How I Teach Computer Basics (Part 1: 7 Main Hardware Components)

Hello all,

I like to fix computers, but what I like is teaching others how to understand / repair computers. I try to simplify all kinds of explanations so that even beginners can understand what I teach. Here’s how I teach / explain the seven main computer components:

1) Motherboard

The motherboard is the heart of the computer. Every other part of the computer sits or is connected to the motherboard in a number of ways. The motherboard is a rectangular colored board at the bottom of the case. Motherboards can also be called “main boards”, “system boards”, or “mobos”.

2) CPU

CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the brain of the computer. It runs the software and processes the data that you are working on. The CPU is above the motherboard and is covered by a cooler and a cooling fan.

3) RAM

RAM (Random Access Memory) stores or remembers the software data that you are running. The RAM module (“stick”) is long and thin and looks like a short ruler. Each RAM module is installed in the appropriate slot on the motherboard.

4) Video Card

The video card creates images that appear on the computer monitor. Almost all modern video cards are installed in the AGP (Accelerated Graphics Port) slot, or PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) slot on the …

Web Trends to Look Out for

Just like fashion, web design is subject to trends and as we begin a new year, it’s interesting to predict what will be the latest trends in website design. Last year was all about mobile optimisation, with mobile browsing overtaking desktop browsing for the first time. So, what will be this year’s big design story?

Bright and Beautiful

Simple is still where’s it at but this doesn’t have to mean boring. Big, bold colours are being seen more and more, with designers being courageous and leaving safe colours behind. It’s likely to be a year for big colour saturation, vibrant daring colours and non-traditional header design being introduced. As monitors and screens become more advanced in their ability to reproduce more vibrant colours, designers can use this to their advantage and create bold branded images. This is good news for new brands who want to make an impact and those who wish to set themselves apart from the norm.

The data will be in the form of database tables. Each column will have a field title and each column will also have a specific data type designed to the column. For instance, when the field data type is in a date format, one will not be able to type in text in that specific field.

Our current generation’s consoles are surely nearing the end of their reign, this year the Xbox 360 will be celebrating its 7th year anniversary, the PS3 and Nintendo Wii, their 6th. However, the only new home console that has been announced was by Nintendo in 2011 at the E3 convention where they unveiled the Nintendo Wii U set for release in the fall of 2012. The current generation of consoles have changed a great deal from their initial launches over 6 years ago.

Xbox 360 Comparisons

The Original Xbox in 2005 was released with a A280 price tag. It was infamous for its red-ring-of-death problems. It was the first console that supported HD graphics but the HD was provided by a composite cable as it didn’t have HDMI. It also came with a 20GB hard drive and no internal Wi-Fi but instead a A50 USB dongle had to be purchased. When released, Microsoft only shipped 300 thousand units to Europe and stock was extremely short, the console sold out instantly and many Xbox 360s made their way onto auction sites to be sold for over double the RRP!
