    Well I need to identify this parts and know what they do. Now if some one can tell me the names I can look for the part's information. My teacher is an ass and he wouldn't tell us if we had the correct names of the parts. This is his excuse for a group project. Please help me.

    ok,

    abc is the fan on the motherboard
    d is the power box
    e are the connection cables
    f looks like either your sound/graphics card or nic/ethernet card
    g and h are your serial and audio ports
    i I need a better pic of the front
    j and k are the zip and disk drives
    l is the cd/dvd drive/burner
    m could be the phone port(its hard to tell)
    n looks like a chipset fan

    I am pretty sure thats most of them,some are difficult to tell without more pics.Hope that helps you.

    the outer piece is the case

    I think the front he labeled the hard disk drive, the floppy disk drive, and the CD readers he has.

    L - cd/dvd drives. They're too old to be burners.
    D - power supply
    I - just looks like the top of the case
    E - just a ribbon cable
    H - video card
    G - sound card
    J - floppy drive
    ABC - fan, heat sinc, processor
    K - Hard drive, though i have no idea why it's exposed in the front
    M - on board set for the keyboard, mouse, etc.

    I think thats it.

    ABC - CPU, heatsink, fan
    D - Power supply unit (PSU)
    E - IDE cables
    F - Not sure if he wants the card (then its a video card) or the slot then its most likely an AGP slot
    G - Sound ports / Sound card
    H - DP15 video port / Video card
    I - PCI slot
    J - 3.5" floppy
    K - hard drive
    L - CD-ROM or DVD-ROM (or various CD or DVD writers)
    M - need a pix from the other side but most likely its the Ethernet jack (Cat5)
    N - back of case or MB frame?
    O - contacts for HD light, power, restart, sound, etc

    I think I saw a "1" there which would be the front of the case I'm guessing

    good luck
    =)

    A/B/C = Fan, Heatsink, CPU
    D = PSU
    E = IDE Cables
    F = Video Card
    G = Audio ports
    H = VGA port
    I = PCI Slot
    J = Floppy Drive
    K = Hard Drive
    L = CD Drives
    M = Either the case fan or ports of some description depending on what its supposed to be indicating. If its ports, look round the back to see what they are. Judging by the position and size, its probably USB and/or Network.
    N = Motherboard Chipset of some variety, probably the Northbridge.
    O = Case header connectors.
    Z = Motherboard tray
    1 = Case or Warning stickers, whatever its supposed to be suck on

    well I appreciate your help guys, some people on some other boards can be real asses. I'm kinda new to computers, so I don't want to fail this class because of the bad teacher that I have.

    Another question since I didn't show the back. Letter "M" on the back is for the ethernet connection and USB Connections. What do you guys think is the proper name for this?
