Build up your Computer

1. Getting Started

Prepare all components of the computer you will raft, such as casing, mainboard, processor, video card, memory, hard disk, and optical drive (DVD-Rom). Prepare also mur, which is located on the screw in the casing, and also a screwdriver and pliers. Manual motherboard is also required when there is someone you do not understand in the future.


2. Installing the Processor and Memory motherboard

The next step is to install the processor on the mainboard. Open up the processor, remove the processor and equipped with heatsinks with the fan. Processor with a pair considering the 'elbow' of the processor and the socket on the mainboard (slide the cover and lift the first processor socket on the motherboard). Installation must fit between the mainboard with the processor.

After the pair heatsinks with fans on the top of the processor. The pair on the left and right heatsinks. After that 'key' heatsinks that integrates with the motherboard, and will not be easily undone. Do not forget to connect the power cable to the motherboard fan is usually located close to the left or right from the processor socket.

Set the memory (RAM) on the socket is available on the computer. Make sure the position of the slot according to the location of the memory. After fitting the position, press enter and memory that integrates with the motherboard. This will be visible to lock in the left and right will automatically rise to the top, when the memory is installed correctly.

3. motherboard to enter the computer casing

Time you enter into the casing motherboard. If you install the mainboard difficulty or collide with the power supply, you should first dislodged from power supply casing. Set first 'backplate' buffer (which is on the mainboard) on the inside casing. Backplate should be adjusted to the first position mainboard, and the aluminum bolongin who may still be closed from the original factory.

Then attach mur (check first that the position of the location fit the mainboard), which will be a buffer from the mainboard (mur over the form of air, beneath the screw-shaped) in the place provided on the casing. Ensure the right position, and key with pliers. After take motherboard on the top of the mur, and kuncilah with the screw. Make sure mur installed correctly, so that the mainboard when appointed, will not move.

connected choke cable power supply with the mainboard, note that the cable is suitable for the (usually located close to the memory). There are 2 cables that you need to install (if a certain type of computer or type 1 long free cable only).

Then there is the cable that lies at the bottom of the casing, which have about 15 pieces cable. To install, you need to see the manual of your motherboard, or sometimes have information on the motherboard, with the pair to see the position of + and - correctly, and be sure to be wrong.

4. Harddisk and install DVD-ROM/RW

The next step is to install a hard drive in place that have been provided on the inside casing. Usually located in the middle of the bottom of the casing. don't forget to connect the power cable to the hard disk, hard disk and the data cable to the motherboard, then kuncilah with the screw provided. In the video installation disk is still a long hard type that is still using the IDE. If the SATA hard disk is more or less the same, you only need the cable to match only to harddisk.

The step-ROM or DVD RW is also almost the same. You need to first remove the cover that is at the top of the casing. After the DVD-ROM drive installed, do not forget to lock the side of the four DVD-ROM with the screw provided. Do not forget to also connect the cable to the power of DVD-ROM and data cable to the mainboard. And one audio cable that can connect you with a sound card (if any) or the motherboard (if you onboard sound card).

The last step is to install VGA Card (if any). If you onboard VGA with the mainboard, this step can you ignore. VGA slots are usually located in the middle of the mainboard (processor side) with a slot that another color alone. In the video posted is AGP VGA Card, for a new type (PCI-E), is the same way.
