The motherboard is also called the system (System Board) or the main (Main Board). This important node of a computer system combines its basic devices and provides data transfer between components connected to the bus boards. The most important element of the board itself is the so-called chipset. It is this part of the motherboard that must be productive enough to ensure a smooth and high-speed data transfer between components of a computer system. Also, through the motherboard, the power supply supplies all the main devices of the computer. Different boards differ in size or form factor.
Chipset – the main element of the motherboard
System boards were relatively recently – until the mid-80s – equipped with a large number of huge microcircuits responsible for various functions of the motherboard. However, already in 1986, the specialists of Continue reading
From the point of view of a service engineer, a laptop is a combination of rather complex electronic devices connected with each other. A working laptop is just one condition that constantly strives for a broken one for a number of reasons. It makes sense to describe all these reasons so that the user knows about them in advance, which means that he is on the alert.
I. One of the main causes of a laptop breakdown is overheating. The fact is that all the elements of a laptop work comfortably only in a certain temperature range. During operation, the laptop may become so hot that it will not be able to function at the moment. This can be for a number of reasons: the cooling system Continue reading
The hard drive is designed for long-term storage of files. Problems with a hard drive can lead not only to unstable computer operation, but also to the loss of important and sometimes irreplaceable information.
One of the causes of a HDD malfunction is natural aging. Like any mechanical device, a hard disk has a certain resource of work. For example, discs manufactured by Seagate can withstand up to 50,000 on and off cycles.
Hard drive crashes can occur due to overheating. HDD temperature should not exceed 55 degrees. You can check it using special utilities. For example, the AIDA program. If the temperature of the hard drive is Continue reading
