Today, we are going to discuss on how to possibly get rid of the

Press F-1 To continue, F-2 to enter setup”  error message. IMG_0341 (2)

I was working on a Dell Dimension 9100,   I had just finished re-installing the Operating System Microsoft Windows XP, restarted the computer and then the error message appeared. I have seen this in the past and really wasn’t sure on how to get rid of it, one of the ways, is usually to

replace the CMOS Battery. Below is a link how to replace the Battery. This goes in-depth.

https://infotechcomputing.wordpress.com/2012/08/29/changing-the-cmos-battery/

Replacing the CMOS Battery didn’t work this time, so I restarted the computer. Pressing F-2, I was able to boot into the Bios Menu.  After going through all the different sub-Menu’s, I came across “Post Behavior” My Bios is a Phoenix bios yours might be something else.

So, I came across four different things to try. They were:  Fast Boot, Num lock Key, Post Hotkey and Keyboard Error

Now, depending on the circumstance or system. this may or may not work.

 When I got to Keyboard Error.  I  set  it up as to not report keyboard errors.

Pressed enter, than saving upon exiting, which is  usually ESC(Escape Key,) F-10 to save settings.

Restarted the computer and the error message was gone. To be sure I restarted the computer, no error message was present.

I Hope this helps you out.

God Bless

Have you ever had your hard drive die and you need to get your pictures or music. What do you do now? I know there are programs out there that allow you to do this, but, let say what if there was another way, where you could do it yourself. Well, there is a device put out by Sabrent,and other companies, however the one from “Sabrent” also have a light indicator and gives you different connections.  It is called a USb 2.0 to Sata/Ide Hard Drive Adapter. I found this device from a YouTube video by accident. I picked up the device from the Walmart.com Website for about 35.00. Lets see how it worksIMG_0312 (2)

I will be transferring the data from an   Iomega IDHD 320-U External Hard Drive to a Compaq Presario cq5320y on a 64 bit motherboard that is running Windows 7

Now, taking the Iomega External hard drive, remove the two screws from the rear ,  the housing should  slide right off.

You will need to  disconnect the  power and 40 pin connector from the hard drive. Make sure you are using the ESD Strap. To prevent damaging the hard drive.
Next connect the  Sabrent hard drive adapter. this will be the  Square plastic  connector, this will plug in to back of the Hard drive depending if you are using a IDE or SATA. the SATA connection is at the top, IDE will be on the left, the other one is used to connect a laptop hard drive.  a USB   will plug into the computer, the other end will plug into the back of the IDE hard drive. Should you be using the Sata connection you will need to use Sata colored wire.

You will find that there is a power cord, like on the back of your computer. which will  connect to the Power Adapter. On the end of the power Adapter, is a power plug that goes into the back of the hard drive.

Now, that you have connected the SATA,  or IDE connection,  go to the computer.

Click on computer tab  to see if your connected devices appears with your list of hard drives.

Once the Hard Drive has been identified,  double Click on it .  You Should  see  the files of the folder.making a new folder

Now, you need to make a new folder. To do this, go to the desktop, Right-Click, go down to New and click on Folder.  Open up the folder and  Drag one of the folders to the new folder then it  should start to copy the new files.

When that is done drag the next folder until  you have completed transferring all the files or what will fit on your hard drive. God Bless

Deleteing photos on iPhone 5


Well, I noticed a lot of pictures on my iPhone 5. Like you I do take a lot of pictures, then I forget about them. Just haven’t had a lot of time to look them over. Some need to be edited, while others just need to go. There are two ways in which you can do this. After you switch on the camera, and get IMG_0261past the password lock-screen,  go to the camera Icon, Camera Roll, click on the picture, and on the bottom to the far right you will see a trash can, click on this, you can either delete Photo or Cancel.

This other tip, I learned from the internet. First thing you want to do is switch on your iPhone 5, click on the home button, this is  at  the bottom of the screen. Than once you get past the lock-screen, click on the camera icon. camera roll, at the top you should see all, Photo’s and video. Click on Photo’s, on the bottom you should see a small box with an arrow, click on this and just touch on each photo. A red check mark  will appear on each picture. You can either share or delete these pictures.

Beginners basic guide of the computer Part two

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA As I spoke of last week, this will be a continuing subject and we will see how it goes.  We will start at the rear of the computer. At the top you will see a three prong plug socket this is  for plugging in the computer to an electrical socket.

To the left  is the power supply. There is a small fan inside which, helps in cooling the power supply.

Below the power supply is the main cooling fan unit.   Some manufacturers may not have this feature.

The next port is what is called a PS/2, it  is a six pin (Mini-din Connector)   These  are color coded,  purple is for the keyboard, green for the mouse.

Further down is a nine pin connection, this is known as a serial port

This next connector is a fuchsia colored connector  called a parallel port LPT this port is used for a specific printer socket. A USB(Universal Serial Bus) is what is now used instead of the parallel port LPT

The next is the VGA (Video Graphics Array) VGA was developed by IBM, in 1987. It consists of a 15 pin plug, which will be found on some older  computers, and Monitors. This can either be used to connect to a LCD (Liquid Crystal Display)  or  a CRT (Cathode ray tube)  Monitor.

DVI (Digital Visual Interface) is used to connect to a LCD Monitor or Projector. This device can also connect to VGA by using a DVI adapter to VGA.  Some Monitors have both.

Next are two color coded inputs, the first is used for the microphone, it will be pink, the green one is for connecting a set of speakers.

The Ethernet plug, or a network connection  allows access  to the internet.  A RJ-45 Cord is what connects the exterior modem to the computer. It looks like a telephone plug, however is much bigger. These are either supplied by your local Cable Company or something you would buy yourself  at a electronics’ store.

Next should be what are called as USB or Universal Serial Bus, these are used to connect a mouse, keyboard or other electronic devices.

At the bottom are four slots,  these are for inserting a dial-up modem,  a new  graphic’s card.  Some motherboard’s  may have a PCI slot (Peripheral   Component Interconnect), and a  AGP slot (Accelerated Graphics Port) while, others may have just one  this would depend on the motherboard or Manufacturer of the computer.
