A CPU is a computer processor. A desktop or a laptop have the processor on the motherboard. Do you mean an external hard drive? If so, then yes. Any USB hard drive will attach to the desktop or laptop for external storage.

Top 1 to 5 tips to extend your laptop battery life


1. Defrag regularly - The faster your hard drive does its work – less demand you are going to put on the hard drive and your battery. Make your hard drive as efficient as possible by defragging it regularly. (but not while it’s on battery of course!) Mac OSX is better built to handle fragmentation so it may not be very applicable for Apple systems.

2. Dim your screen – Most laptops come with the ability to dim your laptop screen. Some even come with ways to modify CPU and cooling performance. Cut them down to the lowest level you can tolerate to squeeze out some extra battery juice.

3. Cut down on programs running in the background. Itunes, Desktop Search, etc. All these add to the CPU load and cut down battery life. Shut down everything that isn’t crucial when you’re on battery.

4. Cut down external devices – USB devices (including your mouse) & WiFi drain down your laptop battery. Remove or shut them down when not in use. It goes without saying that charging other devices (like your iPod) with your laptop when on battery is a surefire way of quickly wiping out the charge on your laptop battery.

5. Add more RAM - This will allow you to process more with the memory your laptop has, rather than relying on virtual memory. Virtual memory results in hard drive use, and is much less power efficient. Note that adding more RAM will consume more energy, so this is most applicable if you do need to run memory intensive programs which actually require heavy usage of virtual memory.

What do i need in a new desktop/Laptop


Sorry guys, my first time i posted this, the tip wouldn't load, so here it is

The basic answer is simple, you need a computer that provides your needs. When looking for a computer, there are a lot of factors to consider and ill look at them with you

First off

Space:
People often don't consider this one. You need a computer in a defined space, if its too big then its not ideal for you to use. And you also must factor in your additional items like speakers, printers, work space and so on. Lay out what you have and from there work out a practical size for your computer or laptop

Laptop VS Desktop. What do i go with?

This is a very debatable question many people have when deciding. Many factors need to be assessed before asking this question, here are the most common ones you should ask

Am i a mobile person?
This means that you work or go places quite often, like for example a teacher or a traveler. If you answered yes, a laptop would be your best option if you need frequent access to a machine, but if you answered no, or do not need frequent access to a machine, then a desktop is a more preferable choice

So whats the advantages and disadvantages of Desktops and Laptops?

Both are fairly good but do have limiting factors, here they are

Desktops
Positives
- You can get more for your dollar
- They will last longer
- They can be easily upgraded and maintained
- A Desktop can perform better then a laptop
- You can choose almost all of the parts in a desktop you want

Negatives
- They are large and heavy, not ideal for constant mobility
- You need to factor additional items like screen and speakers
- They have no backup source of power
- They take up power points and space
- They can get very dusty and cause overheating

Laptops
Positives
- Laptops generally come with all the features you need, like screens, speakers, software
- They are battery powered, and designed to be used almost anywhere
- They are small and lightweight, so they will not need as much space and resources
- Most popular places, like airports, have wireless internet access for the public to use
- They are good for people who have to travel for work

Negatives
- There is limited choice in what you can get extra
- They cost more then a desktop
- They need to be looked after very well as they can get damaged very easily
- They generally only have a life of 3-4 years
- The battery can become obsolete and they are very costly to replace

Once you have decided, here are the other areas you need to consider

Hard Drive Space
This is important, as you will want to have free space or your computer will not perform as well as it should. For general use, 120 GB+ is good. For people who make large files like movies or photos, you will want a 250GB+ and a external storage device

RAM and CPU
This determines how fast your machine is. Most computers will now run windows vista or 7, but ill also add XP as well

XP - 1GB RAM and 1.6GHz CPU minimum
Vista and 7 - 2GB RAm and 2.3GHz CPU minimum

Graphics
Gamers and multimedia are only really considered in this. If you use it for general things, the graphics provided is generally good enough. For people who need it, this is based on what you need it for and external research is needed.

Speakers
Laptops come with speakers per-installed. Desktops can vary, but some will need external speakers

Screen
Laptops come with a built in screen, desktops need a external screen with the correct input. The most common one is D-Sub (Also called RGB and VGA) and is a blue color adaptor. newer connections are DVI, S-Video and HDMI (HDMI is also a source of sound). When looking for a screen, make sure it will have the appropiate connections

Keyboard and Mouse
Laptops have these pre-built into them. Desktops need external ones. there are many types of wired and wireless keyboards and is based on personal choice

Power Supply and Motherboard
This is for people who wish to build their machine. Further research is needed to make sure all the above will be supported by the motherboard and Power supply

These are the main factors, so think about this then based on this information, you should have decided what you want.

Asus eetop 2203t overheating cpu


The heat-sink copper pipe contains a liquid coolant inside. If this leaks (and it definitely does in some cases) the CPU will rapidly overheat.
To fix the problem you can either purchase a replacement part or cut holes in the case (not an easy task) and add an additional external fan over the CPU.

When i turn on only thing that happens is cpu fan and cd rom i can hear thats it


Try to connect it to a external monitor, if you can see the desktop it's the LCD on the laptop. If you can't see the desktop on the external you probably have a bad video chip on the motherboard. I'ts up to you if you want to spend the money on repairing it or use that money towards a new one.

If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

Blank screen(beeping sound)


Hi Powee,

It's definitly a memory issue. What you might wanna do, is open your CPU and take out the memory sticks from the memory slots. After this, try either blowing or vacumming (if you have one of em small PC vacumm cleaners) the slots whcih contained the memory sticks. Also, dont forget to blow off any dirt that might be on the memory stick(s) itself.

After this, just insert the memory stick(s) back into it's slot(s) and try to rebppt your computer again. Most of the time it should work. However, if you still face this issue, then it means that your memory itself is corrupt and you might need to buy a similar capacity memory altogether.

As a side note, if your computer comes from a manufacturer like dell or acer, you might wanna get them to look into the issue if it;s still under warranty (or even if it's not). Certain "branded" computers have their own way of functioning. Hope this helped.

Right-click an empty area of the Windows Desktop (your main screen). Click Properties, then the Settings tab. Under the slider labeled Screen area or Desktop size, slide the slider and click apply until you find the size that takes the fuzziness out of your laptop display.

Hope This helps!
