    Can't find the answer, can anyone tell me if the new Surface Laptop 4 will work with a 1st gen Surface Dock?

    Yeah I read that too, but was hoping since the Surface Laptop 4 was *just* released, I figured they haven't updated it yet either way. I haven't been in the office for a while, so I don't have the dock in front of my to look. I thought it had the Surface port on it, but could be wrong. I'll end...

    Have a Surface Laptop 2 for work, and am able to upgrade to the new Laptop 4. Just need to know if my current dock will work with it or if I need to upgrade that as well. Really don't want to if I don't have to.

    Dual NIC question for a networking idiot

    Thanks, I think I can make sense of that info. I really need to learn more about networking. No, I don't want interruptions at all. Even very minor interruptions we have seen in the past when power goes out and we switch from primary to secondary firewalls have caused our software to lose...

    25' DisplayPort cable run for 4k 60hz

    No, we just remodeled and the computers are a little closer than before, but not much. I think I could get away with about 18 feet, but don't think 15 would do it. I'd have to try it I guess. It would be a tight run.

    Dual NIC question for a networking idiot

    Hey, I'm looking at going to a dual NIC setup at work. This would be 100% for redundancy, nothing else. One NIC would go to one switch, and the other NIC going to a backup switch in case of failure or power outage Do I need to get a dual interface card, or can I just get another random NIC and...

    25' DisplayPort cable run for 4k 60hz

    Early next year I'll need to install 19 monitors that will be run at 4k 60hz. The current cables for them are 25'. I have a little slack, but don't think I can get down to 15', so I'll need to stick with 25'. I understand that 4k/60hz is hard to keep past 15'. I need it to be DisplayPort, as...

    HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini PC

    It's neither of those, checked it already. I honestly think it's going BSOD due to an external disk that's plugged in for Plex.

    ^ No RAID. Specifically avoided RAID because they're not any kind of RAID drive, so they're just running independent. I'll run some hardware tests when I get some time.

    HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini PC

    ^^ Thanks, I might have to check that out. I did just power it up and look, and for the last 2 times it did leave a trace in the Windows logs. It wasn't doing that before. No mini-dump to analyze because it's failing to write it. But it does appear to be blue screening, I just can't see it...

    HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini PC

    Thanks! If I don't get any monitoring software suggestions I'll probably give it a try.

    HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini PC

    It's a clean install of Windows, so there's no HP software on it. I could boot to Ubuntu via USB and try that for a week, however I'd have to look into how to get my Plex library on it. I'd guess it's not that difficult.

    HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini PC

    Yeah...I thought about going that route. I'd really prefer to troubleshoot what it's doing though. Computer is still 2 years under warranty with HP. I've had them send a new power supply and new fans thinking it might be heat or power, but nothing there helped. I'm guessing that this point it's...

    Windows 10 Pro x64 - I should have included that.

    HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini PC

    Hey, I have a mini HP computer that I use as a small Plex server. It's just me and the wife, so I don't need anything fancy to run what we watch, and this does it great. Anyway, it's not hooked up to a monitor, as I use it strictly as an RDP box to mange Plex. It is plugged into an HDMI port...

    Looking to build a 8+ bay external enclosure

    800 G2. It's the super small one, no open slots on it at all. I can only do USB.
