      EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory)

      EEPROM stands for Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. An EEPROM is like an EPROM chip since it can be written in or programmed more than once. Unlike the EPROM chip, however, an EEPROM chip need not be taken out of the computer or electronic device of which it is part when a new program or

      What is a Microchip?

      A microchip, commonly called the integrated circuit, is a tiny electronic circuit. It is made up primarily of semiconductor devices. For the most part, these small microchips are used in nearly every type of electronic device known to man. As the years have gone on from their creation in the late 50s and early 60s,

      Types of Computer Monitors

      A computer monitor, technically termed as a visual display unit, can be plainly described as an electronic device that transmits information from the computer onto a screen, thereby acting as an interface and connecting the viewer with the computer. At present, computer monitors are available in a variety of shapes, designs, and colors. However, based

      DASD (Direct Access Storage Disk)

      A DASD, or Direct Access Storage Disk, is a type of storage device that is connected directly to a user’s computer rather than being connected to the network. Because many types of storage device connect directly to a user’s computer, the term “DASD” may apply to a variety of different devices; however, a DASD is

      Checksum Error

      In order to understand what a checksum error is, it is important to first learn what a checksum is. A checksum is a redundancy check during a computer’s start up process, which makes sure that the computer’s data is intact and unhampered. The data is scanned and tested for accuracy, either based on how well

      How to Connect Multiple Monitors to Your Laptop

      Many computer owners find the multiple monitor features extremely useful. The multiple monitor feature has been around for many years and is available on Macintosh computers, Linux computers and Windows Operating systems- specifically on Windows 98, ME, XP, and Vista. It is quite easy to add one or more monitor to your computer, however there

    • Lightning Arrester

      Lightning Arrester

      A lightning/surge arrester is a device that protects structures from electrical damage by intercepting lightning surges and diverting them to the ground. Lightning arresters are connected directly to the ground via low resistance cables, although they are generally mounted on high buildings or other structures in order to attract electricity. They can be used on

      How to Solve the “Power Calibration Error”

      The “Power Calibration Error” typically appears when someone attempts to burn a CD or DVD and the burner fails to write the CD or DVD. The error might also appear as a “Medium Speed Error.” Multiple factors can cause the error, but it is most likely to occur because the CD/DVD burner is not able
