How to displays all current IP network configuration values

Displays all current TCPor IP network configuration values and refreshes Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol DHCP and Domain Name System DNS settings. Used without parameters, ipconfig displays the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway for all adapters.

  • The ipconfig command is the command-line equivalent to the winipcfg command, which is available in Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 98, and Windows 95. Although Windows XP does not include a graphical equivalent to the winipcfg command, you can use Network Connections to view and renew an IP address. To do this, open Network Connections, right-click a network connection, click Status, and then click the Support tab.
  • This command is most useful on computers that are configured to obtain an IP address automatically. This enables users to determine which TCP or IP configuration values have been configured by DHCP, Automatic Private IP Addressing APIPA, or an alternate configuration.
  • If the Adapter name contains any spaces, use quotation marks around the adapter name that is, Adapter Name.
  • For adapter names, ipconfig supports the use of the asterisk * wildcard character to specify either adapters with names that begin with a specified string or adapters with names that contain a specified string. For example, Local* matches all adapters that start with the string Local and *Con* matches all adapters that contain the string Con.
  • This command is available only if the Internet Protocol TCP or IPprotocol is installed as a component in the properties of a network adapter in Network Connections

If you are having a problem on startup displays blank screen especially Hp computers or sometimes you pc may refuse to charge when charger is connected try the following steps.


1. This can be done by Clear CMOS to Reset BIOS Settings 
Complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor CMOS is a small amount of memory on a computer motherboard that stores the Basic Input Output System BIOS settings. The BIOS is the software stored on the memory chip on the motherboard. It instructs the computer on how to perform a number of basic functions such as booting and keyboard control in the computer.

The BIOS is also used to identify and configure hardware in the computer.

To reset your computers BIOS settings back to the default settings check the steps below.

How to reset BIOS settings

Sometime the computer can have problems with booting, some errors during boot, or any problems that cannot be resolved. This means bios need to be reset also the problem might brought by Hard disk problem.

The BIOS is the software stored on the memory chip on the motherboard. It instructs the computer on how to perform a number of basic functions such as booting and keyboard control. The BIOS is also used to identify and configure hardware in the computer.

For no boot or no display issues, clearing CMOS may help recover the boards because that restores the BIOS default settings.

To reset your computers BIOS settings back to the default settings follow the steps below.

1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer.

2. Disconnect the power cord from the AC power source.

3. Remove the computer cover. and find the battery on the board. The battery may be in a horizontal or vertical battery holder, or connected to an onboard header with a wire.

Warning

Before proceeding remember to observe proper anti-static precautions when operating inside the case of your computer. If you do not have an anti-static strap, rub your hands on the metal portion of the case to get rid of static in the computer. If you can’t see your battery right away, try removing expansion cards or unplugging cables. Most new motherboards use lithium batteries that look like large watch batteries. See the image below.

4. Remove the battery: If the battery is in a holder, note the orientation of the + and – on the battery. Gently pry the battery free from its connector. If the battery is connected to an onboard header with a wire, disconnect the wire from the onboard header.

Wait 1–5 minutes, then reconnect the battery. Put the computer cover back on. Plug the computer and all devices back in. and power on your computer

What Is a CMOS Battery?

The CMOS is usually powered by a CR2032 cell battery, referred to as the CMOS battery.

Most CMOS batteries will last the lifetime of a motherboard, up to 10 years in most cases, but will sometimes need to be replaced.

Incorrect or slow system date and time and loss of BIOS settings are major signs of a dead or dying CMOS battery. Replacing them is as easy as swapping out the dead one for a new one.

When the computer is starting up, there’s an option to boot into BIOS or CMOS. Opening the CMOS setup is how you can change the settings it’s storing, like the date and time and how the different computer components are first started up. You can also use CMOS setup to disable/enable some hardware devices. That is the BIOS pulls information from the CMOS chip to understand the hardware settings, time, and anything else that’s stored in it.

CMOS chips are desirable for battery-powered devices like laptops because they use less power than other types of chips. Although they use both negative polarity circuits and positive polarity circuits (NMOS and PMOS), only one circuit type is powered on at a time.

What is windows management instrumentation command-line (wmic) tool

What is windows management instrumentation command-line (wmic) tool The Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) is a command-line and scripting interface that simplifies the use of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and systems managed through WMI. Windows management instrumentation command-line (wmic) tool uses the Common Information Model (CIM), to represent various components of the operating system.

For wmic command are used to display serial number of computers. WMIC is based on aliases. Aliases make the primary data provided by WMI available without having to understand WMI-specific concepts. WMI data and many WMI features are also accessible through WMI without aliases. What is windows management instrumentation command-line (wmic) tool

The Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line (WMIC) is a command-line and scripting interface that simplifies the use of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and systems managed through WMI. Windows management instrumentation command-line (wmic) tool uses the Common Information Model (CIM), to represent various components of the operating system. For wmic command are used to display serial number of computers.

WMIC is based on aliases. Aliases make the primary data provided by WMI available without having to understand WMI-specific concepts. WMI data and many WMI features are also accessible through WMI without aliases.

You can list the available aliases by using WMIC /? help. WMIC has a progressive help system. You can use /? at any time and at any depth to discover the additional options that are available in the current context. /? lists the currently available aliases, commands, and the global switches (that is, switches that apply to WMIC overall). To list the verbs and switches available for an alias, type the name of the alias and /?. To list the parameters available for a particular verb, type the name of the alias, the verb, and then /?.

For example,

To view all of the processes that are currently running on the computer,

Run command prompt from your windows

Type

WMIC

to access WMIC utility and press enter key , Type again

PROCESS

To list a specific process

Type

PROCESS where

in the WMIC utility.

To receive specific properties for the processes,

type a command

PROCESS GET Name, Handle, PageFaults.

You can use the same options with the CLASS command. For example, CLASS Win32_Process GET Name, Handle, PageFaults. And, you must determine the name of the class from other sources. To do the equivalent of the alias Where clause, you must use PATH Win32_Process.Description=\”explorer.exe\”.
