The Computer System
Targetted students: A+ Trained Technicians
Case study: “Where is the sound coming from?”
If your answer is ” hard drive” then you are good to go. But if your answer is “computer” then. . .its ok.
Frankly, I preferred the hard drive answer. Why? Go and research! I have no time to explain. A+ Trained Technicians should know the concept, if not then review the basic.
What part of the computer is making the noise and why? Think like a technician.
Sample answer: The hard drive is making the noise especially when retrieving data/files/information needed at the moment. But when the data are already cached, the hard drive is typically quite. The 4 gigs RAM (4, 000 megabytes) should be attributed after the facts.
Recommendation: Time to backup all important files.
What type of back up do you recommend?
