From BibleWiki


(1.) A runner, or courier, for the rapid transmission of letters, etc. (2 Chr. 30:6; Esther 3:13, 15; 8:10, 14; Job 9:25; Jer. 51:31). Such messengers were used from very early times. Those employed by the Hebrew kings had a military character (1 Sam. 22:17; 2 Kings 10:25, "guard," marg. "runners"). The modern system of postal communication was first established by Louis XI. of France in A.D. 1464.

(2.) This word sometimes also is used for lintel or threshold (Isa. 6:4).

This entry includes text from Easton's Bible Dictionary, 1897.

Simple English

The POST, in most computers, is a self-test[1]that checks the OS(s) available and boots from the OS selected. POST stands for Power On Self Test.[2]

Contents

Process

A POST usually checks the crucial, files, folders, and components. Once the POST is completed, a selected OS will take control and finish the startup process.[3]

Failure of POST

If the POST fails, usually a BSOD displays (Blue Screen of Death, most commonly) and offers recovery options such as safe mode.[4]

Other tools

LKGC

LKGC(Last Known Good Configuration) reverts to the last non-problematic, successful bootup.[5]It is similar to System Restore, but its primary function is to allow the user to use the computer normally, unlike System Restore, which does not guarantee a fix. Also, LKGC is unrevertable, unless you successfully bootup again.[6]

System Restore

System Restore works by allowing the user to open a wizard, then select a "restore point". The user must restart for the point to take effect, but the system will start as normal.[7]

System Repair

System Repair is typically found on the hard disk of your computer[8]and contains options that can be used to fix the system. However, in serious cases, the OS may need to be reinstalled.[9]
