 The steps involved in following a particular instruction given by the cpu as follows:

  • The instruction pointer informs the instruction fetch where the instruction is located in memory.
  • The fetch receives the instruction and passes it on to the decoder, which determines the steps required to complete the task.
  • After that, the information is transmitted to the ALU, which executes the necessary instructions. This involves adding, removing, or otherwise modifying the data.
  • Finally, the instructions are transferred to the computer, which processes them.
