This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it re-enforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. EEPROM - Chace - RAM

2. Hard disk drives can be used for recording digital video images and can be built into the camera or attached to the outside of the camera - it is the primary memory unit

3. Microprocessors in a computer - it activates programs in a computer

4. A motherboard that became the default standard for many businesses to copy with permission

5. A tool used to permanently attach pieces of equipment to a motherboard

6. A miniature circuit board used in newer computers to hold memory. called Dual Line Memory modulo

7. The most common form factor for PC systems presently in use. ATX motherboards and cases make better use of space and resources than did the AT form factor.

8. This is when tracers work together

9. Audio modem riser

10. It is the smaller version of an ATX. It can be used in an ATX case - but using lower wattage for heat production.

11. Peripheral Component Interconnect

12. Memory modules (DIMMs) on the motherboard.

13. Communication network riser

14. A Expansion card - that allows better graphics

15. Technology uses battery power to retain information even when the power to the computer is turned off.

16. Contain circuits that all allows it to 'Talk' to the MB

17. Component of the chipset that allows the CPU to communicate with the hard drives - sound card - USB ports - and other I/O ports.

18. Also called Advance technology - it was a motherboard that sent PC computers booming - this was created in 1983

19. Serial ATA (Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) is a new standard for connecting hard drives into computer systems

20. Parallel ATA interface also called also EIDE - IDE - and ATAPI. SATA is faster.

21. Older form factor used for slimline desktop- style computers. Does NOT have expansion slots and uses a riser card instead of a system board. also known as daughterboard

22. The latest form factor expected to replace ATX. It has higher quality fans - is designed for better air flow - and has improved structural support for the motherboard.

23. On a motherboard - the type and location of components - as well as the size of the board itself. (1)

24. It means updating it.

25. A coded program that is executed when the computer system is first turned on the provides low- level access to the hard disk - video - and keyboard.

26. Component of the chipset that controls access to the RAM - videocard - and the speeds at which the CPU can communicate with them.

27. Used to connect pieces of the motherboard together with this wire

28. This is used to connect the mother board and the CPU together

29. The most common computer memory which can be used by programs to perform necessary tasks while the computer is on


31. Universal asynchronous receiver transmitter

32. Smaller than the PATA bus allows better cool down

33. A circuit board that contains all of the computer system's main components.
