Transcript of Computer Terms To Know

Hardware Software Output device Input Devices Mother Board Peripherals Power Supply Ram Video Card CPU Hardware is a general term for the physical artifacts of a technology An input device is any peripheral (piece of computer hardware equipment) used to provide data and control signals to an information processing system (such as a computer). In personal computers, a motherboard is the central printed circuit board (PCB) in many modern computers and holds many of the crucial components of the system, while providing connectors for other peripherals. A power supply unit (PSU) is the component that supplies power to the other components in a computer Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of computer data storage. The central processing unit (CPU) is the portion of a computer system that carries out the instructions of a computer program, and is the primary element carrying out the computer's functions. A video card, video adapter, graphics accelerator card, display adapter, or graphics card is an expansion card whose function is to generate output images to a display. A peripheral is a device attached to a host computer, but not part of it, and is more or less dependent on the host. It expands the host's capabilities, but does not form part of the core computer architecture.

Computer software, or just software, is a collection of computer programs and related data that provide the instructions telling a computer what to do and how to do it. An output device is any piece of computer hardware equipment used to communicate the results of data processing carried out by an information processing system (such as a computer) to the outside world.
