Transcript of "Components Cole"

  1. 1. Motherboard • The motherboard is the main part of the computer to make all of the other components work. • The motherboard holds all the components such as: RAM slots, CPU, graphics card, heat sink/fan. Sockets, internal and external connectors, and various ports are also placed on the motherboard. • You will need a motherboard to make Your computer work. Some different form factors of the motherboard are: ATX,LPX,NLX and BTX. ATX=Advanced Technology extended. LPX= This is an old version of NLX. NLX=New Low Profile Extended. BTX=Balanced Technology extended.
  2. 2. Hard Drive (HDD) • The hard drive is where you save all of your work or anything else. • IDE=Integrated Drive Electronics. • EIDE=Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics. • PATA=Parallel Advanced Technology Attachment • SATA=Serial Advanced Technology Attachment • SCSI=Small Computer System Interface
  3. 3. Computer case • The computer case holds all of the computer components also it has 2 USB ports and 2 USB ports at the back. • You need one of these to plug in a mouse and a keyboard
  4. 4. Sound card • The sound card is the main component for sound also know as the audio card. • You can also plug in a speaker and microphone and you can put in a gaming controller.
  5. 5. Disk drive • The disk drive is where you can put your DVD CD and games and it will run it
  6. 6. Graphics card • The graphics card it what you need to play games and watch films and do anything else that you want to do. • This also controls what you see on your computer screen
  7. 7. CPU (Central Processing Unit) • The CPU processes instructions that it gathers from decoding the code in programs and other files. There are many different types of CPU’s such as: i3, i5, i7. There is 2 main types of CPU’s: such as AMD, and Intel. (The I stands for Intel.) • There are 3 types of Cores to the CPU, these are Dual, Quad and Single Core. The quad core is faster because there is 4 processers sharing the same job, Furthermore the quad core will also be hotter because there is 4 of them. For instance if I have got an i7 quad core 2.2Ghz it will be 8.8Ghz. • The CPU has four primary functions: Fetch, decode, execute and write back.
  8. 8. Heat Extractor • It is used for getting rid of heat in the computer so it wont blow up or melt. •
  9. 9. Heat Sink/Fan • The heat sink/fan is used so that your computer doesn’t overheat
  10. 10. Ram(Random Access Memory) • You need ram to run and load any applications • Advanced gaming or graphics software require large amounts of RAM. • Most computers have 3 or 2 gigabits of RAM You can also buy RAM and Upgrade your computers Speed/Memory.
  11. 11. Power Supply • A power supply is what you need for your computer to work. • You will need one of these for your computer to operate properly. • DC Voltage • Power=Watts • Voltage=Volts • Amps=Ohms • The power supply converts AC into DC. • DC= Direct Current. • AC= Alternating Current.
  12. 12. Firewire • It is where you can transfer data From the device to the computer e.g. if you have pictures on a camera You can put them on your computer using one of these cables Its similar to a USB
  13. 13. ROM • ROM is ‘Read Only Memory’. • Data stored in ROM cannot be modified or can be modified but very slowly, with some difficulty, so its mainly used to distribute firmware. • Some different types of ROM are: ROM, PROM, EPROM, EEPROM ROM= Read Only Memory. PROM= Programmable Read-Only Memory. EPROM= Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory. EEPROM= Electorally Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory.
  14. 14. BIOS AND CMOS • The definition of BIOS is; A set of computer instructions in firmware that control input and output operations. • The bios checks to see if any input/output devices are connected properly.
