Drivers & Firmware

Very often I come across a situation where I need to find and download drivers for various devices. Especially often this has to be done when repairing computers (reinstalling the system, for example). Sometimes they bring PCs for repair that were bought 3-5 years ago and have never been opened since the time of purchase. In this case, the drivers that come with the PC are often out of date or not at all suitable, because at the time of purchase contained errors or did not work correctly.

And also with a high degree of probability they will demand to buy themselves before they show you the treasured list of drivers with download links. Continue reading

I believe that the ability to provide ventilation inside the system unit is much more important than its appearance, since this factor is fundamental in the issue of the durability of the entire system and its fault tolerance.

Child lock

I think many visitors to the site have children. Everyone certainly has a computer. And now you just have to turn away, as the child begins to play on the computer keyboard, like on a piano. As a result, anything can happen. Therefore, I am often asked questions about how to block a computer from small children.

Also, a lock is needed from time to time, when suddenly you suddenly realize that the keyboard needs to be cleaned, moreover, without delay. Locking the computer in this case is also a more convenient, practical and quick solution than turning off the PC during cleaning. Continue reading
