Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro display blanks when on battery?! [SOLVED]

Q. When I unplug my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro from the wall the screen goes blank. When I plug it back in the screen comes on. Unplug it and it goes off again?! How do I fix this! -Terri A.

Please try pressing your brightness+ key (it looks like a little sun with a plus sign and it is shared with the F6 function key) and see

Best monitor resolution for SC2?

Q. I read your blog and it looks like you and I share a common interest in Starcraft 2. Can you recommend which is the best resolution for SC2 from a competitive point of view? -Elly Edge A. For maximum Starcraft 2 competitive advantage, you will definitely want a monitor with a 16:9 aspect ratio* as that aspect ratio lets you see the largest amount of terrain. 🙂 Here is an imagine that illustrates the difference between 16:9, 16:10 and

New video card for 4K UHD and Starcraft 2 SC2 HotS

Every four years or so I invest in a new video card. The latest edition, ordered today, is the GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB card. I actually meant to order a BOOST edition but somewhat mistakenly ordered the ‘OC’ edition. 🙁 However, I like the overall features of the card and if it performs well enough I will keep it. 🙂 Otherwise, I may return it and look at a GTX 760. My general usage scenarios will be

What resolution is qHD? ANSWERED

Q. Hello. I am planning on getting a new Android smartphone. The web page talking about the phone says its screen is qHD resolution, what is that? -Cindy A. qHD resolution is 960×540. Resolution in this case refers to how many horizontal and vertical pixels the screen has. qHD is interesting because it qualifies as “quarter high definition”.

Secure LCD TV/monitor lock (for hotels, businesses)

Ultimate triple monitor setup (for work, not particularly for gaming)

While preparing to redo my office, I am planning the “ultimate” LCD monitor setup. Let me clarify that I mean ultimate for my purposes: server management (RDP/SSH/etc.), email, spreadsheets, some image editing, minimal gaming. This is not ultimate in the gaming sense nor is it going to be as wild as some of the setups I have blogged about! UPDATE: 2011.11.01 [end update] Currently I am  using a Dell M6500 docked with a dual monitor setup: 30″ Dell 3007WFP – I
