Windows 11 vs. Windows 10: What you need to know

Windows 11, the first major update to the Windows platform since Windows 10 launch in 2015, is only months away. The operating system offers new interface and several features that bring Windows into a post-2020 world with more people working between their homes and the office.

For existing Windows 10 users, Windows 11 will be available as a free upgrade around the 2021 holiday season or before, so long as your computer is compatible. (Find out if your PC will work with Windows 11 here.) And if you still need to upgrade to Windows 10, don’t worry — a free Windows 10 download trick still works for many people.

Android app integration

Android apps will be coming to Windows 11, and installable from within the new Microsoft Store, via the Amazon Appstore. (There were a couple of ways to access Android apps on Windows 10, including if you had a Samsung Galaxy phone, but this will make it native.) This is something Windows users have been waiting for for years, and marks another move toward the merging of mobile and laptop devices.

Better virtual desktop support

Windows 11 will let you set up virtual desktops in a way that’s more similar to Macs, toggling between multiple desktops at once for personal, work, school or gaming use. In Windows 10, this was harder to set up and use.

Easier transition from monitor to laptop

The new OS includes features called Snap Groups and Snap Layouts — collections of the apps you’re using at once that sit in the taskbar, and can come up or be minimized at the same time for easier task switching. They also let you plug and unplug from a monitor more easily, without losing where your open windows are located.

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?

What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?
computer-over-heating
Sometime when you are working on your laptop or desktop; very random noises start coming from hard drives. Like buzzing noise, grinding noise, or clicking noise coming from hard drives. This can be very irritating and you may start wondering about the reason for the hard drive noise. There may be some other random type of noises coming from your drive.
Clicking Noise from Hard Drive
Head Stuck Noise from Hard Drive
What are the Reasons for Hard Drive Grinding Noise?

There are two possible reasons for grinding noise coming from Hard Drive or the computer. Let’s look at each:

Reason 1: Firstly, the buzzing or grinding noise could be because of the CPU FAN. FAN is embedded to cool down the heated system and prevent overheating damages. There are computers designed to run all the fans simultaneously and at the maximum speed initially. This is to check if the fans are working properly and to remove the accumulated dust. The speed of one fan is not strong enough to remove the dust; hence we need multiple fans to operate simultaneously.

If there is something that obstructs the normal functioning of these fans in the PCs. It could be their blades hitting each other as they do not necessarily spin at an even pace. Therefore, resulting in a grinding noise. If this is the reason, you can easily detect it. It requires you just to open your computer and check the blades of the fans, whether or not they hit each other when in the running mode.

Reason 2: Secondly, it could be the grinding noise from the hard disk. In fact, this indicates something bad or negative, and you should be worried about this. The reason being, severe internal damage is what may follow. To be specific, the grinding noise from the HDD is a symptom of the hard drive failure in the future. This indicates that components in the hard drive have turned faulty.

Effects of Hard Disk Drive Failure

If the HDD in your computer fails, all the data stored on it becomes inaccessible or is lost. This indeed is a big setback. Nothing can be worse than losing access to all your important data. Therefore, you should fix the hard drive grinding noise issue before it leads to complete hard drive failure. A hard drive failure will result in a data loss situation. Even if you have a failed hard disk, you should take the necessary steps to recover the lost or inaccessible HDD data.

Steps Towards Hard Drive Recovery When it Started Making Weird Noise

Now that you are aware of the effects of a hard disk buzzing or grinding noise. Let’s now look at the methods to recover the lost data from hard drive:

1: Backup and restore all your hard drive data – Soon after you detect that the grinding noise is from the hard disk of your computer, the first and foremost step that you should take is getting a backup of all your data. You can take backup on any external or removable media storage. This backup file is of great use to restore data when the hard drive fails.

2: Use Hard Drive Recovery Software – Using quality and proven Hard Drive recovery software is another way to regain all lost data. You can employ this method of using data recovery software in several conditions. e.g.

Deleted data
Lost backup data from an external drive
Corrupted data
Virus-infected data

Note: Data recovery software only works on working hard drive. So you can use DIY software before your hard drive becomes dead due to physical damage.

3: Go for Hard Drive Recovery Service – Another way to recover data from failed hard disk is via professional Hard Drive recovery services from a reputed data recovery service provider. The one that you choose must guarantee that you should get back your complete lost data. PC Expert Services Data Recovery is the professional data recovery service provider in Orange County. We have service Centers spread across the country and caters to all forms of Data Recovery – Hard Drive Recovery, RAID Recovery, Server Recovery, SSD Recovery, File Recovery, Email Recovery, SD Card Recovery etc.

Conclusion

As stated above in the blog, restoring the backup is one of the cheapest and effective ways to recover data during instances of HDD failure. However, if you have a failed backup or do not have the backup at all. You can opt for software in the comfort of your home or office. You can use data recovery software for your Windows and Mac provided your hard disk is detecting. If that is not the case, then contact PC Expert Services for professional assistance.

SONY REPORTEDLY WARNED THAT PS5 SHORTAGES MAY CONTINUE UNTIL 2022

SONY REPORTEDLY WARNED THAT PS5 SHORTAGES MAY CONTINUE UNTIL 2022

SONY REPORTEDLY WARNED THAT PS5 SHORTAGES MAY CONTINUE UNTIL 2022

Sony is selling a lot of PlayStation 5s, but it may be some time before the console hits its true sales potential. The company has reportedly warned analysts that the PS5 will remain in short supply all the way through 2022, hindering future buyers and its own potential sales, according to a Bloomberg report.

Sony sold 7.8 million units through March 31 and projects it will sell around 14.8 million by the end of its current fiscal year. Sky-high demand means it could sell more, but can’t keep up with supply due to shortages of chips and other components. And like other industries that depend on semiconductors, Sony can’t provide an estimate for when that situation will improve.

“I don’t think demand is calming down this year and even if we secure a lot more devices and produce many more units of the PlayStation 5 next year, our supply wouldn’t be able to catch up with demand,” CFO Hiroki Totoki reportedly told the analysts.

Sony isn’t the only console maker with supply problems, as Nintendo also warned about component shortages last week despite a blockbuster sales quarter. For Sony, the situation isn’t ideal as it can’t to fully capitalize on the successful launch of the PS5 while buyers are still excited. On top of that, with the pandemic rules slowly easing, folks may not be stuck at home with nothing else to do.

Cryptocurrency Miners Are Getting a New Custom 5nm Chip

Cryptocurrency Miners Are Getting a New Custom 5nm Chip

Cryptocurrency Miners Are Getting a New Custom 5nm Chip

Bitmain has placed an order with TSMC for a 5nm part using its latest N5 fabrication process.

Cryptocurrency mining has sparked huge demand for the latest graphics cards, but anyone really serious about mining crypto invests in application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs). These power-hungry compute rigs are designed specifically for the resource-intensive task, and miners are set to get a new, and more efficient 5nm ASIC option courtesy of Bitmain and TSMC.

As Tom’s Hardware reports, China’s Bitmain Technology Holding Company, which claims to hold a 75% share of the global ASIC market, is thought to have placed an order with chipmaker TSMC to take advantage of the company’s N5 fabrication process (5nm). This is the process already being used by Apple for its 5nm A14 chipset found in the latest iPhones, but also for the M1 chip at the heart of the latest Macs.

DigiTimes says production of the new chip is set to start in the third quarter. There’s no details yet on specifically what Bitmain’s chip and subsequent new ASIC model will be capable of, but the company’s existing (and currently sold out) Antminer S19j ASIC achieves a 90TH/s hashrate using its last generation of custom processor. It does draw 3,100 Watts of power, costs over $5,000, and weighs 14.2kg, in order to achieve such a high rate, though.

While news of a new ASIC using the most advanced 5nm fabrication process available might be music to the ears of serious cryptocurrency miners, it’s sure to have device makers worried. Chip manufacturing is already under huge pressure to meet demand, and TSMC is facing a serious water shortage in Taiwan on top of that. Bitmain’s order only adds to the pressure, but TSMC clearly wouldn’t agree to production if it didn’t think it had the spare capacity. Anyone attempting to place new chip orders in the future may end up with a different outcome, though.

Snapchat Announces New Snap Originals and a Creator Marketplace

Snapchat Announces New Snap Originals and a Creator Marketplace

Snapchat Announces New Snap Originals and a Creator Marketplace

The marketplace will allow creators and businesses to easily work together through advertising and marketing.

Spent lockdown burning through everything video streaming services have to offer? Looking to expand your mind even further? Check out the new slate of Snap Originals, set to debut this year.

“Made-for-mobile shows started on Snapchat,” the company wrote in a blog announcement, boasting a library of more than 128 original series and an impressive Gen Z following.

“Our new slate is a reflection of our community—what they care about, and the stories and personalities they love,” the blog said. “From shining a light on social issues and racial injustice, to honest conversations on mental health, to the impacts of climate change—our shows speak to the issues most important to the Snapchat Generation.”

Look for unscripted stories featuring Megan Thee Stallion (with her celebrity friends and their pets), Charlie and Dixie D’Amelio, and LGBT icon Manny MUA; a bunch of teen docuseries; a futuristic YA drama; and a sketch comedy show starring you.

More content offerings means more monetization opportunities. Enter the Creator Marketplace, where businesses can partner with mobile creators “in a scaled and seamless way.” Opening later this month for all businesses to partner with a select group of AR creators through 2021, the forum will expand next year to include all Snap creators.
“For businesses, this is a new opportunity to leverage the creativity and expertise of Snap creators—who know the Snapchat Generation best—to drive ROI [return on investment] for Snapchat marketing activity,” the blog said. “For creators, it opens the door to greater partnership opportunities with all kinds of brands so that creators can build their own business on Snapchat.”
