  1. When a computer is being assembled, which action can be taken to help eliminate cable clutter within a computer case?

    • Install a CPU without using a heat sink and fan assembly.
    • Install a 2.5in HDD instead of a 3.5in HDD.
    • Install a modular power supply.
    • Install a motherboard without using standoffs in the case.

      To help eliminate cable clutter within a computer case and provide better air ventilation, it is common to use a modular power supply. Only cables that are needed to power the installed components are connected and used within the case.

  2. What is the best way to apply thermal compound when reseating a CPU?

    • Clean the CPU and the base of the heat sink with isopropyl alcohol before applying the thermal compound.
    • Use rubbing alcohol to clean the base of the heat sink before applying thermal compound.
    • Scrape off the old thermal compound on the heat sink with a sharp knife and apply the thermal compound liberally.
    • Put a thick layer of thermal compound over the existing thermal compound before reseating the CPU.
    • Change the base of the heat sink before applying the thermal compound.

      Isopropyl alcohol should be used to clean both the surface of the heat sink and CPU before reapplication of the thermal compound. Rubbing alcohol should not be used as it contains impurities

  3. A technician is installing additional memory in a computer. How can the technician guarantee that the memory is correctly aligned?

    • The label on the memory module should always face the CPU.
    • A notch in the memory module should be aligned with a notch in the memory slot.
    • The arrows on the memory module should be aligned with the arrows on the motherboard slot.
    • Memory slots are color coded, with one end red and one end blue.
  4. What is used to prevent the motherboard from touching metal portions of the computer case?

    • an I/O shield
    • thermal compound
    • standoffs
    • ZIF sockets

      Screws and standoffs that are non-metallic may be insulators and protect against grounding.

  5. Which statement describes the purpose of an I/O connector plate?

    • It makes the I/O ports of the motherboard available for connection in a variety of computer cases.
    • It plugs into the motherboard and expands the number of available slots for adapter cards.
    • It provides multiple connections for SATA hard drives to connect to the motherboard.
    • It connects the PCIe adapter slots used for video directly to the CPU for faster processing.

      The I/O plate connects to the back of the case and has holes for each of the ports on the motherboard to push through, allowing the motherboard to be used in many different cases regardless of the number of ports on the board or their layout.

  6. What are three important considerations when installing a CPU on a motherboard? (Choose three.)

    • Antistatic precautions are taken.
    • The CPU is correctly aligned and placed in the socket.
    • The CPU contacts are first cleaned with isopropyl alcohol.
    • The CPU heat sink and fan assembly are correctly installed.
    • The CMOS EPROM battery is removed prior to installing the CPU.
    • Maximum insertion force is applied to the load lever so the CPU is locked in place.

      The CPU is sensitive to static discharges. Its pins are very delicate and it works at high temperatures, so precautions must be taken. If the CPU has been used in another machine or if the fan is being replaced, you might need to remove the old thermal compound using isopropyl alcohol (not on the CPU contacts). The battery does not need to be removed from the motherboard during the CPU installation. This would cause the saved BIOS settings to be lost. Minimum force should be needed to lock the CPU load lever into place.

  7. Which type of drive is typically installed in a 5.25 inch (13.34 cm) bay?

    • hard drive
    • optical drive
    • flash drive
    • SSD

      Optical drives are installed in 5.25 inch (13.34 cm) drive bays that are accessed from the front of the case. Flash drives typically connect to USB ports. SSDs and hard drives typically install in a 3.5 inch (8.9 cm) drive bay or a 5.25 inch (13.34 cm) drive bay that is not accessed from the front of the case. If the drive is smaller than the bay, a tray may be purchased.

  8. Which type of motherboard expansion slot has four types ranging from x1 to x16 with each type having a different length of expansion slot?

    • PCIe
    • AGP
    • SATA
    • PCI

      The PCIe, or PCI Express, bus has four types of expansion slots with varying lengths: x1, x4, x8, and x16.

  9. A technician is installing a new high-end video adapter card into an expansion slot on a motherboard. What may be needed to operate this video adapter card?

    • PCI expansion slot
    • PCIe x 8 expansion slot
    • Two 8-pin power connectors
    • 24-pin ATX power connector

      When a high performance video adapter card is used, multiple power connectors may be required. These connectors may each use a 6-pin or 8-pin power connector. Video adapter cards commonly use the PCIe X 16 slot. A 24-pin ATX power connector is used to provide power to the motherboard.

  10. When assembling a PC, how is pin 1 identified on the front panel cables so that it can be aligned properly with pin 1 on the motherboard panel connector?

    • by a small arrow or notch
    • by a plus sign
    • by a P1
    • by a red cable

      Each cable that connects to the front panel connector on the motherboard is marked with a small arrow to identify which pin is pin 1 so that it can be aligned with pin 1 on the panel.

  11. A technician has just finished assembling a new computer. When the computer is powered up for the first time, the POST discovers a problem. How does the POST indicate the error?

    • It issues a number of short beeps.
    • The LED on the front of the computer case flashes a number of times.
    • It places an error message in the BIOS.
    • It locks the keyboard.
  12. What is a function of the BIOS?

    • enables a computer to connect to a network
    • provides temporary data storage for the CPU
    • performs a check on all internal components
    • provides graphic capabilities for games and applications
  13. A technician has assembled a new computer and must now configure the BIOS. At which point must a key be pressed to start the BIOS setup program?

    • before the computer is powered on
    • during the Windows load process
    • during the POST
    • after the POST, but before Windows starts to load

      To enter the BIOS setup program, you must press the proper key or key sequence during POST. Many motherboards will display graphics while the computer is checking hardware and waiting for the proper key press for the user to enter the BIOS.

  14. What data is stored in the CMOS memory chip?

    • BIOS settings
    • Windows configuration settings
    • user login information
    • device drivers

      The complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) chip is a small memory chip located on the motherboard that is used to store saved BIOS settings.

  15. What is the purpose of LoJack?

    • It allows the owner of a device to remotely locate, lock, or delete all files from the device.
    • It ensures that a computer will only boot an operating system that is trusted by the motherboard manufacturer.
    • It provides passwords for different levels of access to the BIOS.
    • It encrypts data on hard drives to prevent access without the correct password.

      The LoJack security feature protects against data theft if a device is stolen by allowing the owner to locate, lock, or delete all files on the device.

  16. Which is a BIOS security feature that can prevent data from being read from a hard drive even if the hard drive is moved to another computer?

    • drive encryption
    • RAID
    • secure boot
    • BIOS passwords

      There are several commonly available BIOS security features. Drive encryption is used to encrypt hard drives to prevent data access. Secure boot ensures that devices will only boot a trusted operating system. BIOS passwords allow different levels of BIOS access. RAID is not a BIOS security feature but rather provides redundancy and fault tolerance by using multiple hard drives.

  17. What is one purpose of adjusting the clock speed within the BIOS configuration settings?

    • to allow a computer to run multiple operating systems in files or partitions
    • to change the order of the bootable partitions
    • to disable devices that are not needed or used by the computer
    • to allow the computer to run slower and cooler

      The CPU clock speed can be adjusted up or down within the BIOS configuration settings. By lowering the clock speed, a CPU can run slower and cooler. Increasing the CPU clock speed makes the computer run faster and hotter.

  18. A technician is assembling a new computer. Which two components are often easier to install before mounting the motherboard in the case? (Choose two.)

    • CPU
    • memory
    • NIC
    • sound card
    • video card

      The CPU, heat sink, and RAM are all easier to work with when they are outside of the case. Peripheral cards usually need to be screwed to the case, so they are easier to install after the motherboard is installed in the case.

  19. Which two components are commonly replaced when a computer system with a newer motherboard is being upgraded? (Choose two.)

    • RAM
    • hard disk drive
    • CPU
    • optical drive
    • CMOS battery
    • adapter card

      When a motherboard is being upgraded to a newer version, both the CPU and RAM are commonly upgraded to support the motherboard compatibility requirements.

  20. A user reports that every morning when a particular computer is turned on, the configuration settings on that computer have to be reset. What action should be taken to remedy this situation?

    • Replace the motherboard.
    • Replace the CMOS battery.
    • Move the jumpers,
    • Upgrade the BIOS.

      BIOS information is maintained through the use of a CMOS battery. If the CMOS battery no longer provides power, configuration settings may be lost.

  21. What are two reasons for installing a second hard disk drive inside an existing computer? (Choose two.)

    • to support a RAID array
    • to store BIOS configuration settings
    • to store the system swap file
    • to increase CPU speed
    • to allow access to a secondary display output

      The common reasons to install a second hard disk drive in a computer include: 1) increase storage space, 2) increase hard drive speed, 3) install a second operating system, 4) store the system swap file, 5) provide fault tolerance, and 6) backup the original hard drive.

  22. When should a technician use unsigned drivers for newly installed computer hardware?

    • if the unsigned driver is the most current driver available
    • if the original installation media is not available
    • if the source of the drivers is trusted by the technician
    • if the Windows installation media does not contain a valid signed driver

      Unsigned drivers can cause system instability, error messages, and boot problems. Not all Windows operating systems may allow the installation of drivers that are not signed. An unsigned driver should only be used if the source of the driver is trusted.

  23. What computer component is often required to allow a single computer to use two monitors simultaneously?

    • an extra power supply
    • a second video adapter card
    • an extra USB connection
    • a KVM switch

      A second video adapter card or an advanced video adapter card is usually required when operating multiple monitors simultaneously with a single computer.

  24. A technician notices that half of the memory slots on a motherboard are colored differently from the other half. Which technology is probably implemented on this system?

    • virtualization
    • ECC
    • dual channeling
    • double-sided

      Dual channeling may require that memory modules be installed in pairs. Some motherboard manufacturers require that a pair of memory modules have the same technical specifications.
