  • Can I run two external monitors on my laptop?

    Hello, I recently purchased an HP Pavilion 17-e112dx laptop. I wanted to hook up an external monitor to it, so I purchased an HP 21.5" LED, model E221 running at 1920 x 1080, and it's working out great. I have it plugged into the HDMI port on the laptop. I also have a VGA port on the laptop, so I figured, why not hook up another monitor? I am wanting to purchase another E221 monitor to hookup to this extra video port, and run the two 21.5 inchers side by side with the laptop display turned off.

    My questions are, will running two large monitors at full 1080 resolution be too hard on my processor and video processor, and cause enough of a slowdown where it wouldn't be worth it? The laptop has an Intel Core i3 running at 2.6 Ghz, 4GB of RAM, and the graphics processor is an Intel HD Graphics 4600. Also, would it be ok to close the lid of my laptop while running these two monitors, or would that cause an overheating issue? It doesn't seem like any air is pulled through the keyboard for ventilation, and I do use a cooling pad on the laptop.

    Thank you for any help on this.

  • Which of these IT degrees would you recommend?

    I'm looking at the University of Phoenix and their offerings for a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, and they have a few different concentrations: Multimedia and Visual Communication, Software Engineering, Networking and Telecommunications, Business Systems Analysis, Database Administration, Information Systems Security, and Web Development. The networking one interests me the most, but does anyone have any input on why another one might be better or more beneficial career wise? Thank you very much.

  • Depression disqualify from commercial driver's license (CDL)?

    I'm 25, live in Texas, and was wanting to get a CDL so I could drive for a company such as J.B. Hunt or Central Freight Lines. However I do suffer from mild to moderate depression, for which I do take medication, Zoloft and Remeron. Would this disqualify me from being able to get a CDL? Thanks.

  • Can anyone help with my religious crisis?

    About seven years ago I had a big onset of depression which made me question my religious beliefs, at the time Christian. I lost faith in everything, including God, and became an atheist. The more I looked into religion and philosophy, the more I realized my belief in God not existing was actually based on a lot of good evidence. I have convinced myself that the Christian god doesn't exist, and if a god does exist it is like nothing we humans can imagine. For me to become a Christian again seems silly, like if a hardcore Christian were to become a Hindu. It just wouldn't make sense to me. The problem is, my depression has come back and worsened, and the Christian community seems like a nice place to get support, seeing as they're prevelant and benevolent where I live. And I've never disliked the people, only the idealogy. I want their help, but my eyes have been opened to other ways of thinking, and I can't go back. I wish I'd never started down that path. What should I do?

  • How easy is it to rollover an SUV?

    I've been driving a '95 Saturn SC2 coupe for about 9 years, and recently aquired a hand-me-down '02 Mazda Tribute, a compact SUV. After driving such a low-riding car for several years and now switching to a higher SUV, I'm wondering how easy it would be to flip it over, such as in a turn. You hear about this all the time, and the media makes it seem like you have to be extra extra careful or your vehicle will topple. During a crash, whether or not it will flip is out of your hands, but what about during normal driving? Is there a general rule to follow, such as when taking curves or corners? I believe I'm a safe driver as it is, but I still want to get some feedback on the capabilities of these types of vehicles. Thank you in advance for the help.

  • Ceiling fan won't work, but light fixture does?

    I've got a typical ceiling fan, and I go to turn it on and the lights work fine, but the fan has a problem. It started making a weird buzzing noise, started turning very slowly, then about 10 seconds later the noise stopped along with the fan blades. Now the fan is non-responsive all together. No noise, no spinning from the blades, nothing. I get the same result on all speed settings. This fan is just a few years old, and has worked fine before with nothing bad to speak of. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for the help.

  • Get a nanotechnology certification in the future?

    When modern computers were being developed in the 1960s and 70, network certifications and computer tech certifications weren't yet available from technical schools like they are today. They simply didn't exist yet and the technology wasn't yet developed. As computers became more advanced, jobs opened up and different types of training and certifications were developed, not just research jobs. Now, you can get an MSCE license after passing an exam. Will such things be possible in the future for nanotechnology once it develops more and becomes more practical? Will you be able to get some kind of certification for nanotech work? And without having to go through all the physics, mathematics, etc type classes that you do today to get a job in just researching nanotech?
