I have many questions about computer hardware architecture, but I'm not sure where I ought to ask them.
I have no experience with electronics.
I have no experience with assembly (modern) or other low level programming languages.
I am a self-learning computer enthusiast, who wants to know how one exactly works and simulate some.
- How do computers set a register to a constant value?
- How is X-bit CPU architecture defined?
- How is HDDM (not RAM) accessed and addressed?
Got first two answered in Stack Overflow, but people said that they were off-topic and only loosely related to assembly, because guys who do assembly might know the answer. And they gave me links to Super User and Electronics.
Electronics? Any terms like "voltage", "resistance", "transistor" and so on would kill me (logic gates, RAM chips, registers, clock and similar stuff is OK.)
Super user? It seem more like it, but I saw the questions and they are more about general stuff, not fundamentals.
Maybe someone knows a perfect site for questions like that?
EDIT: I know how one works; I want to improve my knowledge. How have I gotten so far? Minecraft. Those youtube tutorials gave me great fundamentals, but now I want something more complex!
