Remember the Five Points, Increase Your Hard Disk Life

computer skill:Remember the five points, Increase your hard disk life.

1. Do not suddenly turn off the power when your hard disk working.

When the hard disk working, generally in high-speed rotation, if we suddenly turn off the power, may lead to a violent head and the disc friction and damage to the hard disk, so to avoid the sudden shutdown. Shutdown must pay attention to the hard disk light is still flashing on the panel, only in its light stops blinking, turn off the computer's power switch before the end of the hard disk read and write.

2.To prevent dust from entering. Read more

CPU Troubleshooting

CPU Troubleshooting

1.The noise of the chassis.

Fault phenomenon: to upgrade the CPU, the computer every time you turn noise particularly large. But after a while, the voice returned to normal.
Fault Analysis and Processing: First check whether the CPU fan fix bad chassis work and structure of some low-quality, easily in the boot of work caused by resonance, increased noise, in addition to the CPU fan and chassis fan motor add a little oil to try. If it is, it is best to replace the chassis because the chassis of the box single book.

2.The temperature rising too quickly.

Fault phenomenon: a computer running when the CPU temperature rose quickly, boot and only a few minutes the temperature rose from 88 ° F to 124 ° F and when 128 ° F to stabilize, no longer rising. Read more

Computer Failure Caused by CPU Problems

Computer Failure Caused by CPU Problems

Computer failure caused by CPU is although varied, but also summed up in nothing less than the frequent crashes, POST displays the operating frequency of repeated changes, and can not boot due to excessive overclocking, and system power-up without any reaction of several way.Of course,we should cope them in different ways.

1.Frequent crashes

This computer failure are quite common, mainly due to generally poor work by the cooling system,

What Is the Difference Between BIOS and CMOS ?

What is the difference between BIOS and CMOS

In the daily operation and maintenance of computer process, often hear a number of statements about the BIOS settings and CMOS settings , many people often confuse the BIOS and CMOS. This article describes the CMOS settings and BIOS settings of distinction between the basic concepts and linkages.

What is BIOS?

The BIOS, is actually a computer's Basic Input-Output System, its content integrated in the computer a ROM chip on the motherboard, the main computer system holds the most important basic input and output procedures, system information set , turn the power on self test procedures and systems bootstrap procedures.

Function of the BIOS

BIOS ROM chip can not only see on the motherboard, and the BIOS management board to a large extent determines whether the performance is superior. BIOS management features include:

1. BIOS interrupt service routine

BIOS interrupt service routine is essentially a programmable interface between the hardware and software in the computer system, mainly used a interface between hardware and software . For example, DOS and Windows operating system on floppy disks, hard drives, optical drives, keyboards, monitors and other peripheral equipment management, are built directly into the system BIOS interrupt service routine basis, and the operator can also access the INT 5, INT 13 other breakpoints directly to call BIOS interrupt service routine.

2.BIOS system setup

Computer components configuration records are placed in the CMOS RAM chip, mainly preserved in the basic situation of the system, CPU features, soft and hard drives, monitors, keyboards and other parts of the information. In the BIOS ROM chip with "System Setup", mainly used to set the parameters of the CMOS RAM. This program in boot time by pressing a particular key enter setup mode, and provides a good interface for the operator to use. In fact, this set the CMOS process parameters also called "BIOS settings." Once the CMOS RAM chip on the computer configuration information is incorrect, the light will make the system to reduce the overall operating performance, soft and hard drives and other components can not be identified, which will lead to a serious system hardware and software failures.

3. POST Power On Self Test

Computer power on, the system first by POST (Power On Self Test) procedure to check each device on the internal. Usually complete POST will include the CPU, 640K base memory, 1M or more extended memory, ROM, motherboard, CMOS memory, serial and parallel, video card, keyboard, harddisk subsystems for testing, once the self-test problems are detected, the system will give a message or a warning whistle.

4. BIOS boot bootloader

After system completed POST, ROM BIOS on the first follow the system CMOS settings stored in the boot sequence search for soft and hard drives and CD-ROM, network servers effectively boot drive, read into the operating system boot record, then gives the system control to the boot record,and lets boot record to complete the system by a smooth start.
