      Hyper-Threading

      Hyper-Threading technology is a technique that enables a single CPU to act like multiple CPUs. A CPU is made up of many smaller components. At any given time, one of these components might be busy, while the other components are waiting to be utilized. Hyper-Threading enables different CPU parts to work on different tasks concurrently.

      How to Solve “PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, Check Cable” Error

      PXE (Preboot eXecution Environment) is a boot environment that Intel created. The PXE allows a workstation to boot up by using a network interface before it boots the operating system from the local storage devices such as the hard disk. When hard disk boot failure occurs, the computer will not boot up and a message

      How an Inkjet Printer Works

      Inkjet printers contain hundreds of parts all working together to put millions of microscopic dots onto paper. There are five main components of an inkjet printer: print head, paper feeder, circuit board, power supply, and the case. Of these, the print head and paper feeder are the most interesting. The Print Head The print head

      EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory)

      EPROM or Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory was invented by Engr. Dov Frohman. It is a ROM-type chip that can hold data from 10-20 years. It is different from PROM because it can be programmed more than once. An EPROM programming is erased only through exposure to ultra violet light. The EPROM is configured or
