. So, you can read an email on your mobile, realize that you need to deal with it when you get home, and just close it. Later at home, you can re-read it, do whatever is necessary, and reply/delete as you desire.

I ask because the last time I needed to do this, I used Outlook and Eudora and they did not have any issues with each other, even running simultaneously. Yes, I know, I am getting old...

I don't think that it exists, but an email client that works with Outlook calendar invites would be ideal.


A:Best Non-Outlook Email Client?

I've been using Thunderbird for years and have yet to find anything to replace it. At this point I've migrated all of my accounts over to it and have nothing bad to say about.

As for calendars, I don't really know if you can integrate the Outlook calendar to it. There is an extension called "Lightning". That will integrate with Google calendar but that's as far as I've ever had to go with setting up a calendar in Thunderbird.

And for the record... I followed a near identical upgrade path as you did from the late 90s Eudora to Outlook (up to 2007) then finally just jumped ship. Haven't looked back.

This issue has been happening for over 2 years, Godaddy can't help so I thought asking other members for help.

It seems every few days I lose emails, I also spent $80 last-year for Unlimited emails but nothing changes.

The first Month it happened I connected Thunderbird and Godaddy reset the servers and all my emails appeared again. Its a endless battle and the topper was my Unlimited service expired so they closed my email address.

I currently have 5000 emails in my Thunderbird program but 38 emails when logged into the Godaddy client? The funny thing my sent emails don't get deleted have everything from 2011.

Thunderbird downloads everything automatically and doesn't delete a thing.

Hoping a few members can help me.

I am getting problem whenever I?m trying to send Email using Microsoft outlook express 2007. I am getting this error message ?Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Error Number: 0x800CCC0F? please help me in resolving this error.

A:Why is this error coming "Error Number: 0x800CCC0F" in Microsoft Outlook Express continuously?

Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. I assume that you?ve ruled these out.

The problem may also occur if you have an antivirus e-mail protection utility enabled, which checks the mail as it comes in from your Post Office Protocol (POP) server. To test this, disable the antivirus e-mail protection utility as well as the Windows Firewall.

Another likely cause is that there is a message that is either too large or corrupt in some manner. Logon to your servers Webmail site and delete the offending message there.

I download the 1.5 mb install, load it, it updates once. Then it goes to update again and in about 4 minutes it says you have no internet connection. But I do have a internet connection.

The internet works fine I have downloaded about 15 gb of data in the last week.

Hi everyone,
I am working on a simple crawler that downloads web pages and stores it on my computer on local drive. The crawler works fine for the simple task I needed. My problem is, the crawler fails to create files and save the web pages once the number of files in the folder is around 630. The crawler works normally but the files are not created. I think this has something to do with Operating System than the crawler. Disk quota is off on the computer. I run Windows 7 Professional 64 bit version on laptop. Do you see any reason why this happens?

A:Problem with number of files in a folder

More likely that the script processing limit(cpu time) is reached.
Unless you have quotas enabled, the file count is not limited to this smallish number.

How long have you been using utorrent for, its speed can vary depending on what is available from the connections it acquires. Right click where the Download speed is shown at the bottom of the utorrent main page and check it is set to Unlimited.

It can also be slowed down by a slow internet connection. Check it with this.

Windows Live Messenger - Change Number of Reconnect Attempts + Maximize Security

I have a small issue with the Windows Live Messenger automatic reconnect feature, and was wondering if there is any way to change it.
Thing is, whenever I lose my internet connection for a minute, Messenger obviously disconnects, and attempts to reconnect after a certain amount of time (~1 minute). Usually its first 2 attempts fail at connecting to my account, and then the attempts stop.
I need a way to make Messenger try to reconnect once or twice more, because usually the 4th-5th time I try, Messenger gets it right.

Thank you very much for any help whatsoever.
Greatly appreciated.

A:Windows Live Messenger - Change Number of Reconnect Attempts

as far as i know there's not a way to change this, usually it will keep trying to reconnect with longer intervals in between, but obviously this is not the case here

i expect it would be a set thing in the program's code and not something that you could change easily

I do believe you can only use your Yahoo! account via POP3/SMTP if you subscribe to the premium service. You can import your contacts but that's about it.

If you try to install windows 7 64 bit version and run into problems with an older computer (lack of 64 bit drivers), can you then try to install the 32 bit version using the same product key? the windows 7 professional box says it contains both 32 and 64 bit versions. I am afraid to try to install the 64 bit version and then not be able to install the 32 bit version if the 64 bit version does not work out. also, my computer is the acer t-180 and on acer's driver website they only list 32 bit drivers for vista. there are no 64 bit drivers even though the processor is 64 bit. it came with vista 32 bit a few years ago. acer told me i could use vista's drivers for windows 7. would windows 7 have the 64 bit drivers in it for this computer or would i have to try to find them separately (if that's even possible). thanks in advance.

Hi - on ebait, someone is selling dell thin clients with windows 7 embedded. The computer is "Dell Optiplex FX170," with an Atom N270. I cannot find info on the motherboard. When I have looked at Windows Embedded info, it seems that it is supposed to have great modularity so that the OS can be kept small and can be tailored to specific apps.

I have loaded Win7 on an Asus netbook, so I know the Atom processsor will run Win7 decently.

What degree of Windows functioning would I have if I tried to use one of these as a normal stand-alone desktop? Could I run most all Windows-compatible software? I am guessing software would have to be loaded onto flash drive or another drive - it seems like this comp only has memory for the embedded OS.

A:Functionality of Windows 7 Embedded on Dell Thin Client?

You can set Windows Embedded to install itself essentially as a Win7 machine. Just check all the modules.

I am unsure on program compatibility.. it should be OK, but I'm not 100%

Also, you're actually gonna buy this thing? Do you know what a thin client is?
