  1. That was my thinking. I've got a 240GB SSD on my desktop and I think that a similar capacity drive would work just fine. Thanks!
  2. Hello! I've been searching for the last few months for a new laptop. I've narrowed it down to 2 laptops from Lenovo. I did look at options from Dell, HP, etc. but they didn't have what I was looking for vs. the prices. I'm looking for some advice on what to do. The 2 laptops I'm stuck on is the Lenovo Ideapad 330(15) or the Lenovo V330 (15). They both have 15.6 inch 1080p screens, 4 core 8 thread processors of similar performance, 8GB RAM, 1TB 5400RPM HDDs. The Ideapad 330 has a Ryzen 2500U with integrated Vega 8 GPU but only has one SATA drive slot. The Lenovo V330 has an Intel i5-8250U with Intel HD 620 graphics but it has a SATA drive slot as well as an M.2 slot. I'm leaning more towards the AMD model since it has better on board graphics but it's only got the once drive slot. Either way I'm replacing the hard drive with an SSD but I was thinking with the Intel model, I could boot from an M.2 SSD and use the HDD for storage. My price range is around $500. For the interested, this is what I want on my laptop. At least a quad core, 4GB+ RAM, on board graphics that will be enough for day to day tasks and light video editing and a 1080P screen. I mainly use my laptop for working in Google Earth and some video editing, watching Youtube, etc. Funny enough my old Dell Studio 1737 does these tasks without issue but the hinges are destroyed and the iGPU isn't up to the task of acceleration in today's programs.
  3. We got it working. We ended up having to uninstall the Quadro K1000M driver and let it do its thing.
  4. My dad's work laptop is normally used in a docking station where the internal display is off and an external display is used. However, he brought home the laptop for the weekend and when it powers on, we can see the BIOS and the Windows loading screen on the internal display but when the login screen appears, the internal display turns off and goes to the monitor connected to the VGA port. The internal laptop display is shown in device manager as well as Display setting and the nVidia control panel. However, we are unable to activate the internal display no matter what we tried. We tried Function + F4 and nothing happens. Does anyone have any ideas on what's going on? Just to clear it up, the laptop is not plugged into the docking station at home and that's where we are having the issue. The laptop uses a Quadro 1000M running on Windows 10 x64.
  5. I did but I don't remember what the results were. :\ I was writing files but even reading was only 70MB/sec.
  6. I got the speed issues resolved although I'm still getting speeds of 70MB/sec.
  7. Well, the issue is getting the wire fed down. The holes in the sub floor are wide enough for the furnace connections but not for the ethernet cable to easily fit. I'm going to have use a fish tape to get it through. After I get it through the floor, it's a straight shot.
  8. Lucky for me, my room on the second floor is right next to the furnace closet and from the furnace closet to the basement, it's a clear opening with only a gas line and AC lines. I plan on running the wire through the there.
  9. Thankfully, my house isn't wired. I do plan on running an ethernet cable from my basement computer room to my bedroom on the second floor. Fun.
  10. That may be overkill for me. All my networking is within a 5 foot radius of the switch in my computer room.
  11. Oddly enough, my desktop uses Cat5e and my laptop was using Cat5. However, when I switched my laptop over to Cat5e, the speeds remained about 50MB/sec. I also tried using the Cat5 again on my laptop and the speeds were still in the realm of 50MB/sec. One of my goals is replace all my Cat5 and Cat5e with Cat6 or higher sometime.
  12. Hm. Good point. I never thought of contacting TP-Link.
  13. Would the managed version support teaming even though it only has 8 ports?
