Also, show this guy up, ask him some question that noone would know. Come up with like 8 questions noone would know off the top of their heart.

I've got 'em.

1. What put's amd on top of intel in gaming?
own on-die memory controller

2. What is "8259"?
the common name for an IRQ controller

3. ASCII standard defines how many 8-bit characters?
256

4. What is the maximum number of devices you can have connected to a usb port?
127

5. Describe the function of the input capacitor in a psu.
Capacitros store electricity to help a compensate for fluctuation sin power coming from the outlet. The capacitor kicks in a little extra juice if the incoming power clips below spec. The bigger the capacitor, the better.

6. Steve adds two expansion cards to his system: a sound card and a network card. The sound uses the I/O addresses 300-330 and IRQ5. The network card uses the I/O address 310-340 and IRQ2. When he bootsthe comp, it completely locks up. What is most likely the problem?
The I/O address assigned to the cards cleanly overlap and cause the problem

7. What is the correct boot seqeunce of a pc?
CPU< power good, POST, Boot loader, OS.

8. What is the purpose of POST?
tells all the devices that get BIOS support from the system ROM chip- the assumed devices- to test themselves, and then produces a beep code or text message if any device fails.

There you go. Almost off the top of my head (the world problem I had to look up on my A+ paper. )

Most people fail on the 8259 one. That and the word problem. Well, most nerds, that is... lol... If I said that to anyone else, like, hey, what's 8259? They'd be like, a number dude. lol...
