BIOS Beep Codes 0.8.0.803
Uncover the meaning of most BIOS beep codes

BIOS Beep Codes is a simple tool that will explain the BIOS error beep codes for all the main PC BIOS manufacturers (AMI, AWARD, Phoenix, IBM).

If you've ever had a PC fail its power-on self-test then you'll know how useful this can be. Typically you'll just get some pattern of beeps - one long and three short, say - and then be left hunting for your system manual to find out what these noises could possibly mean.

With BIOS Beep Codes, though, it's all very different. The program is portable, so save it to a USB flash drive and you can launch it from just about any PC. Then choose your BIOS type and click on the beep code you're hearing for a detailed description of what it's trying to tell you, and how to fix the problem.

If you're just having a problem with your own PC then BIOS Beep Codes may not be necessary; you can just check your documentation to find out what any BIOS alerts might mean.

If you regularly help other people with their PC problems, though, it's worth keeping a copy to hand, just in case of emergencies.

Verdict:

The Beep Codes Viewer doesn't just give you a few words explaining the meaning of each beep code - you get in-depth details on how you might fix the problem, too. An essential addition to every geek's portable troubleshooting toolkit

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.17

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.16.17

• Introducing WhatsApp video calling. With free video calls, you can have face-to-face chats with your friends and family around the world. Data charges may apply. (requires iOS 8+)
• Search for the perfect animated GIF, right from within WhatsApp. Just tap Attach — Photo/Video Library and tap on the GIF search button on the bottom left to get started.
