    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Headset/microphone single socket: how many poles?

    I am considering a 15.6" Initia AKA Clevo NL51RU. It has a single "Headphone-out/ MIC-in phone jack", but there is no specification of how many poles are needed. Presumably this is one of the TRRS standards. All my headsets have separate microphone and headphone connectors, so I will need to buy...

    I am intending to buy a high end NOVA laptop for linux, but there seems to be little available information. I noticed which suggests that PCspecialist sends out systems polluted with Windoze, and that I...

    I see that Clevo now have Ryzen laptops at long last on the website . Unfortunately most if not all of the seem to have nvidia graphics, but perhaps that will change as further models are designed. When will PCSpecialist be offering Ryzen laptops, presumably from this range? Of...

    I can't see an RJ25 port on the new Lafife' laptops. Have I missed it? Surely nobody would build a serious machine without?

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Internal 9 in 1 card reader (mmc..): read only

    I have an Ultranote ii with an internal mmc/sd card reader. It seems to be a Realtex device. It has been working for a couple of years without problems, but now it is treating all cards (sdhc or micro SDHC with adapters) as read only regardless of how the write tab is positioned. My first...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST What is the chip set in the Memory Crad reader? Does it support UHS-1 at full speed?

    I have an Ultranote 15.6" with the 9 to 1 card reader. I know that it is a Realtek unit, but I can't find a part number or chipset identity. But the real question is does it fully support sdxc cards? I am finding a rather low write rate on an sdxc card and I need to be sure that the hardware is...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Keycap on laptop (UltraNote) is coming off

    Somehow (it doesn't get hammered or even used very much) the F10 keycap on this UltaNote 15.6" has come loose. I expected that the key caps could just be pulled off and replaced, if only for cleaning, but when I tried gently to remove the keycap with the intention of refitting, it seemed not to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Wifi 11n (5Ghz band) on Ultranote II

    I have already posted about this on the linux forum here: As I said there, I have an Intel Wireless 7260 supporting 11bgn on a new Ultranote II. I don't seem to be able to get an 11n connection on...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Ultranote II: Touchpad, report mainly

    The touchpad is a synaptics device, so you need the xserver-xorg-input-synaptics package installed. It is well worth reading the man pages for synaptics and synclient. Out of the box, the touchpad does not have many options turned on. It is worth experimenting with settings using synclient to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Wifi 11n (5Ghz band) on Ultranote II

    I have the Intel Wireless 7260 chip which supports 11bgn. I have 11g and 11n working well on 2.4Ghz, and I can get the specified 300 Mb/s under 11n with a 40Hz channel width. So all of that is excellent. However I don't seem to be able to get a 5GHz 11n connection at all. Moreover iw seems to...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Ultranote II: Hot keys (report)

    Hotkeys on the Ultranote II = Clevo W550SU I am using debian testing and xfce4. On first take (around 1 month ago), many of the hot keys did not seem to be working, so it seems worthwhile to post this in case others have problems. First, it appeared that the brightness keys (Fn/F8, Fn/F9)...

    15.6" Ultranote II = Clevo W550SU / W54_55SU1,SUW I was surprised that I had to do a fair bit of work to get sound working properly: I had checked these forums before buying and didn't see any significant problems reported. Perhaps I missed some. Below I describe in some detail how to set up...
