A motherboard
’ 
s
form factor
determines the size of the board and it
’ 
sfeatures that makes it compatible with power supplies, cases, processors,and expansion cards.10. The most common Motherboard form factor is called an
ATX
component.11. A component physically mounted on a motherboard is called an
on-board
component.12. A jumper cover that is
PARKED
is attached to a single pin forsafekeeping, but is NOT being used to turn a jumper setting on.13. The process of upgrading or refreshing the programming on the ROM-BIOS chip is called
FLASHING
the ROM.14. A new mother comes bundled with
CD
that contains drives for all theonboard components.15. Motherboard standoffs are also called
SPACERS
.16.
PCI express uses a ______ type of connection to the chipset
.17. Configuration information can be stored on a motherboard using
ALL THEABOVE.
18. The new PCI express x16 slot is used primarily for
video
cards.19. How many pins are on P1 power connector on an enhanced ATX (ATX-2)motherboard?
24 pins

20
21.
 
Earlier Pentiums uses a
pin grid aray
socket, with pins aligned inuniform rows around the socket.
 
22.The
zero insertion force sockets
have a lever that is used to lift theprocessor up and out of the socket.
 
23.Data throughput is sometimes called
bandwith.
 
24.Some cases have
standoffs,
also called spacers, which are round plasticor metal pegs that separate the motherboard from the case, so thatcomponents on the back of the motherboard do not touch the case.
 
25. On the motherboard, the
POWER SW
controls power to the motherboardand must be connected for the PC to power up.
 
26. Sometimes documentation marks pin 1 as a SQUARE pin in the diagram,rather than round like the other pins.
 
27. A component that can be repaired or replaced without returning thecomputer to the shop is called a
field replaceable unit
(FRU
)
 
28. In the chipset, the
northbridge
