NT1110 Computer Structure and Logic Chapter 6: Memory and Storage 1. A computer storage location that allows information to be stored and accessed quickly from random locations within the DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) on a memory module. 2. A page file is stored on the computer hard drive that is used as a temporary location to store information that is not currently being used by the computer RAM. 3.
-1024KB*120=122880 122880KB*1024=125829120B Exercise 1.3.4 Given a computer with a disk capacity of 16 GB and a word size of 32 bits, how many words can be stored on the disk? Show your calculations. -16*1024MB=16384MB -16384MB*1024KB=16777216KB -16777216KB*1024B=1.71798918E10 -1.7179891E10/32=536870912 words Exercise 1.3.5 Represent the binary value 110110 2 in hexadecimal. Show the steps of conversion that you used. -0011 0110 0011 represents 3 0110 represents 6 - 36 Exercise 1.3.6 Represent the hexadecimal value f6 16 in binary and decimal.

This type of caching is applied to all disk content, not just the page file but the computer's overall performance is boosted. To use ready boost perform the following steps. Click Start, and then click Computer. Right-click the USB flash device in the Devices with Removable Storage list, and then choose Properties. On the ReadyBoost tab, select Use This Device, and then click OK. For USB flash devices that do not support ReadyBoost, you cannot enable the device.
Unit 1 Assignment 1 Why is the CPU the most important component in a computer? The CPU is the part of the computer that actually runs the programs What number does a bit that is turned on represent? What number does a bit that is turned off represent? 1 represents a bit that is turned ON. 0 represents a bit that is turned OFF What would you call a device that works with binary data?
The bit rate is 2000 bits per second (2000 bps). Which of the following is true on this circuit? d 5. Two nodes use an encoding scheme that cannot use one circuit to both send and receive data at the same time. The link physically contains two wires.
They allow 16,384 networks by using the first two octets in the address for the network identification. The first two bits of the first octet are fixed to 1 0. The next 6 bits along with the following octet then complete the network identification. The third and fourth octet (16 bits) then represents the host ID. This allows approximately 65,000 hosts per network.
RAM is used for temporary storage of data and that data erased after exiting software or rebooting or turning off the computer. Hard disk is permanent storage device for the computer. (Ingberg, 2009) DVD drive is another component that is important for you to install software or store data to a CD or DVD disk. (Ingberg, 2009) There are different types of hardware. There is the
