Tips Merawat Printer Supaya Lebih Awet

Jika tak dirawat, printer bisa saja ‘ngambek’ dan kinerjanya menjadi tidak optimal. Untuk itulah, printer juga perlu dirawat layaknya perangkat elektronik lainnya agar tetap dalam kondisi baik.

Berikut beberapa tips mengenai cara merawat printer secara mudah dan murah, dan ditanggung, printer Anda sehat dan bisa bekerja lebih maksimal.

Gunakan Printer secara Periodik
Untuk mencegah kualitas cetakan yang buruk, gunakan printer Anda secara periodik sedikitnya 2-3 kali seminggu. Hal ini akan membuat aliran tinta dari lubang tetap lancar. Jika Anda termasuk jarang menggunakan printer, barangkali Anda perlu secarik kertas untuk mengingatkan Anda mencetak dengan tinta warna atau hitam putih sedikitnya 2 kali seminggu untuk menjaga kelancaran aliran tinta.

Matikan Printer Jika Tidak Digunakan
Jangan lupa untuk selalu mematikan printer jika tidak digunakan. Hal ini akan mencegah menutupnya lubang-lubang aliran tinta dalam kepala printer.

Bersihkan Kotoran dalam Printer
Bersihkan bagian dalam printer setiap satu atau dua minggu, tergantung seberapa sering dan seberapa banyak Anda menggunakan printer. Hal ini akan menjaga kemampuan printer Anda dalam mencetak. Jangan lupa mengamati apakah ada benda-benda yang tertinggal di dalam printer seperti penjepit kertas dan sebagainya. Jangan simpan printer di tempat berdebu atau penuh serangga. Jika memang tempatnya berdebu, ada baiknya bungkus printer dengan plastik untuk melindunginya dari kotoran.

Jagalah Cartridge dengan Baik Ketika Mengganti Tinta
Cartridge printer dipenuhi penghubung listrik yang halus. Benda ini mungkin rusak jika diperlakukan sembarangan. Bisa jadi sinyalnya dengan komputer menjadi putus atau hasil cetakannya buruk. Karena itu, perlakukan cartridge dengan hati-hati.

Gunakan Diagnostic Tools
Seluruh printer mempunyai software pertolongan tentang bagaimana merawat atau mengatasi permasalahan mengenai printer tersebut. Sediakan waktu mempelajarinya. Mungkin saja informasi yang disediakan bisa menolong Anda mengatasi permasalahan dalam printer Anda.

Matikan Printer Jika Gagal Mencetak
Kegagalan dalam mencetak atau error message yang kadang muncul, terkadang bisa diatasi dengan mematikan tombol printer, kemudian mencabut kabel daya sedikitnya selama sepuluh menit. Setelah itu, masukkan lagi kabel daya tersebut pada colokannya, nyalakan printer dan cobalah mencetak kembali. Cara seperti ini seringkali mampu mengatasi kegagalan mencetak dengan baik.

Tips Bekerja Sehat Dengan Komputer

Bila kita tanya, apa saja hal yang menarik bagi para penggandrung komputer? Pasti mereka akan menjawab: kecepatan, keamanan, dan reliabilitas. Sayangnya, kebanyakan dari computer geeks kurang terlalu memperhatikan bagaimana posisi terbaik saat mereka sedang bekerja di muka komputer.

Padahal secepat atau seaman apapun komputer mereka, akan menjadi kontraproduktif bila posisi tubuh mereka salah, saat bekerja di depan komputer.

Berikut ini hal-hal penting yang harus diperhatikan:

Posisi duduk
- Posisi paha horizontal, sejajar dengan lantai
- Posisi telapak kaki menapak ke tanah. Bila tidak, berarti posisi duduk Anda terlalu tinggi
- Bantalan kursi menopang punggung bagian bawah, sehingga punggung tetap tegak
- Rubah posisi duduk Anda secara berkala selama bekerja, karena duduk dalam posisi yang tetap dalam jangka waktu lama bisa menyebabkan ketidaknyamanan
- Punggung santai tapi tidak membungkuk
- kepala tak membungkuk atau terlalu condong ke depan

Monitor
-Pastikan layar monitor dalam kondisi bersih, sehingga tak ada noda yang menghalangi pandangan mata
-Atur setelan brighthness dan kontras layar secukupnya sehingga nyaman bagi mat
-Atur posisi tak layar monitor agar tak memantulkan cahaya yang menyilaukan mata
-Atur posisi bagian atas layar sejajar atau sedikit di bawah pandangan mata
-Jarak antara mata ke layar antara 50-60 cm

Posisi Meja
- Letakkan keyboard pada posisi yang membuat lengan terasa rileks
- Posisi siku dengan meja membentuk sudut 90 derajat
- Pergelangan tangan pada posisi netral, lurus dan nyaman
- Saat mengetik, pergelangan tangan berada pada posisi yang tetap, namun bisa menjangkau tombol keyboard dengan jari
- Tempatkan tetikus/ mouse dekat dengan keyboard, sehingga tak perlu menggerakan tangan terlalu jauh untuk meraihnya

INTEL CORE i7 : PROCESSOR INTEL TERBARU

Intel telah mengeluarkan processor terbarunya pada awal november 2008 kemarin.Processor dengan codename Bloomfield ini merupakan generasi penerus dari generasi sebelumnya ,walaupun secara mikroarsitektur berbeda dengan intel core 2. Processor yang masih keluarga dari tiga buah Processor Desktop Intel untuk x86-64 ini,merupakan processor pertama yang dirilis intel dengan menggunakan arsitektur intel nehalem. Nehalem adalah keluarga mikroarsitektur processor Intel generasi terbaru dan revolusioner yang dibuat dengan menggunakan proses transistor 45nm dan HI-K metal gate. Nehalem memiliki fitur yang baru dan berbeda jika dibandingkan dengan keluarga processor berbasis Core micro-architecture (Core2Duo,Core2Quad).

Features:
Nehalem mikroarsitektur memiliki banyak fitur baru yang ditanamkan kedalam Core i7:
  • The new LGA 1366 socket is incompatible with earlier processors.
  • On-die memory controller: the memory is directly connected to the processor. It is called the uncore part and runs at a different clock (uncore clock) of execution cores.
    • Three channel memory: each channel can support one or two DDR3 DIMMs. Motherboards for Core i7 generally have three, four (3+1) or six DIMM slots.
    • Support for DDR3 only.
    • No ECC support.
  • The front side bus has been replaced by the Intel QuickPath Interconnect interface. Motherboards must use a chipset that supports QuickPath.
  • The following caches:
    • 32 KB L1 instruction and 32 KB L1 data cache per core
    • 256 KB L2 cache (combined instruction and data) per core
    • 8 MB L3 (combined instruction and data) "inclusive", shared by all cores
  • Single-die device: all four cores, the memory controller, and all cache are on a single die.
  • "Turbo Boost" technology allows all active cores to intelligently clock themselves up in steps of 133 MHz over the design clock rate as long as the CPU's predetermined thermal and electrical requirements are still met.
  • Re-implemented Hyper-threading. Each of the four cores can process up to two threads simultaneously, so the processor appears to the OS as eight CPUs. This feature was present in the older NetBurst microarchitecture but was dropped in Core.
  • Only one QuickPath interface: not intended for multi-processor motherboards.
  • 45nm process technology.
  • 731M transistors.
  • 263 mm2 Die size.
  • Sophisticated power management can place an unused core in a zero-power mode.
  • Support for SSE4.2 & SSE4.1 instruction sets.
Simultaneos Multi Threading atau Hyper-threading adalah teknologi yang memungkinkan setiap core pada prosesor berbasis Nehalem ini untuk dapat memproses 2-thread instruction sekaligus secara simultan. Jadi dapat meningkatkan kinerja aplikasi dan multi-tasking.

Intel Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) merupakan teknologi interkoneksi antara prosesor dengan chipset yang menggantikan teknologi Front Side Bus (FSB) yang digunakan pada generasi prosesor Intel sebelumnya. Teknologi QPI ini memberikan kecepatan dan bandwidth koneksi yang jauh lebih besar daripada teknologi FSB.

Intel Turbo Boost Technology adalah teknologi yang secara otomatis memungkinkan setiap core pada prosesor berbasis Nehalem untuk berjalan pada clock yang lebih tinggi dari spesifikasi apabila kita menjalankan program aplikasi single-threading sehingga kinerja yang dicapai sama baiknya dengan aplikasi yang telah multithreading.

Jenis-jenis processor intel i7 yang telah dirilis dan yang akan dirilis,diantaranya adalah :

Mengenal Monitor LCD

Perkembangan teknologi mulai menggeser keberadaan monitor CRT atau monitor sistem tabung dan sekarang mulai beralih ke monitor LCD.

LCD atau Liquid Crystal Display bekerja dengan prinsip yang sama sekali berbeda dengan monitor CRT. Perbedaannya terletak pada cara cahaya pada layar dihasilkan. Bila monitor CRT menggunakan fosfor yang berpendar, teknologi LCD menggunakan kristal cair untuk menjebak cahaya yang masuk di dalamnya sehingga tetap menyala.
Secara sederhana, kristal cair diletakkan sedemikian rupa sehingga hanya cahaya tertentu yang mampu melewatinya. Arus listrik yang dilewatkan pada kristal tersebut akan membuat cahaya terjebak di antara kristal dan menghasilkan gambar yang bisa dilihat dengan mata manusia. Oleh karenanya, monitor LCD tidak mengenal refresh rate sebagaimana layar CRT, tetapi ada istilah response time, yakni waktu yang diperlukan oleh kristal untuk berada pada keadaan on atau off. Biasanya diukur dalam satuan milidetik.




Kelebihan Monitor LCD
  1. Konsumsi listrik rendah/hemat energi sekitar 35-60 watt.

  2. Tidak menghasilkan radiasi elektromagnet yang menggangu kesehatan.
    Seperti diketahui bahwa monitor-monitor terdahulu memancarkan radiasi yang sangat kuat dan jika dalam jangka waktu yang lama dapat menyebabkan gangguan pada mata seperti mata lelah,mata merah dan bisa membuat orang yang sebelumnya tidak berkacamata menjadi berkacamata (seperti saya sendiri). Dengan adanya inovasi pada teknologi monitor LCD, pancaran radiasi dapat direduksi secara maksimal sehingga mata tidak lagi panas saat bekerja dengan monitor LCD meski dengan pengaturan brightness/contrast yang tinggi.

  3. Tidak menimbulkan efek kedipan (flicker free)

  4. Area layarnya optimum karena tidak termakan untuk bezel/frame.

  5. Tidak memakan banyak tempat.
    Space atau ruang penataan monitor di meja yang jauh lebih leluasa jika menggunakan monitor LCD. Kita tidak lagi dibingungkan saat kita harus meletakkan bahan kerja di meja komputer ,karena bentuknya yang ramping,dan mudah dibawa kemanapun.

  6. Bentuknya stylish , berkesan modern dan enak dilihat

  7. Sinyal gambar digital 
Dari kelebihan-kelebihan diatas monitor LCD juga memiliki kekurangan/kelemahan diantaranya :
  1. Harganya lebih mahal dibandingkan dengan monitor CRT
  2. Kualitas gambar yang dihasilkan belum sebaik monitor CRT
  3. Resolusi gambar yang dihasilkan lebih rendah dibandingkan monitor CRT
  4. Sudut viewable-nya terbatas. Begitu kita mengeset sudut pandang, gambar terlihat akan berubah di mata kita.   
Tapi untuk penghematan jangka panjang dan kenyamanan kita sendiri /mengikuti perkembangan zaman, patutlah kiranya jika kita berkorban beberapa ratus dolar untuk membeli monitor LCD dibandingkan dengan monitor CRT.

Meningkatkan Pagerank:

Pagerank adalah representasi pentingnya sebuah website oleh google. Anda dapat mengetahui peringkat website anda dengan mendownload google toolbar (lakukan search “google toolbar” pada google.com).

Beberapa cara untuk meningkatkan pagerank:
  1. Seperti yang kita ketahui bahwa PR adalah popularitas link blog kita, jadi untuk mendapatkannya kita   mencoba membangun sebuah projek backlink (Tukeran link).Sebuah situs dengan pagerank yang tinggi biasanya memiliki banyak situs yang menuju kepada situs tersebut. Jadi sebuah situs yang bagus, misalnya detik.com, tentu banyak situs lain yang memiliki link kepada detik.com. Hal tersebut akan menaikkan pagerank dari detik.com. Semakin banyak link dari situs lain, google akan mengganggap situs anda semakin penting. Banyak pihak yang mencoba melakukan trik-trik ilegal dengan membuat banyak link-link ke website anda. Jangan lakukan itu, karena google akan mengetahuinya cepat atau lambat.

  2. Buatlah artikel atau bisnis yang baik. Ketika artikel atau bisnis anda baik, akan banyak orang yang akan menaruh link website anda dihalamannya dengan sukarela. Misalnya jika di website anda ada berita perselingkuhan suatu artis, maka website lain mungkin akan menaruh link website anda pada halamannya memberitahu bahwa berita perselingkuhan tersebut dapat dibaca pada situs anda.

  3. Submit halaman anda pada search engine directories. Search engine directories adalah cara yang bagus untuk mendapatkan link yang menuju halaman anda. Contoh Search engine directories adalah Dmoz.org.

  4. Yang terpenting adalah suatu Update Content atau isi berita. Jika kita sering mengupdate maka kita akan mendapatkan PR dari google. Sebuah Mitos atau kenyataan ada yang mengatakan sebuah blog menggunakan blogger yang sering diupdate akan mendapatkan PR dari google.

    Increase your PageRank

Cara Mendapatkan Backlink Gratis

SEO (Search Engine Optimization), karena backlink berkualitaslah yang diyakini bisa menentukan rangking dari suatu situs pada SERP (Search Engine Result Page). Tetapi, anda juga perlu ingat bahwa tidak semua backlink berguna bagi situs anda, ada juga backlink yang bisa “menyakiti” situs anda. Backlink yang jelek biasanya berasal dari situs spam, situs search spam dan situs-situs otomatis lainnya. Anda bisa mengatur strategi untuk linkbait (memancing untuk mendapatkan link).

Bertukar Link

Cara Otomatis
Ada beberapa situs yang menawarkan servis saling bertukar backlink secara otomatis antar anggotanya. Salah satu syarat mutlak untuk bisa menggunakan fasilitas ini adalah situs anda harus berbasis PHP atau ASP. Situs yang menawarkan fasilitas ini diantaranya Digitalpoint Co-Op dan RecieveLinks. Anda akan diberikan beberapa baris skrip PHP/ASP yang akan menampilkan link dari partner anda. Anda akan diberikan point setiap kali ada user yang menampilkan link partner anda. Semakin banyak poin yang anda dapatkan, maka akan semakin banyak pula backlink yang akan anda dapatkan.

Cara Manual
Cara ini mungkin sedikit lebih repot dibandingkan cara otomatis. Cara ini biasanya digunakan untuk situs yang berbasis HTML. Tetapi kelebihan dari cara ini adalah kita bisa menyeleksi dan menentukan sendiri situs mana saja yang bisa bertukar link dengan situs kita, sehingga hanya situs yang memiliki topik yang sama dan berkualitas saja yang bertaut ke situs kita. Caranya dengan menghubungi pemilik situs yang kita targetkan. Anda bisa mencari situs target dengan googling atau lewat forum-forum komunitas seperti DigitalPoint, Adsense-ID, resep.web.id, dll.

Membuat Situs Dummy
Situs satu halaman (One Page Site)
Cara ini mungkin cara termudah dalam membuat situs dummy yang dipergunakan untuk mendapatkan backlink. Kita hanya membuat satu artikel saja, tetapi artikel kita harus benar-benar berkualitas agar menciptakan sebuah backlink yang berkualitas pula. Anda bisa membuat situs dummy seperti di Google Pages, Squidoo ataupun Geocities. Bisa juga anda membuat sebuah artikel di Indobloggers yang didalamnya anda sisipkan link dari situs-situs anda.

Situs Kecil (Small Site)
Biasanya dipergunakan sebagai small site adalah hosting gratisan atau blog network gratis seperti Blogger, Wordpress, blog dari Friendster atau Myspace, blogher atau layanan blog gratis lainnya. Small site tidak menuntut update situs terlalu sering asalkan topik yang kita buat masih berhubungan dengan situs utama kita.

Lain-lain (Other Way)
Halaman Profil
Anda bisa menyisipkan backlink pada halaman profil anda. Biasanya jika kita mendaftar pada suatu forum komunitas atau servis bersama, anda akan diberikan halaman profil yang bisa menyimpan link situs anda. Contoh: Mybloglog, Forum Digitalpoint, Kaskus Forum, Forum Indonesia, dll.

Signature
Signature adalah beberapa baris kalimat yang diberikan oleh forum atau email yang berguna untuk mencerminkan siapa anda secara singkat. Anda bisa menggunakan fasilitas ini untuk menyisipkan link situs anda. Berilah kalimat yang menarik pada link signature anda, sehingga dapat menarik orang untuk meng-klik link tersebut.

Social Bookmarking
Walaupun hasilnya tidak terlalu terlihat, tetapi cara ini masih diyakini dapat menghasilkan trafik dan tentu saja backlink. Anda bisa mempertimbangkan berbagai macam social bookmarking yang menurut anda cocok untuk situs anda. Social Bookmarking yang bagis diantaranya Digg, Del.icio.us, Stumbleupon, Apply, Lintas Berita, dll.

Komentar
Beberapa blog (terutama blog berbasis wordpress) sengaja memberikan penghargaan khusus terhadap para komentatornya, dengan cara menghilangkan atribut nofollow (yang merupakan bawaan wordpress) pada sistem komentar blognya. Dengan demikian blog-blog ini dapat dimanfaatkan sebagai sumber backlink gratis dengan hanya memberikan komentar kedalam blog tersebut (jangan spam tentunya). Indobloggers sendiri mempergunakan sistem makilah daku kau ku kejar.

Memang banyak cara-cara untu mendapatkan backlink, untuk Yahoo! dan MSN, reputasi link mungkin tidak terlalu berpengaruh (belum), tetapi bagi Google, reputasi link sangatlah berpengaruh. Jadi jika anda ingin memiliki link untuk jangka panjang dan mempunyai pengaruh yang besar, ada baiknya anda memperhatikan faktor-faktor yang mempengaruhi reputasi dari sebuah link.

Social Networking VS Search Engine Optimization

Ask yourself these questions - Why would I want more website traffic via networking sites, aren’t Search Engines enough? How can social networking websites help to increase the number of hits to my website more than Search Engine Optimisation, (SEO)?
Social Networking is a great way for new or existing companies to gain an online presence, with a minimal outlay of revenue and, in some cases, even overnight success!
Social Networking sites can bring many visitors and potential clients to your site in a short space of time, helping you expand your client base and potentially increasing sales of your products and services at little or no extra cost to you.


Your website should have unique and informative content, keeping the user interested in your services or products. This can include giving helpful free advice, facts, using blogs, forums and links to other useful websites that your visitors will enjoy. Add signature links to forums and links to your website on your social networking profile.
Establish yourself as an online ‘ Expert’ in your particular field by answering peoples questions, giving good, sound, advice, and recommending products and services, not only just your own. This will take a little time but, once you have built a good, reliable, reputation, people will come directly to you for advice and to use your services. You are established as an ‘Expert’ in your field! – Thus increasing beneficial website traffic to your site.

Other benefits of Social Networking - Is it a place for business professionals too?
Social Networking isn’t just for ‘Business-to-Consumer’ but it’s also beneficial in building “Business-to-Business” relationships for business professionals too. Once you are established online, it’s easy to find companies and people with the similar interests and goals that will compliment your services. You can then share advice and leads, which will eventually increase your revenue and service portfolio.
Business Networking Benefits - The days of the traveling salesman are going, with most business in the 21st Century being conducted on line. When online you are able to judge a person’s level of knowledge, skills and helpfulness and you will be able to see the benefits this person can bring to your company and whether you can eventually work with them.


To summarise - Social networking in a business sense, is today’s way of attracting potential clients and interest to your site because of your specialised knowledge and skills. Combining this with SEO will develop a positive sense of helping people who appreciate your advice and will increase the number of meaningful hits to your website.

Practical Uses for GPS Technology

by: Jeremy Maddock
Since the US Department of Defense established the worldwide Global Positioning System (GPS) network, it has been put to a very wide variety of uses by governments, corporations, organizations, and individuals alike.
It has been put to good use for many years in its original, and most obvious, purpose of coordinating military operations. In fact, if it weren’t for GPS, many modern military operations and practices would simply not be possible. It is also frequently used in search-and-rescue missions as well as disaster relief efforts.
In addition to this, GPS technology has proven to be instrumental in numerous scientific research expeditions, especially in very remote regions such as mountain ranges and the north and south poles.
The other side of GPS functionality, which is sometimes forgotten, is the many uses it can be put to by individual consumers. Handheld GPS units ( http://www.gpsdevices.info/gps-handhelds.php ) and other GPS devices ( http://www.gpsdevices.info/ ) are available for sale through many ordinary retail channels, and can be very useful for a variety recreational purposes. For example, having a GPS device handy when camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, or boating can be an excellent way to ensure that you don’t get lost, even if you somehow manage to wander off course.
Another common consumer use of GPS technology is for safety security purposes. Using a GPS tracking system ( http://www.gpsdevices.info/gps-tracking-system.php ) can be an excellent way to combat crimes such as theft and kidnapping.

Tips For Branding Your Restaurant With LED Signs

Author: Jake Morgan

There is strong competition amongst restaurants to capture business from customers. Most people nowadays have very busy schedules. These two factors are important to consider when developing marketing strategies for your restaurant.

There has been an increase in household numbers in the US, yet the population has declined. What this means is there has been a dramatic escalation in single person and two person households. These households tend to prepare their own meals less and dine out more often. A recent research study found 32% of Americans dine out two days per week, while 61% eat at restaurants once a week. This translates into a large population segment seeking restaurants that appeal to their tastes and budgets.

Dual house incomes are predicted to continue to grow and, along with that growth, comes a rise in disposable income. Dual income households are likely to have less available time for regular meal preparation and more probable to view restaurants as a convenient and time-saving option. The increase in disposable incomes gives dual income households the ability to dine out more often and/or spend more of their income on restaurant meals.

With the stiff competition in the food service segment, restaurants need to find methods to attract customers. These time-pressed patrons are most likely to be attracted by advertising that tells them instantly what kind of cuisine the restaurant offers, hours of operation or special features about the restaurant's ambiance, such as whether the restaurant is family-oriented, sports-oriented or fast food, mid-scale or fine dining.

This advertising needs to be highly visible to catch the attention of prospective patrons who are driving or walking by the restaurant's location. Merely showcasing a menu often will not be sufficient as people may not have the desire to invest the time to read it.

A new and effective trend in advertising is a LED sign. LEDs were developed by a Russian scientist in the mid 1920's, but have only recently been recognized for their attributes in recent years.

LEDs are the brightest lighting available. They will not fade or flicker as they age. Less than one-half of the electricity is consumed by LEDs compared to neon and incandescent signs.

LEDs are constructed of solid plastic and are extremely durable, whereas neon and incandescent lights are made of thin walled glass and, therefore, quite fragile.

LEDs has a life expectancy of 100,000 hours. Neon and incandescent lights only have a life expectancy of 35,000 hours and 4,000 hours, respectively.

LED signs offer increased options for versatility and programmability than do other types of electronic advertising signage. LED signs can display single or multiple messages and are programmable for multi-message programs. Neon and incandescent signs do not have these options.

LED signs are safer to operate as they use low voltage circuitry and generate less heat than conventional incandescent and fluorescent lights. LED signs can be left on 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, without danger because of the low voltage requirement.

Scrolling LED messages combined with combined movement, light, graphics and text will capture a consumer's eye and curiosity, and restaurants who are innovative in their advertising have an advantage in attracting new patrons, or diners from competing restaurants, who may become repeat regulars.

Get an advantage on competing restaurants today by shopping for an affordable LED restaurant sign at a reputable online LED sign website like Bright LED Signs.com...

In addition the NiCad batteries wasn't eco-friendly and their dumping causes harm the surroundings also.

Laptop Computers - Upgrade Or Replace?

Author: Bruce Orr
Laptop computers are great. They offer convenience and flexibility to anyone who depends on a computer for their livelihood. They are also prone to annoying problems like the ones I've experienced lately. Here are just a few examples from the ongoing saga of my laptop:

• I had two instances of my Web browser open, along with a couple of other applications. As I ALT-Tabbed between apps, the ALT-Tab window - the one that displays all the open applications for you to move to - froze, front and center, on my screen. As I tried valiantly to work, the little window obstructed my view. When I happened to shut down one instance of my browser, the thing went away.

• I had one thin line on my monitor. It's like some pixels went missing or something. A few weeks later, another line appeared. If this keeps going, I imagine I'll lose a good portion of my screen by the end of the year.

• The battery conks out after less than 2 hours.

So, the question I'm left with is: should I upgrade my laptop or replace it?

Upgrading Laptop Computers - Pros and Potential Cons

The main benefit of upgrading is cost. Instead of paying for a brand new machine, I could just by a memory stick for a fraction of the price and hope that solves my problem. Memory is cheap. Refurbished memory is even cheaper. I know because my machine is ancient and, needing to look around for the right kind of memory, I checked a reseller.

For most people, memory upgrades are enough to boost performance, if performance is the real issue.

The potential con of an upgrade is that it may not fix the problem. So I could end up spending money on memory and lots of time trying to figure out how to install it, only to discover that my problem isn't fixed.

Buying a New Laptop - Pros and Potential Cons

Money is also the main concern with buying a new laptop, but in this case, money is a "con", not a "pro". The costs of replacing technology can be significant for any business, big or small. Yes, it would be nice to have a new computer, and one that could actually handle running more than one application at a time, but is it better to take my chances on a memory upgrade? Is a new laptop affordable?

If you are in a similar situation to mine and you want an answer to that last question, here's some advice. Look closely at your current and future needs. Make sure you consider a laptop that has room for expansion, in case you find yourself in this same situation a few years from now.

Laptop computers come in a wide range of sizes, from tiny netbooks to huge desktop replacements. Take a look at the price ranges for the specs you need. It can't hurt to take a peek at the secondary market too. Used and refurbished laptop computers work as well as new ones - albeit with fewer bells and whistles due to their age.

Like all technology, laptop computers are a blessing and a curse. They make life easier, but they also make it a lot more expensive. Before you jump into a new purchase for your old laptop, be sure to research the possibility of upgrading. If you decide to buy, do your homework. Study the laptop computers on offer and choose the one that suits your work style and your budget.

The Advantages of Using a Colour Laser Printer

Author: Derek Rogers
One of the problems that people face is not just deciding on which brand of printer to buy, but also what type of printer. Laser printers have existed for so long, but their price never fell underneath the tempting budget models of BubbleJet printers and other attractively priced units. Many people often believe that these laser printers are best for office use since they print faster, while home users would rather pay less and be patient instead. However there are various other advantages of colour laser printers over the other types available.

Less Frequent Ink Replacements

Ink replacements can not only add costs to a cheap printer, but they can also cause more inconvenience when a replacement ink cartridge is required, but not always readily available. While the installation of toners in laser printers is slightly more complex depending on the model, you will find these won't need replacing as often.

Bigger Savings in the Long Run

Buying that inexpensive coloured printer can undoubtedly save you money compared to getting a good laser printer. But if you start using it too often, you may find yourself spending more on ink cartridges and the expenses expanding since you always need a constant supply of coloured ink for continuous printing. Laser printers will save a lot more since they can printer more pages per supply toner.

Better Image Quality

Printers that use the traditional ink cartridge usually have worse quality than the standard laser printers. High end laser printers make a very noticeable difference in terms of colour accuracy and overall quality.

Faster Printing Speeds

When hundreds of pages need to be printed, the printer needs to work constantly to get each page printed swiftly. Regular printers have to go through a lot of work getting that done which can wear down the model. Whilst, laser printers can do this with ease and the users only need to wait a fraction of the time.

Less Prone to Errors

Some laser printers can be faulty, but better models can outperform the traditional models in terms of stability. No more getting a headache with those annoying paper jams that can sometimes be difficult to fix. Leaks and spillages are also less likely since a laser is being used for printing, which can significantly lower maintenance costs as well.

Easier to Use and Setup

Placing the paper properly in a regular printer can be a time-consuming step because of the chances of paper jam. Since laser printers have a more box-like design, papers are usually fed into the printer while lying flat giving a sure chance that the page will print properly. Since there are more electronics involved in laser printers, some models have LCD screens to aid in operation making it easier for people to use.

These are just some of the common advantages that are found in most coloured printers. There are even more advantages to some of the top selling models in the market which should be worth getting, especially for people that use their printer every day.

The Benefits of Completing a Network Audit

Author: Derek Rogers

The benefits of completing a network audit on your computer network are numerous. Not only does it help keep your computer network at optimal condition through analyzing power consumption, needed equipment upgrades or security issues, but can help establish an asset base and future cash flow needs for equipment and office space planning.

Typically, the benefits of completing a network audit can keep you informed of versions of software and licenses to help detect shortages or plan mass upgrades. Network audits can locate hard drives, network adapters, CPU details, motherboard specifications and peripherals and detect security issues, such as where antivirus or firewalls need to be installed.

Typically, one of the benefits of completing a network audit is to give you a comprehensive, no-hassle network inventory database that is extremely helpful in determining future needs when it comes to hardware and software. Another benefit of a network audit, is analyzing security needs, which is especially important to keep from costly downtime, or complete data loss, especially on large and scattered out networks.

Since many networks are built over a period of time by adding additional offices, computers and software, it can become difficult to determine whether upgrades will be easy and affordable or costly and lengthy, if you don't have a network audit. Sometimes, cost is a factor when thinking about upgrades, keeping up with new technology and a network audit can give a full picture of future needs in keeping your network efficient.

Certain businesses have government regulations in place that require them to protect secured and private information, such as credit card numbers, or whether your emails should be encrypted, for example. Depending on your business, a security breach could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, if a hacker gets hold of confidential information that was entrusted to you for a transaction from a customer.

Through a network audit, any possible areas where breaches could occur can be uncovered and dealt with. In a time where so much business is transacted over the Internet, security is of utmost importance, and the benefits of a network audit can help ensure that you are in compliance with protecting information, especially if you transmit financial transactions electronically.

Network audit can analyze physical networks, such as routers, telecom equipment, network switches and ports, as well as audit capacity management, configurations and network database populations, in the case of remote users. A network audit should be performed by an expert in the field that have in-depth telecom knowledge and comprehensive network audit experience.

This is not a field for amateurs, although there are some programs on the market that are do-it-yourself network audit software packages, which might be fine for a small office or home network audit.

If you have a number of computers or locations, a more comprehensive network audit would be needed to get sound advice on assets, upgrades, future needs and technological advancement options, in addition to security needs.

The benefits of completing a network audit are many, but they are necessary to assess future expenses and security breach weaknesses for businesses that handle sensitive information electronically.

Which is the Best Remote Access Software?

Author: Harry J. Andersohn

It's not all that often that I get to write about anything that I can literally say saved my life. And I don't think it's ever happened that I have written an article where I was talking about computer software that was able to accomplish this.

But that's exactly what we're going to talk about today. Now, I'm sure that you're not looking for the best remote access software because you're as desperate as I was three years ago for a remote PC solution, but I think that this little review is going to help you nonetheless.

First, I just want to give you a little bit of background and what my story and relationship is with remote access software, and then we're going to get into how to choose the specific software package that's going to be best for your situation.

So just hang in there for a minute while we cover the basics and the background first. I promise it will be worth it.

My own experience with remote access software came about reluctantly when I had to give up my beloved home office and turn it into a nursery for my second child. I used to do a lot of work at night, and running my home-based business basically depended on having access to my computer whenever I needed it.

Now for any of you out there who happen to have small children, you know that they don't often stick to an adult's sleep schedule. That's putting it mildly, right parents? Anyway, what I needed was a solution that would allow me to access my work computer whenever I needed it, without having to disrupt the new baby's sleep.

The perfect solution? Remote access software, of course.

Now, I will say that I was more than a bit skeptical that this stuff would even work at all. When it comes to me and computers, Murphy's Law definitely applies. There's always some sort of missing driver or misconfigured file that conflicts with this other missing driver and that other misconfigured file and I usually have to spend hours on the phone with tech support before I finally get frustrated and just give up.

But I have to admit that with the software package I wound up choosing there was none of this hassle. It was as close to plug-and-play as you can get. And for me, that was pretty important.

I would say it took me definitely less than 15 minutes, and probably less than 10, to download and install the software and to be controlling my computer remotely. I'm not kidding.

If you've never used good remote access software, prepare to be stunned. I have to admit that it is quite honestly probably the most useful piece of software I've used in years. The only thing that rivals it, in my opinion, is some really good voice-recognition software. But that's an article for a different day.

As long as you get a quality package -- and we'll get to where to find those in a second -- you honestly shouldn't have a problem whatsoever even if you're a complete computer knucklehead like I am.
