NVIDIA GeForce driver 196.75 kills video cards

12.jpeg


If you've recently updated your system to use NVIDIA's latest 196.75 WHQL GeForce driver, then you'll probably want to consider rolling back to a previous driver, as some users are reporting that issues with fan speed control are causing their graphics boards to fail. NVIDIA are currently investigating the problems, and have pulled the driver in question from their web site for the time being.


Several StarCraft II beta testers have reported their PC or video cards have died after installing the NVIDIA 196.75 drivers. The large amount of reports have prompted Blizzard Entertainment to issue an official statement on the tech support forums after identifying the source of the problem.


Nvidia says :

We are aware that some customers have reported fan speed issues with the latest 196.75 WHQL drivers on NVIDIA.com. Until we can verify and root cause this issue, we recommend that customers stay with, or return to 196.21 WHQL drivers. Release 196.75 drivers have been temporarily removed from our Web site in the meantime.

How to repair broken ribbon cable

800px-Flat-Flex-Cable.jpg
Ribbon cable are really pain to repair as they require too much hard work and really good concentration to repair as they are delicate ... that why i use to break them when doing some electronic project.


Recently i broke ribbon cable of my apple mighty mouse and i searched all Ebay for that spare part but no luck i couldn't find a single part , especially in india it's too difficult to get all these stuff.

But you see necessity is the mother of all invention , i did't invent this process but luckily i did repaired my ribbon cable.

Procedure Goes here:

To repair ribbon cable, expose the ends of the ribbon wires. Fine sandpaper (say 600 grade) usually achieves this is , but personally i used a fine razor blade.

"You only need to abrade about 1-2mm of the insulation for this and only on ONE side of the ribbon. Check with a continuity checker and a couple of sharp pins that you really have access to the wire.

"Use a piece of flexible adhesive tape Stick this on the back of the broken cable (i.e the side you DIDN't abrade), aligning the broken pieces as closely as possible.

"Next you take another two pieces of tape and you put them over the TOP of the ribbon cable so they wrap round to the tape underneath, but leaving a small gap at the point where the exposed wires are.

"Finally we are ready to bridge the broken cables. This is done with conductive epoxy resin. Silver-loaded resin can be purchased from specialist electronic stores. It is not cheap but cheaper than a new gadget, for sure, or more easier u can use fine point conductive pen and overcoat pen you can buy them from SUMITRON

Opening Banned Websites in any country, school or college

I really don't know why should i post this as i am white hat, but when i was in certain countries, school and colleges, which use to ban good websites like facebook youtube and orkut, then i thought what should i use to watch these banned website, first thing came to my mind is to connect to a proxy server in some other countries, ya that as a good thought and also a secure method from hackers and viruses that can pry on my computer,

But sometimes that can be too cumbersome to connect to a proxy server Hotspotshield
hss-logo.gif


But installing a software and using it at ease is not my way of working.

Than i thought of using google translator

As banned website can be routed though google server and make it appear like a valid site.

Just go to google translate enter website address and voila!!! it has opened.

So just smile dude :-)

Easier way to select strong but easier to remember password

Easier way of remembering strong password

Now a days with increasing number of security threats and more and more exploits and tools all accounts are easily compromised.

We tend to choose password which can be easy to remember so end up with our birthdate, spouse name etc etc ... these are the guys who don't care about their account and can open 2nd account when one is compromised.

Now there are some smart ass who are serious about losing their account they don't do mistakes which are done by normal user and so they choose password with words and numbers but i must tell you these are too vulnerable

Eg : curoiusgeorge1900

i cracked this is 90 minutes


good password but not so strong and can be easily hacked by any tool using dictionary list of words , most popular tool is "johntheripper" there are better and faster available now

So now we are in fix as we cant remember the random letters ( but we can remember word easily) as all of us don't have sharp memory or may be sharp enough to remember all the password of different accounts be it Email, Bank password.

This can be solved easily as below

curiosity killed the cat 80 my birth place is jaipur
or short form

(cktc80mbpij)


and this is a damn strong password , i was not able to crack this password. Program for ripping is running for 8 hours still got nothing.

So using longer statement or anything which u can remember.

cheers guys!!!!!!!

SMS Pen

sms_pen1.jpg





SMS & Email Pen -

D:Scribe is a digital fountain pen that allows users to send SMS and email messages from paper. Just write out the message and circle the person’s name to send. This does away with a keypad and allows you to focus on communicating in a more personal way from anywhere as long as you have a bluetooth enabled phone and a surface to write on. The pen also records everything you write which can be accessed on a computer. Of course for the creative peeps, if writing doesn’t suit your fancy, the D:Scribe also works with genius and not so genius drawings of brilliance.


sms_pen2.jpg





The design is loosely based on a quill and inkwell where by the quill is the writing apparatus and the inkwell is an electromagnetic induction charger.

Once a message is sent, the status is displayed on the built-in OLED screen. The designers have also expanded its capabilities beyond that of messaging. Should your home electronics and appliances be bluetooth enabled, you could potentially program the pen to input commands by writing in the air. A little abstract but lets pretend this idea is more a patent for possibilities. (source: via mail)

Modify Your CD-ROM to Watch DVD Movies


There are two types of CD-ROM drives we can mod:
24x to 40x
40x or higher

Drives slower than 24x are too old to be modded.

24x to 40x CD ROMs

Laser Head Adjustments:
The track pitch of CDs is 1.6 microns, and the track pitch of DVDs is only 0.8 microns. The minimum length of track pits of CDs is 0.843mm, and the minimum length of track pits of DVDs is 0.293mm. That's why DVD discs can store much more data in the size of a CD.

Pinpointing this situation, we need to adjust the laser head so it can read discs with smaller track pitchs and shorter track pits. Open up the CD-ROM drive, do you see a lens on the rail? That's the laser head. On the side of the laser head, there's a screw you can adjust.

This is the key of this mod.
This screw can adjust the size of the laser beam that lands on the disc. Referring to the above, after adjusting, the laser beam should be less than 0.293mm, to suit the needs of DVD discs. So turn that screw 2-3 times. I got this number through trial and error. Mark with a pencil, in case you forget how many times you turned that screw.

Speed adjustments:
DVD-ROM drives can play DVD movies smoothly at 4x speed. If we're modding a 32x CD-ROM drive, the rotation speed is obviously too high, increasing heat, and shortening the life of the drive.

So we need to decrease the speed of it.
Most people know that power supplies can provide 5V (red wire) and 12V (yellow wire) electricity output for Molex connectors. Find the Molex connector you'll plug into the modded CD-ROM drive, cut the yellow wire or insulate it with tape, so only 5V of electricity is transferred to the CD-ROM drive. The speed of the drive is now 32 * 5/17 = 9.41x and can now fulfill our requirements.

40x or higher CD ROMs

When 40x CD-ROM drives are released, most manufacturers are already producing DVD-ROM drives. To lower cost, they use the same core as DVD-ROM drives with DVD functions disabled. What we need to do here is to re-enable the DVD function.
Open up the CD-ROM, behind the circuit board, look for a jumper that says DVD JUMP. Find a jumper to connect this jumper. Thin metal wire also works fine.

OK, so the DVD function is unlocked, but we still need to decrease the speed. Use the instructions above on how to decrase the speed of the drive.

Notes:
Modded drives cannot be detected in POST, that means you cannot use it in DOS. But once you get into Windows, the drive works fine.
Modded drives have no region code problems.
Modded drives MIGHT NOT read DVD9 discs, that's why I said you can watch most retail DVDs in the beginning


I have Personally done this and works like wonder Voila!!!


Block USB Drive (A Registry Tweak)

Block USB Drive (A Registry Tweak)

To this what can be done is that the USB can be blocked and then stopping the use of USB drives,fearing you would loose your sensitive data Here is a simple registry hack to do so, try it with care.

1. Go to Start –> Run, type Regedit.
2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlset\Servic es\USBStor
3. In the right pane, look for value Start and have value as 0000000(3)
4. Double click on that and change that value to 4.

You might be required to restart the PC, and then you are done with it, USB is now blocked.

In case if you want to get the USB unblocked, just change the value again to 3

How to Restrict Your Search to Specific File Types

123a.jpg



Google can let you restrict your searches to only certain file types. This can be very helpful if you're looking specifically for file types, such as PowerPoint, (ppt) Word, (doc) or Adobe PDF.
To restrict your search to a specific file type, use the filetype: command. For example, try searching for:

hotel filetype:ppt





How to Restrict Your Google Search to Specific Domains or Specific Countries

123a.jpg


Most Web sites have a .com domain name. Sometimes it's better to restrict your searches to other domains, such as .edu or .net.
One great example of this is if you are looking for information about textbooks, but you didn't want to buy a textbook. An unrestricted Google search would mostly yield results from Web sites selling textbooks. One way to avoid this problem is to restrict your search to indian universities. To do this, you'd search for:

site:edu textbook
You can use this to restrict searches are to US government sites site:gov, or only specific countries site:in.




How to Use Google's Hidden Calculator


123a.jpg



1234546.jpg




Calculate, Measure, Convert, and More


Not only can you search the Web with Google, you can use it as a calculator. Google's calculator is more than an ordinary number cruncher. It can calculate both basic and advanced math problems, and it can convert measurements as it calculates. You don't even need to restrict yourself to numbers. Google can understand many words and abbreviations and evaluate those expressions, too.
Google's calculator was designed to solve problems without a lot of math syntax, so you may occasionally find calculator results when you didn't even realize you were searching for the answer to a math equation.

To use Google's calculator, simply to go to Google's search engine and type in whatever you'd like to be calculated. For instance, you could type:

3+3
and Google will return the result 3+3=6. You can also type in words and get results. Type in
three plus three
and Google will return the result three plus three=six.
You know your results are from Google's calculator when you see the picture of the calculator to the left of the result.

Complex Math

Google can calculate more complex problems such as two to the twentieth power,

2^20
the square root of 287,
sqrt(287)
or the sine of 30 degrees.
sine(30 degrees)
You can even find the number of possible groups in a set. For instance,
24 choose 7
finds the number of possible choices of 7 items from a group of 24 items.
Convert and Measure

Google can calculate and convert many common measurements, so you could find out how many ounces are in a cup.

oz in a cup
Google's results reveal that 1 US cup = 8 US fluid ounces. You can use this to convert just about any measurement to any other compatible measurement.
12 parsecs in feet
[blockquote shade= yes]37 degrees kelvin in Fahrenheit
You can also calculate and convert in one step. Find out how many ounces you have when you have 28 times two cups.

28*2 cups in oz
Google says that 28 * 2 US cups = 448 US fluid ounces. Remember, because this is a computer based calculator, you must multiply with the * symbol, not an X.
Google recognizes most common measurements, including weight, distance, time, mass, energy, and monetary currency.

Math Syntax

Google's calculator is designed to calculate problems without a lot of complicated math formatting, but sometimes it's easier and more accurate to use some math syntax. For instance, if you want to evaluate an equation that looks like a phone number,

1-555-555-1234
Google will probably confuse this with its hidden phonebook. You can force Google to evaluate an expression by using an equal sign.
1-555-555-1234=
This only works for problems that are mathematically possible to resolve. You can't divide by zero with or without an equal sign.
You can force parts of an equation to be resolved before other parts by enclosing them in parenthesis.

(3+5)*9
Some other math syntax Google recognizes:

+ for addition
- for subtraction
* for multiplication
/ for division
^ for exponential (x to the power of y)
% for modulo (to find the remainder after division)
choose X choose Y fines the number of possible subset groups of Y out of the set of X.
th root of creates the nth root of a number
% of finds percentages X % of Y finds X percent of Y.
sqrt finds the square root of the number that follows
ln logarithm base e
log logarithm base 10
lg logarithm base 2
! factorial - This must follow the number you wish to factor.
If you appreciate a more visual interface, you can use Soople's Advanced Calculator, which uses Google's engine to calculate.

Google's calculator isn't completely documented, so it may take some experimenting to find all of the hidden features.

The next time you find yourself wondering how much five liters is in gallons, rather than searching for a Web site for conversion, just use Google's hidden calculator.




How to Get Local Weather Forcasts in Google

123a.jpg




To find a quick local weather forecast in INDIA with Google, simply type weather followed by a city and state or a zip code. For example, to find the weather in Eldorado, Texas, search for
weather MUMBAI
You don't need to add commas between city and state, and you don't need to capitalize any names. You'll see a short listing of the local weather followed by relevant search results.

we.jpg



Note: Google is not forgiving with the spelling of city names when you use this shortcut.

How to Use Google as a Dictionary

123a.jpg



You may notice occasionally when you're searching for a word, Google will offer a link to Web definitions of your word. This is part of Google's hidden dictionary, a search of definitions on the Web.
Say you'd like to find out what a "clew" is. You could search for define clew, and most of the search results would have some sort of definition. However, this is really just a keyword search, so some of the results might be long articles on clews or only mention the definition in passing.

Define: Your Terms

If you're really only interested in finding a quick dictionary style definition of clew, use the syntax define:. The search in this case would be define: clew. From that search, we can instantly see that a clew is the lower corner of a boat sail.

The information is coming from a variety of dictionary related Web sites, and there's a link to the full entry for each Web site. Google also provides links to related searches, such as "clew bay."

What If You Can't Spell?

If you aren't the best speller or you make a typo, don't worry. Google will still suggest an alternate search, just as it does for regular Web searches. If we type in define: cliw, Google helpfully asks "Did you mean: define: clew."

How to Find Local Movie Showtimes With Google

123a.jpg



Rather than going to a Web site that lists local movies and showtimes, you can find out when a theater near you is playing a movie in one quick and easy step in Google.
The syntax for this is movie: followed by the movie name and your city name and state or zip code. Do put spaces in between the words. Capitalization doesn't matter. For instance, you could find local listings of 3 idiots in Mumbai by searching for:

movie: 3 idiots, Mumbai

Note: Google is not forgiving with the spelling of movie names. You must spell the movie exactly the way it appears, although you can leave off words Google usually ignores, such as "a" or "the."

Not only does Google list showtimes in theaters near that location, if there are any, it also shows you average movie reviews. You can click on the rating to the left to see more specific reviews pulled from various professional review sources.
Click on the map link next to a movie theater to open Google Maps and find driving directions to the movie. Click on the name of the theater to see all movies that are playing at that theater, plus reviews of those movies.

Next time you want to see a movie, just use Google and find out when your movie is playing, whether it's worth seeing, and what else is playing instead. It's faster than finding listings in the newspaper.

Use Google as Your Phonebook (Work for US only)

logo.gif



Google's phonebook can find US public business and residential numbers, and it can find them with less information than you need to look through the paper phonebook.
Google's phonebook is hiding within Google. Occasionally, phone numbers will appear in the search results page, depending on the keywords you type into the search box.

To access the phonebook directly, type phonebook: before your search. This opens up Google's residential phonebook.

You can find someone's phone number, but you do have to give Google a little information. For personal numbers, you generally need at least a last name and a state. To find all the Kaushal Kishore in US, for example, type phonebook:Kaushal Kishore. That's a lot of Kaushal Kishore, and probably not very useful to find a specific Kaushal Kishore. If you know more information, such as the city you're looking for or the full name, type that in too.

Limitations

Google's phonebook can only find public phone numbers. It can't find cell numbers. Quite often the numbers are outdated. I found two outdated phone numbers for a relative of mine, and his current phone number wasn't listed at all, even though it is public.

Reverse Lookup

Say you have a phone number and you want to find out who's number it is, such as from a message left on your cell phone. To do a reverse lookup, simply type the phone number into the main Google search engine, including the area code. Type using the format 555-555-5555 for best results. Google will still find the phone number if you use parenthesis around the area code, but you may also find some irrelevant results.

Remember, Google's phonebook doesn't contain any cell phone data.

When Google does find the name and address matching a phone number, it will also give you an handy link to Google Maps to get driving directions to that address.

This might look like a tool designed for stalkers, but Google is just putting together information already available from local phone directories and Internet phonebook searches. If you don't want Google to list your name and number, you can search for your own phone number and click on the "Request to have your name removed from this list" link in the search results. This will not remove your name from other Internet directories or phonebooks.

Find Business Phone Numbers

Business phone numbers appear within Google search results, but they aren't as easy to access from the phonebook. The quickest way to find business phone numbers in Google is to search with Google Maps.

Did you ever notice ridges on F and J key of keyboard

Untitled.jpg





Question

On my laptops keyboard (QWERTY) there are some ridges on the F and J buttons, what are they for?



Answer

People who touch-type (type without looking) use these two ridges to determine the position of their fingers on the keyboard. Touch typists put the index finger of their left hand on F and the index finger of their right hand on J before they type so they know where their fingers are at.

Hands-on early Windows Mobile 7 build

Russian mobile phone expert, Eldar Murtazin, the man who always seems to have his hands on things before they are released or before anyone else has outdone all of us once again, his tweets show that he is using an early build of WM7 on some unreleased device.

According to him WM7 is built-on an entirely different kernel from WM6.5 and other old version so Apps from these might not be able to run on it. He says that WM7 might seem to be the copy of Android or iPhone but WM7 will be a great change for the WM users but it’ll be for latest devices of HTC which are powerfull enough to support it, HTC HD2 might be the perfect candidate. While Microsoft might plan to keep on supporting there WM6.5 and lower WM for the users with less powerful devices like HTC Touch 2 or others.

Scientists Invent 30 Year Continuous Power Laptop Battery

Your next laptop could have a continuous power battery that lasts for 30 years without a single recharge thanks to work being funded by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory. The breakthrough betavoltaic power cells are constructed from semiconductors and use radioisotopes as the energy source. As the radioactive material decays it emits beta particles that transform into electric power capable of fueling an electrical device like a laptop for years.

Although betavoltaic batteries sound Nuclear they’re not, they neither use fission/fusion or chemical processes to produce energy and so (do not produce any radioactive or hazardous waste). Betavoltaics generate power when an electron strikes a particular interface between two layers of material. The Process uses beta electron emissions that occur when a neutron decays into a proton which causes a forward bias in the semiconductor. This makes the betavoltaic cell a forward bias diode of sorts, similar in some respects to a photovoltaic (solar) cell. Electrons scatter out of their normal orbits in the semiconductor and into the circuit creating a usable electric current.

The profile of the batteries can be quite small and thin, a porous silicon material is used to collect the hydrogen isotope tritium which is generated in the process. The reaction is non-thermal which means laptops and other small devices like mobile phones will run much cooler than with traditional lithium-ion power batteries. The reason the battery lasts so long is that neutron beta-decay into protons is the world's most concentrated source of electricity, truly demonstrating Einstein’s theory E=MC2.

The best part about these cells are when they eventually run out of power they are totally inert and non-toxic, so environmentalists need not fear these high tech scientific wonder batteries. If all goes well plans are for these cells to reach store shelves in about 2 to 3 years.
