System Error Beep Codes [Part 2]

574210-7123-57POST ABCs

The computer power-on self-test (POST) tests the computer to make sure it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware is working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process. If the computer passes the POST the computer will have a single beep (with some computer BIOS manufacturers it may beep twice) as the computer starts and the computer will continue to start normally. However, if the computer fails the POST, the computer will either not beep at all or will generate a beep code, which tells the user the source of the problem.

If you’re receiving an irregular POST or a beep code not mentioned below use the POST troubleshooting steps to determine the failing hardware component. Continue reading

Google Search Tips

goAbout 85% percent computer people use google to find the content they wish. But, they won’t land in exact location/result. To obtain the best results from Google, read the following tips and use them to search. You do share this with others for social cause.

1)     Use Quotes:

Usually, when you type the search term without quotes then Google will look for the pages containing any of the word in the search term. Say for example, if you type “anthem of India” without quotes, then Google will list out all the WebPages containing the word “anthem” or “India”, but it won’t show the desired search results as we want pages containing the whole term.

Drag and drop to the command line

          Tech Tip: Create Bootable USB Pen Drive for Windows 7

                When working with files with a long file path instead of typing the full path drag-and-drop a file into the command line. For example, if you needed to copy the picture.jpg file from F:\tiportal\path\tips\samples\image\ directory you could open that folder in Windows Explorer and drag and drop the file into the command line to have “F:\tiportal\path\tips\samples\image\ picture.jpg” entered into the command line.

Note: This tip does not work in Windows Vista.

Tip: If you’re having difficulty with the path being copied in Windows 7, make sure you’re running the command line as Administrator.

Here is a five-step procedure to make desktop good with no tools required.
