When The Game Does Not Run Smoothly

Have you ever had a problem with your computer in which the game you play does not run smoothly? This problem usually happens when the hardware in your computer does not support. For example, you are going to play a 3-D game and you come across this kind of problem. The problem can be caused by several factors: first, the processor in your computer is not fast enough. This problem can be solved by upgrading your processor with the new one having faster and better performance. Second, the memory, or usually called RAM (Random Access Memory), of your computer is not adequate. Try to increase the capacity of your RAM. If your computer currently uses 256 Mega Bytes or 512 Mega Bytes of RAM, try to upgrade it with 1024 MB of RAM. Third, the VGA card can also become the cause of the problem. VGA card functions to display output on the screen of the monitor. The 3-D games usually require a good and fast VGA card. So, you can upgrade your VGA card to get a better performance.

When Your Computer Is Not Stable

Sometimes the computer that we use restarts or turns off by itself. If this problem happens to your computer, there are some possibilities: first, your computer is too hot. To overcome this problem, install an additional fan inside the case of the CPU. This fan can function to make the CPU cooler. Second, the quality of the power supply in your computer is not good. Try to use a power supply with the output power of at least 350 Watts. The higher the power is, the better it will be. Third, the system files of your computer are corrupt. Try to reinstall your operating system to make your computer fresh again. Fourth, the problem can also be caused by a virus. Try to update your antivirus and scan your computer regularly. But remember! Installing an antivirus program does not always guarantee that your computer is free from viruses. Some viruses cannot be detected.

Power Supply Unit

A quality power supply is essential to a PC, especially for those who overclock or have numerous components and multiple hard drives installed. A power supply is the small, metal box usually located at the back of the PC that converts the AC current from your home to the DC current needed by the PC. The power supply is plugged into an eletrical outlet and then steps down the 110 volts (or 220) into the appropriate voltage and supplies it to the components in a PC. ATX-based power supplies are the standard now used in the PC industry.

Potential differences in an electrical charge creates a force called voltage. Voltage is measured in units called volts.

An ATX power supply provides five voltages:

* +12v
* -12v
* +5v
* -5v
* +3.3v

The total amount of power needed to operate a component is wattage. Wattage is measured in watts with the formula Wattage = Volts * Amps. For example, 110 volts multiplied by 10 amps is 1,100 watts. Most new video cards and PC components recommend a power supply rated 350 watts and above.

The amount of electricity flowing through an electrical system is called current. Electrical current is measured in amperes or amps. An ammeter is used to measure electrical currents in amps.

Electrical resistance is measures in Ohms. Resistance is a property that opposes the flow of electricity. The flow of electrons decreases as resistance increases and vice versa. Resistors are used to resist the flow of electricity.

Computer Virus

Computer technology has developed rapidly. New hardware and software have competed with one another. The vendors try hard to please the users and to fulfill their needs. Meanwhile, new viruses also emerge. They are ready to attack computers.

What are viruses? According to Microsoft (, computer viruses are small software programs that are designed to spread from one computer to another and to interfere with computer operation. A virus might corrupt or delete data on your computer, use your e-mail program to spread itself to other computers, or even erase everything on your hard disk.

Viruses are most easily spread by attachments in e-mail messages or instant messaging messages. That is why it is essential that you never open e-mail attachments unless you know who it's from and you are expecting it. Viruses can be disguised as attachments of funny images, greeting cards, or audio and video files. Viruses also spread through downloads on the Internet. They can be hidden in illicit software or other files or programs you might download.

Considering the bad effects caused by a virus, we must always be careful and always take a preventive action. Install an antivirus program in your computer and update it regularly.But you must also keep in your mind that installing an antivirus program does not guarantee 100% that your computer is free from viruses.

Cellular Phone Choices

Determining what kind of phone service you want is not so easy anymore. There are lots of choices to make: local phone service, long distance phone service, cellular phone service, calling cards, and voice over IP (VoIP) are just some of the choices we have to make.

Does it make more sense to just have a cellular phone, or is VoIP best for you? Or, should you stick with the traditional land line phone service? Well, the answer depends.

Here are some interesting facts about cellular phone service. Did you know that a cellular phone is basically a radio? To be precise, it is actually a radio transmitter and receiver. A cellular phone is essentially a two-way radio transceiver that patches into the telephone system via a cellular network of base stations. The antenna of a cellular phone is the phone's primary source of radio frequency, and the quality of the signal depends on your phone, the distance to the source (usually a tower), and other factors which may affect radio transmissions.

What kind of service is best for you? First, understand that, for the most part, you will need to enter into a contract with the service provider. In other words, a cellular phone is typically provided with a service contract so caution is advised that you think about what kind of use your cell phone will get and to sign up for the appropriate service plan. Trying to decide which mobile phone service is right for you can be very difficult. But there is another option: if you do not want a lengthy agreement, opt for prepaid mobile phone program. The prepaid cellular phone is an alternative to a monthly cellular phone plan. Basically, you pre-pay for your service (like a calling card). When you near the end of the amount of minutes you've paid for, you either just discontinue using it or buy more time (minutes). While the cellular phone is mostly made up of plastics, it is run by several powerful computer chips. Each cellular phone is assigned a unique ESN, which is automatically transmitted to the cellular tower station every time a cellular call is placed. All that means is that the cellular phone is even unleashing us from telephone wires. This is hi-tech in motion.
