NT1110: Module 5 Computer Operation and Security
Lab 5.1 Understanding BIOS, POST, and Security Basics In this lab, you will demonstrate your ability to fix issues related to BIOS/POST and secure the computer from viruses and Trojans. Required Setup and Tools
A computer with access to the Internet
Recommended Procedures

Task 1: Understanding BIOS and POST A user boots his or her computer and hears a sequence of six beeps. The computer uses AMI BIOS. What error is indicated by the six beeps? A different user with a computer using Phoenix BIOS hears a sequence of beeps with pauses in between. The sequence is beep - pause - beep beep beep - pause - beep beep beep beep- pause - beep beep beep. What error is indicated by this beep sequence?

Task 2: Basic Security Firewalls may be hardware devices or software programs. Hardware firewalls protect an entire network. Software firewalls protect a single computer. Research the Internet for an example of each of these types of firewalls and compare their features. Linksys and Cisco make firewall/routers for home use. The Zone labs are an example of a software firewall.

As in question 4 and shows on the graph of the roaming node as how it dropped in data rate instantly when entering the room. I would have to say that this reduction was caused from the roaming node. General Questions Concerning Mixing 11b and 11g Clients Guidelines: Answer each of the following questions using knowledge gained from the iLab, readings from the textbook, and individual research on the Web. Answer all questions in full college-level sentences and paragraphs. 6. Supposedly, 802.11b is backwards compatible with 802.11g, yet this lab demonstrates there are significant problems with allowing the two to coexist. What is the primary incompatibility between b and g? As it stated and from our results in the lab there is a major issue with running both modes. Running both B and G in mixed mode will most likely bring the speeds down on the G nodes to almost around B speeds. The G nodes will not perform at the intended speeds. Might even use connectively between the nodes. (Ciampa, 2013) 7. There is another mechanism besides RTS/CTS that helps the incompatibility. Explain briefly the difference between RTS/CTS and CTS-to-self and when each is used. This helps with transmitting only when there is no traffic in the air. This helps with slow transmission and get better performance overall. The RTS is request to send it sends out to a node and then the CTS......

...Personal Learning Management University of Phoenix Algorithms and Logic for Computer Programming PRG 211 Professor Sam March 07, 2013 Personal Learning Management Being able to develop a management tool that would allow a user or student to review course material would be very beneficial. With a course such as programming that has so much information, it is important to be able to recall information in order to properly understand how programming works. I for example, do not have any prior knowledge of so I would have to continuously refresh the information that I have learn in the reading as well as in the class room environment. I will be discussing some topics that are important to the development of such a program. In order to properly develop an application, we must first address and analyze the problem that has caused this need. In this situation, we want to design an application that will allow students to be able to review reading assignments as well as task or anything that would be beneficial to retain. Some subjects are a harder to remember than others such as programming. Modular programming would be the best fit because we would want everyone to read the material in the same order. We would set up the program so everyone’s view is the same. If we allow people to “jump around” in the programming, some learning material is going to be skipped over and that would defeat the purpose of the development of this application. Submodules would be......

...In this lab, you will demonstrate the ability to examine and investigate the different types of motherboards and CPUs used in a computer. Required Setup and Tools Photos of motherboards and CPUs are provided in the lab worksheet. However, if possible, the case cover of a desktop computer should be removed in order to get a look inside the system at the motherboard. The system should be unplugged and off when this work is done. You also need access to the Internet for research. Use the Lab 3 Worksheet to submit your responses. Recommended Procedures Task 1: Examine the Motherboard Procedure * Examine the following motherboard. One interesting thing you will see is the use of two BIOS chips. The M-BIOS chip is the Main BIOS chip and the B-BIOS chip is the Backup BIOS chip, which is used to rewrite the M-BIOS chip if it becomes corrupted. (Refer to the high-resolution images for closer inspection.) * Using the Internet, locate information on the LGA 1156 connector. What processors is it used with? What is its purpose on the motherboard? * Known as Socket H2, the LGA 1155 CPU socket is used with Intel's “2nd Generation Core* i7/i5/i3 series” of desktop microprocessors codenamed Sandy Bridge. This 1155-circuit socket is a replacement of its predecessor – the LGA 1156 Socket (or Socket H1) – which mates with the Nehalem* processor. * LGA stands for "land grid array" the 1156 is the number of pins in the socket.

...Computer Structure and Logic Lab 1 12/17/2015 The computer I am working on right now has Windows 7 Installed on it. Windows 7 is not perfect. Some features are underdeveloped. For example when typing the cursor will move through the document. And some annoyances remain intact. But overall, the final version appears to be a worthy replacement to Windows XP. In window 7 you can take the Screen and split it into two. This is a great feature when you are writing a paper and doing research at the same time. To do this just click on the middle of the tab bar and drag left or right, then take your other screen and go the opposite way. In windows 7 you can now pin Icons to the task bar. For example you can pin chrome to your task bar, to do so open chrome, it will appear in the task bar when it does right click on it. Click on pin to task bar, now you have easy access to chrome. Windows 7 started the “Peak”. You can take your mouse and hover your mouse over an icon on the task bar that is active, when you do this a small screen pops up and you can see what is in that tab. Desktop Gadgets can be added to windows 7. You can add the Weather or even a picture slideshow to the desktop, just right click on your desktop and click on gadgets. Double click on the gadget you want and it will appear on your desktop. The desktop I am using has an Intel Core Processor the CPU is running at 3.30 GHz. It has 8 GB of RAM wish it had at least 16.

Mac OS uses its own web browser named Safari as opposed to Internet Explorer. Linux is an ever-expanding group of operating systems that are similar to Unix in their design.

...Programming Solution Part 3: Array Structure Proposal Wayne Murray Algorithms and Logic for Computer Programming (PRG 211) November 14, 2011 Professor Sprouse Array Structure Proposal In my proposal from week two I would want to find the total number of units per patient for each procedure code billed by the doctor. A parallel array consisting of a one-dimensional and a two-dimensional array in this case would be a good way to solve this problem in a simplified code format. An array would also allow all the data the user wants to input to be stored in the program for multiple queries to be run without having to re-input the data. So this module of the program will allow the user to input all the different procedure codes billed the provider and return a units-per-patient statistic for the searched procedure code. Assuming the data that the user will input is all for the same provider, the following variables will need to be declared: the procedure code, the number of patients, and the number of units billed. Two arrays will be declared as well, one for the procedure code and one for the number of patients and units. The procedure code variable and array must be setup with a string data type since there are some procedure codes that have alpha characters. The number of patients and the number of units variables, as well as their corresponding array will be setup as integer data types. Since both of those variables are of the same data type they can be combined......
