A Browser is a piece of software that everybody needs if they want to surf the Internet for useful or interesting websites. Web pages are designed to be read by Browsers and Browsers are designed to read web pages. Fortunately, acquiring a Browser is slightly easier than catching the common cold. They are everywhere. Most computers now come with one pre-installed. A great many CD-ROMs are now designed to be read like a website and so include a Browser which can be installed onto a computer's hard drive and ISPs give them away free to anyone who signs up for their service. There is nothing difficult about acquiring a Browser.

Of all these error codes by far the most common is 404 which is also one of the few that can be worked around - always assuming the website has not simply ceased to exist. Everything else can be fixed although it would help to explain the difference between web names as they appear in the press and as they appear in a Browser.

Thunderbolt. The Thunderbolt standard (formerly called Light Peak) is aimed at being able to use a single interface for multiple device connections. Thunderbolt is a 10Gbps (1.25GBps) interface that combines PCI-E (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) with DisplayPort in a single, thin cable. It can daisy-chain compatible devices, and it supports hubs, which lets you use a single cable connection to link your computer to a mouse, keyboard, monitor, and external storage drive. Even data from an external RAID (redundant array of independent drives) array of SSDs wouldn’t hit a bottleneck on its way to your computer, thanks to Thunderbolt.

DisplayPort is a super-fast, 21.6Gbps interface designed to carry video to computer monitors. With this much bandwidth on tap, it’s able to accommodate greater resolution, faster refresh rates, and more color depth than HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface). Besides professional media content generation applications, DisplayPort (sometimes abbreviated DP) is ideal for multiple-monitor setups.

• Switched-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) is an electronic circuit which converts the power using switching devices that are turned on and off at high frequencies, and storage components such as indicators or capacitors to supply power when the switching device is in its non-conduction state. It can be abbreviated as SMPS.
• The switched-mode power supply is also called switch-mode power supply or switching-mode power supply. Its efficiency is high. That’s why we use it in the variety of electronic types of equipment which require a stable and efficient power supply.
