Ada Byron, Lady Lovelace

Ada Byron was the daughter of a brief marriage between the Romantic poet Lord Byron and Anne Isabelle Milbanke, who separated from Byron just a month after Ada was born. Four months later, Byron left England forever. Ada never met her father (who died in Greece in 1823) and was raised by her mother, Lady Byron.

First Steps: NeoWhimsies: NeoPopRealism Ink Drawing for Beginners


Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.” The use of the term ‘Imagination’ in arts is for the process of drawing new images that have not been previously experienced with the help of what has been seen before or at least only partially or in different combinations.

Troubleshooting tips – computer hardware

Posted by Computer Components For You | all computer articles,computer hardware articles | Tuesday 21 December 2010 9:16 pm
Although computer hardware has evolved significantly to an extent where problems are rare if they do in fact happen, we should be ready to handle the situation ourselves to a certain level as most of the time there is a very basic reason behind the issues. This means a call to tech support/technician may not always be required. This article will discuss a few common problems a computer user may encounter in their day-to-day operations.

It would be difficult for a nonprofessional or a basic computer user to understand the reasons behind any hardware issues and hence we should understand the problems first, diagnose, and troubleshoot accordingly. Listed below are a few common problems that appear with computer hardware.

Starting problem: In case you are not able to start the system, you should first look at the power supply of the compute. If all the wires are connected properly, then replace the power cable with another cable to see if the cable is damaged. If you still have the problem, the SMPS-Switched Mode Power Supply seems to be not working properly and you will need to contact a technician for a replacement.

Abrupt shutdown: There may be various reasons behind this, mostly contributed to software issues. However, if you have already checked that and know for sure that your software is not the culprit, then consider that there are possible issues with the computer hardware that may be causing this. The most common reason behind abnormal shutdown is overheating of your computers processor. In addition, the reasons behind this could be a non-functional fan in the unit. You can simply check the fans working condition on the backside of the CPI (in the case of a desktop) or you can use software to tell you if the system is overheating. Continue reading
