The X400a is a motherboard. It is the central printed circuit board (PCB) found in some complex electronic systems such as the modem of personal computers. The motherboard is sometimes called as the mainboard or system board. Most motherboards are designed for IBM compatible computers. The X400a provides the electrical connections used by the computer where other components of the system are able to communicate. It also is able to host the Central Processing Unit (CPU) along with other subsystems and other devices. Motherboards are also utilized by other electronic devices including stop watches, mobile phones, clocks, and other small electronic devices. In a typical personal computer, it contains a microprocessor and main memory as well as other essential components in the motherboard. Other components like the external storage and peripheral devices can be attached to the motherboard which will serve as a plug-in card.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The microprocessor's supporting chipset is an important component of the motherboard since it provides the supporting interfaces that a CPU and different buses. The chipset is the one that determines the extent as well as the features and capabilities of the motherboard. The X400a has the following components: the socket where microprocessors are installed, slots for the main system memory to be installed in, a chipset which is able to form an interface between the CPU's front-side bus, main memory, as well as the peripheral buses, the non-volatile memory chips that usually contain the system's firmware or BIOS, a clock generator which is able to produce the system clock signal to be able to synchronize with the various components, slots for expansion cards, and power connector to receive the electrical power from the computer power supply and then distribute it to the CPU, chipset, main memory, and expansion cards. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and X400a errors before installing any driver updates.
