  • 25. 

    What one upgrade will make the most difference in computer performace?

    • A.

      Upgrade video card

    • B.

      Bigger hard drive

    • C.

      Increase Memory

    • D.

      New Power Supply

    Correct Answer
    C. Increase Memory
    Explanation
    Increasing memory (RAM) in a computer can significantly improve its performance. RAM is responsible for storing and accessing data that the computer needs to run programs. When the computer runs out of available memory, it starts using the hard drive as virtual memory, which is much slower. By increasing the amount of memory, the computer can store more data in RAM, reducing the need for virtual memory and improving overall performance. This upgrade allows the computer to run more programs simultaneously, handle larger files, and perform tasks more efficiently.

      Press the power button on the monitor

    • B.

      Press the power button on the computer

    Correct Answer
    D. Move the mouse
    Explanation
    When you get to the lab and the monitor is turned off, the first thing you should do is move the mouse. This is because the monitor may be in sleep mode and moving the mouse can wake it up. By moving the mouse, you can check if the monitor responds and if not, then you can proceed to press the power button on the monitor or ask for help. Pressing the power button on the computer or raising your hand for help would be premature without first checking if the monitor can be activated by moving the mouse.
