5th step of troubleshooting Step 5 a. Verify full system functionality and, if applicable, implement preventative measures. 6th step of troubleshooting Step 6 a. Document findings, actions, and outcomes. i. Expansion slots 1. Motherboards use expansion slots to provide support for additional I/ O devices and high- speed video/ graphics cards 2. Types of expansion slots PCI slot PCI-X AGP j. Processors 1. Processor made by Intel LGA a. All these sockets use the land grid array (LGA) design. The LGA design uses spring-loaded lands in the processor socket that connect to bumps on the backside of the processor. k. Memory (main and cache) 1. Main memory Also know as RAM used for programs and data, and by the OS for disk caching. 2. Cache Memory Cache memory Cache memory improves system performance by enabling the processor to reuse recently retrieved memory locations without needing to fetch them from main memory. a. Levels of cache Level 1 (L1) i. cache is built in to the processor core. b. Level 2 (L2) i. cache is also built in to the processor die. c. Level 3 (L3) i. cache is found on some high-performance processors from Intel (such as the Core i7 series) and on several high-performance and mid-level processors from AMD. l. Types of CPU sockets m. Types of I/O ports USB IEEE-1394 (FireWire) SCSI COM (Serial) LPT (Parallel)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
