Reset HP Probook with internal / non-removable battery

Many times in the past I have asked users to unplug their laptop and remove the battery which takes care of many power related laptop issues.  The problem is many of today's modern laptops include a non-removable battery.   This means you can't simply remove the battery to reset the laptop.   Instead try the following, which works for most laptops including the HP Probook G4 series.  
  • Unplug the power from the laptop
  • Press and hold the power button for 20 - 30 seconds
  • Plug the power back in and press the power button once to turn back on
This this doesn't work it is not a simple fix and an service ticket should be created.

Helpful Google Doc Tools

posted Oct 18, 2016, 6:55 AM by Jeremy Noyes

Google has embedded some very helpful tools for students and teachers into its Google Docs platform.  Take a look at the above graphic.

  • Spelling - Everyone uses this feature, nothing new here.

  • Research - Clicking on research allows you to research a topic right from within your document.  

  • Define - Another part of research, allows you to search dictionary terms right from your document.

  • Document Outline - Automatically creates an outline of your document based on formatting such as bold or underline.  

  • Word Count - Self explanatory but great tool for students.

  • Voice Typing - Newer feature that allows you to use your voice to type into the document.  Great tool for those with accessibility needs or requirements.

Duplicate your display to projector

Sometimes when you connect your computer to a projector the image on the projector is blank or just a blue.  If this happens to you, click the Windows Key on your keyboard (4 wavy squares with a circle around it) + the "P" Key.  On the menu that displays, click "Duplicate".  This will ensure what is on your laptop screen will also be on your projector.  

Don't be a victim of a Scam

From time to time you may get an email that tries to trick users into clicking links.  Once you click the link, malicious software could be downloaded onto your computer.  This technique by hackers is called Phishing.  The hacker is "fishing" for information from you and your computer to conduct malicious activity, such as stealing your information or encrypting your files making them unusable.  Don't be a victim, delete emails from unknown senders that look suspicious.  If you get an email from a colleague that looks suspicious, call them to be sure it actually came from them.    When in doubt "DELETE".
