I am going to write about drives, monitors, CPU's, Ram/Rom, Motherboards, Inputs/Outputs and Touch Screens which are all parts of a computer.


Computer hardware is the parts of a computer that you can physically touch, such as the monitor, mouse, keyboard, the hard disk drive and more things that make up a computer.

Computer Drives and Monitors

Drives are a software that allows your computer to communicate with hardware or devices. Without drives, the hardware you connect to your computer, a video card or a webcam will not work the way it should.

A monitor is an electronic screen that shows a picture, like a television in many ways.


These are the parts of a computer where operations and things are controlled. CPU stands for central processing unit. It is an electronic circuit that carries out the instructions of a computer programme. By using maths, logic, control and input/output.
