Inputs are the signals or data received by the system and outputs are the signals or data sent from it. The term can also be used as part of an action; to "perform I/O" is to perform an input or output operation. I/O devices are used by a human (or other system) to communicate with a computer. For instance, a keyboard or mouse is an input device for a computer, while monitors and printers are output devices. Devices for communication between computers, such as modems and network cards, typically perform both input and output operations.

74. What are Motherboard Connectors?

Every PC power supply has connectors that attach to the motherboard, providing power to the motherboard, processor, memory, chipset, integrated components (such as video, LAN, universal serial bus [USB], and FireWire), and any cards plugged into bus slots. These connectors are important; not only are these the main conduit through which power flows to your system, but attaching these connectors improperly can have a devastating effect on your PC, including burning up both your power supply and motherboard. Just as with the mechanical shape of the power supply, these connectors are usually designed to conform to one of several industry-standard specifications, which dictate the types of connectors used as well as the pinouts of the individual wires and terminals. Unfortunately, just as with the mechanical form factors, some PC manufacturers use power supplies with custom connectors or, worse yet, use standard connector types but with modified (incompatible) pin outs (meaning the signals and voltages are rearranged from standard specifications). Plugging a power supply with an incompatible pinout into a motherboard that uses a standard pinout (or vice versa) usually results in the destruction of either the board or the power supply-or both.

75. What are Motherboard Jumpers?

Jumpers allow the computer to close an electrical circuit, allowing the electricity to flow certain sections of the circuit board.

130. While conducting interview talk positive and be enthusiastic!

Avoid talking negative things about your last job or boss in the interview. Talking badly about the previous employer reflects badly on your attitude. Make sure that you show your enthusiasm for the position you are being interviewed for and that you are really interested in working here. If you stay dull, the employer will take it as lack of interest and eliminate you for being a misfit.

It is important to make a list of your strengths and achievements in the last positions you have held. They give you the confidence and help you in demonstrating yourself as a strong contender for the position.

131. Must prepare well for your HR interview!

More than 50% candidates flunk it. So, you did well during your technical test? You think the job is yours? No. You still have HR interview to face and more than 50% candidates flunk the HR interview. HR interviews are conducted to understand the character of the person and see if he would fit into the corporate culture. So, make sure that you are able to understand the reason behind each question that is thrown at you and take a correct approach to answer it.

132. Before going try to research the company and the domain!

It is extremely important to research the company, gain some know how about its business and the technologies it works on. Going unprepared demonstrates your lack of interest in the position.

133. Try to exhibit your knowledge about various facets of software development!

On most of the occasions, you will be interviewed only for one position - developer, team lead, project manager or tester for example. It will work in your favour if you exhibit your knowledge about other related facets of the position too. For e.g. if you are appearing for a developer's position, it would help if you also discuss about leading the team, managing the project, testing the software or developing other people in your team. This will make you a stronger candidate for the position as most of the people would just discuss what they have been called for and go back. So, you can get a cutting edge here.

134. Do not bug them by following up please!

So, your interview is over? Another important thing to know at this stage is that while it is considered polite to drop a thank you e-mail, bugging them up with a phone call everyday is not going to help. No company would like to let a good candidate get lost. They will dig out your contact details if they want to hire you. So, just drop a thank you e-mail and wait for them to come back.

135. Do not tell lies ever!

With so many social networking sites being in place and the companies having access to private investigators it is extremely easy for the employer to verify everything you said during the interview. So, while you have the right to remain silent, make sure that you do not falsify your candidature at any point of time. You might get the job by telling lies but the day they are exposed, the only door left open for you will be the exit door.

136. Must prepare and show your communication skills!

One of the most important qualities recruiters look for in candidates is their ability to communicate clearly. This means – how good is the candidate at explaining and understanding things. Software development is more of a team work wherein you are required to interact regularly with your team and people from client's team. So, it is extremely important that you know the common language well – which in most cases is English. So, ensure that you work on your English by regularly reading the newspapers and other good books. Also, make sure that you are well prepared to take up a vocabulary or grammar test if the need arises during the interview.

137. You must prepare yourself for aptitude tests, skill tests, on the spot programming!

The interview process at most of the places these days comprises of a test to check your aptitude, vocabulary, technical skills etc. You may also be required to do some on the spot programming. Most of the people get eliminated in this round itself for lack of preparation. If you want to really get the job, you need to prepare yourself well to clear this round of interview.
