    Tips for buying Computer monitor

    To add more, I would give would be do some research as to who is building the best panels at the moment, then shop around for a monitor using that panel with the best pixel/warranty policy attached to it. That is me though... some people might like poor quality panels that are height adjustable.
  4. The most important service of a monitor is good display quality. So chosen monitors should have very good display quality. Shortly some TIPS we included here to buy a good monitor- 1) You should checking the viewing angle 2) Should consider easy adjustments 3) You should Check for ample connections 4) Try to taking a shine, or not. Before buying try to View the screen in bright light. 5) Which monitor you buy should look for a long time warranty.

    Finding Value in Open Source Software

    Companies look for ways to save money around every corner. While there are some places that you SHOULDN’T cut corners with, using open source software (OSS) definitely is not one of them. With cloud computing set up to be the newest take over in technology, it’s hard to pass up the ability to employ OSS within your corporation. WebDev Studios says that one of the major benefits of open source software is public collaboration- “One of the major benefits of open source software is the public collaboration behind each project. Most open source projects are created by tens of thousands of programmers all collaborating to create, and improve upon, a flawless website framework.” I totally agree. When software is out there free and constantly being updated, you’re in a win-win situation. When working with commercial software within your company, you might find that some features are lacking and the whole system is lackluster. This is called the “everyone is going to use this no matter what, so why make it good” syndrome. The beauty of OSS is that developers look for specific feedback on their software and are constantly looking to improve its capabilities for the public that may be using it. It’s almost like getting the love from a small business rather than the cold corporate shoulder. So how has open source helped to save corporate companies in the long run? In an interview on Third Nature, states “The big thing, of course, is open source is viewed as a lower-cost model. Combine that with a period when everybody was slashing budgets but still had staff. They might have been putting projects on hold because they couldn’t spend $100,000 on some BI tool or another database license. But they could still do the project by going ahead with open source.” CRM (customer relationship management) is one area that has benefited enormously in the open source field. Splendid CRM, which is in the top 10 for open source CRM, is shifting and changing ridiculously fast and is highly customizable, with features such as an Outlook plug-in and integrated Paypal. If you’re considering using open source software and you’re weighing the options, think of it like this. Would you rather have software that is constantly growing and changing with the industry, or would you rather spend a ton of money on commercial software that may take months and multiple new releases for bugs to be fixed? That one necessary feature that you’ve been waiting for may require you to make a whole new purchase in proprietary software. If the cost of licensing fees and in-house developers has you worried, take a closer look. While having an in-house developer can have higher than average prices depending on their skill set, as well as licensing fees for the source code, if you look at the opportunity cost for what you may be losing in conversions and business due to the lag in the typical enterprise software, you may be surprised.
  6. We’ve seen a lot of posts discussing the top IT programs in America, sometimes referring to them as the top computer science programs, and sometimes switching back and forth between the two terms http://search.techrepublic.com.com/search/computer+science.html?t=4 When it comes to the best of the best, we thought we should break-out outstanding schools in three respective disciplines: • Information Technology (for training to become developers and programmers) * IT Business (for those who want to manage teams of developers or become network administrators) * and Computer Science (for gaining a foundation in theoretical computation and practical computer system techniques.) Information Technology ----------------------- Stanford University Ranked 3rd in Engineering and IT by QT World Universities 2009 survey, Stanford continues to be one of the world’s leading research institutions. http://www.topuniversities.com/university/576/stanford-university West Point The #1 school on Forbes 2009 list of America’s best colleges has a dress code, a curfew, and mandatory military service. It’s also free – if you get in – and has what is becoming one of the nation’s preeminent IT programs. http://www.eecs.usma.edu/it/ Indiana University A $10 million dollar IT and life sciences grant from the National Science Foundation will likely put the school at the forefront of parallel, grid, and cloud computing over the next few years. http://ovpit.iu.edu/ NOTE: Not included here are IT programs at community colleges and skills institutions. IT business ------------ Carnegie Melon This exhaustive program includes courses in marketing, web business engineering, IT strategy, economic networks, and artificial intelligence, which could be put to use on projects like the school’s Antarctic rover (above). http://www.tepper.cmu.edu/undergraduate-business/academics/business-tracks/computing-and-information-technology/index.aspx Massachusetts Institute of Technology Number one on the 2008 U.S. News & World Report list of best IT schools, MIT’s business IT courses are also listed in a James Madison University study of the top 10 U.S. college IT programs. http://web.mit.edu/ Virginia Tech An exciting emphasis on IT business management in this program sets students up for climbing the corporate ladder from day one, rather than just getting a foot in the door. http://www.bit.pamplin.vt.edu/ Brigham Young University America’s largest religion-based university boasts the advantage of being able to study in two worlds – business and IT – learning how to design, develop, implement, and manage information technology systems. http://marriottschool.byu.edu/bsisys/ Computer Science ----------------- Massachusetts Institute of Technology By the lists, there’s no contest: MIT ranks #1 among American computer science schools in the Forbes, U.S. News & World Report and CollegeCrunch.com lists, among others. MIT’s business IT courses are also listed in the James Madison University study of the top 10 U.S. college IT programs. http://www.csail.mit.edu/ University of California, Berkley Having produced such graduates as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and Google CEO Eric Schmidt, the legendary computing school has given birth to dozens of advancements in the digital world. http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/ Cornell University Cornell offers computer science majors and co-sponsors a major in Information Science, Systems, Technology in Engineering, and a major in Information Science in Arts & Sciences as well as in Agriculture & Life Sciences. http://www.cs.cornell.edu/ Princeton University Though one of America’s most prestigious schools has slipped a spot to #2 in the Forbes rankings, it continues to be a major contender for hosting America’s most promising minds in computer science. http://www.cs.princeton.edu/ California Institute of Technology Nestled near the Hollywood Hills, Caltech’s serene campus also hosts NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, where graduates or students could find themselves putting their skills to use on the next mission to Mars… http://www.cs.caltech.edu/ Harvard America’s oldest university sees the computer science program as a hub between physics, chemistry, biology, and electrical engineering departments, with students benefiting from contact with each. http://www.seas.harvard.edu/faculty-research/research-areas/computer-science/ More: Other IT business programs: http://www.jmu.edu/cob/cis/wm_library/ITUndergradReview-Final.pdf An interesting article “How West Point Beat The Ivy League. ” http://www.forbes.com/forbes/2009/0824/colleges-09-education-west-point-america-best-college.html
  7. Troubleshooting a motherboard problem is like trouble shooting your car when it won't start. Is the battery dead, is it out of gas, is the spark getting to the spark plugs. See where I am going with this. Your problem could be any where from the power cord plugged into the wall socket all the way to the keyboard. When you have a problem and have ruled out all the external devices [mouse, keyboard, commercial power, and monitor] then you start on the internal devices, hard drive, cd rom, floppy, video card, any installed auxiliary cards like the sound card, NIC, power supply, and so forth. One indication that your motherboard is experiencing problems is when you power it up and goes straight into the BIOS setup. Some times you will get an error message about why it went into the BIOS setup, some times nothing but the setup screen. Another indication is with the newer motherboard one of the embedded devices has failed, you can press on and install a card to replace that device or if under warranty send it back to the manufacture for repair or replacement. So what is your motherboard doing that is out of the ordinary? Not starting at all? Dumps to BIOS setup? Can't see the hard drive or cd rom? Mouse not working or intermittent? Keyboard not functioning? No sound from the embedded sound device? No network connectivity from the embedded NIC? Your USB will not connect on one or more ports? Well let's see if you can fix that problem. Before we run down the list did you get a POST error or beep code? If you did then go to the manufactures web site and look it up, this will be faster than trying to find the solution through this check list. Question: Have you changed anything in the bios? Added any new cards? Removed any cards? Added memory? Upgrades of any kind? If you have changed any thing from the bios to adding or removing cards then the problem is not your motherboard! If you have not changed any thing then we know that the problem has something to do with hardware, let's assume that the power supply, mouse, keyboard, and video is good. First go into BIOS, check the time and date [yup this is an indicator] if it has reverted to the default time [any time other than the current date and time will be the default] then your internal battery has died and needs to be replaced. You can set the time and date and reset all the BIOS settings but when you power the system down you will lose those settings and have to do it again when you power it back up. [This is assuming you have your computer connected to a power strip with surge protections and power everything down while not in use!] If the BIOS settings are correct then we need to look at your problem. Normal trouble shooting is to reseat all cable connections including power connectors, memory, cards, and the processor [use care while removing and reseating the processor!]. Problem still persisting? If reseating everything did not cure your problem next disconnect all cables from your mother board, remove any cards with the exception of the video card, leave the power to the motherboard, the memory, and the processor. Did the problem go away? Let's assume that your problems is not an embedded device [sound, nic, video, or usb] and it persists once you have the board stripped down to minimum support devices [mouse, keyboard, video card, and memory]. You are down to four possibilities: * The processor is failing [over heated and intermittent]. * A memory module has failed. * Something on the motherboard has burnt and is shorting out. * A auxiliary wire [power led, hard drive activity led, reset button, or soft power button] has shorted out. After checking the memory [if you have two or more memory modules try removing one if that doesn't swap them out] and the aux wires and the problem persists you will need a magnifying glass to look at all the ic's and wire traces on the motherboard looking for burnt areas or ic's.

    network hardware.....will it work on new OS???

    I think network hardware work on new OS.
  11. Technology often marches asymmetrically. CPUs, graphics cards, and chipsets follow different development and shipping schedules. One example of this is Socket 939 Athlon 64 CPUs. When those shipped last year, many were installed into AGP motherboards using either VIA K8T800 or Nvidia Nforce3 chipsets. That meant users were limited to AGP graphics and Serial ATA 150-only
