  1. SSD from Laptop to Desktop


    Hello,
    so my question is how do I change all the registry keys when transferring a SSD from a laptop to a desktop. So recently built a computer to save the $110 it would cost me for a new operating system key I pulled the SSD out of my laptop and used it as the main drive on my new system. The problem is that windows still thinks its a laptop. I get notifications like battery not charging, from options in settings like what to do when lid is open or closed to my power setting and HDR settings aren't really setup correctly. How do I fix windows from thinking it's still plugged into my laptop? should I just do reset PC and keep all my personal files?? I really don't want to lose everything on the SSD, It's the PC I had been using for the last 10 years so everything is the way I want it, except this. Windows 10 1909 about to upgrade to 2004 or whatever the next build number is.

    Thank you
    Windows 10 1909 (about to be 2004 with restart in 2 min)

  2. Swap windows 10 ssd from laptop to desktop

    I have a dell inspiron n5040 and i want to put the ssd in it into my desktop. I custom built my desktop and would rather have the ssd in it. Could i just take out the ssd from the laptop and put it
    in my desktop and all will be fine? I realize i will need to install the drivers and such which is no problem. Any insight would be appreciated.

    SSD from Laptop to Desktop

    Laptop or Desktop for Music production?

    So what I suggested is better then - Desktop.

    Now for the drives, gaming or any fast drive access machine I generally put in a fast 160 or 320 GB drive for OS and add couple of 500 GB drives in Raid 0 for speed. With the cheap drive prices I will suggest that route. Also will suggest him a SSD.

    Sound card - suggest me a good one.
