System Builds & Upgrades / HP EliteDisplay 31.5" Monitor
« Last post by scuzzy on Apr 21, 2019, 09:07 AM »
I am quite happy with my 2 Dell 27" monitors, but I have yet to get my wife a replacement. For now she remains happy with her 25" Samsung HD monitor, but it's probably somewhere around 8 or 9 years old. With my luck it probably won't be long before it decides to bite the dust.  ;D

I'm not looking to buy anything just yet, but I'm going to put this on my short list of potential monitors. My wife only needs a single monitor, and for QHD resolution (2560x1440) this might be an ideal size:

Thankfully scanners last a long time, on average. It's usually the driver/software that becomes outdated for newer operating systems.

I'm happy you got it all worked out.

Understood and thanks so much scuzzy.

 I had already been looking for what new scanner I might have to buy. And they're more expensive now than I would have thought.

You only need the driver and the interface. The rest are features you can remove if you don't use them. The only thing I have installed is the driver and the interface called "Epson Scan".

Delete them one-by-one. Worst case scenario is that you'll have to reinstall something.

Using the original Epson 3490 scanner installation disk I have apparently been able to get the scanner to work normally again. Hurrah!

Unfortunately, the disk also installed these on my PC :

 Epson File Manager
 Epson Copy Utility 3
 Epson Event Manager
 Epson Scan Assistant
 Epson Attach to Email
 ArcSoft PhotoImpression 5

Can someone tell me how many of these I can uninstall without adversely affecting use of the scanner?

I have had similar issues with my Epson scanner. I've resolved them in the past with:

1. Moving the cable to a different USB connector
2. Replacing the USB cable
3. Removing and reinstalling the software

Naturally, rebooting inbetween.

Yeah it's me again

My Epson Perfection 3490 Photo Scanner has suddenly stopped producing images.

Everything appears normal. The built-in troubleshooter says "no issues detected, it makes all the usual scanning noises, it has been only very lightly used, but the files it now produces are rectangular white blanks.

I reinstalled the drivers from the Epson support web site.

Any ideas from my favorite experts?

It is a really nice, solid phone mount that I found on Amazon. It's easy to get the smartphone on/off the mount one-handed, and when in use it keeps a death grip on the phone. Despite the constant vibrations, the phone never moves in the slightest. I also like the infinite angle adjustments. I need to find one for my car: TACKFORM phone mount

The Harley GPS itself isn't too bad going down the road (I had it zoomed out in the video), but the BOOM! 6.5 "infotainment" system can be very trying. It's such a terribly designed interface with endless menus, sub-menus and quirks, that it's easy to walk away in total frustration. Nothing is intuitive; nothing makes sense. There is a tutorial available for $20, but I refuse. It shouldn't be that difficult, yet I'm often on YouTube and Harley forums trying to find out how to do a particular function.

Then I look at Indian's entertainment/information/GPS system, and it's stinkin' awesome.
