How Computers work
Hey everyone, I am new to DevShed, and I was wondering how computer hardware such as kernels work. I have little to NO background in this field, and I was wondering if anyone could explain to me:
1. How do Compilers work? Please try to get as specific as possible, down to how to electricity flows.
2. How do kernels translate the software to hardware commands?
3. How does the electricity work to activate the hardware?

It's called research.
It seems to me that you're looking for a single web page you can copy and paste. Sorry, it doesn't work like that. You have to keep digging through multiple pages, following references to other bits of information until you can build the picture you need.
Nobody here is going to write a 10000 word essay to answer your apparent question in the detail you seem to want, only for you to throw it back with 1-line of pith saying "nope, not it".

Actually, i would say CPU (with RAM?) is the brain of computer.
PSU is more closer to be the heart.

What you means that RAM is a brain of a computer.
If ram is brain, What is Processor...
