Is a hard disk essential part of the computer?
Yes, it is one of the most important parts. A hard drive saves everything in your computer, including your operating system which if you don't have you can not proporly boot your computer and will only be able to boot to bios.
No,hard disk is not a peripheral device it is esseintial part of computer
cpu ram hard disk
The 'ON' button, the hard disk...
No, a hard disk drive is not a part of the motherboard. The mother board is the actual processing unit of the cpu. It performs all the operations and calculations etc while the hard disk is the memory storage unit of the computer. The hard disk is where all the pictures, file, movies, documents etc. are stored in the computer. These files are of course accessed by the motherboard as nothing can happen without the… Read More
If you mean where does information gets stored, this would be your hard disk. The part which is saving the information is the read and write head of the hard disk.
What the place in a computer where the programs and data the computer is currently using are stored?
The Main Memory, For the most part this is the internal hard-disk of a computer.
a hard disk is a disk inside the hard drive that stores information. A computer's hard disk, or hard drive, is not a part of or mounted on the motherboard, or any of the computer's circuit boards. The drive is installed into some part of the frame within the computer. Its location is not important, because the user does not have to physically access the drive. The hard drive does, however, have a data connection… Read More
storage memory, e.g. a hard drive (they are usually disk drives)
this is most important part of computer's is help to work computer.
What computer part retains the information it is storing when the power to the system is turned off?
Non-volatile memory circuits, like flash memory or a magnetic disk. In a personal computer, your work data is stored on the hard disk.
A virus may destroy all data stored in the hard disk by either formatting it without warning or by destroying some of its sectors. A virus may change the boot sector of the hard disk. If the boot sector of a disk is affected, it cannot boot the computer. The computer viruses are automatically loaded into the main memory of the computer and remain in the memory. This slows down the data accessing speed of… Read More
If by "system unit," you mean the main part of the computer, then yes. In the past, all disk controllers were plugged into the motherboard. Nowadays, the motherboards all come with disk controllers, at least for SATA (and sometimes SAS) hard drives.
If you mean "break" as in destroy, yes, by jamming it inside the hard drive or another essential part.
Lynott was part of the team that invented the magnetic disk drive - basically, he helped invent the computer hard drive.
The disk drive
286713 B22 is a computer hard drive. It is universal. The disk speed drive is 10,000rpm. It has a 72.8 maximum capacity. It is made by Hewlett Packard.
Disk 1 is scratched or dirty.
Computers store information in at least two places. Data required for work the computer is currently doing is stored in RAM. Data to be saved is stored on "disk". Disks can be optical or solid state. I'm assuming the one the asker is looking for is the disk. When you save a document, an image, or an mp3 it is stored on your disk, often referred to as a "hard disk".
No, it's not required as part of the computer, it's an optional component
It doesn't actually change the speed of the computer, but it can change how fast the computer 'feels' because while the PC is reading/writing from the hard drive other things are slower. The longer the data takes to read or write, the slower the computer feels. Because of this faster hard drives are often part of performance class machines.
A hard disk drive connects to a EIDE cable. However, many newer computers are replacing the EIDE with the SATA interface.
A hard disk is part of a computer. It is where long term information is stored. So, it saves things like applications, games, saved work, etc.
The disk drive.
There isn't one essential part in a computer the CPU, RAM, Motherboard all are essential. The motherboard connects the CPU and RAM and all the other components in your computer together, you CPU handles all data from the motherboard, and the RAM helps this process. So all the above mentioned parts are essential.
Base casting is mounted on the bottom of a hard drive disk unit. It is part of the intelligent circuit board that is wired there.
The term 'portable disk' refers to portable memory for a computer that is in the shape of a disk, such as a CD, DVD, or floppy disk. (On a floppy disk the disk part is on the inside)
the hard disk
Cabinet The cabinet is the part of your computer that holds all the parts that make the computer operate. Motherboard The motherboard is the part of your computer that wires all of the other parts together. Processor (CPU) The processor, or CPU, of a computer is basically the brains of the computer. Hard Drive The hard drive part of your computer is also called the hard disk. Essentially, it is the part of the computer… Read More
A Bite. That's spelled Byte and it is made up of eight bits. A bit is stored in a flip-flop - or on a hard disk it is a small stretch of iron oxide.
Its Motherboard which hosts Processor, RAM (which are essential part of computer).
The main part is called the HArd disk or magnetic disk because thi sprovides the sound that travels from the iPod, all the way throgh the wores to the head phones. This is the main part because withoud the Hard disk you would never be able to hear only be able to, see.
An example of an obsolete computer part is the Floppy Drive/ Floppy Disk.
with out that devices we can not read the data
They're not part of the computer - they are peripheral devices. Anything that's not permanently attached to a computer is a peripheral. However, a solid state hard drive that acts similarly to a flash drive would be considered a computer component. The RAM and CPU would be considered computer components. If you want to get technical, you could include essential internal peripherals such as a graphic adapter, since they are essential and permanently attached.
The Arithmetical Logical Unit (ALU)
There is no way to remove bad sectors in a hard disk. Those are permanent defects. Windows can only retrieve file and move it to the part of the disk which is healthy. In order to fix files in bad-sectors from your hard disk in Windows Vista and XP go to: -Double-click My Computer (located on the desktop) -Right-click on the C: drive -Click on the Tools tab -Click on the Check Now button -Check… Read More
A file system is used to organize a hard drive. This is part of the operating system that deals with how files are written to and read from the disk, and how the disk is organized.
The sound chip/speakers. You can run a computer fine without a sound system.
Yes It is the part that attached to magnet in HDD.
When you start the computer you will have the hard disk test the computer to make sure it is working properly so when it is working the way it should, you should be looking at the part of the computer most useful to you (either the desktop when Windows is installed or the DOS prompt if MS DOS is installed)
Use a fast computer; or take measures to make your computer faster. For example, close all non-essential programs, do a disk defragmentation, run an antivirus (many viruses will slow down the computer), check open processes to see if anything is running that you don't need.
Disk corruption is the general term used when data stored on the computer is lost due to a mechanical hardware failure. Disk corruption in hard disks is usually due to the disk head crashing into the disk, on which the data is encoded, cause permanent and irreversible loss of data. Also means a part of a file may be partially affected. This makes the particular file 'corrupt' and cannot be used as data will be… Read More
The computer fan and the hard drive
Flash drive, memory card, speakers, Optical drive (CD/DVD)
A power supply gives electrical power to all the components and parts of the computer. The power supply consists on several wires that connect to specific parts of the computer. Examples are the IDE/SATA CD/DVD Drive, IDE/SATA Hard Disk Drive, the motherboard, etc. Power supplies are only a computer part in a desktop computer, NOT a laptop computer.
Actually we usually speak of reformatting the hard drive on the computer. The computer's hard drive is the internal drive that has no removable media. On it will be stored the operating system (such as Windows or Unix), most of the applications (programs) you use, plus all kinds of data files. A hard drive is a disk (or set of disks) with a magnetizable coating on which a recording head can write information. Each kind… Read More
It is inserted into the "A" drive. Most "New" Computers do not have the "A" Drive
Usually the main drive, but it can spread into USB and disk drives.
Use it regularly, as part of a scheduled maintenance program. Keeping your hard-drive de-fragmented will help your computer by keeping files, programs etc ordered on the disc. A good schedule is once a week.
