What is Random Access
For more information please press the link below.The resistive system consists of a normal glass panel that is covered with a conductive and a resistive metallic layer. These two layers are held apart by spacers, and a scratch-resistant layer is placed on top of the whole setup. An electrical current runs through the two layers while the monitor is operational. When a user touches the screen, the two layers make contact in that exact spot. The change in the electrical field is noted and the coordinates of the point of contact are calculated by the computer. Once the coordinates are known, a special driver translates the touch into something that the operating system can understand, much as a computer mouse driver translates a mouse's movements into a click or a drag.
What is the motherboard?
.Desktop motherboards, cases and power supplies all come in different sizes called form factors. All three must be compatible to work properly together.

Most desktop displays use liquid crystal display (LCD) or cathode ray tube (CRT) technology, while nearly all portable computing devices such as laptop incorporate LCD technology. Because of their slimmer design and lower energy consumption, monitors using LCD technology (also called flat panel or flat screen displays) are replacing the venerable CRT on most desktops.

This site will show you all the parts of a computer that I have not mentioned on this page .
Erin Matthews - Lots of information, videos are good:)
Emma Foster - very detailed but not sure you understand what you have written. i'm certain its not you own work, i think its wikipedias :)
Molly Flaherty - Good, one thing is when you are talking about input and output you have spelt input as imput :)
Emily Rogers - Great balence of videos pitures and information
Lucy Holmes - Good videos and pictures and lots of good description :)
