    What is this computer component?

    • A.

      RAM  

    • B.

      CPU 

    • C.

      Hard Disk 

    • D.

      Motherboard 

    Correct Answer
    A. RAM  
    Explanation
    RAM stands for Random Access Memory, which is a computer component responsible for temporarily storing data that the computer is actively using. It provides quick access to data, allowing the CPU to retrieve and process information quickly. Unlike the hard disk, which stores data permanently, RAM is volatile and loses its contents when the computer is powered off. The motherboard is the main circuit board that connects all the components of a computer, and the CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the "brain" of the computer, responsible for executing instructions and performing calculations.

    D. Whether the drive should be indexed. E.
    Explanation
    In Windows XP, Disk Management allows users to view three disk properties. Firstly, users can view the used and available disk space, which provides information about the amount of storage being utilized and the amount of storage that is still available. Secondly, users can view the compression that has been applied to the drive, which indicates whether the drive has been compressed to save disk space. Lastly, users can view whether the drive should be indexed, which determines whether the drive's contents should be included in the search index.

      The Device Manager can identify resource conflicts.

    • B.

      The Device Manager will identify out-of-date drivers.

    • C.

      The Device Manager can identify devices that are not functioning

    C. The Device Manager can identify devices that are not functioning
    D. The Device Manager will remove identify and remove conflicting devices
    Explanation
    The Device Manager can identify resource conflicts by detecting if two or more devices are trying to use the same resources, such as the same IRQ or memory address. This can help troubleshoot issues that arise from resource conflicts.

    The Device Manager can identify devices that are not functioning properly by displaying a yellow exclamation mark or a red X next to the device. This indicates that there is a problem with the device driver or the device itself.

    The Device Manager can remove and identify conflicting devices by allowing the user to disable or uninstall devices that are causing conflicts. This can help resolve issues caused by incompatible or conflicting devices.

    You are the administrator for a computer that has several hard disks. For optimal performance on this computer, where should the paging file reside?

    • A.

      The paging file should reside on the boot disk

    • B.

      The paging file should reside somewhere on the same physical disk as the operating system 

    • C.

      The paging file should reside on the same partition as the OS 

    • D.

      The paging file should reside on a disk that does not contain the operating system.

    Explanation
    The paging file should reside on a disk that does not contain the operating system because it helps improve performance by reducing disk I/O conflicts. Placing the paging file on a separate disk allows for concurrent read and write operations, preventing the paging file from competing with the operating system and other system files for disk access. This helps to optimize the overall performance of the computer.

    You have updated a device driver for a computer running Windows XP Professional, but you now experience system problems. What should you do to correct the problem?

    • A.

      Restart the computer

    • B.

      Remove the device driver you updated and reinstall it 

    • C.

    You work as a desktop support technician at TecheXams.ws. The TecheXams.ws network consists of a single Active Directory domain named techeXams.ws. You are assigned two workstations named TECHEXAMS-WS625 and TECHEXAMS-WS680. TECHEXAMS-WS625 is configured to run Windows Vista and TECHEXAMS-WS680 is configured to run Windows 7. You receive an instruction to migrate the user files and profiles from TECHEXAMS-WS625 to TECHEXAMS-WS680. To accomplish this you decide to determine the amount space needed to accomplish the migration. What should you do? 

    • A.

      You should consider running Scanstate \\computer1\store /nocompress /p on TECHEXAMSWS680.  

    • B.

      You should consider running Scanstate c:\store /nocompress /p on TECHEXAMS-WS625 

    • C.

      You should consider running Loadstate \\computer1\store /nocompress on TECHEXAMSWS680 

    • D.

      You should consider running Loadstate c:\store /nocompress on TECHEXAMS-WS625.

    Correct Answer
    B. You should consider running Scanstate c:\store /nocompress /p on TECHEXAMS-WS625 
    Explanation
    To determine the amount of space needed to migrate user files and profiles from TECHEXAMS-WS625 to TECHEXAMS-WS680, you should consider running Scanstate c:\store /nocompress /p on TECHEXAMS-WS625. Scanstate is a command-line tool used to capture user profiles, files, and settings during the migration process. By running Scanstate with the specified parameters, you can create a store that contains all the necessary data for the migration. The /nocompress parameter ensures that the data is not compressed, and the /p parameter estimates the space required for the migration.

      None of the above. 

    Correct Answer
    B. A computer network tool used to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network; it is also used to self test the Network Interface Card (NIC) of the computer.
    Explanation
    The answer is a computer network tool used to test whether a particular host is reachable across an IP network; it is also used to self-test the Network Interface Card (NIC) of the computer. This is because the term "ping" is commonly used in computer networking to refer to the act of sending a network request to a specific IP address and waiting for a response. This helps to determine if the host is reachable and if the NIC is functioning properly.

    Which of the following three statements are true about compressed files? ( Check 3 Answers )

    • A.

      Compressing a folder does not automatically compress the files within it

    • B.

      Encrypted files cannot be compressed  

    • C.

      To change the compression state of a file, the user must have write permissions for the file

    • D.

      When a compressed file is copied to a compressed folder, the copied file is decompressed.

    • E.

      When the user requests a compressed file, he must also request that the system uncompress it.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Compressing a folder does not automatically compress the files within it
    B. Encrypted files cannot be compressed  
    C. To change the compression state of a file, the user must have write permissions for the file
    Explanation
    Compressing a folder does not automatically compress the files within it: This statement is true because compressing a folder only compresses the folder itself, not the individual files within it. Each file needs to be compressed separately.

    Encrypted files cannot be compressed: This statement is true because encryption and compression are two different processes. Encryption is used to protect the data from unauthorized access, while compression reduces the file size. Compressing an encrypted file would not result in any significant reduction in size.

    To change the compression state of a file, the user must have write permissions for the file: This statement is true because changing the compression state of a file involves modifying the file itself. Write permissions are required to make changes to a file, including compressing or decompressing it.
