Why does restarting computer fix so many problems?

Whenever you encounter a problem with your computer, the first thing you do to troubleshoot is restarting it. The restart button of your computer is oft times the ultimate solution to any problem.
The fact that no one ever mentions the significance of a reboot is its uncertainty. Still, rebooting your computer forces the software to stop and start again, solving many issues in the process and thus recommended as a first aid for any device issue.
Below-mentioned are the reasons stating that how rebooting your computer fixes most of the problems:

Why Rebooting is a Good Idea

  • If your computer freezes, rebooting could “unfreeze it.” However, it is believed that rebooting causes you to lose data. The reality is that when the computer is frozen your work automatically gets saved. So, rebooting is not going to make any changes to your data.
  • At times Windows OS stops, showing the blue screen of death which is caused due to problem within a hardware driver or a hardware malfunction. When Windows reach such a state where it is not able to figure out any recovery means, it halts displaying the blue-screen of death. After that, your system automatically gets restarted.
  • A fully occupied RAM could be the basis of memory leak creating extra substitute files on the hard drive but less efficient, “RAM.” A PC reboot gives a fresh start to your RAM by resetting the memory. This effectively helps in cleaning up of memory leaks.
  • If you encounter any problem with your Wi-Fi or Internet connection, the software on your router or modem might have come across an issue. Restarting the router is a common solution for connection problems.
  • When you restart your computer, it performs a series of diagnostic checks and often resolves the issues problems automatically.
Therefore if your computer is acting strange, rebooting usually fixes the problem. However, there are some issues which solely cannot be fixed by reboot but, it should be above every other measure which is being performed for troubleshooting the computing issues.

How to Use Electronic devices at night time and not let them affect your Health?

A lot of scientists have done research on the sleeping criteria of the modern people and found that using electronic devices late night have an ill-effect on the health. Even late night reading on e-readers is not good for health. As per the Harvard Medical School that conducted an experimental study, such practices could result in REM (Rapid Eye Movement).
It doesn’t mean that you should throw the electronic devices in the backyard before going to sleep. Just follow these tricks and guard the health:

Limit your electronics time at night

During the night, always avoid using electronics. While the above are aids to help you get a good night’s sleep even with your favorite gadgets all around you, the trick is to allot yourself time for your electronics sessions and religiously follow them.

Practice meditation

In the morning, always do meditation. Doing it regularly keep the mind relaxed and cleans the body spiritually and mentally. There is no need to follow a strict routine to do it daily for one or half an hour, but do it regularly (for at least 10 to 15 minutes at least). Also, if you don’t get the time to do it in the morning, then you can do it in the office too. Sit in a corner and then relax. Relaxing also keeps anxiety and stress away.

Wear amber-lensed goggles

Thanks to the modern technology that there are so many things that can help in relaxing. Wear amber-lensed goggles as it limits the blue light exposure to the eyes. Melatonin shades are effective too as well as affordable. Always switch on the electronic devices after wearing the goggles. Otherwise, you will end up stressed and frustrated.

Methods of Making Money Online

1. Blogging
Blogging is a nice way to make free money.
Blogging is a nice way to make free money.
Obviously, this was going to be the first on my list (I am also a professional blogger after all!). Professional blogging is one of the best known method of getting income from computer based jobs. We all arrive at blogs while surfing and we see advertisements on many blogs. So, we can easily know that the owner of that blog is earning some amount of money from writing the blog content.
There are a number of good and free blog sites where you can easily setup your blog. After setup, you should write about things that really interest you. Once your blog is adequately settled (let’s say when it begins to receive 100 visitors a day), then you should put online ads on it. You can use Google AdSense for getting ads (like I do on TechWelkin) or you can use ad service provided by other networks like Yahoo! also provides its own ads.
By the way, did you know that Google makes 95% of its revenue from advertisement? Bloggers get share from this revenue if they publish Google ads on their blogs. I keep on writing articles about how to become a successful blogger. You should keep an eye on these articles.
Skills required for professional blogging: Good command on language, ability to write in an interesting way, familiarity with basic coding and other technical stuff like SEO.
2. Design Themes

All websites and blogs require a “theme” (also called template or skin) which dictates how the site looks like. For example, TechWelkin theme is based on Genesis Framework and I have designed it myself.
You can also become a theme designer if you have good sense of design and other required skills. Once a theme is done, you can sell it on theme stores or you can setup your own website through which people can buy your themes. Designing themes for platforms like WordPress, Blogger, Joomla, Drupal etc. is a lucrative business. You can earn decently income from this profession.
Skills required: Web design sense, CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Photoshop, knowledge of the target platform.

Can you draw well enough? Have you ever thought that even your drawing (or even doodling) can help you make free money online?
You can print designs, drawings or photos created by you on items like coffee cups, t-shirts, bags etc. and then sell them. A friend of mine is pretty good at making designs. She created her own zazzle online shop and began to sell stuff. Here is how it works:
  • Create your design and fine-tune it
  • Register at and create your own shop (it’s very easy!)
  • Zazzle has merchandise items like cups, cards, t-shirts etc.

The Top 05 PC Games to Buy in 2015

Grand Theft Auto V

We’ve been forced to wait over a year for it to arrive, but now Grand Theft Auto V is here on PC we've got the best version possible: huge resolution textures, heavier traffic, more wildlife to hunt, a first-person view, and framerates that don't bog you down. GTA’s satirical Los Angeles is huge, and it looks phenomenal on PC. 
It’s also a great game too, perhaps the best GTA Rockstar have made. Three distinctly different protagonists that you can swap between at any point drive the action, and the missions on offer never fail to entertain. And then there’s GTA Online that will become your weekend multiplayer go-to; a sandbox to get together with friends in and run amok, rob every bank in the state, and buy a sweet penthouse. 

Star Wars: Battlefront

We all got a little sad when Star Wars: Battlefront III was cancelled, but Battlefield developer DICE has taken on the series to bring us a reboot that should bring a smile back to our faces. So far the development process has been kept a tight secret, but the trailer shows a stunningly photo-realistic recreation of Star Wars’ most iconic locations. DICE are already masters at combined arms warfare, so the mix of giant walkers, hurtling speeders, and on-foot troopers should be in good hands.

Chaos Reborn

Xcom creator Julian Gollop’s latest game is a deeply tactical turn-based multiplayer game that throws in a dash of RNG for good measure. Every player (up to four) takes control of a wizard who, while a little puny, is able to summon in magical creatures to fight his battles for him. The game ends when there's only one wizard remaining.
While a simple concept, there’s an element of chance that keeps every player on edge: attacks are handled on a percentage roll and summonings have the chance to fail, so you’ll have your fingers crossed with almost every action

Batman: Arkham Knight

Rocksteady are back behind the wheel of the Arkham series this year, and they’re rolling out the big guns. No, not Batman’s impressive arms, but his Lamborghini-come-tank personal transporter, the Batmobile. With the streets of Gotham city finally opened up, the Arkham series’ staple of swift, fluid combat now comes packaged with destructive car chases. 
The Joker is also absent from proceedings due to the events of Arkham City, which means that Rocksteady have to get inventive when it comes to a new antagonist. Whilst there will be plenty of the Dark Knight’s expansive rogues gallery involved, the central villain is the Arkham Knight, a techno mirror-image of Batman with an equally tight-lipped approach to identity. With a bit of luck, the Arkham Knight mystery will be one to rival the Bat’s greatest cases. 

Mad Max

Finally an official Road Warrior game is on its way thanks to Just Cause developers Avalanche. There’s been very little of the game shown so far, but expect Mad Max to offer up an open-world that expands the films’ universe, with vehicular carnage being the main element of the game. 
With the Just Cause guys pulling the strings, you already know that the Mad Max films’ sense of violent insanity will be transferred wholesale into the game. 
  Mad Max

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain

For once in its life, Metal Gear Solid is treating the PC like a first class citizen and coming to the platform in a timely fashion. Built on the fancy new FOX engine, MGS5 is a huge leap for the series, featuring expansive, open-ended levels that allow players to pick their approach to objectives and freely play about with the game’s systems. From using a horse as moving concealment to attaching a sky-lift parachute to enemies you need to quickly move out the way, Snake has a plethora of toys available to him that both fulfil tactical needs and the level of idiosyncrasies expected from MGS creator Hideo Kojima.
