Before you begin I would like to explain how electronic circuits are static sensitive there are a few

precautions you must observe.

Keep circuit boards of their antistatic bags until they may be ready to be installed.

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

A sensible way to do that is usually to plug laptop computer case into power and touch any unpainted

area of the metal.

When handling circuit boards.

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

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

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

Avoid plastic, vinyl, Styrofoam, furs and carpet with your workshop.

You need to wear a grounding wrist strap.

Be sure all components are in room temperature.

There are some kinds of compatible computer systems (often known as PC's).

These are the subsequent:

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

The SOCKET 370 is the one other type which is similar to look at towards the old socket 7 but with

speeds in excess of 1 GHZ and beyond.

Be sure you purchase a case, power source, motherboard and CPU which are suitable for one another.

Ask your profits person to be certain.

OPENING The situation.

Should you be upgrading your existing system come up with a diagram with the contacts in the back of

the machine unit in order to replace them correctly when you are finished.

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

By exploring the back of the unit, locate approximately 6 screws around the outer edges and take them.

Older tower systems use a plastic cover about the back; you'll need to pry rid of it with a screwdriver

first to go to the screws.

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

While on an old desktop system, turn the computer around to manage as well as slide the coverage


Try not to catch it onto any cables in the system.

Set the cover aside, keeping all screws together inside a container.

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