CHAPTER 1 — Introduction to Computer Systems A computer is a complex system consisting of both hardware and software components.

This chapter discusses these components. System software is responsible for controlling, integrating, and managing the individual hardware components of a computer system so that other software and the users of the system see it as a functional unit without having to be concerned with the low-level details such as transferring data from memory to disk, orFile Size: KB.

A computer will process data differently based on the kind of data being handled, using a set of instructions called a program or routine. A keyboard is also used to give commands to the operating system of a computer, such as Windows' Control-Alt-Delete combination, which brings up the system security options screen.
