    the lightning bolt was one the machine, but it has no "arrow" at the "tail", it is more like an electricity symbol, it googled it a little bit, it said it is an usb plug that can charge you device even when the laptop is off, though mine one is a desktop, so don't know why they put the feature there.
    Seems I read an advertisement recently where that particular port can do exactly that, charge a device like a cellphone even though the computer isn't running. Bear in mind that the modern Desktops, last 15 years or so, have power to the motherboard at all times unless actually unplugged from the power source. The On|Off switch only tells the motherboard to wake up.

    No. The one in the picture is thunderbolt. The one I have has an electricity symbol on it.

    Picture, please

    Please update the Systems Specs in your forum profile with complete information.

    • In the System Manufacturer/Model Number field, manually type Desktop or Laptop adding it to the information already in the field. The specific model number is important - there are often many models of a given series.
      For example, my machine is a HP Pavilion dv6, but there are tens of the dv6 series, so dv6-6c10us is the specific model.

    • Specify Custom Build as the manufacturer if it is not an OEM machine.

    The easiest way to do this is to use the information from a PUBLISHED Speccy report.
    See: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs

    Post the link to the report that Speccy gives you and also open the Speccy link.
    Then click here to view your System Specs on this forum.

    When you have both windows open, put them side-by-side and simply copy the information, field by field, from the Speccy report to your System Specs.

    To see what information other members provide in their System Specs, click on My System Specs in the lower left of any post by any member.

    Thanks
