Laser Printer:

Known for their efficiency and cost-effectiveness, especially for high-volume printing. Laser printers generally have a lower cost per page compared to inkjet printers and are faster, which makes them ideal for printing documents in duplicate. They are more suitable for office environments where such printing needs are common.

The answer is C:
the question says "DUPLICATE" NOT "DUPLEX (DOUBLE SIDED)". Therefore the only printer that will produce duplicate is an impact printer that will use Perforated White, Pink and Yellow paper and the impact goes through to all sheets.
There is nothing built into a LASER printer that will force printing multiple copies on EVERY print document. You will have to choose 2 copies every time.

B Faulty NIC
the problem is most likely with the user's computer, and the NIC is a prime suspect since it's responsible for network communication.

C. USB-C Hub Issue:
Given that multiple peripherals (monitor, keyboard, mouse, and headset) are not functioning, and all these devices are likely connected through the USB-C hub, the hub could be the common point of failure. Hubs can sometimes malfunction, leading to issues with connected devices

A RAM Issues: Problems with RAM (Random Access Memory) are a common cause of a computer not completing POST. Testing the RAM involves trying different RAM sticks in different slots, one at a time, to isolate if the issue is with a specific RAM stick or a particular slot on the motherboard.
Systematic Approach: This is a part of a systematic approach to hardware troubleshooting – checking each component individually to identify the faulty one.

A. Verify the power rating of the charger.

esco0710
3 months, 2 weeks ago

A.
Power Rating of the Charger: The issue might be related to the charger itself, particularly its power output. Chargers with a lower power rating will charge devices more slowly. Verifying that the charger's power rating is appropriate for the smartphone is a logical first step.
