Computer CPU

You seem to find that your system has stopped functioning well. It has gone slow, applications have lately been crashing and you are also facing the problem of ‘Blue Screen’. You might wonder whether it is the computer’s hardware that has been failing or it is a software related problem that can by fixed on your own. It may not be simple to figure that out. This is because software problems, as well as, hardware problems can often show similar symptoms. For instance, often you might encounter blue screen problem that might have been occurring due to hardware or software problems.

Your computer has become slow

You must have heard about all such stories about slowing down of a computer over a period as the user had installed too many software that started functioning at startup or because it was attacked by a malware. The user eventually came to a conclusion that his system had become slow as it was an old one and so he got it replaced.

However, the belief was not correct. In case, you encounter a situation where your system has slowed down, it might be having a problem in software that can be easily taken care of.  You must note here that your computer does not slow down due to hardware problems. It is true that there are a few exceptions to this rule when the CPU has got overheated and has been down clocking itself and running at a slower speed to remain cooler. However, most of the times, your system becomes slow due to software issues.

Blue screen problem

Present versions of Microsoft Windows are quite stable as compared to the earlier versions. If the drivers of your system are well programmed and makes use of reliable hardware, a windows based PC should not throw the issue of blue screen. However, if you are experiencing frequent blue screen related problems, there is a probability that the hardware of your PC is failing.

However, it is also true that if your hardware drivers are not programmed well, your computer can witness blue-screen related issues. In case you have recently upgraded or installed your hardware drivers and then the occurrences of blue screen problem have started, uninstall the driver. You can also use the system restore option. However, if you have not touched your drivers lately and still face this problem, there is a great likelihood that it is a hardware related issue.

Your computer is not booting

In case you find that your computer fails to boot, it can be having either a hardware issue or a software-related problem. Have you observed whether Windows has been trying to boot but failed midway during the booting process? Does your system unable to identify its hard drive or not getting powered on at all? You need to consult the troubleshooting guide in such a scenario.

What happens when hardware components start failing?

CPU:  If the CPU has failed, your system may not boot at all. On the other hand, if your CPU has got overheated, your system may enter ‘Blue Screen’ problem when it is under stress.
Hard Drive: In case the hard drive of your system has begun to fail, the files might get corrupted. You can then experience delays whenever you try to access a file or save files in your hard drive. There may be scenarios when even the operating system might stop booting.

RAM: You must be aware that RAM is the location where data gets written by the various applications. It is used to store data for a short-term. In case, your system’s RAM is about to fail, an application may have written its data to RAM but while trying to retrieve it later, it might get a wrong value. This would ultimately crash the application and lead to other problems like file corruption and blue screens.

Motherboard: Problems associated with your system’s motherboard night be quite tough to detect. You might occasionally encounter blue screens or similar issues.

Other problems: In case a computer slows down, it can be due to software -related issues.
However, you just cannot rule out the occurrences of several of these symptoms due to software-related issues. Harmful malware might invade the kernel of your Windows Operating system and cause blue screen problem. Though some ideas have been explained to show the differences between the two types of problems, but it is not quite easy to diagnose at times. So often troubleshooting is done using a trial and error method.

For possible attacks on your system by a harmful malware, your computer should be scanned at regular intervals. The sure-shot method of ascertaining if the problem is hardware or software related is to try restoring your system’s software status to the default state. You can check if the issue still exists after restoring the OS to its original state. If the problem still persists, there could a hardware issue.

Old Personal Computer

The word ‘computer’ refers to a device or person that possesses the capability to compute. The earliest computer was invented a little more than half a century ago. In fact, the term PC or Personal Computer, which we are all used to by now, did not exist until the first home computer hit the commercial markets.

Our generation is so used to the PC; we practically use it for everything today. But, did you know that the modern PC is the result of a spectrum of technological evolution that occurred over decades. Well, if you didn’t, here’s a brief look at all the technologies that have led to the enhanced version of the PC as we know it today.

Magnetic drums and vacuum tubes

The first “computers” were very different from what we use now. They were fed power using vacuum tubes and storage was handled using magnetic drums. The vacuum tubes were used to control the flow of electricity via a sealed container. The container was composed of transparent glass and shaped roughly similar to a cylinder. The magnetic drums used for storage were basically cylinders coated with metal and a material called magnetic iron-oxide.

The first computer was called the ENIAC (Electric Numerical Integrator and Computer) and John Presper Eckert and John Mauchly invented it. The ENIAC’s construction included 70,000 resistors, 17,458 vacuum tubes, 1,500 relays, 10,000 capacitors, 6000 manual switches, and 5,000,000 soldered joints. It was a massive machine that covered the 1800 square feet and weighed over 25 tons. The ENIAC could carry out large-scale calculations within a second. To be more precise, that included 38 divisions, 357 multiplications or 5,000 additions.

However, due to the complex parts involved, re-programming the computer would take up to a week and maintenance was required round the clock. ENIAC was also an expensive machine to run and its application was limited to very specific tasks. Other problems included overheating and extremely high electricity consumption.

The advent of transistors

By 1956, vacuum tubes were replaced by a new technology that allowed computers to run transistors. Transistors had a significant impact on how electronics were developed and they were mich more dependable than vacuum tubes. Thanks to transistor, computers became more efficient, smaller, cheaper, and also, faster. This was also the time symbolic language like FORTRAN and COBOL came into play. These languages would eventually build the foundation for advanced programming languages of the future.

Eventually, even transistors had to be replaced with something better because they were causing drastic heating issues that led to internal damages.

Integrated circuits


By 1964, transistors were on the way out and being replaced by integrated circuits. Integrated circuits were a huge advancement in the field of semi-conductor technology. They paved the way for miniature transistors to be mounted on silicon chips. Some would say that this was the beginning of the modern computer. These integrated circuits improved things in a major way. Speeds improved and computers became way more efficient. Added to that, computers became smaller and could be accessed by a larger audience. Eventually, keyboards replaced punch cards and the monitor display was integrated into the system. This phase also saw operating systems come into play, allowing the execution of multiple applications on a single system.

The PC is born

The 4th generation saw the rise of the personal computer. This phase in the evolution of computers saw the development of microprocessors and it happened during the year 1971. Intel developed the first chip and it was called the 4004. Microprocessors consist of several integrated circuits on a single silicon chip. The chip played host to the CPU, input controls, output controls, and memory. The technology was simple leaps and bounds ahead of the previous generations.

A decade from this point, the world saw the launch of the first home computer or PC, which was introduced into the market by IBM. Apple with its signature Macintosh or the Mac soon followed IBM, as we refer to it now.

From here on, several iterations of the PC began to evolve, including the portable laptop.

The Internet and GUI

The next phase saw the creation of computer networks, which eventually led to the development of what we now refer to as the ‘internet’. This was also the same time advanced versions of GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) came into being. GUIs are what allow us to use mice and keyboards to navigate our respective operating systems.

The Internet, on the other hand, needs very little introduction. Thanks to the Internet, our PCs today are more than just computing machines. They serve every task imaginable from allowing us to communicate with several people across the globe to even choosing our favorite kind of entertainment. 

Today’s PCs still run on microprocessors, however, on versions that are highly advanced compared to their predecessors.

Azure is a cloud computing platform and infrastructure from Microsoft you can use for building, deploying and managing applications and services through a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed and Microsoft partner-hosted datacenters.

Recently, five major new features have been added to Microsoft Azure, including some expansions to existing features. These new features and additions are sure to be of interest to a wide range of users.

Azure to Integrate with Akamai CDN

Although Microsoft has always enjoyed a close relationship with Akamai, early in 2016, Azure users will be able to deploy content into the Akamai content delivery network and buy Akamai offerings through their Azure self-service portal. This will allow users to reach a broader audience, particularly in Latin America and Asia.

PowerShell Almost Ready

The preview release of Azure Powershell 1.0 arrived earlier this month. With it, you can manage Azure resources and services from the command line instead of through a graphical user interface (GUI.) However, it’s a huge change that it is not compatible with previous versions.

Azure App Service Supports Go

Support for Google’s Go with Web apps was added to Azure earlier this month. Currently, only Go 1.4.2 and Go 1.5.1 are supported in their 64-bit forms and the whole package is experimental at present. Azure will configure the web.config file if needed for the app, but you can supply your own if your implementation requires custom settings. Eventually, Go support on Azure with offer full support status.

Azure Backup Improved

Azure Backup has grown to provide backup support for Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint Server, Microsoft Exchange, and Windows Clients. The cost of backups is two-fold. There’s one charge for the size of the instance itself ($5 and up) and a charge for the storage used by the backup. The range of products covered by Azure Backup will likely continue to expand.

Azure File Storage Has SMB

Azure File Storage performs conventional Windows file shares via the SMB 3.0 protocol in the cloud. The idea is to support existing applications as they are moved to the cloud, some of which might depend of Server Message Block share operations. These shares can be mounted anywhere, allowing cloud and on-premises applications to share storage and data in a recognizable way.

It should be noted that clients connecting to an Azure File Storage share will be limited by their level of SMB support. SMB 2.1 for Windows 7 lacks support for encryption; Windows 8 and up, as well as Windows Server 2012 and up supports SMB 3.0, but most recent Linux distributions support SMB 3.0.

Though it might appear that the good old desktop maybe on its way out, thanks to the growing proliferation of mobile devices and technology, the truth is actually quite contrary. Desktops are here to stay and will, most likely, continue to do so. If you find that hard to believe, just take a look around any office environment.

To make things more interesting, the world of desktop innovation is charging ahead with the development of several tools oriented towards PC use. Whether it's file editing or accounting, there has been a massive inflow of desktop applications for multiple purposes in the past couple of years. Here is a list of some of the applications that are actually worth taking a look at, if you still happen to be a hardcore desktop fan.

Free Commander XE

Free Commander XE

If you are getting too tired of the same old windows explorer layout, then the Free Commander XE is the answer to all your prayers. The application lets you divide your layout into two independent panes making navigation and multi-tasking much easier. Plus, you also get a nice add-on package containing very useful single-click features. Installation is also quite smooth and problem free.

SeaMonkey

SeaMonkey

The SeaMonkey is Mozilla's product suite that comes with applications such as the Thunderbird email client, Firefox web browser, and HTML editor. The HTML editor, especially, is quite a stand-out product. Though it cannot compete with the likes of professional programs such as Adobe Dreamweaver, it does get the job done. From basic HTML assembly to tag structure examination, the Mozilla HTML editor takes care of it all.

GIMP

The GIMP stands for GNU Image Manipulation Product. It is a free application that is gaining widespread appreciation as a viable alternative to the big boss, Adobe Photoshop. In fact, it provides almost the same level of functionality and features that can be found on Photoshop. It offers support for multiple image formats and even Photoshop brushes. Apart from that, GIMP uses the same layer-based approach and editing features you'll find on Adobe's flagship image editing program. Added to that, there are tons of third party scripts and add-ons available for use.

7-Zip

7-Zip

If you are tired of file compressing programs such as WinRAR or WinZip, then 7-Zip is here to save the day. The application is absolutely free and supports several compression formats. It is pretty much a one-stop solution that can very well replace WinZip and WinRAR altogether.

AbiWord

AbiWord

If OpenOffice does not satisfy your need for an alternative to Microsoft Word, then AbiWord is what you are looking for. Designed to emulate most of the MSWord features and functionalities, AbiWord serves as a perfect free of cost replacement to the original Windows product. It even lets you collaborate with other AbiWord users through a network allowing real-time execution on the same document.

Acer’s Budget Ultraportable TravelMate B

If ultraportables have seemed elusively out of reach, Acer’s new machine the TravelMate B also going by the model number TMB115-MP-C23C, may offer some respite.

Affordable touch-screen ultraportable

Acer’s ultraportable is a laptop that comes at a highly competitive and very affordable $379. This may seem a tad higher than others in the budget segment, but keep in mind that the TravelMateB is a touch-enabled device that comes loaded with Windows 8.1. The TravelMate B has a 10 point touch screen system which is almost unheard of at this price point. The touch screen adds a bit to its price tag, with cheaper alternatives in non-touchscreen variants available from the likes of HP.  An added bonus is the two-year warranty that Acer offers for this laptop, compared to the usual one year that is the norm.

Its polycarbonate frame in black matte is a diminutive 0.83 x 11.5 x 8.5 inches (height/width/depth) and comes with a 11.6-inch screen that’s big enough to get the job done. Don’t expect any wonders from its LCD screen that comes in a 1366 x 768 resolution and you won’t be disappointed. Easy to travel with, it weighs in at 2.89 pounds.

Flexibility and connectivity

It comes equipped with multiple ports making it a handy device for daily use at work or home. Users will find the flexibility of having two USB 2.0 ports, as well as USB 3.0 port and an SD card slot along with an HDMI port and Ethernet port a big plus. Add to that the thoughtfully included HDMI to VGA adapter and you have a machine that is handy to hook up to an older style monitor as well. The WiFi is enabled to work on 5GHz networks as well as 2.4GHz networks, while the wireless connectivity comes from Bluetooth 4.0.

Packing some decent processing power

The TravelMate B comes with the processing power of the quad-core Intel Celeron N2940.  And while it doesn’t top the charts, it isn’t a straggler either, coming in at a healthy midway ranking on most tests. The integrated Intel HD graphics and its 1.83 GHz processor don’t pack enough of a punch to let you do any serious gaming, but it does fine on regular processing, browsing and Photoshop usage tests.

The TravelMate B has better memory and more storage capacity than most others in the budget segment with 4GB RAM and 500GB storage capacity.

A battery that keeps giving

The big thing the ultraportable from Acer has going for it, is the healthy 7 hours plus battery life. It may not quite compare to the nine hours a new MacBook 12 inch, but then again, it is so much more affordable.

Dell

Laptop manufacturer Dell does not have a many tablet products as Apple, Samsung or Lenovo but it is now making up for lost time by moving into the market with trendy products. Close on the heels of Venue 8 7000 which won Best of CES award, Dell has now launched the Venue 10 which is an enhanced version of Venue 8 7000. This improved version is larger in size and has a cylindrical battery attached to the lower edge that increases battery life by more than 7 hours and also has slots for setting up detachable keyboard.

The new cylindrical battery also has built in stereo speakers that are ideal for outdoors when ambient sound can influence tablet’s sound. The launch of windows 8 that is a tablet friendly operating system has led to growing demand for tabs that are slimmer and lighter than laptops and have similar features.

Design and Layout of the Dell Venue 10, 7000

Lenovo

Though the tab looks a little like Yoga Tablets of Lenovo its hinge does not flip out into a kickstand, you can attach the tablet into a keyboard and turn it into a regular laptop. The tablet which is slated for release in April 2015, has a slim body made of brushed aluminum and is ergonomically designed. As this version is targeted towards the business class it has responsive keyboard with a strong backlight that makes it easy to use in a dark room. Its keyboard cannot be attached to any other tablet as it attaches itself into to the battery extension from which it draws power.

Intel Atom processor powers the Venue 10 and it runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop operating system to give it super power to zoom through processes. The 2 GB RAM provides enough speed and capacity to run multiple applications while the camera application allows users to blur and brighten or add contract to pictures.

Display and Applications

The screen resolution of this tablet is the same as previous one at 2560*1600 that is spread across 10.5-inch display. It also contains Intel’s 8-megapixel Real Sense 3D camera with rear shooter and stereoscopic 720 pixel cameras that can capture different layers of each shot. The large size of the tablet makes it easy to take pictures without obstructing cameras with fingers while shooting at high speeds.

To make it easy to use for businessmen the makers have installed Android for Work management tools so company specific programs can be installed and access to certain work data can be blocked if stolen. But users can also personalize the tablet with consumer grade applications from Play Store or Google Play. With the Bluetooth enabled keyboard and 32 GB storage the tablet could put you back by $629 in the United States.

Linux

Technology, in recent times, has become a core part of all business related operations. So much so, that companies spend considerable amounts of money, time and other resources in order to ensure the proper setup of a technological infrastructure. This move towards a technology centered business and work environment only continues to expand and grow as time passes.

OS X Yosemite

As a business yourself, you probably put in a lot of effort in setting up your IT infrastructure as well, or maybe, you are in the process of doing so. You've probably noticed that one of the most major concerns about setting up a proper IT infrastructure was or is finding the right operating system (OS) for your systems. The most obvious choices would've included either the Apple OSX or the more common Microsoft Windows. But, there is and has always been another player in the game. A dark-horse by the name of Linux. If you haven't considered trying or switching to this OS, here are reasons why you should.

Cost-effective

The term 'cost-effective' wouldn't be the right term to describe the budget friendliness aspect of Linux because the fact is, the OS is absolutely free. All you have to download it from the company website and install it onto your systems. This is obviously a huge advantage, considering the facts that it’s rivals are quite expensive, especially the OSX operating system from Apple. Plus, Linux is also open-source, which means you get to do what you want with it. You can customize or modify it to suit your requirements.

User friendly

Though this was not the case earlier, Linux has changed a lot since its initial arrival. The system is just as easy to use as any other major operating system. It uses standard Unix commands and has a layout that is almost the same as any other commercial Unix based operating system. Though, the average user might find the dependence on keyboards too much to handle, it's a small price to pay for the flexibility and power that comes with Linux.

Those who are particular about a Graphical User Interface can always opt for add-ons such as Kubuntu and ZorinOS.

Security

Being an open-source platform, Linux has dedicated communities revolving around its development. Everyday, these communities work towards providing the latest bug and security fixes. On the other hand, popular OS options such as Windows and OSX depend on their parent companies to come up with security patches, which aren't always regular.

Low-resource requirement

Linux depends on minimal resources to operate and therefore, rarely faces performance issues. This isn't the case with an OS like Windows, because as systems get older, they become unable to support its high-resource requirements.

MSI GT 80 Titan SLI

Hard core gamers have longed for the comfort and rigidity of a mechanical keyboard since a long time. But not anymore! MSI has started a new era of first gaming beasts with a lesser-known feature for gaming laptops like mechanical keyboard. Pack it with a powerful Intel Core i7 processor and two NVidia GeForce GPUs in SLI and the much-needed ability to upgrade your hardware later, and you’ve built yourself a perfect replacement to desktop that you always deserved.

The great features

With amazing gaming performance, upgradable chassis and fantastic mechanical keyboard, this is surely a tough opponent for every gaming rig out there. Here is what MSI GT Titan SLI has to offer:

Design

MSI understands that an imposing but graceful design is perfect for such a gaming beast. This explains the extremely elegant black aluminum lid, brushed lightly. The red MSI Gaming Series emblem at the back along with the MSI logo simply adds class to the package.

It greets you with an amazing red back lit keyboard. Buttons for power and fan speed are placed above the track pad, to the right of the keyboard. Its carriage (rear and under) is made of black aluminum alloy, and the whole system design gives you the feeling of handling a muscle machine.

Keyboard

Keyboards with mechanical switches are far more durable than the ones with membrane switches and the Titan SLI keyboard has been tested to last 50 million keystrokes. It also provides a much stronger feedback than other gaming laptops in the market.

Display

The MSI GT 80 Titan SLI sports a 18.4-inch screen which is vivid, with crisp detail and expansive viewing angles. While a 4K display would have been truly awesome, the laptop's 1920 x 1080 panel is efficient enough to deal with anything you throw at it.

MSI GT 80 Titan SLI

Graphics and gaming

MSI has equipped their new gaming beast with not one but two Nvidia GeForce GTX 890 GPUs that deliver face-melting performance. You can run nearly any game on 'Ultra' graphics settings and it'll never make you feel a single glitch.

The touchpad and numpad combo

Pressing an illuminated Num button on the top-left nook of the touchpad changes it into a digital numpad. The two discrete mouse buttons provide powerful feedback, with a pleasant audible click that absolutely complements the mechanical keyboard.

The not-so-great features

  • Even though the laptop's 1920 x 1080 panel is amazing and crisp, a 4k display would have just made this a perfect gaming masterpiece
  • The laptop has a poor battery performance, even for a gaming laptop.
  • While the pair of Dynaudio speakers does sound fine, MSI could have used more bass to power the speaker.

The verdict

MSI's GT 80 Titan SLI has it all. It delivers amazingly fast performance every time you turn it on. All this, and it also sports a mechanical keyboard that delivers both superior precision and outstanding feedback.

GT 80 Titan SLI – Starting price: $3,399

OS X Yosemite

When it comes to computerizing your workplace, there are a lot of complex and confusing decisions to be made. One of those decisions is to choose the right kind of operating system for your workstations. Each operating system comes with its own set of strengths and weaknesses.

You will have to find one that would suit your operations and overall business better. In this scenario, it would be ideal to look at all your options and test them against your requirements. Here are the top OS options available in the market for you to take a look at.

The Big 2

Though there are more OS options available, the 2 most popular and widely used options include Windows and OSX and therefore, our comparisons will be limited to these options. To start off, we will take a look at Windows first.

Windows: Microsoft's Windows is the staple operating system for more than half the organizations around the world because it is highly flexible and compatible with multiple programs and software. This high level of flexibility and compatibility comes in handy, especially, if your organization has to constantly collaborate on work or share files with clients or other businesses.

Windows is also quite user friendly, which means you won't have to spend considerable amounts of money or time trying to train employees. In fact, windows is so common that most of your employees probably know their way around it.  Speaking of the flexibility mentioned earlier, Windows can be used with multiple hardware options giving you the freedom to pick and choose only the components that you would require.

Coming to the drawbacks, the truth is that windows has many. One of the main issues with windows is security. This OS has a wide list of viruses and other computer infections that it falls victim to on a regular basis. The other issue is that of hardware and software maintenance. Owing to the large number of software and hardware options available for Windows, not every configuration can be tested officially. This results in a lot of configuration problems and eventually leads to instability.

Nevertheless, Windows makes a good option if you aren't too concerned about security or regular maintenance.

OSX: Though not as common as the Windows OS, it is, nevertheless, considered to be far superior by its patrons. Apple's OSX is the dream operating system for those involved in content creation. It's built on the Unix platform, which gives it a wide range of advantageous features.

It also hosts applications that are optimized for the purpose of content creation, be it textual or visual. It is also extremely easy to operate and users constantly praise it for its brilliant interface. Work processes become smoother and problem free with OSX. It is also very secure compared to windows since there aren't too many viruses or malware designed for OSX.

However, there are drawbacks even to OSX. To begin with, OSX is an expensive program and would not be feasible unless your work involves continuous content creation. Even the annual updates tend to burn a hole in company budgets. The other issue is that it isn't compatible with multiple hardware or software options like Windows. OSX runs only on Apple hardware, which means you will have to buy the complete Apple system, which isn't cost-friendly at all. So, unless you are an organization whose service involves constant content creation, OSX isn't for you.
