Tricks Save Laptop Battery

Unplug devices from your laptop

Whether it is a USB device or a second monitor through VGA, any device that is plugged into your laptop eats battery because the device will require CPU to work in order to access the device. There are certain USB devices that consume a great deal of power, meaning they will drain the battery quickly. So, my friend, you should unplug the device you are not using. Never keep it plugged into the laptop. This will surprisingly save your battery.

Shutdown or activate sleep mode when not in use

You are working on your laptop. Suddenly, you have to go on an errand. If the charger is not connected, you should shut down your laptop or activate the sleep mode. This saves the battery. When you activate the sleep mode, your laptop will resume from the point you have left it before. On the other hand, if you shut down the laptop, it will go through the bootup sequence, which may consume a bit of power. So sleeping mode is the best

Doing Some Computer Recycling

· Restoring valuable parts

Although outdated computers are inefficient and ineffective, recycling computer parts can prove very helpful. The choice to recycle computers offers an effective way of preventing valuable parts ending up in landfills. Usable parts can be salvaged, offering ways of reusing or restoring them. Furthermore, the computer can be fixed and resold or donated to charity.

· Saving the environment

Computers are categorized as hazardous household waste. Unfortunately, many of these machines end up in landfills- with batteries being a common feature in many of these landfills. The batteries contain many heavy metals including cadmium and nickel. The cathode ray tubes contain lead while the motherboards have chromium. This ends up adding toxic chemicals to the air, soil and ground water. Recycling computers involves taking a machine that is destined for the landfill and improving their lifespan. Ultimately, the process helps to prevent harmful toxins entering the environment.

· Get some cash

An outdated computer may not sell. However, the decision to recycle the computer makes the computer useful. As a result, the organization will be in a position to fetch some money from reselling the machine. IT recycling is

Choose Desktop Computer Monitor Stand

Build Quality and Material

The most important thing to look out for when selecting a monitor stand is the build quality. The stand should have no flex whatsoever, and should be strong enough to support the monitor’s weight. Besides the flex, there should be no creaking sounds when you fit the monitor onto the stand. This is a sign that the stand is made of poor quality material, which would give way sooner or later.

Also important to note is the material that the stand is made from. Though most monitor arms are made of plastic or other non-magnetic materials, some manufacturers may also use electromagnets for electrical components such as a USB charging port. While you may think this is more “bang for your buck”, the circuitry’s magnetic field can interfere with the electrical components of the monitor, causing more harm than good.

If you are considering a monitor stand with power outlets, make sure the components generate low magnetism. This can be checked with a measuring device, or more conveniently with common household items such as a compass.

Adjustability

This is especially important if you use an LCD monitor, which has

Using Wireless 4G Routers

While the 4G speeds are not quite as fast as the recommended standards yet, most companies are trying hard to achieve it ASAP. The 3G modem is not yet completely phased out either and you can definitely use it as a backup, the advantages of going 4G outweighs the disadvantages heavily. Take a look at the benefits that you can enjoy once you switch to the 4th generation:-

  • The download speeds are considerably faster and can be as much as 7 times that of the old 3G model.
  • The upload speed, unfortunately, remains more or less the same but tech professionals hope to resolve this issue sooner than later.
  • The latest Internet protocol i.e. IPv6 does not duplicate the IP addresses unlike the IPv4.

Staying connected 24X7 has become the catchword now and the young generation along with every business owner wants Internet accessibility no matter where they are. Using a GSM Router has proved to be extremely advantageous therefore. Some of the plus points of this wireless router are as follows:-

  • Internet Accessibility Outside – You can set up a wireless network via your mobile phone wherever you happen to be without having to depend on

Learn About Desktop Computers

Consider the disk burning capabilities of any desktop computers that you are looking at. Consider whether you plan to just watch media or to make your own CDs and DVDs. If you plan on doing the latter, make sure the computer that you want supports it. Not all desktops come with these capabilities.

Consider all-in-one displays desktop computer for your needs. This means that the computer has a large monitor with the majority of its components in the back. They come in many sizes and with and without touch input. They are easier to transport due to less wires. Many also have built-in webcams for easier video conferencing. They work great for entertainment purposes, too.

Don’t overlook the quality of the desktop computer monitor when considering your purchase. The specs of the actual computer may be amazing, but if the monitor is poor, your overall experience will be bad too. Remember, it’s the monitor that you’ll have the most interaction with, so be willing to spend more to get one you like.

If you aren’t a gamer, don’t get suckered into gaming desktop computers. These computers have been souped up with the biggest and baddest

Traders Need A Trading Computer

Trading on your desktop you have had for the last 10 years is possible. It can be done. Should it be done? It’s definitely not recommended. The reasons why this is a bad idea are really fundamental and result in a huge risk. Trading is a very specific activity. It requires the ability to process data in real time. Your trading platform requires quite a bit of processing power. If you didn’t invest in a great computer 10 years ago chances are that your old computer doesn’t have the ability to do any of these things we have just talked about. It won’t have enough RAM on board to run your trading platform and multiple screens. The other huge issue is that your computer’s processor is going to be very outdated and act like a crutch for you in your trading. Even in the past 5 years processors have changed in leaps and bounds. Intel just announced that their most recent processor is about 191% faster than the one it released 5 years ago. Now think about your 10 year old processor and the speeds that it is capable of. This is not good enough for trading. All

Computer Case Cooling

Fan filter assemblies provide you with an opportunity to provide your computer components with the ventilation they need to perform at their best at all times. Items such as hard drives, graphic cards and motherboards all heat up as they operate and if you’re working on your computer all day or night, you will soon feel the heat coming off the machine.

The first tip you should take into consideration when it comes to computer case cooling is to ensure you buy a fan filter assembly that is bigger than required. Ideally buying a larger fan and allowing it to run at a slower speed will provide you with the same ventilation as a smaller fan running at optimum speed. The main benefit to choosing a larger fan over a smaller fan to ventilate the same area is it will be considerably quieter.

Always use a fan filter. Taking advantage of a fan filter assembly for your computer case can save you headaches in the long run. In addition to reducing the risk of a child in the home injuring themselves by sticking a finger in the fast moving fan, the fan filter also reduces any

Computer Repaired Onsite

Build a Gaming PC

Believe it or not having the fun and satisfaction of choosing your graphics card, processor, power supply, motherboards, RAM, hard drive and a case will not lead to a final installation disaster.

You won’t need a soldering gun, sophisticated testing devices or worry about a hospital trip via electrocution! Most of the parts in your home-made computer build will quickly snap together. A few screws will need to be tightened, so if you can use a simple screwdriver you are golden.

The most difficult technical task you may encounter could involve applying some thermal paste between your CPU and heat sink unit. If that task gives you sleepless nights, don’t worry. Many CPU’s have the heat sink and fan attached.

You can build a computer in three easy steps.

The first step is developing a budget for a gaming computer. You can create an economical gaming system for $500 or go radical and spend thousands and thousands. A great homemade computer, handling any of today’s most popular games is usually built for right around $1,000.

Once you have a budget, look at what components are needed and the case you want to put

Green Data Centers Save Energy

The IDC report also finds that energy efficiency progress is slowing. Once the obvious efficiency projects such as isolating hot and cold aisles are completed, additional investment in energy efficiency becomes harder to justify either because of the cost or because of a perception that new initiatives might increase risk. IT managers are highly cautious about implementing aggressive energy management programs because they’re concerned that such measures could threaten uptime IDC reported.

How To Make Your Data Center Eco-Friendly?

1. Consolidate Servers: Turn off any dead servers and optimize your existing servers.

2. Upgrade Servers: Move to energy efficient servers.

3. Change To High-Efficiency Power: This removes inefficiencies with multiple AC/DC conversions.

4. Monitor Power Use: Continuously check the servers for optimal efficiencies. This allows a data center to only use the amount of power needed and doing away with obsolete servers.

5. Implement Natural Cooling: Create effective cooling methods to use outside air. This reduces energy costs by 40 percent!

6. Improve Air Management: Redesign air management to prevent re-circulation of hot air from IT systems.

7. Find Optimal Environment: If possible, pick an environment that has cooler temperatures,

Secure Operating System

Before you think this makes you safer because you use Mac OS X. I have also been able to bypass root level account passwords on a MacBook Pro, running Mac OS X (10.10) Yosemite operating system, using built-in Apple commands. This method also took less than a minute to accomplish.

The security implemented in an operating system and accounts always has a level of vulnerability. Most security measures are feel good methods. Username and passwords, for example, represent single level authentication, identifying who you are, the username and proof that you are who you are, the password. It is said for modern security protocols to require the username to be unique and the password to have a minimum of 16 characters and a random combination of uppercase, lowercase, numbers and special characters to be utilized. 16 digits the extent of the average person to remember their own passwords. With the growing technological advancements of computer processing power, such passwords will eventually be capable of being broken in shorter amounts of time, eventually making them completely useless. Most operating systems store username and password combinations as hash algorithms in specific files that can be viewed as plain text,

Industrial Computer Enclosures

It’s true, you can. However, let’s look at how this could affect your company, hypothetically speaking. Let’s say you have 10 PCs in use on the factory floor and within 12 months five of them become damaged beyond repair due to exposure to dust, dirt, temperature fluctuations and liquids.

Assuming that the cost to replace each PC is £300, your bottom line takes a hit of £1500. That’s bad enough, right? However, there’s a more fundamental problem, which is often an oversight for many businesses.

Yes, a PC can be replaced, but what can’t be undone is production downtime. If you’re using PCs on the factory floor it’s obviously vital to your business operations.

What we’re stressing here is that it stops becoming about the cost to replace PCs, but becomes about the cost of PC downtime. Ultimately, the time it takes to repair a broken-down industrial PC is the opportunity cost of lost production and a lower manufacturing output.

How would your facility cope with 24 hours out of action? In reality, that’s how long it could take to get a PC repaired or replaced.

Then there’s data loss. The PC that
