Hasee?! Its the brand of the laptop issued in my college under Government of Tamil Nadu Laptop Computer Scheme. Everyone started looking at the brand name when the laptop was issued. Well most of us (including me) have not heard it before. But its one of the largest manufacturers in China. Remember LG, Samsung, Hyundai are also from Korea. Even Apple products are manufactured in China, Japan and Korea. After checking the specification, its quite good. But these people made it to look bad with the boot screen and BOSS. Let’s tweak it to look like brand new laptop.
1. Change Boot Screen
The boot screen or the splash screen is what we see when we turn on the machine, like the logos of hp and dell, we see “Government of Tamil Nadu … “. It can be easily changed without any coding or hard work.
- Press F2 while you see the boot screen – “Government of Tamil Nadu”. If you are lazy it will go to Select OS screen, press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to reboot
- It will get you to the BIOS settings. Go to “Boot” menu
- Disable “Quiet Boot”
- Press F4 and select Yes – Save changes and exit
Use arrow keys to navigate and Enter key to change values. If you want to see the boot screen for some time, Go to BIOS settings>Boot menu, change the value in Setup Prompt Timeout.
Update: It depends upon BIOS. This article is in reference to Intel Motherboard and American Megatrends Inc BIOS (Version 4.6.5 dated 1/15/2013).
2. Delete BOSS
Its developed in India few years ago. I don’t know what is helpful in it when ubuntu, fedora and others are competing in linux world. Deleting BOSS will give you 100GB space in Windows OS. But you should take care while doing it, otherwise Windows will not boot.
There are lot of guides available in Internet for doing this. Delete linux partition from windows and make WIndows as default boot. You need windows recovery disk or other tools for that. Check how do to it here
I am not responsible for any damages you make.I made it successful using windows recovery disc with no command prompt (console and codes).
3. Activate Microsoft Office
The product key for microsoft office is in COA label under your laptop. In the start menu, select microsoft office 2010 and choose Activate, enter the office key. It will activate Student version, most office applications are available in this version.
Once activated, you can uninstall (only) “Microsoft Office 2010 click to Run”. It will remove the local disk Q. Do not uninstall “Microsoft office 2010″
4. Install AntiVirus Software
Install Good AntiVirus and update it often.
