The Importance of the Sun Motherboard and Other Computer Parts

Like most products of modern technology, a computer is only as good as the sum of its parts. It may sound like a marketing cliché, but the concept is as true as can be. As technology advances, continuous upgrades of your computer equipment will be necessary to keep up with your new technological needs.  Fortunately, hard to find computer parts like the DELL J8090 Dell 73gb 15k rpm SAS 3.5 Hotswap Hard Drive for PowerEdge 1950 2950 can be found online from reputable suppliers like Code Micro.

Indeed, if you own a computer and it begins to malfunction, your first impulse would be to look for the necessary replacements. Often times this may prove to be challenging, especially if you need a specialized component like a hard drive.

But what is a hard drive anyway; and what makes it so vital to the computer’s function? A hard drive—otherwise known as a hard disk or HDD—is the storage medium for the entire computer’s files and programs; in other words, it is the brain that governs the system. A hard drive malfunction could affect the operational capabilities of the whole system.

Furthermore, hard drives can be damaged by even the slightest handling lapses. Fortunately, replacements can do wonders for your computer, which brings us to another important computer component—the computer memory. The computer memory, or random access memory (RAM), is housed in computer chips mounted onto the motherboard. If applicable, a Sun Memory upgrade can provide your computer with all the additional gigabytes you may need for complex computer processes.

The computer memory, located in a small rectangular chip, will also need to be replaced at some point in time. We would even go so far to say that some computer technicians replace memory chips every time they work on computers to ensure the continued optimum functionality of the system.

Of course, nothing surpasses the importance of the motherboard in your computer system. This is the component which serves as the base to which all other computer components and devices are connected. Should you be interested in having your computer run faster, a Sun Motherboard upgrade is the right move. A new motherboard will have you computer processing information very quickly and will make working on your computer much easier.

The Sun Motherboard and Its Mother Load of Acronyms Demystified

When you look at a motherboard, it’s as if you’re looking at a city block of circuits and electronics. In a way, a motherboard like the Sun Motherboard links every part of the “cyber city” also known as the computer to enable it to function efficiently as a whole unit. Components such as memory cards, processors, and video cards are all attached to the motherboard.

One interesting thing about the motherboard is that it seems to be fond of using acronyms. A normal motherboard has acronyms such as IDE, BIOS, SATA, and PCI in fine print. In fact, you often come across these acronyms in troubleshooting sites or when visiting a computer store. So, what exactly are they?

Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI)

The PCI is a component often overlooked when talking about computers. If not for the PCI, your Call of Duty or Battlefield gaming experience will nowhere be near as good as what is shown in the trailers. Among its chief functions is that it provides the slot in which peripheral devices such as your graphics cards as well as video and sounds connection can be attached.

Basic Input/Output System (BIOS)

Have you noticed that, when you boot up your computer, it makes quick inspections right before starting Windows? That’s the BIOS at work, conducting what is called a power-on self test to see if everything is in working order. An example of a BIO system might be a MOTOROLA MC7090-PK0DCQFA7WR MC7090 TERM:2D WLAN 128/128 TERM QRTY WM5 BT 1X . This system assigns functions to the hardware once the initial power-on self tests have been completed.

Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA)

You see this acronym often associated with hard drives because the SATA pertains to the connector which links the hard drive to the motherboard. Replacing the Enhanced Integrated Drive Electronics (EIDE), the SATA can handle larger amounts of data despite being smaller than the EIDE. Fewer wires means less chance of electrical wires interfering with each other—a happening dubbed as crosstalk in tech lingo.

If ever you are looking for an understanding of Sun Memory or other hard-to-find computer components we can certainly help you at Code Micro. As tech lingo continues to change and components and integrations are upgraded we will be here to help translate the computer talk so that everybody can understand how their computers work.
