We all know about computers. The computer consists of multitude of large to minute parts. As much as the knowledge abut the computers is necessary, so as it is essential to know about the various computer parts too. It is because, your whole computer may crash sometime due to not knowing properly about the different computer parts and its functions resulting in its mishandling. That is why, a general idea on the various computer parts is necessary. Your knowledge on the computer parts will help you to gain knowledge on the functioning of the computer system and thus will help you in its operability. In other words, it will help you to work on your computer more efficiently while deriving the best out of your system.
To know about the computer parts, you need not open your whole system apart and start doing the anatomical study on it. I am going to suggest and easy way out to do the same. This article will give you a brief idea on the various parts of the computer system that you can identify with easily. You might already know the names of these computer parts then you can look out what purpose they serve in your system. So, let us get a holistic view of the various parts of a computer.
To tell you in very few and concise words, the computer system has basically two parts, the hardware and the software. Software is the programming part which is fed on the computer to operate different functions. Anything that makes a physically appearance in the system and consists of the bulk of it is the hardware. The hardware is the one which contains the A to Z of the computer parts. The first to name is the Central Processing Unit (CPU) which in itself is a composition of certain parts which I will mention at a later stage of this article. Then there are the output and the input devices. The numbers of output and input devices are quite large. The common input devices range from the keyboard to joystick, scanner and to the graphic tablets and many more. Similarly, in the output devices we can name the monitor, the projector and the printer are of common use.
As I have mentioned earlier in this article that the CPU itself is an integration of several parts. So let us have a look on these too. Processor, PCB, Motherboard and the CPU fans are the things that the CPU consists of. It consists of the hard disk, and the Random Access Memory (RAM). The CPU is the one which processes all the signals given to the computer through the input devices and gives out the result through the output devices. Also it stores the data in its memory and allows the user to access it when required. The CPU stores documents as well as media files.
the other parts are mouse, the UPS, the web camera, speakers, headphones etc. Although these are accessories of the computer, but are essential parts of it.
