The Only Authorized Lab Companion for the Cisco Networking Academy Program.
Cisco Networking Academy Program: Lab Companion, Vol. I, Second Edition is the lab companion product to the Cisco Networking Academy Program semesters 1 and 2. This book has been strongly integrated with the Cisco Networking Academy Program: First-Year Companion Guide, Second Edition and the Cisco Networking Academy Program: Engineering Journal and Workbook, Volume I, Second Edition. It saves you the time and cost of printing out the online materials.
The Lab Companion contains all the labs from Version 2.1 of the online curriculum, along with additional instruction and bonus labs not found anywhere else. Also includes a CD-ROM containing additional learning materials and e-Labs for reality-based lab training and learning.
Task: Examine the computer and peripheral components, both front and back.
Explanation: The components and configuration of the PC you are working with may vary from the sample answers below.
1. What is the manufacturer and model number of this computer?
2. Remove the PC system unit cover. List at least eight major internal components inside the system unit (use the procedure in Step 3 to find the CPU and amount of RAM).
3. What are the major external components of the PC, including the peripherals?
Step 2. Observe the boot process.
Task: Assemble the PC components and attach all peripherals and boot the PC. Observe the boot process.
Explanation: The computer should boot to the Windows operating system. If the computer does not boot, contact the lab assistant.
