Don't forget to check out our site http://howtech.tv/ for more free how-to videos! http://youtube.com/ithowtovids - our feed http://www.facebook.com/howtechtv - join us on facebook https://plus.google.com/103440382717658277879 - our group in Google+ Blue Screen of death basically occurs when the system malfunctions due to either hardware or software issues. It then prevents the system from turning on normally and instructs you to rectify the problem first. In this tutorial, we will address the different causes of the blue screen of death errors. Step 1 -- Scan for hardware changes Stop errors are of different kind and can occur because of different reasons. For example, majority of the stop errors occur because the drivers are not updated. For that, you can open up the device manager window and scan for the hardware changes. Step 2 -- Update drivers If any driver needs an update, this process will automatically install the required driver on your system. After this step, if the blue screen of death doesn't appear, this means that the error did in fact occur due to the driver updates. Step 3 -- Review windows update history Sometimes windows updates might not be installed properly and it's always a good idea to check and view the update history to make sure that all the updates are installed properly. Step 4 -- Check bios settings If there are any hardware changes that you might have done, the bios settings might be changed automatically, and therefore the changes won't get registered properly with windows and therefore the blue screen of death might appear. To resolve that, you can go to the bios setup utility and load the setup defaults. With this option, all the changes that might have been done would be reverted and only the default settings would be loaded. Step 5 -- Use the last good configuration option If windows is still malfunctioning, you can opt for the Last good configuration option which appears when you press the F8 key while windows is booting up. This option would load the default windows settings, which were present before the error started to occur. These were the common causes of blue screen of death errors.
How to Use Sort Command in Unix
 
01:29
The UNIX Sort command in Linux can be used to arrange the data that appears in the output. This data can also be sent to a specified file. In this tutorial, we will show you how to use the sort command in unix. The sort command allows you to arrange the fields and data that are printed on the screen. This command assumes that the fields present are simply words that are just separated by means of blanks. However, an alternative parameter for selection of words can be specified e.g. colons. Output that is arranged from the sort command is printed on the screen unless it is redirected to a specific file. To understand more about the sort commands follow the tutorial steps given below. Step 1 -- List the directory contents First of all, let's list the contents of the directory. Over here, you can see the file "alpha.txt" present. Step 2 -- Read file in terminal application To understand how sort command works, first let's read the text file in the terminal application. For that, type the command "cat alpha.txt" and hit enter. With that done, here you can see the contents of the text file on the screen. Step 3 -- Sort the data being displayed on the screen What if you wanted to sort the data being displayed on the screen. For that, type the command "sort alpha.txt" and hit enter. With that done, you can see that now the letters are being displayed in alphabetical order. Notice how the lowercases are printed first over here. Step 4 -- Display the uppercase alphabets first What if we wanted the uppercase alphabets to be printed first? For that, we will type in "sort -f -s alpha.txt" and hit enter. Now you can see that the uppercase are being displayed first. Over here, notice that we have multiple entries of the same alphabets Step 5 -- Display the unique entries What if we want to display only the unique entries in the terminal application? For that, we will type this sort command in unix "sort -f - s -u alpha.txt" and hit enter. With that done, you can see that now there are no duplicate entries over here. Step 6 -- Sort the data in reverse If want to sort the data in reverse, you can do that by typing: "sort -f -r alpha.txt" and hitting enter. With that done, you will notice that the letters over here are now being displayed in reverse. And that's basically how you can use the sort commands to arrange the data in different ways.

From the start menu open "Computer" and in the search box in the top right of the window type the name of the program you want to run, here "notepad". Wait for the computer to build the list of results and scroll down this list until you find the program that you want. Double click on the program and if it launches then you have the right link, close the program. As you can see here Notepad is located in "C:\Windows" so the complete location of the file is "C:\Windows\notepad.exe" (the exe is because it is an executable program file). Step # 2 -- Navigating to the Right Part of the Registry Editor Now, click the start orb and in the "Search programs and files" box type "regedit" and press "Return". Click "Yes" in the dialog box that appears. The "Registry Editor" will open. You are going to need to navigate to: "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" On the right you will see a list of values determining what launches when you start the computer, you are going to want to add a string here. Step # 3 -- Creating a New Registry Entry Right click anywhere on the frame and navigate to "New" then click "String Value". Enter a name and press return. Now right click on the entry you just created and click modify. Into the window enter " " " then the location of the program, then another " " ". Click "OK". Step # 4 -- Making Sure the Program Starts To make sure that the registry addition has worked restart your computer.

How to use the switch Statement in C#
 
03:05
This tutorial is about switch statement in C#. Switch statement is used when you have to evaluate a variable for multiple values Don't forget to check out our site http://howtech.tv/ for more free how-to videos! http://youtube.com/ithowtovids - our feed http://www.facebook.com/howtechtv - join us on facebook https://plus.google.com/103440382717658277879 - our group in Google+ Introduction: We have seen the if---else construct. Another conditional statement is the switch statement in C#. It is used when you have to evaluate a variable for multiple values. In C, switch statements are defined by the following syntax: switch(variablename) { case constantexpression_1: statements; break; case constantexpression_2: statements; break; default: statements; break; } When the switch statement in C# is executed, the variable in the switch statement is evaluated. The value of the variable is compared with each case constant. If one of the case constants is equal to the value of the variable given in the switch statement, control is passed to the statement following the match case statement. A break statement is used to exit the switch---case construct. If none of the cases match, the default block gets executed. The keyword switch is followed by the variable in parentheses. Each case keyword is followed by a possible value for the variable. The points to be noted here are: • The data type of the constants should match the data type of the variable being evaluated by the switch construct. • Before entering the switch construct, a value should be assigned to the switch variable. • break statement completes a case construct and its compulsory to finish the case. Step 1: Implementing Switch Statement A complex if---else construct can be replaced by a simple switch---case construct. The following code is an example of nested if---else construct: if (grade==1) Console.WriteLine("Excellent"); else if (grade==2) Console.WriteLine("Good"); else if(grade==3) Console.WriteLine("Fair"); else Console.WriteLine("Invalid Grade"); This code can be replaced by a switch---case construct as follows: switch(grade) { case 1: Console.WriteLine("Excellent"); break; case 2: Console.WriteLine("Good"); break; case 3: Console.WriteLine("Fair"); break; default: Console.WriteLine("Invalid Grade"); break; } Conclusion In C, switch statement construct evaluates an expression only once at the top, where as the if---else construct evaluates the expression for each if statement. Thus it can be said that the switch statement in C# is a simpler form of the nested if---else construct.

The more command is used in Linux for displaying the text on the screen. It is basically a filter that can be combined with other attributes, for example paging through the text etc. In this tutorial w e will explore the different variations that come along with the unix commands of more. Step 1 -- List the directory contents First of all, let's list the contents of the directory over here. You can see a text file is present in the directory. Step 2 -- Use the "more" command Now let's type "more" along with the file name, which in this case is "TextFile". Once we hit enter, the contents of this text file is displayed on the screen. Step 3 -- Enter command with the c attribute Now let's try this command with the c attribute For that type "more --c TextFile" and hit enter You will notice that the screen will get cleared and the contents of the file would be displayed here Step 4 -- View the output You will notice that the screen will get cleared and the contents of the file would be displayed here. Step 5 -- Associate numbers with the command You can also associate numbers with the unix more command. Let's look at an example. If we type "more -10 TextFile" and hit enter, you will see that only the data till line number ten is displayed. This is actually what the num tag does. It only displays the text up till the number specified. If you want to see additional data in the file, you will have to press the Enter key. Step 6 -- Exclude the first 10 lines Similarly to exclude the first 10 lines of your data, you can use the "+10" attribute along with the more command. Here you will observe that the first 10 lines of the text file would be excluded and the rest of the data would be displayed. And that's it, from the above steps you can understand the attributes of the unix commads of more.

In this tutorial we will guide you on how to set up and change the ssh password in Linux. Step#1: Setup an SSH password If we open up the terminal application and try connecting to the local host using the root user, an error would appear stating that the permission is denied. That is because by default SSH disables root login as a security measure. That means, to setup a password for ssh for the root user, we would have to edit the ssh configuration file. For that, we will open up the ssh configuration file in the graphical editor using the command: gedit /etc/ssh/sshd_config In the configuration, move to the authentication section and change the value for Permit Root Login from no to yes. With that done, you can close the editor window and get back to the terminal. Step#2: SSH login with password Over here, let's restart the ssh service for the changes to take effect. Now let's try to connect to the local host as the root user and you would notice that a new session will be created with the root user. That means the ssh password has been successfully configured. Step#3: Change password To change the ssh password, you can simply change the password of the username you are connecting with. Since we are logged in as the root user, we will type sudo passwd followed by the username, which in this case is root. Step#4: Update new password With that done, you can now type the new password which you want to keep. Next, you would be required to re-type the password as a security check. Once done, the password would be successfully changed. And that's it.

Step 1 -- List the contents To see its implementation, let's list the contents of the directory first. Step 2 -- Create an SSH session with root user Now we will create an SSH session with the root user, who in this case is the user of the remote system. And after that, we will define the IP address we want to connect with. With that done, you will be required to type in the root password of the remote system you are connecting with. Step 3 -- List contents of remote system's home directory Now you can see that we are in the root folder of the remote system. Now let's use the LS command to list the contents of the remote system's home directory. From here we will copy the veriable.sh script to our local system. Step 4 -- Use the "scp" command For that, first let's log out of the remote session and use the "scp" command followed by the user of the remote system. After that, we will type in the IP address followed by the exact path of the file we want to copy. Step 5 -- Enter the password Now you will be required to type the password of the remote system and hit enter. With that done, the file will be sent to your system using the ssh file transfer. Step 6 -- List the directory contents If we list the contents of the directory over here, you can see that the file is now present on our system's root folder. And that's it, from the above steps you can learn how to transfer files using ssh.

ArrayList class implements a collection of objects using an array whose size dynamically increases as required. The advantage ArrayList gets over array is that it can add, search, index and remove data in a collection. Read through the step by step guide below and learn how to use arraylist in c#  Step 1: Adding namespace The add method is used to add the elements to an Array List in C#. Since an ArrayList is a collection of objects, casting is compulsory. ArrayList is present in the namespace System.Collections. Hence you need to add the statement: using System.Collections; Step 2: Implementing ArrayList The following code snippet shows the implementation of an ArrayList: ArrayList list = new ArrayList(); list.Add("one"); list.Add("two"); you can keep adding elements to your collection. The objects are stored in a managed heap. Step 3: Iterating ArrayList You can use foreach statement to iterate through the array: foreach(string i in list) { Console.Write("\t"+i); } Step 4: Insert Objects into ArrayList You can also insert an element into the ArrayList at a specified index: list.Insert(1, "three"); Remember that the index value of an ArrayList starts from 0. Step 5: Remove Objects from ArrayList The Remove and RemoveAt members delete data from an ArrayList. The RemoveAt method removes the element at the specified index of the ArrayList, while the Remove method removes the first occurrence of a specific object from the ArrayList: list.Remove("three"); Conclusion Once removing elements, you can always set the capacity to the actual number of elements in the ArrayList with the TrimToSize function: list.TrimToSize(); The ArrayList in C# class offers a variety of properties and methods that you can work on with.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to open an excel file in C# application. Don't forget to check out our site http://howtech.tv/ for more free how-to videos! http://youtube.com/ithowtovids - our feed http://www.facebook.com/howtechtv - join us on facebook https://plus.google.com/103440382717658277879 - our group in Google+ In this easy step by step tutorial, you will learn how to access and open an excel workbook using C#. Microsoft Excel can be managed and operated through C# code with the help of several built in libraries, which include functions to operate Excel. Step#1: Create a new project First of all, let's start a new project in C#, select Console Application from the options and name the project before hitting the OK button. Step#2: Accessing Microsoft Office Application Libraries With that done, the code window will open up. Now we have to add some libraries first. For that, move towards the libraries portion at the top, and add the two assemblies as shown below: "using Microsoft.Office.Interop", and "using Excel=Microsoft.Office.Interop.excel." These assemblies contain the functions required for the input and output for Microsoft Office Applications, in this case Excel files in C#. Step#3: Specifying the path of the Excel file Next, define a new function in the code, and name it 'openfile()'. We will be accessing an excel file in C# that already exists in the system. Hence, the function definition will start with a string variable which would contain the path for the excel file we need to open. We can define the path with the "@" sign, enclosing it in double quotes. Now let us move to the directory where our file is kept. This is the file which has to be opened through our console application. Notice that it only contains a small string over here. To find its path, you can open up the properties window and move to the security tab. The path is written at the top next to "Object name". Simply copy and paste it in the code. using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using Microsoft.Office.Interop; using Excel = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel; namespace open_exelfile { class Program { static void openfile() { string mySheet = @"C:\Desktop\book.xlsx"; var excelApp = new Excel.Application(); excelApp.Visible = true; Excel.Workbooks books = excelApp.Workbooks; Excel.Workbook sheet = books.Open(mySheet); } static void Main(string[] args) { openfile(); } } } Step#4: Finalizing the openfile() Function With that done, create two more objects, one with the "Excel.workbooks" class and the other with the "Excel.workbook sheet" class. After that, let's assign the sheet variable in the "books.Open" argument over here. The function definition is now completed and we just have to call our function. For that, just copy the function name and paste it along with a semicolon in the Main function. Step#5: Adding References to Execute the Application If you press F5 to execute the code, you will be notified with some build errors. This is because we haven't added the references for Microsoft Excel Objects which we are using in our code. To add them, just open the Project menu and choose the "Add Reference" option. In the "COM" tab, select the component "Microsoft Excel 12.0 Object Library" and press OK. Now execute the program. A console screen will appear, and after the processing is complete, the excel file will open up. And this is how to open excel file in C#.

How to use Loops in C#

This tutorial is about how to use loops in C#. Loop structures are used when there is a need to execute one or more statements again and again Don't forget to check out our site http://howtech.tv/ for more free how-to videos! http://youtube.com/ithowtovids - our feed http://www.facebook.com/howtechtv - join us on facebook https://plus.google.com/103440382717658277879 - our group in Google+ Introduction Loop structures are used when there is a need to execute one or more statements again and again. In C#, the following loops can be used: • The while loop • The do---while loop • The for loop The while loop When you need to execute a block statements for a definite number of times, depending on a condition, you use a while loop. The while loop in C# checks the condition before executing the statements in the loop. As the execution reaches the last statement, the control is passed back to the beginning of the loop and the condition is checked again. The loop continues to execute until the condition evaluates to false. The following code snippet is an example of the while loop construct: while (number less than 100) { Console.WriteLine("Value of Number = "+number); number = number+10; } Note that the value of the number is incremented by 10 and the loop continues till the value of the number is less than 100. This prevent the loop from running infinitely. The do---while loop The do—while loop construct is similar to the while loop construct. Both continues looping until the while condition becomes false. The difference is the check of the conditional statement takes place at the end of the loop in a do---while loop construct. Hence, the statements within a do---while loop construct gets executed at least once. Consider the following code snippet: do { Console.WriteLine("Value of Number = "+number); number = number+10; } while (number less than 100);   The for loop In C#, for loop is used to execute a block of statements for a specific number of times. The syntax of the C# for loop construct: for(initialization;termination;increment/decrement) { Statements; } The initialization expression initializes the for loop construct. The termination expression is checked at the end of each loop execution and the increment/decrement is done after each loop execution. Note that all these components are optional. The following code snippet is an example of the for loop in C#: for(number=10; number less than 20; number++) Console.WriteLine("Value of Number = "+number);
