Computer System Hardware

  1. 1. Ron Jesus Villacampa's Masterpiece
  2. 2. CoMpUtEr SysTeM HaRdWaRe i n p u t process storage o u t p u t
  3. 3. Input Devices An input device lets you communicate with a computer.  You can use input devices to enter information and issue commands. Most common input devices are: Keyboard Scanner Digital Camera Pointing Devices
  4. 4. >used to type data into the computer. >has special keys for giving the computer commands. >commands tell the computer to do something, like save the file. K E Y B O A R D
  5. 5. >PHOTO GALLERY< >keyboard<
  6. 6. <ul><li>>allows you to scan documents, pictures, or graphics and view them on the computer.  </li></ul><ul><li>>converts an image into dots that the computer can understand </li></ul>S C A N N E R
  7. 7. >PHOTO GALLERY< >scanner<
  8. 8. <ul><ul><li>>pointing devices move some object on the screen and can do some action </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: </li></ul></ul>P O I N T I N G devices Mouse Trackball Joystick
  9. 9. Mouse Trackball Joystick > a pointing device that rolls around on a flat surface and controls the location of the pointer on the screen. <ul><ul><li> > consist of a metal or plastic handle mounted on a base that you can move in any direction to move the pointer or other object. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>> it is rolling a ball around with your fingers to control the location of the pointer. </li></ul></ul>

  11. 11. Processing Central Processing Unit / Processor Microprocessor
  12. 12. <ul><ul><li>> the portion of a computer system that carries out the instructions of a computer program </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>> it is the primary element carrying out the computer's functions. </li></ul></ul>P R O C E S S I N G unit central
  13. 13. >PHOTO GALLERY< >C.P.U.<
  14. 14. <ul><ul><li>>incorporates most or all of the functions of a central processing unit (CPU) on a single integrated circuit </li></ul></ul>M I C R O P R O C E S S O R >constructed out of small and medium-scale ICs containing the equivalent of a few to a few hundred transistors.

  16. 16. Storage Hard Drive Floppy Drive CD-ROM Drive Removable Hard Disk
  17. 17. >it is the primary device that a computer uses to store information and stores programs, data files, saves files, and organizes files.  >it magnetically stores data on stacks of rotating disks called platters. H A R D D R I V E
  18. 18. >PHOTO GALLERY< >hard drives<
  19. 19. >small, portable disks that hold a limited amount of data > it stores and retrieves information on a floppy disk. F L O P P Y D R I V E
  20. 20. >PHOTO GALLERY< >floppy drives<
  21. 21. >it is a device that reads information stored on a compact disc.  >it stands for CD Read Only Memory. >it can hold large amounts of data, but is read-only access. C D - R O M D R I V E
  22. 22. >PHOTO GALLERY< >cd-rom drives<
  23. 23. >a zip disk is a removable disk that holds a large amount of information. >it can be used to achieve, protect and transfer large amounts of data. >auxiliary storage devices that can be portable. R E M O V A B L E hard disk

  25. 25. Output Devices Monitor Printer Speaker An output device displays information on a screen, creates printed copies or generates sound. It enable the computer to give or show you the results of its processing. Examples are:
  26. 26. >shows the processed information on a screen and used to display video output to a user. >uses a Picture Tube like a television with the image displayed on the front of the tube, which is called the screen.  M O N I T O R S
  27. 27. >PHOTO GALLERY< >monitors<
  28. 28. >used to produce a hard copy >the information is printed on paper and can be used when the device is off. It is also called a printout. >Dot Matrix, Ink Jet and Laser are types of printers. P R I N T E R S
