Computer Building & Upgrades

Custom PC Can be your computer not quick enough or too old?

What you need to know when buying.... Then maybe It's the perfect time to have an upgrade!

You may even want to build a new computer.

My goal is to explain to you the best way to build and/or change your own computer system, with a fraction products it would cost to get a fully assembled system coming from a leading manufacturer.

Let me have suggestions regarding which you could receive the necessary parts to develop your laptop or computer.

Catalog ordering is an extremely great way to get parts & accessories and in most cases are going to friendly knowledgeable people to advise you regarding you buy.

Just be certain you deal with a good business.

An execllent place to go can be your local computer show.

Many bargains can be found there especially when you get with cash.

You may also take a look at computer & electronic stores.


Wherever you will get your computer parts & accessories, ensure you look around for the best deals and have the makers written warranties.

The various tools you'll need are 1 (one) Phillips and two (two) Flathead non-magnetic screwdrivers.

Before beginning I wish to tell you just how electronic circuits are static sensitive there are some precautions you must observe.

Keep circuit boards of their antistatic bags until they are able to be installed.

Before handling components discharge your body's static electric charge by touching a grounded surface.

A good way to do this is always to plug laptop computer case into a power outlet and touch any unpainted the main metal.

When handling circuit boards.

Feel, as this any components about the boards and connectors that plug in to the expansion slots.

Hold them by their edges and/or any metal mounting hardware about the circuit board.

Never slide boards over any surface as they can sustain irreversible damage.

Avoid plastic, vinyl, Styrofoam, furs and carpet within your work area.

You need to wear a grounding wrist strap.


Be sure all components have reached room temperature.

There are many forms of compatible personal computers (also known as PC's).

They may be as follows:

Older models termed as AT socket 7, and newer ATX slot 1 type models.

The SOCKET 370 is an additional type which has similarities in look towards the old socket 7 though speeds more than 1 GHZ and beyond.

Be sure you purchase a case, power supply, motherboard and CPU which are compatible with the other.

Ask profits person to make sure.

OPENING True.

If you're upgrading your present system come up with a diagram of the contacts at the back of the device unit so that you can replace them correctly when you find yourself finished.

First you must ground yourself by touching the unpainted metal chassis.

Then unplug the A/C electrical cord and then for any other cables that could be connected.

By going through the back with the unit, locate approximately 6 screws around the outer edges and take them.


Older tower systems possess a plastic cover for the back; you will need to pry them back using a screwdriver first to get at the screws.

To get rid of the top's on tower and mini desktop systems, slide the top's back and up.

On an old desktop system, turn your computer around to take care of you and also slide the top's forward.

Be careful not to catch it onto any cables inside system.

Set the top's aside, keeping all screws together inside a container.

To reassemble, just reverse this procedure after replacing the required components.
