Wondering What’s Causing Problems on Your Windows 7 PC? – Use Reliability Monitor

Nobody likes interruption and in the days of high speed technology and connectivity what can be more annoying than your PC getting hanged or crashed.

All software giants are putting efforts towards making the most powerful device in your life more and more error free and if that’s not entirely attainable, then to at least make the errors resolvable for the users. It would be of great use if you can fix small problems in your system on your own, rather than bringing in your computer expert every time.

Reliability Monitor Windows 7 PC

So, if anyone out there is suffering with this technological ailment, they need to try using the Reliability Monitor that is enabled with Windows 7. It is a control panel application which had been introduced in the new Windows Vista. Windows have had a Performance Monitor from the start but this is a new concept introduced.

Earlier in Windows Vista, the Reliability monitor and Performance Monitor were a combined application. But with Windows 7, they are two separate tools and have hence improved their prowess.

This is how this system works – on an occasion of BSOD crash, i.e. Blue Screen of Death you do not get time to record error messages or notice what suddenly went wrong – from the Reliability Monitor history, you are able to retrieve all the data.

This software also aids in helping you locate any issues with other applications. The application keeps track of specified five kinds of situation in your computer system like – Software installations, Application failures, Hardware failures, Windows failures, miscellaneous failures.

Reliability Monitor projects a timeline of various system events and then efficiently divides them into failures, warnings and information. In your PC, the Reliability Monitor gives a rating on a scale of 1 to 10. Here 1 stands for horrible and 10 is perfect. One just needs to understand how to use the Reliability Monitor in your Computer system.

How to Use the Reliability Monitor in Windows 7:

  1. Open the Action Center from your control panel.
  2. Select “Maintenance” to expand the menu.
  3. Select “View reliability history” under Check for solutions to problems reports.
  4. You will get a report covering the specified period of time.

Other way to operate Reliability Monitor:

  1. Open Start menu.
  2. Type ‘reliability’ or even ‘rel’ in the search bar.
  3. Double click on ‘view reliability history’.
  4. The report will open.

If you select a particular date, you will get more specified information about the reported event. On occasions of multiple failures in a day, you will have all the details.

The special part of the entire Reliability Monitor is the fact that it gives a clear central place or console to view the exact error causing problems in your system.  Each error projected by this monitor is given a ‘Check for a solution’ link. Here you can select the link by which Windows checks the error against the Microsoft’s online database of solutions. Later through Action center you can find the solution best suited to your problem.

I know the unexpected errors in PC aggravates the mind  and I have tried my best to provide you the best solutions. I hope my write-up helped you in recognizing the errors on your Windows 7 PC. Feel free to put-upon your queries, I will keep trying resolving them.

My younger son is really fond of watching wrestling matches. He never misses the WWE and WWF matches on TV but power cuts here in India often take this joy away from him. Then, all he wants me to do is to give him my laptop to watch the wrestling match on YouTube.

Moreover, he wants me to watch the YouTube videos on the big TV Screen and so I need to connect my laptop with TV for him.

Do you know it is very easy to connect a laptop to TV screen?

Well, there are many different ways to connect your laptop to a TV screen. You need to decide the way you want to connect your laptop to a TV screen  depending upon the ports available on your TV and of course, your laptop.

Connect A Laptop To TV Screen

Step #1: Connect Laptop to TV with S-Video Cable

S-Video Cable to Connect Laptop to TV Screen

Usually, there is an S-Video port in all laptop / computers and similar S-Video input in the TVs as well. All you need to connect these ports is a cheap S-Video Cable. Usually, this cable has 4-7 pins. You can also use a 15-pin VGA Cable if you have an older monitor.

Don’t worry, this 15-pin cable also provides a good picture quality, same as that provided by an S-Video Cable.

The latest laptop computers and HDTVs have same DVI ports and so you can also use DVI to HDMI Adapter cable or Male to Male cable to connect a laptop to TV.

DVI to HDMI Cable to Connect Laptop to TV Screen

DVI to HDMI cable works when your HDTV has an HDMI port instead of a DVI port.

Step #2: Connect the Audio Cable For Sound

RCA Audio Cable to Connect Laptop to TV Screen

Now, when you have connected your laptop with your TV, you need a separate cable for sound. I would like to mention here that all the cables I mentioned above can transmit only video.

Audio RCA cable is used for sound when you connect a laptop with TV.

To connect audio line out from your laptop to TV, you need a 3.5 mm mini RCA Audio Cable. This cable has three different colored sockets – red, black and white.

Insert red connector in red socket of your TV and white connector to white socket of the TV. The black connector will go in your headphone jack of your computer.

Step #3: Laptop Settings

For Windows XP

Go to ‘Display settings’ in your laptop. You will see a tab saying ‘Output To TV Screen’ – Activate it.

For Windows 7 

Go to keyboard shortcut ‘Windows +P’. This is a shortcut for display settings in Windows 7.

Step #4: TV Remote Settings to Connect a laptop to TV

Go to Menu.

Switch to ‘External Inputs’.

Change default Video 1 to Video 2 or HDMI 1.

That’s all, you are done. Your laptop is now connected to TV screen and you can now enjoy the YouTube videos on big TV screen.

Note: Its worth mentioning here that sometimes your computer may fail to recognize the external display. To avoid that, you must connect the Video Cable to TV before turning your computer ON.

To get a better picture quality, you may also need to change the screen resolution settings in your TV. You can use the Display Settings option for this.

So, wasn’t that simple to connect a laptop to TV?

This device runs on the Intel x86 hardware. Presently, an older version of Android is being run on the virtual machine which is safe and maximizes functionality and the newer versions can be tested if this is successful. The VirtualBox was installed on the running arch AMD Linux system. It is seen that Android performs better on Intel hardware but the AMD machine also works with just a few warnings popping up. The ICS runs only on the Intel x 86 hardware.

Running the Android OS on Your PC

Broadband Hack – How to Increase the Speed of your Internet Connection

Broadband internet connection is the ideal thing for anyone accessing the internet in the modern-day. With a fast broadband internet connection, companies are able to reliably communicate with each other in a faster means and internet users find it convenient browsing from their homes.

The speed of the connection can vary greatly, so it is important to carefully select DSL service providers. And many a times, even though you have got a great Broadband provider (ISP), broadband can become slow when the user does some certain things on the computer. While this can be reversed, it takes some steps which are unknown to many internet users out there.

Increase Broadband Internet Connection Speed

We have already shared with you some effective ways to speed up wireless broadband Internet connection; in this post, we talk about your internet connection in general. If you’ve noticed that your broadband internet connection has stopped browsing as fast as it used to be, then you might need to follow the tips in this post.

Tips to Overcome the Issue of Slow Internet Connection

Remove Temp Files and Cache

Temporary internet files, otherwise known as Temp Files, are often downloaded from pages of websites you visit regularly and stored on your computer’s browser to optimize the loading speed of the said website. While this will help make certain websites load faster on your computer using the old images that were downloaded and stored to enhance its loading speed, it will not make your internet browser respond better to new websites.

Now, considering that websites today are being updated regularly, the Temp Files and cache your internet browser has downloaded will only make the loading speed of your internet become dragged, which will result in you having a slow internet connection.

Remove the temporary files that are stored on your browser by pressing “crtl+shft+del” on your keyboard and selecting “Everything” from the option.

Stop Sharing of Internet Connection

Sharing becomes an option when there are two or more computers ready to connect to the internet while there’s just a single means of internet connection, such as an internet ready modem. The user with the internet ready modem can generously allow other users to connect to the internet through his computer by broadcasting their wireless network which enables others to connect wirelessly to the internet.

The benefit of sharing is that you use a single internet ready modem to get more computers to connect to the internet, but the disadvantages are more. Below are a few of them:

  • Internet Becomes Slow
  • Host computer suffers quick battery run-down
  • Causes host computer to overheat

With the disadvantages you get from sharing, your network will always perform slowly.

Detect and Stop Background Internet Consuming Software

Finally, one good way to tackle a slow broadband internet connection is to try and detect any internet consuming program running in the background. These programs are usually designed to communicate to their server using the internet without the consent of the computer user, thereby causing the internet connection the computer is using to drag.

To detect any program running in background on your computer, just run the windows Task Manager by right clicking on the Taskbar in windows and click “Start Task Manager”. A list of programs running on your computer will be displayed in the task manager and you can choose which you want to end.

Do let us know if these simple tips help you in speeding up your internet connect. Also, do share with us tips and tricks you are using to tackle this issue of slow internet connection.

II. CSV File Method to Transfer Contacts from iPhone to Android

Another method, though this one is a bit complicated, includes you to create a sync of your contacts with Windows and then with Google, and for this you need to create a CSV file. Below are the steps in this process:

  • Connect your iPhone or any other iOS Device via USB to your PC

There are a few software available to do the same, in the market. You can download one from the SMS Export. Simply download the app and install it on your PC. Now, you need to have the same software on your iPhone from the App Store which is available at a price of $4.99.

Download the Android App ‘SMS Migrator’ from here and install it to your Android phone. Place the text file from the PC to the SD card of the Android and access the same over the app SMS Migrator. The app will do the rest of the work by providing you with the texts that you had over the iPhone.

For the rest of the stuff, you simply have to get them from the PC where they are already present in the iTunes library. Select and download them from the PC with the help of the USB cable. It is as simple as transferring media files to the pen drive or flash drive.

Android is though rumored to be strictly against the word Exchange, but if you know the right kind of procedure, you are on the move to have the back up from your iPhone of all the data present there.

If the problem persists with the Msimg32.dll registry entry download a copy of the registry cleaner and try solving the issue with that software. But this technique is least recommended.

One can also try installing the latest available updates for the Windows. Sometimes this might also do the trick.
