I am currently operating on Windows 7 Professional I also currently have service pack 1 installed for my operating system. Windows 7 has features that simplify computer security it makes it easier for you to reduce the risk of damage caused by viruses, spyware and other malware. It also improved a backup solution to help keep information safe. My Operating system also has a new enhancement feature which allows you to see the icons larger on the task bar. You basically get a sneak peek of what that window contains so you don’t have to click open each icon to find out what they contain. Another Cool feature Windows 7 has is the ability of resizing the screens that are open on your desktop. You can maximize a window by dragging its border to the top of the screen, and you can minimize it as well by dragging its border away from the top of the screen. The feature that I love the most is being able to switch my screen’s view, as a duplicate of extended. I will usually use the extended feature when my kids want to watch a movie, so they can watch the movie without being bothered by what I am working on. The only times I use a duplicate is when I am not working on anything and I relax and enjoy the movie on the projector with my kids. Lastly Windows 7 has a Problem Steps Recorder option so you can capture steps that you take on your computer including text descriptions of where you click your mouse and a picture of the screen during each click. After you troubleshoot the issue you can save it in a file so that it is easy for you to find to help you solve future trouble shooting issues.
I currently have a processor with the speed of 3.30GHz, and it has 4GB of RAM space. My computer also has a capacity of 446GB of disk space, and I currently have 367 GB of free space.

I can update my current operating system to a previous version. Before doing so I would strongly…...

...NT1110 Unit 6 Research 1: Network Attached Storage 1. What happens when you combine a hard drive and a network adapter is called NAS (Network System Storage). Network-attached storage (NAS) is a dedicated hard disk storage device that is set up with its own network address and provides file-based data storage services to other devices on the network. 2. NAS devices come in many varieties depending on if you build it yourself or purchase a vendor product. The speed is typically one gigabit Ethernet connection but this can be changed to multiple gigabit, 10 gigabit, fiber optic by adding a pci-e network card(s). Older parts can be used which may be limited to 10/100 megabit. If you need an exact answer for speed, simply look at the wiki on gigabit. The capacity range again varies; people have built 40 TB machines and other just have 2TB. With port replication and add-on hard drive controller cards there is hardly a limit on size. A board with 6 sata ports can be replicated (1 to 5 port) allowing for 30 drives to be attached, if 3TB drives were used in raid 50 that would be 72TB of storage. As far as fault tolerance, raid 50 is fairly stable if set up correctly, raid 10 has been touted as one of the best setups since more drives can fail at one time without data loss. All of those features can be used on typical NAS devices. 3....

Which ones are not necessary for normal day-to- day use and why? Necessary devices used on a personal computer keyboard, for typing or telling the computer what to do. Monitor, for seeing all the information you type in, watching videos ect… Speakers for listening music and watching videos. Now a days we often use USB ports for just about everything, storing information from one device to a desk top up to a laptop. Also charging our electric devices, as well as storing information into USB cards. Not necessary I/O for a personal computer can be printer, scanner, web cam. * Why a modem is considered an I/O device? The reason Is it sends and retrieves data usually at the same time. * Though a printer is an essential I/O device, can you think of why it may be also classified as an input device? If It is a combination of printer/fax/scanner it could be both. When it is printing it’s an output device. When scanning it is an input device. [Type the abstract of the document here.

...Shondrick Stephens NT1110 Unit 10 Research Project Identity Theft “But he that filches from me my good name/ Robs me of that which not enriches him/ And make me poor indeed.” Shakespeare, Othello, Act 3 Scene 3 For as long as people have created civilizations there has been some sort of identity theft. Identity theft is when someone wrongfully obtains and uses another person’s personal data in some way that involves fraud or deception, usually for economic gain. Your name, birth date, address, Social Security number, your bank account or credit card number, your telephone calling card number, and other valuable identifying data can be used, for identity theft if they were to fall in the wrong hand, for personal profit at your expense. That bad part is that in the past it was not even a crime. In October 30, 1998 through the enactment of the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act of 1998, 18 USC & 1028 (a) (7). This Act states that identity theft occurs when a person: “knowingly transfers or uses, without lawful authority, a means of identification of another person with the intent to commit, or to aid or abet, any unlawful activity that constitutes a violation of Federal law, or that constitutes a felony under any applicable State or local law.” There are several ways a thief can steal your identity. And there are also just as many way to...

...NT1110 Homework 3 USB 3.1 The new USB 3.1 Super Speed specification has been finalized by the USB Promoter Group, allowing manufacturers to begin building devices that can communicate at a blistering 10 Gb/s. The new USB Super Speed standard has been given its official designation - USB 3.1 - and doubles the possible throughput of a USB connection from 5Gb/s to 10Gb/s. As you might expect from a USB standard, backwards compatibility is also confirmed for previous USB devices - which will, naturally, run at their usual, slower speed even when connected to a USB 3.1 port. The specification team worked hard to make sure that the changes made to support higher speeds were limited and remained consistent with existing USB 3.0 architecture to ease product development. The move to push 10Gb/s through USB connections is believed to have been a response to the threat of Thunderbolt technology developed by Apple and Intel. First seen on Apple's own products, and now trickling out into the mainstream PC world, Thunderbolt offered 10Gb/s - but shortly after the USB Promoter Group announced that USB would match that speed, Intel announced the Falcon Ridge controller which doubles Thunderbolt's throughput to 20Gb/s. In both cases, the peak performance is theoretical: actual real-world transfer rates will depend on cable quality and length, chipset and bus limitations and a myriad of other factors. Nevertheless, both provide the potential for vastly improved transfer rates when......

...NT1110 Computer Structure and Logic Module 2 Short Answer 2.1 I/O Devices Professor Mo Suleiman I/O Devices An I/O device is defined as “any of various devices (including sensors) used to enter information and instructions into a computer for storage or processing and to deliver the processed data to a human operator or, in some cases, a machine controlled by the computer.” (Britannica, 2014) With that information presented, the critical I/O devices needed for the computer are a mouse and keyboard. They are both necessary because they are input devices. The mouse allows the user to tell the computer what program to open, while the keyboard is used for allowing the user to input information in a language the user and computer understands to carry it out. The monitor and printer are output devices. There are a different types of both. The traditional output device of a personal computer has been the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitor. Just like a television set (an older one, anyway) the CRT monitor contains “a large cathode ray tube that uses an electron beam of varying strength”. (Computer Terminology) The monitor displays the video signal produced by a part within the computer. Thus then you have picture. A modem is classified as a Input and output devices because of what it does for the computer. It transmits and receives information, therefore is a input AND output. The printer as well can do this if it’s a fax machine built together with it. The Printer......

...NT1110 Computer Structure and Logic Short Answer 2.1 Input/Output Devices Professor Mo Suleiman October 4, 2014 In the wonderful world of computers, we need to tools to communicate with a computer. Of course, a base foundation is the Operating System. However, we do need tools that will allow end users to streamline a computer’s full potential and functionality. That is where input and output devices come into play. In computing, input and output devices refers to the way we as end users communicate with a computer. Input is defined as a way the data or information sent to a system, as in typing something on a keyboard. Outputs are the signals sent by the computer system to the outside end user. An input device is a piece of hardware that transfers information or data in the world for consumption from an end user to a computer. Critical input devices needed to communicate with a computer are a keyboard, and mouse. A keyboard is the sole way to input keys, or command instructions to a computer. Without a keyboard, a computer is useless to an end user. Another critical input device is a mouse. A mouse is a click and point device used to manipulate GUI interfaces within an operating system. A mouse is not necessary in sole computer programming, but in order to manipulate GUI based operating systems and programs, a mouse is needed to communicate to a computer. An output device is a piece of hardware a computer uses to communicate the results of data......

...Nt1110 Research Paper Unit 4 Port Expanders Unit 4 Research Paper 1: Port Expanders. A Port Expander is a hardware device that allows a user to use more than one device on a single port. A good example of a port expander is a USB hub. Most USB hubs allow you to hook up 3 to 5 USB connections from only 1 USB port on your computer. The disadvantage of using a port expander is speed. The single port you are connecting to only operates at a set speed; example of this is a USB 2.0 port operates at 480 Mbit/s. If you have a portable hard drive that runs at 300 Mbit/s and a digital camera running at 180 Mbit/s that leaves 0 Mbit/s left for any other USB device on the USB hub; you could run into a bottleneck situation if you are trying to run another device at the same time. I have used several USB hubs in the past and they seemed to work really well for me. I was not using all devices I had plugged into the hub at the same time. I found it was a lot easier than plugging and unplugging devices all the time just to plug in another device. There are some advantages of using a port expander. It is generally cheaper running a port expander than to actually buying “real” ports. Port expanders are generally computer specific, however there are exceptions to that rule. USB hubs only require that a USB port is available for the hub to plug into. A port expander is also known as a port replicator. Port replicators do not add new hardware to the computer. It provides a physical connection......

...Frank Williams 04/05/2015 Ms. Easterling NT1110 In the video, it talked about the different ports on a computer. The Serial port transmits data one bit at a time. It usually is a male port with 9 or 25 pins. The Parallel port transmits data 8 bits at a time. It is usually a female port with 25 pins. The game port is usually female with 15 pins and two rows. The mouse and keyboard ports are used to access the mouse and keyboard. On older computers the mouse and keyboard used PS/2 connectors. All the ports have been replaced by USB ports. There are two types of USB ports, the USB1 which is 56 kbps and cord length of 3 meters. The USB2 which is 480 mbps and cord length of 5 meters. The USB can control up to 127 devices. The NIC (Network Interface Card) is responsible for connecting computer to the Internet. The VGA, DVI, S-video all are used to connect video. There are two types of monitors, the CRT monitor and the LCD monitor. The CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) monitor is usually big and bulky. The LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) monitors are thin and use TFT (Thin Film transistors). The Standard Resolution is 640 x 480, 800 x 600, 1024 x 768. The Native Resolutions are XGA – 1024x768, SXGA – 1280x1024, UXGA – 1600x1200, and WUXGA – 1920x1200.

TASK Make a report on the Windows Control Panel with screen shots and your experience with control panel. The Control Panel for Windows7 on a Network Control Panel for a PC Control Panel The Control Panel is a part of the Microsoft Windows graphical user interface which allows users to view and manipulate basic system settings and controls via applets, such as adding hardware, adding and removing software, controlling user accounts, and changing accessibility options. Additional applets can be provided by third party software. The Control Panel has been an inherent part of the Microsoft Windows operating system since Windows 2.0, with many of the current applets being added in later versions. Beginning with Windows 95, the Control Panel is implemented as a special folder, i.e. the folder does not physically exist, but only contains shortcuts to various applets such as Add or Remove Programs and Internet Options. Physically, these applets are stored as .cpl files. For example, the Add or Remove Programs applet is stored under the name appwiz.cpl in the SYSTEM32 folder. In recent versions of Windows, the Control Panel has two views, Classic View and Category View, and it is possible to switch between these through an option that appears on either the left side or top of the window.

...Janna Bedell NT1110 Unit 7 Research paper 3 The first high-volume applications for CMOS circuits emerged in battery-operated consumer products such as digital watches (1974 Milestone) and portable instruments that did not demand the ultimate in speed. By 1978, when Toshiaki Masuhara of Hitachi described a high-speed RAM at ISSCC, the combination of smaller lithography with the silicon-gate process enabled CMOS to compete in performance with bipolar and conventional MOS. As designers took advantage of scaling (1974 Milestone) to pack hundreds of thousands of transistors onto a chip, CMOS provided the best solution to manage the resulting power density issues. (Museum, 2007) The size of the CMOS memory has also pretty much stayed the same because there is no need to increase the size. There was never any need to store more than 512 bytes in the memory as it holds the absolute basic boot settings for the system. The typical size is still 512 bytes currently. All it comes down to is “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”, so it’s been that way since almost the very beginning. It does its job which is to just get the computer started and make sure everything is in place and then hands it all over to the computers OS. A small battery on the computer's motherboard provides the CMOS with constant power. Most computers use a 3-volt CR2032 coin cell, which can last for a number of years, depending on factors such as temperature, and the amount of time the computer is without power....
