A computer uses a processor to execute instructions read from ram to move data, do some simple math operations (+,-,*,/), and jump to different instructions, depending on what the data is. A computer can move the data to the monitor, the hard drive or even out into the internet. A computer also reads data from devices, such as a hard drive, mouse, keyboard, and websites on the internet.
