The checklist allows for a total price to be determined by a computer technician
The checklist assists the technician in accounting for all computer parts that may have been removed or are going to be installed within a computer system.
The checklist documents each and every move that a technician makes while working on a computer and allows the person to review the process of installation or disassembly after the process has been completed.
The American Association of Computer Manufactures requires the checklist so that all computers have the correct parts installed.
Each powered component of a computer system pulls from the power supply. If the supply does not have enough watts to supply power to all components then the system will no function correctly.
The wattage should be matched with the national power standards as in the United states all power supplies should be kept under 200 watts, while in Europe all power supplies must be under 300 watts.
If a power supply has to much power then devices will not function correctly because they will receive to much power.
The lower the wattage the better the power supply will perform with high end computer systems such as gaming PC’s or programming PC’s.
CPU’S are interchangeable on a motherboard
CPU’s only interact with the DIMM and PCI slots on a motherboard
CPU’s must match up with the socket type on a motherboard
CPU’s within the Pentium 2 family of processors use socket 7 on the motherboard for installation
A port used to allow advanced graphic cards to be installed on the motherboard
A module used for memory on a motherboard
A port used to expand the processing power of the CPU
A module used to install extra cards in a motherboard for expansion purposes.
Check the pins on the CPU to ensure they are straight and then with light pressure press the CPU chip into the ZIF socket on the motherboard
Open the leaver on the ZIF socket and then slide the CPU into the uncovered area on the motherboard. Once centered close the leaver to attach the CPU.
Using a set of pliers grab the CPU in the corner next to pin 1 and then place the CPU over the ZIF socket before opening the leaver for installation.
Check the pins on the CPU to ensure they are straight and then locate pin 1 on the chip so that the CPU can be inserted in the correct position.
Memory allows open programs a place to be stored
Memory stores web pages that are currently acessed by the user
Memory allows faster access to open games and other programs if storage space is present
Memory allows for perament storage to occur within the computer system
