    Is this a question from your HNC/HND Computer Architecture Module ? If so, where are your notes? ------ pm me with what you have for submission so far, and we'll see if you are on the right track.

    Nip down to the library and have a look at the latest Bigelow's Computer Maintenance & Repair Manual. Although it is a troubleshooting guide, it is pretty good at explaining how things work.

    Google for "how things work"..... I think the website is still around? then search the site for the items you are interested in. Their articles go into a bit more detail (usually) but are not product or OS specific (unless relevant)

    Cheers
