As we disassemble and rebuild our computers, we will be looking at the subsystems and components that make up a system.
Today we will be cleaning our CPUs, resocketing them, and discussing what a CPU's function is in a computer system, and the impact that it has on performance. As we go along, we will also be labelling a diagram of a "typical" mainboard (you will want to print this out at the start of class).
For homework, TEJ 3E/MI students are asked to read the attached handout on how hard disk drives work. This is due for tomorrow's class.
This will be the on-line binder for TEJ3/4MI
