Computer Hardware Chart

I recently came across a really useful Computer Hardware Chart made by a member on Deviantart that helps you visually identify various types of plugs, ports, sockets and RAM. Most technicians should already know how to identify many of these, but there a quite a lot of lesser known plugs and ports that I either haven’t seen before or have seen, but didn’t know what it was called. I have provided a link to a shrunken down version for easy web viewing that is only 2mb in size and an extremely high resolution version that weighs in at 24mb. Chart 1 Chart 2

INSOMNIA- Tools Of the Week

The default power settings for Windows is to have the computer go to sleep after about 15-30 minutes of inactivity (such as no keyboard input or mouse movement). This is great for the client because it saves power but not so great for a technician who is working on the computer. Insomnia is a small, freeware and portable application designed to prevent the computer from going to sleep. As long as the Insomnia window is open, the computer wont go to sleep. This is great for a technician who is running malware or diagnosis scans on a computer which can potentially take hours. If you are a technician who makes use of .BAT file or AutoIT scripting, this would be a nice addition to your script to keep the computers awake while your script does its task. http://cesso.org/Samples/Insomnia/Insomnia.zip

Kill All Running Apps – Repair Tool of the Week

The title pretty much says it all. This .BAT file will kill all currently running apps on a system that the user started with the exception of a few locked Windows processes and some antivirus products. This comes in handy when you are working on a system that has too many processes running and thus slowing it down; often to the point where its difficult to do any work on it. Being a BAT file, this script is obviously highly customizable. It works on a “if the process is not in this list, then kill it” system; so you can add processes to the list that you do not to be killed such as the menu for your USB drive applications or Firefox. This works on XP and Vista. For information on how to add processes to it, check out the. http://bharatbalegere.googlepages.com/kill.bat

Z- Corn Repair tools of the week

Z-Cron is a freeware (for personal use) and powerful task scheduler. Although Windows does come with a task scheduler but you would hardly call it user friendly and it isn’t nearly as powerful as Z-Cron. Z-Cron has a large list of tasks that you can schedule, but here are some of the highlights: * Copy, Move & Delete Files – Useful for backup devices * Kill – Closes a file * Download – Downloads a file via HTTP * Mail – Send an email with SMTP * Ping – Pings an IP address to test for connectivity * Reboot – Reboots the computer * Remote Shutdown – Remotely shut down a computer * Wake on LAN – Remotely power up a computer * Connect/Disconnect – Connects or disconnects a dialup connection * Watch – Monitors a program. If the program “dies”, it will be restarted * And more, here is the complete list An example of what you could do with Z-Cron is to get it to start a backup on a remote computer and have it email you when it finishes; or, if you were in a job that managed many computers on a network, you could set a master computer to turn on all the computers in the building in the morning and shut them down at night. There are many possibilities.
