South Bridge is also called ICH or input-output controller HUB. System will be dead if there is any fault in South Bridge. In this post I will explain how to confirm that south bridge or ICH is faulty in a desktop motherboard step by step.

For replacing or upgrading your desktop RAM, it’s very important to know what kind of RAM it is currently using. You can know that by reading the nameplate sticker sticked on it or looking physically. Every type of RAM operates in different voltage levels and frequency . Here inn this post we will discuss them one by one.
RAM stands for Random access memory. It helps processor to fetch data randomly as well as very fast. It stores the data temporarily for current running programs.
Like different generations of computer there are different generations of RAM. We will discuss one by one.
MOSFET stands for metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor. Like common transistors,it is also used as amplifying and switching device.The main difference from bi-polar transistor is that it’s gate (which is equivalent to base of a bipolar transistor) is electrically insulated.The metal-oxide insulation, commonly silicon di-oxide provides very high input resistance which makes the device suitable for different types of applications.
When you don’t have data sheet of any transistor in your hand, you face trouble in determining legs of transistors. Here I will tell you, How to determine legs of a transistor using a multimeter.
