     Transfer files between PC and Android: Wi-Fi network

    The best way to transfer files between your PC and Android is to send them over a shared wireless network. There are many apps you can use for this, but our favourite is Filedrop(http://www.filedropme.com/). Here’s our no-fuss guide to getting it set up.

     

    Step one: First, you’ll need to install the app on your mobile device, and download the companion software for your computer. After a brief install, fire up the program on both devices, and click the scan buttons.

     

    Step two: The PC program will ask you which kind of device you’re trying to connect. Select the type of device, and it will prompt you to input the device code. 

     

    Step three: This code can be found by tapping the options icon in the device app. Enter the code, and the computer will be paired with your mobile or tablet.

     

    Step four: Dropping files between the two is simple – just drag and drop files into the program window on your PC.

     

    Step five: If you’re transferring from Android to Windows, tap the icon for your PC in the app, then select either the file browser option to navigate to your chosen documents, or the gallery option to quickly select multiple photos.

    Step six: Accept the transfer on the destination device, and the task will begin immediately. A notification will appear in the in-tray section at the bottom, where you can quickly select and open your files.

  • Reset or Remove BIOS Password For Acer, Dell, HP, Toshiba, Asus and Apple Laptop

    Method 1 – Remove Battery

    For desktop user, open up your computer casing and look for the battery. Remove the battery for approximately 5 minutes (maybe longer, depending on the motherboard) and slot it back. By removing the battery and deprive the motherboard’s flash memory of power supply, you are essentially resetting the settings back to default when the existing data in BIOS are cleared.

  • Computer POST and beep codes

     

    The computer POST (power-on self-test) checks a computer's internal hardware for compatibility and connection before starting the remainder of the boot process. If the computer passes the POST, the computer may give a single beep (some computers may beep twice) as it starts and continue to boot. However, if the computer fails the POST, the computer will either not beep or generate a beep code that tells the user the source of the problem.

    Dell beep codesBeep Code         Description

    1 beep  ----BIOS ROM corruption or failure

    2 beeps     ----           Memory (RAM) not detected

    3 beeps     ---           Motherboard failure

  • How to fix a computer that won’t boot

    Here are some common errors in Windows

    • no bootable device – insert boot disk and press any key
    • NTLDR is missing or corrupted
    • Ntoskrnl.exe is missing
    • Ntdetect.com is missing
    • BOOTMGR is missing or corrupted
    • NTFS.SYS is missing
    • Hal.dll is missing

    How to fix a computer that won’t boot – Instructions


    STEP 1 : Turn your computer on, booting from either your Windows 7 Installation DVD or Windows 7 System Recovery Disc. Remember, you may need to change the boot order inside your BIOS to have the your DVD drive boot first.

    STEP 2: After the installation or recovery disc loads, if prompted, select your language settings and then continue. If you are using the installation DVD, when prompted by the following screen select Repair your computer.


    STEP 3: The computer will take a moment now to scan itself for any Windows installations, after which you will likely be given a choice to select which installation you wish to repair. Select the appropriate Windows installation from the list and then continue. If by chance a problem is detected in one of your Windows installations at this initial stage, the system may also ask you if it can try to repair the problem automatically. It is up to you if you wish to let the system try to repair itself, but otherwise just select No.

    STEP 4: Once you have reached the System Recovery Options screen, as shown below, you will be faced with a list of choices that can aid you in repairing a damaged Windows 7 operating system. If you wish to try the Startup Repair option first, it is often successful in automatically fixing many different start up issues, but in this article we will be using the Command Prompt option to resolve our problems manually. So, click Command Prompt to continue.


    STEP5: Now sitting at the command prompt, enter the following command and then press enter:bootrec.exe /FixMbr
    If successful, you should be greeted with the message The operation completed successfully. That’s it! Your Master Boot Record has been repaired.

    While the above command does fix the MBR, and sometimes that is enough, there still might be an error with the system partition’s boot sector and Boot Configuration Data (BCD). This might occur if you have tried to install another operating system alongside Windows 7, such as Windows XP. To write a new boot sector, try the following command:
    bootrec.exe /FixBoot

    If you are still faced with your Windows 7 installation not being detected during start up, or if you wish to include more than one operating system choice to your system’s boot list, you can try the following command to rebuild your BCD:
    bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

    If things are okay after trying all the above steps, you better install  the operating system again!
