How do you tell if your laptop power port is the problem or your power charger?

I use a multimeter. Plug in the adapter. Then touch one probe to the negative part of the plug (usually the outer casing) and the other to the positive contact (typically a pin inside the plugs outer casing). Your looking for a match on the voltage and amperage listed under “output” on the sticker on the adapter. You don’t need to worry about touching the positive probe to the negative contact and vise versa, it will not hurt it and you’ll get the same reading either way. If you see voltage or amperage that jumps around from high to low a lot, Ditch that adapter immediately, it can seriously damage anything it’s plugged into. If the voltageis off by just a bit that’s ok, same…

How to Improve Your Home WiFi

Move your wireless router If your house suffers from weak Wi-Fi, the first step to look at the placement of your wireless router. Make sure it’s out in the open (even if it is ugly) and in the centre of the home if possible, free from obstructions. Don’t hide it on the floor, behind your computer or TV. try to elevate it – Wi-Fi signals have an easier time traveling down and sideways than up. Does your router have movable antennae? The Wi-Fi signal beams out from the sides of the antenna, and up (perpendicular to the router) is usually best so the signal doesn’t shoot into the ground or ceiling. Update your wireless router If the weak Wi-Fi continues despite moving the router, the next step to upgrade your wireless router. The oldest to…

Common Laptop Fixes

1. Overheating Symptom: Computer crashes, freezes Solution: Clean out air vents, put filtered material over the inhalation vent, or update BIOS Overheating can rob your laptop of performance and often cause a host of hiccups, such as system crashes and freezing. Every computer generates lots of heat, but laptops are especially susceptible to overheating due to their small size and lack of ventilation. Excessive dust can clog air vents and deprive your system of cold air to cool off the CPU. You can often solve overheating issues simply by cleaning out these air vents with a cloth or keyboard cleaner.To prevent further dust buildup, place a piece of filtered cloth, say from a Swiffer, over the inhalation vent. Don’t place one over the exhaust vent, as that’s…

The First GUI Personal Computer, The Xerox Alto

The Xerox Alto was the first computer designed from its inception to support an operating system based on a graphical user interface (GUI), later using the desktop metaphor.The first machines were introduced on 1 March 1973, a decade before mass market GUI machines arose. The Alto uses a custom multi-chip central processing unit (CPU) filling a small cabinet, and each machine cost tens of thousands of dollars despite its status as a personal computer. Only small numbers were built initially, but by the late 1970s about 1,000 were in use at various Xerox labs, and about another 500 in several universities. Total production was about 2,000 systems. The Alto became well known in Silicon Valley and its GUI was increasingly seen as the future of computing. In 1979, Steve Jobs arranged a visit to Xerox PARC, in which Apple Computer personnel would…

Is 8-bit Dead?

Engineers have been heralding the death of 8-bit microcontrollers for years. First 16-bit was supposed set to be it’s executioner then, 32 bit then surely 64 bit would have landed the coup-de-grace of 8 bit. But somehow it has stuck around. For small devices like digital counters, thermometers, and other sensors 8 bit chips like AVR or PIC provide a cheap and easy solution for controlling digital IO. 8 bit has also carved out a niche in the IOT market, whereas the 16 bit and 32 bit processors are used for more complex tasks like mesh networking 8-bits will never die for the reasons of ease of use, cost of entry, and low power. Large industries (automotive, consumer appliances) are cost driven. No automotive vendor will use 32-bit platform…

Intel’s New Optane Memory

Intel’s optane memory, released last year, claims to be a new innovation in memory technology. I came across a stick of this memory in a new 2018 HP desktop that made it’s way into the shop for repairs. Immediately it struck me as odd. It’s elongated shape crammed with BGA chips was placed beside the wifi card in a PCIe Mini slot. Intel claims this memory architecture is faster than NAND flash yet slower than DRAM, functioning as a sort of cache between the HDD or a standard SSD and RAM. This makes sense because there are obvious bottlenecks when fetching data from a slow device like an HDD. This technology will ideally increase the feed rate of data to the CPU. In fact,  Optane is basically…

Best Upgrades For Your Laptop

Add an SSD Adding a solid-state drive (SSD) is the single biggest hardware change you can make to speed up a laptop. It makes everything faster; booting up, shutting down and launching apps will all occur in the blink of any eye when compared to traditional hard drives. More and more laptops are coming with built-in SSDs, but not all of them do. And if your old laptop has a traditional hard drive inside, you can crack it open for a significant speed boost at a reasonable price. A 256GB SSD, which is a decent capacity for most users, can cost as little as $75. Upgrade Your RAM You should have at least 8GB of RAM. These days, your best bet is to buy your…
