    Hi,

    I have had a look on the web and can't quite find what I want.

    1. A simple explanation as to how a transistor works.

    2. How transistors work in computer memory, BIOS, and processors.

    3. The importance of transistors in computers.

    If you have come across some easily understandable sites, pleas post the URL's.

    Thanks

  4. Ho hummm. I wouldn't bother. Right off the bat its wrong as to how a
    transistor operates.

    Your assumption is wrong.

    I am not a student

    I am not.

    Of course I have done research. I am looking for advice

  8. Applying a voltage between the base and emitter inject charge carriers
    into the base, where upon they are swept up into the collector due to
    the high accelerating voltage at the base collector.
    The same as they do in op-amps.
    Ho.. hummm. they make them work.

    Hi species,

    Probably the best thing is to learn how semiconductors work, here is a link
    to a page:
