Finding laptop motherboard part number

Just a quick tip for anyone that's replacing a laptop motherboard and looking for the part number.

Most manufactures hide the motherboard part number under the ram, just remove the ram sticks and you should see something like the picture below.

Where it says MB, that's short for motherboard and after that is the part number, so in this example it's K000093080.

So you don't even have to take the whole thing apart to get to the part number.

How to clear bios on Toshiba Satellite L555

If you run into a issue where you need to clear out the bios on a Satellite L555 laptop, here are the steps.

First remove the panel from the back where the ram is. Then remove the ram stick(s) out as well. After you have removed the ram, there will be a sticker with serial part numbers, remove the sticker.

In the image below, you'll see 'NSWAA' right above the last A, will be JCMOS. This is the jumper CMOS pins, the two clear copper pads there. If you use a paper clip to join the two pads together when you power on the laptop, this will reset the CMOS (aka BIOS).

After you have done this, put back the sticker, re-install the ram and put back on the cover.

This will reset the BIOS to default and also will remove the bios password if one is set.

Raspberry Pi

Just got my Raspberry Pi Model B in from element14.com can't wait to play around with this little device later this week.

I'll start off by setting up a XBMC image from Raspbmc.com and see how will it works as a media center hooked up to my TV. It could replace my HTPC that I made at the end of last year using a APU from AMD.

At that cost of $35 I'll have to think about buying another one if it goes well. Also just a thought, but I think we'll see a price drop in Arduino boards, so keep a eye out for that.

Nexus 7 Battery

The Nexus 7 battery life is amazing! After having the device for a week and using it for reading comics, emails, news articles, Reddit, playing games, videos, trying tons of new apps and using the Jelly Bean's amazing Google Now feature.

I can say without a doubt the battery life on the Nexus 7 is impressive! The pictures below are of the battery after two days, most of the use in the last two days are stand by. With the activity being background apps syncing using the battery, even tho I've played a few stages of Cut the Rope and Foozle.

Out of all the tablets I've used/own (10 used at work for testing app development and 6 other tablets I own, including the iPad2) the Nexus 7 is by far the best tablet for cost, specs and battery hands down. Google and ASUS have made a tablet that will make Amazon and Barnes & Noble have to up their game if they want consumers to buy their tablet over the Nexus 7.

The other huge bonus with the Nexus 7, is Google lets anyone unlock the bootloader, making rooting the device extremely easy to do. Something I would like to see every Android device have as a standard option in the future.

The only thing that could make the Nexus 7 tablet even better would be a plus model, with included features like micro SD slot, rear camera for taking pictures/videos and data option for 3G/4G. Which I think we'll see in the second generation of the Nexus 7 at maybe the next Google I/O. I would pay another $150 for those features as it would make this already amazing tablet out of this world!

As a side note, Apple (which I am not a big fan of) is going to have to look at getting into this 7 inch tablet market at the same or close price. Because I think we'll see a lot of consumers looking at the 7 inch tablet as the prefect portable tablet device.

Google buys Sparrow

Sparrow a well known app on the Apple side of devices, was just bought by Google for around 25 million. A app popular for it's unique email client experience will now join the Google family.

Google has been slowly buying other iOS apps up, like Quickoffice, Clever Sense, ...

This could very well mean that Android will see a version of the amazing email client app soon.

#Google   #sparrow   #Android   #iOS   #email

Nexus 7 Unboxing Pics

UPS dropped off my Nexus 7 yesterday, the same day I got the email from Google that it had shipped. I find it a bit funny that the shipping email also happens to be the same day I get the device.

I took a picture of the back with a dime so everyone can see the scale for the leather like backing golf holes. It has a nice grip to it without having the huge amount of plastic backing the Kindle Fire has.

Also wanted to point out that the NFC works only at the top of the device, look at the picture of the back with the cover on it.

The screen is impressing with either HD video or reading text.

After I use the device a bit more, I'll compare it to the Kindle Fire.

Windows 8 Surface

Yep on day one, I'm already getting errors on my new Windows 8 Surface tablet.

Still think Microsoft should have waited a bit more before releasing it. The preview was full of bugs and already the final release also has issues.

Now if Microsoft releases the RT api calls they are holding off on, more info -> http://goo.gl/gKTK1

Then maybe I could get Chrome installed on this and be ok with it. Or hope someone at XDA can hack it to install either Android or ChromeOS on it. Damn I should have bought a ChromeBook instead.

My sis and her kids are out doing that right now too.

Ooo that's cool, I'd like to hear about the new stuff your learning some time.

Yea it's a odd bug, but what's funny is it doesn't even render completely.

Windows 8 Tablet at $199?

So right now I'm just saying this is a rumor only because the source is a anonymous person. But if this is true, then Microsoft is going to give Apple a run for it's money.

At $199 I know I wouldn't think twice about buying one. The market could switch from Apple and Android to Microsoft and Android as the main tablets.

I know I'm looking forward to the day Apple drops down a bit, stop suing everyone and pay your workers well too!

But we'll see on Oct. 26th if this price is real or not.
