Hello. I have a general computer question that may or may not be difficult to answer. My basic goal is that I would like to be able to visualize in my
mind how the different components of a computer all interact with each other. I would like to be able to visualize the process from the input (as with a
mouse), through the processing (which would include cpu, ram, hard drive, among others), and finally the output (as to the screen or a printer). Would
someone be willing to explain this to me or direct me to a resource where I could see a diagram or explanation of this? The reason I would like to be
able to do this is because I feel it would allow me to use resources more efficiently when writing programs, be able to better diagnose any hardware or
software problems that might arise, and allow me to be able to better identify bottlenecks. Thank you.
