10 Computer tips to bring computer to normal state when it freezes or hangs up

Sometimes when you are in the middle of someting and suddenly your computer hangs or freezes. You are left with no other option than to restart your computer directly. But the only problem is, you have not saved your work! Don’t panic! There is a solution for that! And you can surely save your file! Here’s how: First keep on pressing “Num Lock” key until your Operating system is back to normal state. This releases the processor from any busy process. If this doesn’t work then follow the below ten tips to bring you computer back to normal state when it is struck.
1. Click on “ctrl-alt-delete” keys. The windows task manager will then open, click on all programs that you don’t need and end the task. You will see that all programs on your taskbar will close one by one. If this will resolve the issue! – then save!
(tip# 1:
 if you’re working on an MS Office application, it will automatically save your file in case the programs suddenly shut down —
tip# 2:
always save your file at least every 2 minutes by just simply clicking on the “diskette icon”— its just one click!)
2. If it did not resolve the issue, are there some users logged on that computer? If so, go to switch user (for XP) and log off that user, go back to your log on screen and log on again. The reason the computer hang up is because if there are many open programs and applications, these retains in the memory, if it is too much for the memory to handle, it freezes! Another reason too the computer hang up is because if you are connected to the internet via dial up, and you are running too many applications and opening many websites. So I suggest, if you are multimedia user or a heavy internet user, then you are better off with a higher memory, at least 512Mb of memory. There are simple ways to avoid computer to freeze or hang up:
3. Clean your history at least once a week >tools>internet options>clear history. I normally set my history to “0”, meaning, when I restart my computer, it doesn’t save history pages that I have visited
4. Delete all internet temporary files >tools>internet options>delete files (do the “offline” content too!)
5. Delete cookies (some do not do this, but I do delete cookies at least once a week!) >tools>internet options>delete cookies
6. Remove unnecessary programs that you no longer use they are just occupying space and memory! >control panel>add/remove programs
7. Do defragmentation at least once a week >point the mouse to “start” button, then right click “explore”>right click the mouse pointing to drive C (which is usually the main system logical drive) >properties>tools>defragment now
8. You can also check the logical drive’s volume for errors >point the mouse to “start” button, then right click “explore”>right click the mouse pointing to drive C (I repeat, is usually the main system logical drive) >properties>tools>check now
9. It is better to have only one user being logged on. Even if there are many users, make sure the user logs off after using the computer, rather than keeping it logged on and you do the switching of users. Switching users is good as long as you don’t keep all users logged on—I think that is more logical
10. Always shut down properly the computer (do NOT use the power button when turning it off!

Facts to Know About Computer Drivers

Here’s a quick guide that will supply you with all you need to know about computer drivers and keeping them error free.
What are device drivers?
Device drivers are software programs that help your operating system communicate with your hardware devices such as the keyboard, printer, web cam, video card, etc. A device driver controls a particular type of hardware device. When you buy a new computer, many device drivers are built into the product. These integrated drivers have the capability to support a variety of hardware devices. However, you will need to install drivers manually for those hardware devices that are released after your operating system.
What are common causes of driver errors?
Generally, driver errors occur when any of the following conditions hold
a) The required device driver is missing.
b) Your device driver is outdated.
c) Your device driver files are corrupt.

You can install a driver either by using the driver CD or DVD that came with the hardware device or by downloading the required driver from its manufacturer’s website.
Step 2 –
Update your driver If you already have the required driver on your system, then ensure that it is
up to date. There are two ways through which you can update your device drivers. You can either use a driver update tool to automatically download the latest driver updates or install new updates manually. You can read the Driver Finder review here to understand how driver update programs allow you to update all installed drivers in just a few minutes. In case you want to update your drivers manually, you can either use a built-in utility called the Device Manager or download the new updates directly from the driver manufacturer’s website. Windows 7 and Windows Vista users can perform the following steps to update their drivers via the Device Manager:
1. Click the Windows button.
2. Click Control Panel.

4. Double-click the hardware device whose driver is reporting an error.
5. Double-click the faulty device driver.
6. Click the Driver tab.
7. Click the Update Driver button.
8. Select Search automatically for updated driver software.
9. Follow the onscreen instructions to install the new driver.
Step 3 –
 Scan your computer for infections Update your protective software with the latest malware definitions and run a thorough malware scan on your computer. In case the scan results show the presence of malware, quarantine or delete them immediately by using your protective software.
Step 4 –
Scan your registry ,If the above steps fail to resolve the error, then chances are that information related to your drivers in the registry is incorrect or missing. To ensure this is not the case, scan your registry by using reliable registry repair software.

10 things to know about Facebook Graph Search

Facebook has launched Graph Search, a new search tool that uses social data to provide you with the best possible answers to your queries. Not sure what this feature will can do for you? Worry not, here's a quick guide to help you familiarize with Facebook Graph Search.
Here's over to 10 things you need to know about Facebook Graph Search.
What is Facebook Graph Search?
Facebook Graph Search is a new social search tool aimed at making it easier for users to find people, photos, places, interests. You can look for people who live in the same city as you or like your favourite cuisine. Similarly, you can ask for reviews of a movie or a restaurant that you are thinking of checking out and lots more with this feature.
All you need to do is to type the specific question in the big search bar on top of a Facebook page. You can even improve queries with 'Refine This Search' box, placed on the side of the search bar.
What can I do with it?
With Facebook Graph Search, you can ask specific questions about your friends, such as 'my friends who like The Beatles' or places your friends 'like'. Not only this, you can be even more specific while asking questions, for example 'my friends in New Delhi, who like trekking'.
Graph Search will dish out the best photos of your friends, based on the most number of likes and comments they get.
How can I join it?
Currently, Facebook Graph Search is in early stage of development and is undergoing beta testing. Moreover, it will initially be available for only a few thousand users in the US. However, you can sign up for Graph Search beta testing at even if it is not available in your region.

Is it available on mobile or desktop?
As of now, the new search feature by Facebook is not available on mobile devices and is limited to desktops only.

Is it not web search?
No, the difference between Graph Search and web search is that the former harnesses the potential of social data in Facebook's server, while the latter makes uses all the websites on the World Wide Web. Therefore, while you can find a movie review by a prominent critic on a Google or Bing search, you will get to know what your friends think about the movie through Facebook Graph Search.
 In case Graph Search is unable to find suitable answers to your queries, Microsoft Bing will instead provide related web search results.

Will this make all my Facebook data searchable?
No. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg stressed that only the data you share with the world will be included while computing Graph Search results. Therefore, if you have made a certain photograph available to friends of your friends, then they may find it in the result upon making a specific query, even though you are not directly connected. Same goes for pages you have liked, places you were tagged at and movies you saw, events you went to etc.
However, Facebook will not take into account status updates while computing Graph Search results.

What about my Instagram photos?
Even though Facebook owns Instagram, it has decided not to include photos posted via the mobile photo sharing app in its Graph Search results.

Who all can search for me?
Anyone on Facebook you have not blocked will be able to see data if it crops up in Graph Search results. However, you can still enjoy privacy by restricting data like photos, friend list, personal details etc to certain groups, such as friends only.

Graph Search affects my current privacy settings in any way?
No, the Graph Search does not change your current privacy settings in any manner. People can only search for content that has been shared by you.
What does it mean for online marketers?
Facebook Graph Search will help businesses understand their audiences better. For example, a sports merchandise brand can now accurately find out how many people in any particular region, say Mumbai, like MS Dhoni. Moreover, standalone businesses like restaurants can target the local populace with queries like 'people in Bangalore who like XYZ cuisine'.
