How to charge Mobile without a Charger

How to charge Mobile without a Charger

switch off Ur mobile, Remove battery, Fold a paper and keep it in such a way that it hides the center pin of the phone and then put the battery in. Now switch on. the display will say insert sim, next it will restart, then U pull the paper in the center pin..
Now the charge is full....
The concept is that there is a battery inbuilt in the phone and when we do this the centre pin is grounded and the full charge of the internal battery is transferred to the normal battery so We get full charge..
Next time when we charge, we need to charge for a long time, Including for the internal battery...

Its 100% tested, safe and working...


How to Select Motherboard

the following advises are based on many years of experience. They are provided as a free service to our customers and visitors. However, Computer Warehouse is not responsible for any damage as a result of following any of these guides.

If you are building a new system we highly recommend going with a CPU and the motherboard that is of current technology such as, the AMD Athlon 64 or the Intel Pentium 4 (LGA775), in order to maintain an upgrade path. Once you know what form factor you are going to use you must make sure that the motherboard you are going to use supports the bus speed of your processor or higher. For instance, if you were buying an Intel Pentium 4 processor with a 533MHz bus it doesn’t make sense to buy a motherboard that only supports a max bus speed of 400MHz.

The reliability of motherboard as measured by return rates is roughly correlated with the price you pay. As a rule of thumb: the higher the price the better the reliability. We suspect that the manufacturers who have higher profit margins do more extensive testing and quality control before shipping. Therefore, we suggest that you buy a motherboard of the highest price your budget can afford. It is not easy to replace a motherboard, even for professional technicians. Besides, if the motherboard is bad, your whole system is likely to be in jeopardy.

On the other hand, motherboards do not have any moving, consumable parts. If they go bad, most often they do so within a month. If you can take your chances and are willing to learn how to replace a motherboard, the less expensive motherboards are just fine for budget minded buyers.

Buy current but proven technology. Purchasing yesterday’s technology can mean greater difficulty or limitation in future upgrades. For example, it doesn’t make sense to buy a Socket 478 motherboard anymore, since Intel stopped making Socket 478 processors when they reached the 2.4GHz speed. Socket 478 processors are now starting to become rare and their performance is lacking compare to newer Socket LGA 775 versions.

WARNING: Changing a motherboard from one type to another with different BIOS/chipset usually requires reinstallation of your operating system, particularly under Windows 9x. This happens because Windows 9x is designed to be “smart” enough to recognize some hardware; however, once it is set you can’t change it easily. This can be an upgrade nightmare if you are not prepared for it. Be prepared to do a full operating system install/re-install when you change a motherboard!

Regarding chipsets: The chipset is what makes your motherboard work. Different chipsets support different things, and have different integrated features. Chipset companies are usually very competitive, especially third party ones such as nVIDIA, VIA and SiS. In general the newer a chipset is for a given series of processors, the better the performance will be. However, the first few motherboards with a brand new chipset are more likely to have problems then motherboards produced later on. Often these sorts of problems are cleared up through patches, bios updates, and other fixes but it can be disappointing to get the latest, hottest new motherboard on the market and then find out it doesn’t like part x due to a bios problem after you install the board. The saying goes: “If you stay on bleeding edge, then you are likely to bleed.” The best thing to do is to research the motherboard you are interested in at the manufacturer’s website and at popular review website. It usually isn’t a good sign if the motherboard manufacturer does not have at least one bios update available. Also, motherboard manufacturers learn from the mistakes of their rivals and from their own previous mistakes. The third or fourth motherboard that hits the market using a new chipset is less likely to have problems than the first one to hit the market.

To integrate or not to integrate? Integration is a current industry trend. It saves cost and space to integrate as many components onto the motherboard as possible such as video, audio, modem, and network card. Integrated motherboards tend to have limitations on future upgrade ability and expandability. It is not recommended for power users. It may however serve first time and budget-minded buyers and as a second machine as well. The reliability of integrated motherboards have improved significantly in recent years, although the chances for something to go wrong on an integrated motherboard is still higher than a non-integrated one.

Convenience factor: If you are familiar with or have a large installation base with one brand/model of motherboard, staying with the same brand may help you minimize the number of manuals to keep. If nothing else, you want to keep your motherboard manual for as long as possible in the event of a problem with the manufacturer. Motherboard manufacturers now usually offer downloadable versions of their manuals online in order to assists their customers and to provide a way to correct errata. However, some manufacturers have been known to change the features on a motherboard without changing motherboard model. This creates problems later on if you have to download a manual, as the motherboard you have may be different than the revised one that manual is meant for.

If volume matters to you, guess who is by far the number one motherboard manufacturer in sales? Intel. Their volume comes mainly from OEM channels! Asus and Gigabytes/MSI are in second and third places.

DNS Tips and Tweaks

DNS Tips and Tweaks

Trying to find the fastest DNS for your computer? A friend of mine discovered the method on how to find the fastest DNS for a computer for a faster internet experience.

Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) explains that the Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It serves as the "phone book" for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames into IP addresses.

The fastest DNS is essential for users to be able to browse websites and blogs effectively and error-free.

Here's how to find the fastest DNS for your computer.

* Download namebench:
- namebench is a free, open-source bench mark utility that hunts down the fastest DNS servers available for your computer to use.
- namebench runs on Mac OS X, Windows, and UNIX, and is available with a graphical user interface as well as a command-line interface.

Before You Install This You Must Update Your Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) In Order to Run It!
Update here:
* Double click the downloaded executable file to extract namebench. No worries at all
- It's clean having scanned it with Eset NOD32;
- It's standalone, does not modify the operating system in any way.

* In the namebench GUI, Click 'Start Benchmark'.

The recommendations will be displayed once all servers have been tested.

Tutorial How To Ripping 300MB MKV files from DVD

Tutorial How To Ripping 300MB MKV files from DVD
Tutorial How To Ripping 300MB MKV files from DVD
This guide is splitted into following parts:

1.) Setting up Encoder.
2.) Encoding.
3.) Editing of Output file

1.) Setting up Encoder

You Must Have Following 5 Files First

(a) Megui.

(b) Avisynth.
(c) Profiles.
(d) Nero AAC Codec.
(e) Mkvtoolnix

After downloading the above files follow these steps:

1. Install Megui, Avisynth and Mkvtoolnix.
2. Copy all 3 Nero AAC files to the Megui directory
By Default - "C:\Program Files\megui"
3. Run Megui and update it.
4. Close Megui.
5. Copy the "allprofiles" folder and paste it in Megui directory
By Default - "C:\Program Files\megui". Replace the allprofiles folder with new one.
6. Now run Megui and we are ready to encode some movies.
2.) Encoding

1. Run Megui and click file-->open and browse to the source video file.
2. Wait few seconds and then avisynth will open with video previewer (see images below).
3. Enter the desired output resolution (must be mod 16)*
*mod 16 resolution - Both height and width pixels must be completely divisible be 16. Example - Here 720x352 resolution is used and 720/16 gives remainder as 0 and also 352/16 gives rem. 0 so that means it's a mod 16 resolution.
4. You can crop screen if u see black borders (in our case we don't need it).
5. Click Save and you will be returned back to megui.
6. In video section select one video profile. For best result use "x264: HQ-Slow" or "x264: Unresteicted 2pass HQ".
7. Select file format as MKV.
8. In audio section select audio profile"Nero AAC: NDAAC-HE-64kbs".
9. Click config and check the "adaptive bitrate" and set it to @35kbps. You can also use 40kbps but 35kbps works fine for me.
10. Click "Auto Encode" and a new window will apppear.
11. Select conatiner as "MKV" and enter "average bitrate" as per the desired output file size (Remember 30minutes = 100mb). When done click "Queue".
12. Now click "Queue" tab at top of the encoder and click start
13. Now comes the most difficult part which is to wait. Encoding process has now begun so be patient. Time taken in encoding depends on many factors such as your pc's config., source's resolution, output file's resolution, o/p file size etc. On my pc a normal dvdrip takes an average time of 4-5 hours.


In this section I will tell you how to:

(a) Add or remove subtitles.
(b) Making samples/splitting a file.
(c) Join files.
(d) How to sync. an mkv file.

but before that run mkvmerge.

(a) Add or remove subtitles.

1. Click "add" button to add a video file.
2. Now simply drag the subtitle file to the "tracks" box in mkvmerge or click the add button to add sutitle file.
3. Select output folder.
4. Click "start muxing".


1. Add your file.
2. Uncheck the subtitle file from the "tracks" box.
3. Select output folder.
4. Click "start muxing".

(b) Making samples/splitting a file
1.       Add the file that you want to split.
2. Now click "Global" tab at the top of the mkvmerge.
3. Tick the "enable splitting" option and choose the way* you want to split it.
*Take the cursor above each box for more info about it.

(c) Join files

Now if you want to join two or more splitted files into a single file then add the first part of file and then click "append" to add 2nd part and so on you can append a no. of files. Select o/p folder and click "start muxung".

(d) How to sync. an mkv file.

One common problem that arises after encoding a movie is that sometimes we gets file at output which is a bit out of sync. So, we can make it in sync using mkvmerge.
2.       Suppose that in our movie the sound is lagging beind video with duration 300ms. Then,
1. Add your file.
2. In "track" box click on video file and then "Format specific options". In "Delay (in ms)" enter 150.
3. Now in "track" box click on audio file and then "Format specific options". In "Delay (in ms)" enter -150.
4. Select o/p folder and click"start muxing"

Similarly, if video is lagging behind audio then in that case we would use -ve value for video file and +ve value for audio file.

This is how process goes:
Note: This guide has been tested for as per use on windows xp 32 bit and works. You may face some problems if you are using some other operating system. PLZ give your feedbacks about this tutorial and if you note some mistake then plz reply with it here.

Edit 1: If you have codec issues, remove any codecs you have installed and use the k-lite codec pack.
