There are many components in a computer. In order to understand how a computer works, one must know the basic components. Open the case and look at all the gizmos. There are 4 basic parts to a computer (PC): CPU- Central Processing Unit GPU- Graphics Processing Unit PSU- Power Supply Unit Memory- Temporarily stores data from the hard disks Without these components, the computer will not function normally.
There are other devices that can be attached to the PC. CDROMs, Hard Disks, Floppy Disks, Sound Cards, TV tuner cards, mice, keyboards, NICs (network interface card), and USB cards. The devices are not needed to make the PC run.
Let's trace a packet of data from power on to it's final destination, the monitor. First, the packet is stored on the hard disk. It goes from the hard disk through the ribbon cable, which connects the hard disk to the motherboard, then to the memory. From the memory, it travels through the FSB (Front Side Bus) to the cache on the CPU. There, it waits until it is needed by the CPU. When it's needed, it goes to the GPU which in turn generates an image that goes to the monitor. Seem like a lot? Computers are not simple, ever.

Yes, they work for home computers.
We use computers a lot for work and playing our favorite games. I think about 75% of America depends on computers for work.

Computers usually work on electricity.
It is a matter of opinion if Apple computers work better then Windows computers. I personally feel Windows computers run for longer and are compatible with more programs that can be downloaded or installed.

Computers primarilary work with the Binary numbering system (0 and 1) which is known as Base 2.
Most computers are in offices, but computers are also in homes. Computer technicians go where the computers are.
computers yesterday is too old and explodes to much. computers today are too new and will not work properly.
it fixes computers and helps them to be good and work well and they program the computers to
Both refurbished and new computers work the same, but new have never been used and might work better.
So that they know how computers work will be able to more easily learn how the computers of the future will work.
There are millions of people who understand computers. This comes from the growing age of needing to understand how computers work.
For most digital computers at the lowest level, they work in binary. Experimental multilevel computers have been built and analogue computers don't work in binary.
No they for work all computers that have windows XP or higher.
no one is harmed making computers but its very hard work.
