Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Other input devices, part of CompTIA A+ (220-901) Cert Prep: 3 Peripherals and Building a PC.
- Now the CompTIA A+ exams cover a lot of very interesting…input devices.…Probably not the kind of thing you'd run into every day.…But they're cool and they're out there and they're…on the A+ so let's talk about them.…I want to start of with the digitizing tablet.…At my company we do an outrageous amount of graphics…for my books and other products.…And I've got some really smart guys who are really good…at drawing and they live on these particular tablets.…This is a Wacom tablet and it acts mainly like…a really powerful mouse in essence and provides…an alternative form of input.…
It's plugged in via USB and I've installed the drivers.…So what I want to do is show you a configuration.…This one's actually kind of interesting because…the Wacom tablet actually creates a control panel applet…which is certainly completely acceptable.…And in this case, as you watch the screen I'm going…to actually manipulate this a little bit.…So, I'm terrible at this.…You should see, some of my guys are really good at this.…So what we can do is actually make adjustments…
The CompTIA A+ 220-901 exam is comprised of six key parts. The third, peripherals and building a PC, is covered by this course. Instructor Mike Meyers discusses how to work with auxiliary devices, including media and accessories. He shows how to configure device behavior and manage the ports that support the peripheral devices. CD, DVD, Blu-ray, USB, flash media, FireWire, keyboards, mice, cameras, and webcams are all explored.
Note: The six courses designed for the CompTIA A+ (220-901) exam preparation include core processing, core hardware, peripherals and building a PC, displays and printers, networking, and laptops and mobile devices.
