Branding Computer (Windows XP)

.
6 comments

             Today, I'm going to make some very cool modifications to my computer. I am sharing with you how we can make our experience with Windows XP a whole lot easier and more fun too!
Well, start off with the system properties window. By default, a computer's system properties windows look like this:
To access that, right click on the My Computer icon on your desktop and select Properties.Some of us may have a manufacturer logo below the Windows logo. If so, how would you like to add your own logo and some text there
Like this:

Let start:
1.) First, an image(logo) must be created to place there. For that, I am using Microsoft's Paint program, which is included on all Windows computers. To access that, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories and choose Paint. OR Go to run type "pbrush" without quote.
2.) The image can be no larger than 180x115 pixels, we need to resize the canvas. To do so, go up to Image and select Attributes. In the box that appears, select Pixels as the measurement unit and enter in the correct units, shown once again below. Then click OK.

3.) Now, go up to File, Save As and save the file in the directory of C:\Windows\System32 with the name of oemlogo.bmp *must be same.
4.) Now, go up to File, Save As and save the file in the directory of C:\Windows\System32 with the name of "oemlogo.bmp".

That does it for the logo. Now, let's move on to entering the text. We will be using Notepad for this part. Now, we are making another required file. Lets start!!!


1.) Get to Notepad by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Notepad.

2.) Next, copy and paste the information below into the text area. You won't want it to be exactly the same as mine (there's more on that below), but go ahead and copy and paste it all first. Then, once you have it in Notepad, you can change everything to read what you want. That way, you'll know for sure that you have the basics entered in correctly.

[General]
Manufacturer=Saano Vai
Model=Dell Inspiron 8100
[Support Information]
Line1=This PC was created
Line2=by Saano Vai
Line3=Enjoy using it!
Line4=****visit www.saanotech.blogspot.com****


3.) After you have that pasted in, replace everything after the equal signs (=) with your own information. You can add more lines at the end too, but be sure to use the same format as I did.

4.) Once you have that the way you want it, go up to File and choose Save As. Again, save the file in the directory of C:\Windows\System32, but this time, under the name of oeminfo.ini. Also, be sure to change the file type to All Files instead of Text Document.

If you did this correctly, the next time you check your system properties, your new information should be there. Be sure to click the Support Information link to see your custom message.
Enjoy.....

What do all those error codes (like 404) mean?

.
0 comments

It happens to all of us. We're surfing along, and up comes an error. What do all those error codes mean? Here's a quick rundown of the most common:

400 - Bad Request
                   We probably typed in a URL wrong, the server has no clue what we're looking for, or we aren't allowed to have access. Usually, it's a matter of the URL being typing in wrong. Maybe we mixed upper and lowercase letters or something.

401 - Unauthorized Request
                  We tried to get to something on the web server we're not allowed to play with. In other words, we ain't on the party list.

403 - Forbidden
                 We can't access the page. We may not have access (it may require a password), or it may be blocked from our domain.

404 - Not Found                                                                                            The page we were trying to look at was not found on the server. This is probably the most common error we'll come across. What has probably happened is that the web page we were going to has been removed or re-named.

500 - Internal error                                                                                            Usually caused by a CGI error. We fill out a form, but the script used to process it is not working properly.

503 - Service Unavailable
                   The server may be overloaded, down, or have other similar problems. Try later.
