Best Computer Hardware Interview Questions Part – 2
What Are The Differences Between Intel Celeron And Pentium Family Of Processors?
According to Build Gaming Computers, Celeron processors are the low-end processor intended for standard home computer use. SciNet reports the best Celeron processor has an L2 Cache of 128kb, a clock speed limit of about 2.0 GHz and runs at a core voltage of 1.75V. These are useful numbers for comparison.
The top Pentium processor is the Pentium 4 Prescott. CPU Scorecard reports it has an L2 cache of 1MB (1024kb), a potential 3.0 GHz clock speed and runs at about 1.4V. The lowest performing Pentium 4 processor, the Willamette, has an L2 cache of 256kb, a potential 2.0 GHz clock speed and runs at about 1.7V.
What Is Hyper Threading? What Is The Use Of It?
A thread of execution, or simply a “thread,” is one series of instructions sent to the CPU. Hyper-threading is a technology developed to help make better use of spare processing cycles. Hyper-threaded processors have a duplicate set of registers, small spaces of high-speed memory storage used to hold the data that is currently needed to execute a thread.
When a CPU core is delayed, waiting for data to be retrieved from another place in memory, it can use these duplicate registers to spend the spare computation cycles executing a different thread. The second set of registers will be pre-loaded with the data needed to execute the second thread, so the CPU core can begin work immediately
What Is Intel Atom Processor?
The Intel Atom family of processors are extremely small central processing units (CPU) found mostly in ultraportable devices, such as netbooks, cell phones and tablet PCs, according to Intel. While small and light on energy use, Atom processors can handle the most common tasks, such as email and instant messaging.

What Is Heat Sink? What Is Its Use? If It Is Not In The System What Will Happen?
A heat sink is a component used to lower the temperature of a device.It is most commonly there on the microprocessor. If it is not properly fixed the system, the system will shutdown automatically to prevent further damage to the processor.
A Cpu Fan Should Be Placed In System. Why?
To make the system cool and more functioning.
What Are The Causes Of Overheating Of Microprocessor?
a) Processor fan may not be properly connected.
b) Heat sink may be not contacted with the processor.
c) Jumpers may be configured to over clock the CPU.
d) Voltage supply incompatible
No Display. What Is The Problem?
a) CPU fan problem
b) Heat sink related issue
c) Power related issues
d) Improper Jumper settings
What Is The Use Of Conventional Memory In The System?
The size of conventional memory is 640KB. It is also called DOS memory or Base memory. This memory is used by some small programs like Word star, Lotus etc…DOS cannot use more than 640KB.
What Is Main Memory In A Computer?
The main memory in a computer is called Random Access Memory. It is also known as RAM. This is the part of the computer that stores operating system software, software applications and other information for the central processing unit (CPU) to have fast and direct access when needed to perform tasks.
What Are The Different Types Of Ram?
SRAM, DRAM, VRAM, SGRAM, DDR-SDRAM etc….
