CPU Fan Error! Press F1 to Resume, FIXED!

CPU Fan Error
A lot of people might have experienced the same boot error mentioned here in this post.
” CPU Fan Error!
Press F1 to Resume

This could be caused by a few issues.
1. THE FAN IS NOT SPINNING
If this is the case, we have to agree with the BIOS message, and face the sad truth that our fan might be broken, it can also be the fan header on the motherboard itself. To test this, try connecting your fan to another port, if the fan spins, it is probably the connector on the motherboard. If it does not spin, you will probably have to buy a new fan.
2. THE FAN IS SPINNING
If the fan is spinning, and you are certain the fan is connected to the right socket. You should consider the following things:
    (a) If the problem came out of no where, the fan might have collected a lot of dust, making it hard for the fan to get up to speed during boot.
    (b) If the problem started after some meddling with the hardware, the problem could be like (a), but it could have made a change in the BIOS. Eg. Most ASUS motherboards require 600 RPM during boot, for INTEL and 800 RPM for AMD. This could easily have been decreased without you noticing it.

To rectify this problem, you should open your BIOS settings and go to something like a “Hardware Monitor” section, in the BIOS settings, or where
ever, you can find CPU fan speed settings. The CPU Fan Speed might say “N/A”, change this to ignore. Which will make the motherboard ignore the current RPM of the CPU fan during boot.

In some cases you will be able to also Disable the CPU Q-Fan Control. However this might cause your fan to burst with full throttle all the time, and you will have to face a lot of unnecessary noise.

If you have anything to add then please feel free to leave a comment. Thank you for reading.

Google Adsense Approval Tricks & Do’s and Don’ts!

With every coming day the approval of Google Adsense is getting tougher, so I decided to take an insight into all the things you need to know about getting your site or blog approved for the best Adsense available out there.

Minimum steps to get approved by Google Adsense 2013 – Stage 1

  • Register your site or blog a domain name with a .com or a .org or a .net etc.
  • Make sure you have an e-mail that looks like this: admin@yourdomainname.com.
  • Make sure you have atleast 20 posts with original quality content, that is well formatted.
  • Should have atleast 100-200 visitors per day 2 days before submission of your blog(This you can make sure that you drive visitors from Social Networking sites like Facebook, twitter, Google+, etc).
  • Minimum website registration time is 2 days on an average before submission to Google.
  • Don’t include any age restricted content on your site as Google Adsense strictly prohibits doing this.

These steps will make sure you qualify for stage 1 of Adsense. After stage one you will see this once you login to your Adsense account,
“Your application is still being reviewed. You will see only the background of your web page instead of live ads until your account has been fully approved.”

Google Adsense 2013 – Stage 2

  • You will have to create an ad-unit and copy paste the code of the ad-unit that you have created into your website or blog.
  • Google will take a maximum of 2-3 days time to crawl and go through your site after you finish the above step.
  • Make sure you do not ask your users or viewers to click on your ads as google doesn’t support any word stronger than ” Our Sponsors ” for their ads.
  • Make sure your content is oriented to the particular field of interest that your registered domain name suggests.
  • After your account passes the stage 2 then only the Red banner will be removed from your adsense account.

After following the above steps you should have been approved my Google Adsense Program.

Do’s

  • Link your google adsense account to your Youtube account if you have you video to upload for your viewers.
  • Create your google custom search engine for your site, then link your adsense account to it with your publisher-id and display ads above the search results.
  • Using the word ” Sponsors ” above your ads will help upto an extent.
  • If you have any Android Applications then you can link them to your adsense account.
  • Use the same adsense code for your other sites that comply with the Google Adsense Policy.

Dont’s

  • Do not click and do not ask your users or viewers to click on yours ads anywhere on the Internet, as google will disable your account for violating their rules of agreement by banning it.
  • Do not take a picture of your google adsense account with the publisher-id visible and post and share it.
  • Do not post abusive posts or adult content.
  • Do not do anything that violates the License of agreement with google.

 

Quick Adsense Tricks & Why you shouldn’t opt for them in the long run

There are many third-party sites out there that get you can Adsense account in no time, but using that for your website results in a success rate of 0.5% in the long run. The sites are docstoc, bharatstudent, etc. For example, uploading a few documents and sending your account for approval through docstac seems like an easy process to get approved, but that account will only stay alive for a few days. For it to stay alive you will hvae to keep contributing regularly to the site you registered by uploading your documents regularly which is a painful task when you start earning through Adsense.

You can buy Adsense account for as low as 5$ on the Internet through websites like Fiverr.com, where you will just have to type in “adsense account “(the other keywords wont work as I have already tried them). Then select the user you find with the best ranking and highest reputation and recent comments on his work and pay him through paypal. They will guarantee you an approved Adsense account in 1 day as they use the same method that is mentioned above.

AC Circuits: Lead and Lag (How to memorize)

Most of the people I’ve come across have problems memorizing the basics of Electrical Engineering like the phenomenon of Lead and Lag of Current and Voltages in A.C.(Alternate Current) Circuits shown below.

Resistor in AC Circuit

When a Resistor is present in an AC Circuit, then the current is in phase with the voltage and the converse is also true.

Inductor

When an Inductor is present in an AC circuit then Voltage leads current by 90 Degrees.

Capacitor

When a Capacitor is present in an AC circuit then Current leads Voltage by 90 Degrees.

Easy way to memorize the above without any sort of confusion is by recollecting the wordCIVIL every time. CIVIL is a mnemonic here.
Here, we suppose the following
C–>Capacitor
I—>Current
V–>Voltage
I—>Current
L—>Inductor
This implies that in the word CIVIL when C is present, I leads V and when L is present V leads I.

Laptop Battery backup

Battery backup through the generations has been the main parameter people look for when they are going for portable devices, be it Smartphones or Laptops or Notebooks or Ultrabooks or Tablet PC’s. How to understand Laptop’s Battery backup with its given ratings is a questions that is raised by many today. It depends on two ratings mainly. To choose a device that gives you a better backup you need to know these two ratings given below.

Laptop Battery Rating

  • Whr
  • Ah rating


Whr which is actually Wh is nothing but the SI Unit of Power multiplied byTime(hours, minutes & seconds). For a better understanding let us take an example of the Dell Inspiron 15R laptop it has two options wherein one is a 40Whr battery which comes by default with the laptop and the other is a 65Whr 6-Cell Battery which you will have to buy separately. As the number itself suggests the later configuration gives a longer battery life than the former configuration.
The Second part is that batteries are usually rated in Ah(Amphours). For example a 50Ah battery like the general car battery can give 50Amps for an hour or 10Amps for 5hours, etc. By general knowledge you must have understood by now that Ah is not the amount of power supplied by a battery but instead it is the amount of Amps that is supplies by it. Though generally the batteries are given an Ah rating it doesn’t give the power supplied by the battery because,
                                                    Power = Amps x Volts = Watts

Now, we have to understand that Power is the rate of Energy being supplied, so the product of Power and Time gives you the Energy being given by the Battery.
                                                    Watts x time = total amount of energy supplied

Hope that Whr or Wh and Ah rating make more sense now. So, next time you buy yourself a laptop or any other portable device of that sort, do look for the battery rating.
