All Parts of a Computer Technical White Paper

All Parts of a Computer Technical White Paper There are several components of computer which is listed as: The Mother Board, CPU, SMPS, RAM, Hard Disk Drive (HDD), Floppy Disk Drive (FDD), CD ROM Drive, CD Writer, AGP Card, and LAN Card. This PowerPoint presentation consists of the images of different parts of a computer. Let’s have a brief discussion on each part.

In PCs, a motherboard is the central printed circuit board (PCB). It holds various crucial components of the system. It provides connectors for other peripherals. The motherboard is sometimes called the mainboard, system board, or the logic board. It is a big communication highway.

From the image, the motherboard connections can be seen. It contains expansion slots like ISA, PCI, AGP and DIMM sockets. It also contains external connections for sound card, USB ports, Serial and Parallel ports, PS/2 ports for keyboard and mouse as well as network and Firewire connections. Hence the motherboard has a massive role to play in PC performance.

There are different ports which are on the front view, such as, Mouse port, Ethernet port, parallel port, Game port, keyboard port, serial port, USB port, VGA port, and sound port.

Random-access memory (RAM) is data storage in a computer. It is the form of integrated circuits which allow stored data to be accessed. A switched-mode power supply (SMPS) is an electronic power supply. It incorporates a switching regulator for conversion electrical power. It transfers power from electrical power grid to a load i.e., PC.

This PowerPoint describes about peripheral power connector, floppy power, speed of a CDD which is expressed as 52X = 52 x 150 kbps = 7800kbps, AGP card. The hard disk drive (HDD is a non-volatile, random access digital magnetic data storage device. Other parts of computer are LAN card, cables, floppy drive cable, IDE cables, 40 conductor cable, and 80 conductor cables.


It is concluded that these main parts of computer help in the processing of computer. Each part has its own functionality. These components provide different functions in a computer like data storage, power connectors, drivers, CD, etc.
