  • Patent number: 9513690
    Abstract: An information processing method using a first information processing apparatus, the first information processing apparatus including a power supply circuit, a first processor configured to receive power supply from the power supply circuit, and a second processor configured to receive power supply from the power supply circuit, the information processing method includes decreasing an operating frequency of the first processor, based on a decrease in an amount of power supply from the power supply circuit; and stopping data processing of the first processor in a state in which the second processor is being operated, after decreasing the operating frequency of the first processor.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 8380967
    Abstract: An information processing unit and a storage unit are connected to each other through any one of a first interface, which is capable of interconnection in which the storage unit is powered on first, and after the storage unit is put into operation, the information processing unit is powered on, and a second interface, which is incapable of interconnection. The information processing unit has a PROM storing information on type of interface. The management unit reads out the type from the PROM upon reception of an instruction to power on the information processing unit. When the information processing unit is connected to the storage unit through the first interface, power-on is performed by predetermined control. When the information processing unit is not connected to the storage unit through the first interface, the storage unit is powered on, and then, the information processing unit is powered on.

  • Publication number: 20080301715
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a failure-definition information storage unit for pre-storing failure-definition information including failure information regarding failures in the information processing apparatus and identification information regarding whether or not the failures can be fixed by a user who uses the information processing apparatus. The failure information and the identification information are associated with each other. The apparatus further includes: an occurred-failure information generating unit for generating information regarding an occurred failure as occurred-failure information; a determining unit for determining whether or not the occurred failure can be fixed by the user, based on the failure-definition information and the occurred-failure information generated; and a notification unit for issuing a notification to the user, when the determining unit determines that the occurred failure can be fixed by the user.
