Change IMEI number



Changing IMEI number is problematic in most countries, because it is in conflict with the law. It is the same as if you wanted to change the serial number of your car. If they catch you doing this you can go to jail.

With older phones it was easier than with new phones because new phones have better security and also one time programable chips. As you can read on some forums, some people change the phones motherboard instead of programing chips.
For changing IMEI you also need professional equipment and a lot of knowledge.

Why to change IMEI number then?

There are different reasons for IMEI changing:
  • to delete tracks about stolen or lost phone (this reason is used mostly )
  • to delete tracks about phone manufacturer and model
  • for researching
  • other reasons

How can manufacturers prevent IMEI changing?

Actualy there is no 100% security just as all other problematic things on the world. Manufacturers can do their best but still you can change chip and reprogram it if you have the same knowledge as manufacturers employees.
Stolen and lost mobile phones
Database

How to check if phone is stolen or lost?

You can call mobile operators in your country and ask for IMEI number or you can also check the database of Stolen, lost and found mobile phones.

AMIBIOS Beep Code Troubleshooting

AMIBIOS is a kind of BIOS manufactured by American Megatrends (AMI). Many popular motherboard manufacturers have integrated AMI's AMIBOS into their systems.
Other motherboard manufacturers have created custom BIOS software based on the AMIBIOS system. The beep codes from an AMIBIOS-based BIOS may be exactly the same as the true AMIBIOS beep codes below or they may vary slightly. You can always reference your motherboard's manual if you think this might be an issue.
Note: AMIBIOS beep codes are short, sound in quick succession, and usually sound immediately after powering on the PC.

1 Beep

A single beep from an AMI based BIOS means there has been a memory refresh timer error. The solution is often to replace the RAM in the computer.
 

2 Beeps

Two beeps means there has been a parity error in base memory. This is an issue with the first 64KB block of memory in your RAM. The solution is usually to replace the memory.

3 Beeps

Three beeps means there has been a base memory read/write test error. Replacing the RAM usually solves this AMI beep code.

4 Beeps

Four beeps means that the motherboard timer is not working properly. A hardware failure with an expansion card or the motherboard itself could be the cause of this beep code.

5 Beeps

Five beeps means there has been a processor error. A damaged expansion card, the CPU, or the motherboard could be prompting this AMI beep code.

6 Beeps

Six beeps means that there has been an 8042 Gate A20 test error. This beep code is usually caused by an expansion card that has failed or the motherboard that is no longer working.

7 Beeps

Seven beeps indicates a general exception error. This AMI beep code could be caused by an expansion card problem, a motherboard hardware issue, or a damaged CPU. Replacing the faulty hardware usually fixes the cause of this beep code.

8 Beeps

Eight beeps means that there has been an error with the display memory. This beep code is usually caused by a faulty video card. Replacing the video card usually clears this up.

9 Beeps

Nine beeps means that there has been an AMIBIOS ROM checksum error. Literally, this would indicate an issue with the BIOS chip on the motherboard. However, since replacing a BIOS chip is sometimes impossible, this AMI BIOS issue is usually corrected by replacing the motherboard.

10 Beeps

Ten beeps means that there has been a CMOS shutdown register read/write error. This beep code is usually caused by a hardware issue with the AMI BIOS chip. A motherboard replacement will usually solve this problem, although it could be caused by a damaged expansion card in rare situations.

11 Beeps

Eleven beeps means that the cache memory test has failed. Some piece of failing hardware is usually to blame for this AMI BIOS beep code.

Not Using an AMI BIOS (AMIBIOS) or Not Sure?

If you're not using an AMI based BIOS then the troubleshooting guides above won't help. To see troubleshooting information for other types of BIOS systems or to figure out what kind of BIOS you have, see my How to Troubleshoot Beep Codes guide.

AwardBIOS Beep Code Troubleshooting

AwardBIOS is a kind of BIOS manufactured by Award, now owned by Phoenix Technologies. Many popular motherboard manufacturers use Award's AwardBIOS in their systems.
Other motherboard manufacturers have created custom BIOS software based on the AwardBIOS system. The beep codes from an AwardBIOS-based BIOS may be the same as the original AwardBIOS beep codes (below) or they may vary a little. You can always reference your motherboard's manual if you to be sure.
Note: AwardBIOS beep codes sound in quick succession and usually immediately after powering on the PC.

1 Short Beep

A single, short beep from an Award based BIOS is actually an "all systems clear" notification. In other words, this is a beep code you want to hear and that you've probably been hearing each time your computer comes on since the day you purchased it. No troubleshooting necessary!

Below are Award BIOS Beep codes that can occur. However, because of the wide variety of different computer manufacturers with this BIOS, the beep codes may vary.
Beep CodeDescription
1 long, 2 short Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information
Any other beep(s) RAM problem.
If any other correctable hardware issues, the BIOS will display a message.

Troubleshooting Your Home Theater System

You've finished setting up your new home theater system and big-screen TV. You turn everything on and...nothing happens. Most consumers, including us "pros", have moments like this. However, this doesn't mean that it is time pull out the cell phone and dial tech support or a repair man just yet.
Before you grab the phone, there are some practical things you can do, and knowledge you can arm yourself with, that may get your system running, or determine what the actual problem is that needs repair.
1. Nothing Turns On
Check all power connections. If you have connected everything into a surge protector, make sure the surge protector itself is turned on and plugged into the wall. Believe it or not, this is one of most common reasons that home theater systems and/or televisions don't power up the first time.


2. No TV Reception
Make sure your antenna, Cable, or Satellite box is connected correctly to your Television. If you have a standard Cable or Satellite box, make sure it is connected to the antenna/cable connection on your TV and that your TV is turned to channel 3 or 4 (depending on area).
If you have a High-definition Cable or Satellite box and an HDTV, make sure you have the box connected to your TV via HDMI, DVI, or Component Video Connections.
In addition, if have your HD Cable or Satellite video and audio outputs routed through a Home Theater Receiver to the TV, make sure your Home Theater Receiver is turned on and set to the appropriate input so that HD-Cable or Satellite signal is routed to the TV.
3. The Picture Quality is Poor
If the picture is grainy or snowy, this could be the result of an incomplete cable connection or bad cable. Try a different cable and see if the result is the same. If you are on Cable, your cable company usually provides free service to check your main cable line for any defects. If using an antenna, change the position of the antenna to get better reception, or try a better antenna.
Another factor is watching analog signals on an HDTV.

4. Improper or No Color
First, check to see if the color is bad across all input sources. If so, make sure you have your Televisions' color settings set to your preferences. If everything looks good except, say, your DVD player, and it is connected to your TV via Component Video Connections (which is composed of three cables - Red, Green, and Blue), make sure they are matched up correctly with the Component (Red, Green, and Blue) connections on your TV. This is a common mistake as it is sometimes hard to distinguish the Green and Blue connectors if the lighting in the connection area is dim.

5. The HDMI Connection Doesn't Work
You have a DVD, Blu-ray Disc player, or other component with HDMI connected to an HDMI-equipped TV, but when you turn them on, you don't get an image on the screen. This occurs sometimes because the source and the TV are not communicating. A successful HDMI connection requires that the source component and TV be able to recognize each other. This is referred to as the "HDMI handshake".
If the "handshake" doesn't work, the HDCP (High-Bandwith Copy-Protection) encryption that is imbedded in the HDMI signal is not being recognized properly by one, or more, of the connected components. Sometimes, when two or more HDMI components are connected in a chain (such as a media player or Blu-ray Disc player through an HDMI-enabled home theater receiver (or HDMI switcher) and then to the TV, this can cause interruption in the HDCP encryption signal.
The solution is usually figuring out a sequential turn-on procedure for your setup - in other words, does the sequence work best when you turn the TV on first, then the receiver or switcher, and then the source device - or vice versa, or something inbetween?
If this solution does not work consistently - check for any announced firmware updates addressing "HDMI handshake" issues with your components.
For more tips on HDMI connection problems, check out my article: How To Troubleshoot HDMI Connection Problems
 
6. The Surround Sound Doesn't Seem Right
The first thing to check: Is the DVD, TV program, or other programming source in surround sound? Next, check all speaker connections and make sure they are correct, according to the channel and polarity.
The next thing to check is how you have the DVD player, Cable, or Satellite box connected to your Home Theater Receiver. To access Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound, you need to have either a Digital Optical, Digital Coaxial, or 5.1 channel analog connection going from the source component to the Home Theater Receiver. Only these connections are able to transfer a Dolby Digital or DTS-encoded soundtrack.
If you have RCA analog stereo cables connected from a DVD Player, or other source component, connected to a Home Theater Receiver, the only way to access surround sound is with Dolby Prologic II, IIx, or DTS Neo:6 settings, if available. These processing schemes extract surround sound from any two-channel audio source, including CDs, Cassette Tapes, and Vinyl Records. When using this method with DVDs, it isn't the same as a true Dolby Digital/DTS signal you would get from digital or 5.1 channel analog audio connections, but it is more immersive than a two-channel result.
Another thing to remember is that even with true surround sound material, surround sound is not present at all times. During periods of mainly dialog, most sound comes from the center speaker only, with ambient sounds coming from the rest of the speakers. As the action on the screen gets more complicated, such as explosions, crowds, etc... or when the music soundtrack becomes more a part of the film, you will notice more sound coming from the side and/or rear speakers.
Also, all newer Home Theater Receivers offer an option to balance the sound coming from your speakers, which will optimize the surround sound experience. Using the setup menu on many Home Theater Receivers, the user can set speaker distance, speaker size, and speaker channel level in relation to the listening position.

How to Reset iPod nano

Even though it doesn't look much like a desktop or laptop, the iPod nano is essentially a small computer. And, just like a regular computer, sometimes it needs to be restarted. If you've got a frozen iPod nano that isn't responding to clicks, it probably needs a restart the same way a desktop computer would. Luckily, it's easy to reset an iPod nano. Here’s how.
NOTE: This works for the following models:
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Less than 1 Minute

Here's How:

  1. NOTE: First make sure that your iPod's hold button isn't on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the iPod nano that you can move to "lock" the iPod's buttons. If it's turned on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod nano and a lock icon on its screen. This could be causing your nano not to respond to clicks.
    If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem. If it doesn't, do the following:
  2. Slide the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  3. Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Press them for 6-10 seconds. This should reset the iPod nano. You'll know the nano is restarting when the screen darkens and then the Apple logo appears.
  4. If this doesn't work the first time, repeat the steps and try resetting the nano again.
  5. If a second or third reset doesn't solve your problem, try plugging your iPod nano into a power source (your computer or wall outlet) and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.
  6. If after all this, your nano still doesn't work, you may have a bigger problem, and ought to contact Apple to get more help.

How To Reset/Restart a Frozen iPod Video

Hardly anything can be as annoying or potentially frightening as a frozen iPod video that stops responding to clicks. But don't worry - your iPod is probably fine. It just needs to be restarted. Luckily, resetting a frozen iPod video is pretty easy. Here’s how you do it.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Less than 1 Minute

Here's How:

  1. NOTE: First make sure that your iPod’s hold button isn’t on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the iPod video that you can move to “lock” the iPod’s buttons. If this is on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod video and a lock icon on the iPod’s screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.
  2. If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following:
    Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  3. Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod video. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.
  4. If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat the steps.
  5. If this doesn’t work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.
  6. If this doesn’t work, you may have a bigger problem.

At nine millimeters, the GoFlex Slim is the thinnest external hard drive on the world. Its 320-gigabyte drive, borrowed from ultra portable laptops, is encased in durable aluminum.

Safer Saw (Worx JawSaw, From $120)



The JawSaw mini electric chainsaw tears through branches of up to four inches thick. Its jaw-shaped frame lets you hold wood firmly in place and shields your hands from potential accidents.

Light Foot (Adidas adiZero Crazy Light, $130)



In these sneaks, lightness is not at odds with support. At 9.8 ounces, Adidas’s kicks are the trimmest basketball shoes available. To provide ample ankle support, a one-millimeter-thin nylon upper is bonded to an equally thin, reinforced leather backing.

Gentle Glow (Antec Soundscience Bias Lighting Halo 6 LED kit, $13)



To combat the eyestrain that happens when your monitor is brighter than the room, Antec mounts six LEDs to the back of your screen. The result is an eye-relaxing halo.

Roundabout (Kogeto Dot, $100)



Slide the Dot lens over your iPhone 4 camera and set it down on a table to shoot 360-degree video panoramas. The optical element includes curved plastic and reflects the entire scene down into the image sensor. An app recomposes the footage into a circular scene.

iPencil (Wacom Bamboo Stylus, $30)



Wacom’s Bamboo stylus, 25 percent thinner than other touch screen styluses, offers minute control over your iPad or tablet doodles. Its conductive rubber tip compresses slightly on the screen, giving it a more natural pen-to-paper feeling.

Speed Racer (Air Hogs Hyperactive, $50)



The fastest palm-sized remote-controlled car, this four-wheeler zips around at 20 mph (the scale equivalent of about 600 mph). The racer’s motor produces so much torque that it can spiral up a 10-foot cylinder.

Computer Capture (Razer Hydra, $140)



The first motion controller for PC gamers may be more accurate than a Wiimote or PlayStation Move. The Hydra’s base emits a magnetic field, which it uses to identify where the wand is and how it’s moving across six axes.

Green Gazer (Bushnell Hybrid Golf Rangefinder, $500)



Plan shots without seeing the flag. Bushnell’s laser rangefinder is the first to come with 16,000 golf courses preloaded, so its GPS lets you see past dogleg curves. Use the laser to measure the distance between you and a bunker.

Hard Shell (Casio G’zOne Commando, $200)



Casio’s Android smartphone has the ├╝ber-durability of a G-Shock watch. Its rubberized shell is reinforced with magnesium alloy to withstand drops, while O-rings seal seams and ports, such as the headphone jack, from dust and water.
