Just a geek :)

Beware of wauzers, for they are crafty, and like cheese.

I'm a singaporean computer geek with a very wierd set of majors, and a odder sense of humour. Many people are convinced I'm an ultra intellegent dog, which I neither confirm nor deny. My avatar is a small organic canid of slightly uncertain heritage and a lot of attitude called Ash, who happens to be my public face on the internet.

I'm also one of the top users on superuser. While my answers and edits have hopefully gotten better over the years, there's occasions where I'm uncertain whether my edits are of acceptable quality or not. When this is the case, I rely on my cybernetic counterpart, Aibobot to do edits. Feel free to accept or reject these edits as you would those done by a new user.

I'd guess the extra pins (headsets do TRRS) are to feed the pickups in the headphones into the phone for processing. Interesting approach actually, I've heard of DIY designs that do the same thing.

blog.gsmarena.com/… looks like they only work on that phone and a few other sony models. My guess with be that all the noise cancelling magic is in the phone, rather than in the earbuds.

what version of windows, and what have you looked at so far? Resource monitor on windows 7 and 8 will do that for you, with no additional software

You apparently can also use tags - which might be the case here. The wikipedia link I've referenced is probably worth reading through. I suspect if you're using modern webpages, or stuff like virtual servers, things may differ somewhat.

could you post your answer as an answer(we're not a forum after all, as per help center, and you can get upvoted for both)? And maybe add some screenshots to the question so its clearer what it is?

secure erase is not a tool, its a command that you can give your drive

comment clock rate and power dissipation also how this issue can be rectified by using multiple processors?
But not what the actual problem is. As you said, it sounds like a homework question.

I'm not particularly inclined to replace the fan (and I'm sure I can get one locally). I'd like to monitor the system primarily, especially if I choose to experiment,
