Computer Software and Hardware Basic Knowledge




Basic

Computer software is what allows people to do what they need to accomplish in their everyday activities. A more complicate definition of a computer software is; Software is a program that enables a computer to perform a specific task, as opposed to the physical elements of the system. The physical elements of the system were what I have talked about in the last post, the actual hardware that a person can physically touch.

The most shared software that people know of is the operating system. Operating system is a system software that allows other software of your choosing to be ran properly. The operating system is the middle man to interacting between the hardware and the other software. The software that you want to install should be loaded onto a hard excursion, or memory RAM. After the software is loaded on either of these two data platforms, the computer can execute the software.

People have many different software that allows them to do many different responsibilities. For example, the Microsoft information program allows you to kind up papers, and create templates. It’s a kind of software that you should have, because it allows you to complete more complicate responsibilities in one identify, instead of going to different many places. This is what people back in the day have done, and it is fun seeing how software keeps on transforming tech world today. Software allows us to create an easier way to complete things, and it can be found in many of the technologies today, and not just the computers.

Computers are not just hardware equipment, but it’s something that I will be discussing today. There are many different types of computer hardware, and all together, the hardware you use makes up your complete working system. Some of the more shared hardware that people are aware of are CD-ROM excursion, which allows for a computer to read specific information located on a CD, and the FLOPPY disk excursion, which is a much older hardware, allows people to merely do the same exact thing as CD, but in a less sufficient way. These two are more known to people because these two hardware pieces that people interact with the most.

Some of other big hardware items are, Hard Drives, Memory (RAM), Motherboard, strength Supply, and Central Processing Unit (CPU). Hard excursion is a non-volatile memory device that allows you to save information in spite of whether the strength is on or off. You can permanently save information on a hard excursion, and then retrieve it whenever you want. The memory, also called RAM, also is there to store information both permanently and temporarily. RAM interact with majority of the operating system software which I will later talk about. The motherboard connects everything together, and allows for all the hardware to communicate sort of speak. Motherboard is the foundation of the computer and is a vital piece of making the computer work. It takes strength from the strength Supply and powers the CPU, and other elements such as RAM.

The computer consists of more than these things, but these are some of the major ones that I felt that you should know. Next time I will be talking about computer software.
