Parts of a Laptop: Batteries, Screen and CPUWritten by Melissa Knab
Electronics and computers are very popular today so it is no surprise that more and more people are getting them. And as technology advances, electronics are becoming smaller and smaller and also portable. This is where we get laptops, or notebook computers. Laptops use batteries to run computer so you can make it mobile. You can take it anywhere you go. But there are other components aside from just batteries that are needed to make laptop work. In case you donít already know, we are going to go over parts of a laptop and what makes it work.
It seems obvious but your laptop is also going to need a screen. The screen is display that will show what you are doing on computer while you are surfing Net, using word processing or more. In early days of laptops, they had very dim and hard to read screens but now they are bright and even come in wide screen and more. There are different options when it comes to your displays. You can go with dual-scan or active matrix.
But you already know there is more to laptop than display. The way computer actually runs is going to be very important to your usage. You need a mobile CPU to make computer actually run. Mobile CPUs use less power and they keep machine fro overheating which is very important with laptops.
Your Hard Drive is Going to Explode Ė Why a UPS is EssentialWritten by Kevin Souter
Itís most peoples worst computing nightmare. You wake up in morning, flip on computer, and it doesnít boot. Sometimes problem rears its ugly head as a horrific clacking noise. Other times it simply gives a read error.
At this point, most people panic. The first thing you wonder is whether or not data is recoverable. There is no universal answer to this. In some cases, a simple scan with some data recovery software is all that it takes to retrieve contents of drive. In other cases, if you want it badly enough, it will take thousands of dollars and a shipment of drive to a clean lab where they will pull platters inside of drive and access them that way.
Now youíre probably wondering if thereís a way to prevent this from happening. Well, youíre in luck. Getting a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) is very best and most effective way to prevent your data from pulling a disappearing act.
While it is not fool-proof, having something that regulates electricity flowing into your computer can reduce risk of a drive failure by up to 70%. This figure goes up to around 90% if computer is being used while in an electrical storm.
