 ASSESSMENT PACKET: ORAL QUESTIONING


1. What are the different computer hardware peripherals? Mention it by categories.
 The Input Devices
 The Output Devices
 The Processors
 The Storage Devices

2. What are the different ports that can be found in the computer? What are the
corresponding peripherals that can be connected to it?

Parallel ports can send or receive a byte (8-bit) at a time. Unlike the serial port, these 8-
bits are transmitted parallel to each other. Parallel ports come in the form of 25-pin female
connector. Parallel ports are popularly used to connect printer, scanner, CD writer, zip drive,
external hard disk drive, tape backup drive, etc.

To spare the user botheration of 8-pin, 25-pin, male, female connectors, the USB has been
designed. It gives you a single, standardized, easy-to-use way to connect up to 127 devices to
a computer. These devices include printers, scanners, mice, joystick, digital camera, web
cameras, speakers, telephones, zip drives, network connections, scientific data
acquisition devices, etc.

Alternatively referred to as an Ethernet port, the LAN port is a port connection that allows
a computer to connect to a network using a wired connection. In the picture to the right, is a
close up example of what a LAN port looks like for a network cable using an RJ-45 connector.
In the case of this example, the two led lights will blink when that port is active and receiving
activity.

The PS/2 connector is a 6-pin Mini-DIN connector used for connecting some keyboards
and mice to a PC compatible computer system. Its name comes from the IBM Personal
System/2 series of personal computers, with which it was introduced in 1987. The PS/2 mouse
connector generally replaced the older DE-9 RS-232 "serial mouse" connector, while the PS/2
keyboard connector replaced the larger 5-pin/180° DIN connector used in the IBM PC/AT design.
The PS/2 designs on keyboard and mouse interfaces are electrically similar and employ the same
communication protocol. However, a given system's keyboard and mouse port may not be
interchangeable since the two devices use a different set of commands. Today this connector has
all but been replaced by USB

Power Supply – Gives electrical power to the computer. It is being connected by a power
cord and plug into the AC outlet on the wall.

Speaker and mic port – computer speaker and mic are being connected to this port. The
blue and green are being use to connect the speakers while the pink is to connect the mic.

A Video Graphics Array (VGA) connector is a three-row 15-pin DE-15 connector. The
15-pin VGA connector is found on many video cards, computer monitors, and some high definition
televisionsets. On laptop computers or other small devices, a mini-VGA port is sometimes used in
place of the full-sized VGA connector.
