    This section examines guidelines and considerations to take into account when installing devices. Concepts covered include:

    • Factors related to installing hardware devices:

      • System resources

      • Plug and Play (PnP)

      • Driver

      • Hot swapping/plugging

    • Guidelines for installing devices

    • Using Device Manager to view installed devices and their status.

    Students will learn how to:

    • Install devices using drivers included with Windows and drivers available on disc.

    • Use Device Manager to verify the proper installation of devices.

    • Safely remove hot swappable devices.

    • Configure Windows to search Windows Update for updated drivers.

    • Configure driver signing behavior in Windows XP.

    • Update device drivers.
    A Essentials Objectives:

    • 1.1 Categorize storage devices and backup media

      • Removable storage

        • Hot swappable devices and non-hot swappable devices

    • 3.3 Explain the process and steps to install and configure the Windows OS
