MacBook Pro Freeze after RAM upgrade

By |2011-08-21T14:06:20+01:00August 21st, 2011|Mac, Technology|

My MacBook Pro came with 4GB of RAM, and 320GB of disk drive. The ThunderBolt technology is also available on my MacBook Pro. I decided recently to upgrade the RAM so it can run smoother with heavy softwares.

Why upgrade MacBook’s RAM?

The main reason to upgrade is that  4GB RAM is not enough on a MacBook Pro if you run a virtual machine with Windows and want to do an RAM intensive work with your Mac. With a total of 8GB RAM, the MacBook Pro runs very smooth, even when running a virtual machine with 1.5GB RAM allocated to Windows 7.

I upgraded my MacBook Pro (early 2011) RAM from 4GB with 2 new CORSAIR 4GB modules, so a total of 8GB  of RAM. I recommend you upgrade […]

Entretien Ordinateur Portable

Il y a quelque jours, j’ai reçu un ordinateur portable Gericom Overdose 1360e pour maintenance, mis à jour et réparation. Première étape consistait a augmenter la RAM, donc j’ai remplacer la RAM par une barrette de 1Go DDR Sodimm. L’entretien du Windows a été un peu long, car après l’installation de Service Pack 3 sur Windows XP Édition Familiale, il a fallut Défragmenter le disque dure…


FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA

Un erreur rencontré, était par rapport a la mémoire virtuelle. L’erreur a apparue sur un écran bleu. La solution est de vérifier l’état du fichier PAGEFILE.SYS . Il faut que la taille du fichier PAGEFILE.SYS , soit au moins 1.5 fois la RAM installée. Ceci est a définir dans:gericom_overdose_1360

Windows 7 not booting?

Microsoft Windows 7

Windows 7 is the latest Microsoft’s operating system. It’s something made out of Windows XP and Windows Vista. I found it a stable system and the visual effects are pretty cool. Something I do not really appreciate is the User Account Control which pops up everytime you make a system related operation. I disabled the UAC at the first startup.


Windows 7 was released first to computer manufacturers and leaked on the internet. Today, a retail version is available to everyone.


There are a lot of articles on the internet written about the features of Windows 7, its advantages and disadvantages. Lots of webhsites provide information on how to download and/or activate Windows 7. I would strongly recommend you buy a genuine version of Microsoft […]

Invite de commande – Windows XP

“Un interpréteur de commandes, parfois désigné par l’anglicisme shell, est un programme faisant partie des composants de base d’un système d’exploitation, le Command-line interface (CLI) (ou invite de commandes).

C’est le mode de contrôle fondamental d’un ordinateur. Ce dernier prend ses données d’entrées en ligne de commande, qui sont transmises à l’interpréteur en mode interactif.

Son rôle est de traiter les commandes tapées au clavier par l’utilisateur. Ces commandes, une fois interprétées, auront pour effet de réaliser telle ou telle tâche d’administration, ou bien de lancer l’exécution d’un logiciel.

L’invite elle-même consiste en quelques caractères, en début de ligne (généralement, le nom de compte de l’utilisateur, et/ou l’unité logique par défaut, et/ou le chemin par défaut, et/ou date, …), se terminant par un caractère bien connu (souvent « ] » ou « […]

Use your mobile phone as a wireless webcam

Yes! It’s very possible to have a wireless webcam if you have a mobile phone with a camera and a bluetooth connection.


Having a bulky USB webcam with that annoying USB cable when you are on the go, with your laptop, is not always the best thing to happen to you. That’s when a wireless webcam comes in handy. wireless webcam


Talking about wireless webcams, if you’ve ever thought of it, and searched about, you know that they cost a minimum of 100 USD, and are most of the time bulky, need power supply, and are relying on a network.


Now, you can have a good wireless webcam almost for free if you’ve got a mobile […]

About Conficker:

On October 23, 2008, Microsoft released a critical security update, MS08-067, to resolve a vulnerability in the Server service of Windows that, at the time of release, was facing targeted, limited attack. The vulnerability could allow an anonymous attacker to successfully take full control of a vulnerable system through a network-based attack, the sort of vectors typically associated with network “worms.” Since the release of MS08-067, the Microsoft Malware Protection Center (MMPC) has identified two variants of Win32/Conficker in the wild to date:

Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare


Just Now I finished Call of Duty 4 -Modern Warfare game! It’s awesome, but the huge drawback is that the game is very SHORT!! There’s a lot of actions and graphics in-built which is really great, and the war stories even if they’re fictious, they can be of our days, I mean it’s a game in the present, not in world war period or a futuristic kinda war. I liked this game mostly because the movements and weapons and also the environment is close to reality.

For those of you who didn’t know about this game, first of all check if you can run it, here’s Call of Duty 4 minimum and also […]
