Basic Computer Hardware Course: To improve your computer architecture skills and understand computers better, take advantage of this course called Basic Computer Hardware Course. This course is compatible with all computer PDF courses to improve your level as well as your computer. All you have to do is download the training document, open it and start learning computers for free.
This course is designed for beginners to help beginners understand computer architecture. After completing this course you will find yourself with a medium level of expertise in computers from where you can take yourself to the next level. This course is designed for computer students who are completely ignorant of computer concepts but have a basic understanding of computer architecture training.
This section is just an overview of the various parts: This course gives a more formal and detailed description of the various components of a computer. This chapter does not explain the inner workings of the pieces, but rather describes their roles and relationships.
What you’ll learn
- Understand computer hardware
- Understand the inside the computer console
- Understand connectors and connections
- Learn about motherboards, processors, internal and external storage
Basic Computer Hardware
Processor: This is the most important piece of computer. This is the electronic chip that is the brain of your machine. When a computer is running a program, the processor is responsible for reading instructions one after the other and performing the request.
Memory: Memory is the 2nd important component in a computer. When programs are executed, they are first loaded into memory for processing. In addition, when you edit a text, it is located in memory at the time of editing. In short, each task performed on a computer should temporarily store the information in memory.
Hard drive: Hard drive is where unused data and programs are stored. Unlike RAM, disk data is recorded permanently (unless a serious hardware failure occurs). This is a real advantage over RAM.
Unfortunately, the technology used for hard disks (mechanical) does not allow for rapid use as RAM (electronic). So hard drive is not as expensive as RAM. Hard disks of today (2002) are measured in terms of gigabytes.
Keyboard and mouse: They are called input devices. The term peripheral refers to devices that are around the central machine, which are around the processor and memory. To this term, the term input is added which means that the device is used to input data into the machine (input peripheral). Of course, there are also output peripherals for data output from the machine (such as screens, printers).
