Intel Released Security Update for Wireless Drivers  

Posted by Laptop Tips

Intel released a security update for its Intel 2200BG and 2915AVG Pro/Wireless Network Connection Hardware device drivers and PROSet management software on laptops to help protect against serious security vulnerabilities. An attacker, within range of the Wi-Fi station, can exploit these vulnerabilities to lead to remote code execution and system control, Laptop Logic published.

Intel published that these flaws are due to a memory corruption while parsing certain frames.

Affected products include: Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG with all prior driver versions to 10.5 and Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG with all previous 10.5 driver versions as well. Application versions affected include 8, 9, and 10.

How to Extend the Battery Life on Your Laptop Computer Without any Extra Power Sources  

Posted by Laptop Tips

Laptop computers are great portable offices, and as technology increases and speeds of computers increase, we are seeing battery life also increase and provide longer usage time with out the need to be “plugged in.”

But occasionally, as business travelers, who need to be plugged in, it can be hard to find an outlet and one may be stranded to only use the internal juice in your computer.

Most laptop batteries last about 2 hours on a full charge, but I found a couple of creative ways to turn those 2 hours into 3 or even 4 hours of pure usage time, with out having to buy more gadgets to fill up or weigh down my briefcase.

Here are two really simple things you can do, to prolong your power on your laptop and get more usage out of your charge.

1. Turn off your wireless transmitter

When you are using your laptop with your wireless transmitter, it is always looking for a signal. So by disabling it, in an area where you cannot get any internet access via wireless, it will actually conserve your battery life.

2. Lower Your Screen Contrast

Most people don’t think about this one.

But if you usually have your laptop monitor set at the highest and brightest contrast, your computer is working the hardest.

If you simply lower your contrast in half to make it less brighter, you will find you can still see the interfaces on your computer very well.

By doing this in a bright area, you may have trouble if your bightness “whites out” too much.

But in a dark airplane for example, lowering your contrast and brightness in half can actually make it easier to see your screen and make it less bright and even more enjoyable for your passenger sitting next to you, to not have a bright laptop light shining in their face.

Keeping Your Laptop Like New

Laptops are expensive. Therefore you need to take real good care of it. And laptop maintenance is not a one time thing. It should be a regular exercise. To prevent your notebook’s LCD from becoming smudged or dirty you should clean it regularly.

We recommend spraying a diluted window cleaner onto a soft, non-abrasive cloth and then lightly wiping the screen with it. It might be simpler to just spray the detergent directly on the screen but it’s not recommended as the fluid can trickle down into the bezel at the screen’s bottom which could in turn damage the computer’s circuitry.
