FREE Software To Quickly Retrieve The Serial Presence Detect (SPD) From Your RAM Modules

September 30, 2014

I recently came across PassMark RAMMon (FREE for personal use) to help me positively identify the RAM Modules in a PC and thought I would pass this onto my readers.

Passmark RAMMon

PassMark RAMMon generates an extensive snapshot of the manufacturer, the clockspeed and other data of their DDR2, DDR3, XMP and EPP memory devices and even some older memory types. It uses SysInfo DLL SDK to gather the SPD attributes from RAM devices. 

What is SPD?

Serial Presence Detect (SPD) is the standard set forth by JEDEC for a host system to retrieve attributes of memory modules. The SPD standard is intended for use on any memory module, independent of memory technology or module form factor.

RAMMon displays the values stored on RAM module such as the memory capacity, the manufactuer, serial number, model part number, the CAS latencies supported and the module voltage.

Also, depending on your RAM type, other specific SPD data can be retreived as well. Such as the module thickness, module width, maximum operating temperature and more.


WordWeb FREE English Dictionary And Thesaurus Recently Updated

September 21, 2014

WordWeb is a dictionary (and Thesaurus) where you can lookup any word virtually from any program. I have been using it for years. I know you can google words to get their definitions, but it is nice to have a dictionary available, even when you are not online.

WordWeb can be installed as a portable app too (just click on the “advanced options” during the install process). WordWeb recently received some suttle updates (such as new words and spelling suggestions).

Another really cool feature built into WordWeb is the ability to use Wikipedia, Wiktionary and WordWeb online. If you do not have WordWeb, I suggest you get it [HERE]


Manage The Volume On Your Computer With The Wheel On Your Mouse

September 18, 2014

When I need to raise or lower the sound on my computer, I simply move my mouse pointer to the taskbar (at the bottom) of the screen and rotate the mouse wheel forward to raise the volume and rotate the mouse wheel backward to lower the volume (to the point that it can be muted). To do this I use the utility, by Nirsoft, called Volumouse. This little utility (which is less that 100KB) has been around for quite awhile and works on all modern Windows platforms.

Volumouse

To make Volumouse operate in the manner which I described above, simply launch Volumouse and under the column labelled “Use the wheel when“, select “Mouse cursor is over the taskbar“…  Click “OK“, then “Apply” and that is all there is to it.

Lightweight But Professional CD/DVD/Blu-Ray Burning Software

September 5, 2014

Most folks at home are reluctant to burn CDs/DVDs due they feel it is a complicated process. Well, to help you out I came across a really nice burning software application, called AnyBurn, that is FREE, is available as a portable app, is powerful and best of all it is really easy to understand and use. As a matter of fact, if you take a look at the image below, you will see AnyBurn in a nutshell (that in my opinion really requires no explanation). If you do need some help getting started using AnyBurn, click on any of the tutorial links below, and you will be redirected to the official AnyBurn site. I have been using AnyBurn for quite awhile and right now it is the only burning software on my PC.

A Simple But Powerful Windows Program Uninstaller

September 4, 2014

Want a powerful program uninstaller for your computer? If so, I encourage you to take a look at Geek Uninstaller.

This little app, which is a single file, works better than the standard built-in Windows uninstaller in that it performs a deeper scan and removes all of the leftovers. The Windows uninstaller often leaves debris behind.

Great-looking and surprisingly functional, GeekUninstaller will help you keep your computer clean and organized! Instant startup, minimalistic, simple but efficient user interface. Single EXE runs flawlessly on both 32 and 64-bit Windows 7/8/XP/Vista. When running on x64 Windows GeekUninstaller is running as a native 64-bit application. Programs highlighted with purple orange color are recently installed/modified (since last run of Geek Uninstaller).


DSynchronize – A Stand-Alone Utility That Lets You Periodically Synchronize Two Or More Folders On Your Hard Disk

August 30, 2014

With DSynchronize you should never again have an excuse for not backing up your files. This small utility rocks and is what I use to backup my main folders (such as Documents, Pictures, Videos, etc…) to my external drives. There is no installation.  Download, unzip and run. Simply select your source (the files/folders you want to back up) and select the destination (where you want to back the source files/folders to).

The only negative I see with DSynchronize, is that there is no help file; however, if you go with the “checked” settings (that I use), under General Options and Deleted Files, in the graphic below, you will be good to go. Once you have everything setup, click on “Synchronize”.

ALSO, to further help you, if you watch the YouTube video below, you will get a really good understanding on how DSynchronize works. This is really good software, is FREE, easy to understand and it just plain works. You can even set up DSynchronize to perform a realtime sync. Great job to the developer on this.

NOTE:  To download DSynchronize, visit [HERE], and scroll down the page and you will see it.
