How to build a computer
Building a computer is not an easy task. It is quite complicated to build a computer, which is an intricate thing.
If one is going to build a computer ,then firstly, he has to assemble all the components which are required for building the computer.
Types of components depend on the function of the computer.
What is your main motto for building computer?
You want to build a computer either for high-speed gaming or for internet surfing and mails (or office work).
For building good computer, you have to gather all the high quality components.
High quality components are expensive but you may find them at affordable prices in market depending on the quality of those components.
It would be good to keep in mind the budget of the computer.
Nowadays, to build a computer is as easy as one can build it with ease by just following the guidelines available on internet.
There are also different websites ,where you can get different parts for the computer. It would be better to buy the components only after searching for them on various sites.
Firstly, you have to gather all the components. Then, all you need to do is to install these components in the computer case.
You can build a computer within few hours.
Some of the computer components are packed in big anti static boxes. So, while opening these boxes, make sure there would be enough work space to build a computer.
Numbers of parts are required to build a computer, so there should also be good working space for computer parts.
Now, let me tell you how to build a computer.
While you build a computer, there is always a risk of static electricity that may damage the powerful parts of the computer and make them useless.
These parts are sensitive to static current and become easily damaged and these damaged parts create problems during booting of the computer.
So, you need to provide safety to these computer parts. For providing safety, you need to GROUND YOURSELF first. You can make use of anti static wrist band.
Wrap one end of this band to your wrist and connect another clip to the computer case (connect it anywhere to the case).
Some of the parts of computer are packed in anti static packages, so it’s good to open these packages at the time of installation only.
If you are going to build a computer for the first time, then you can take help of your friend or any person who may expertise in it. He will help you a lot.
Components of Computer
- Computer case : The first component is the computer case, in which you need to install all the interior components of the computer.
All the special instructions of components installation are introduced in the layout that comes with the case.
Follow the instructions; these will help you in installation. Open the case by removing side panel to install the components. Remove all the things that dangle inside the case.
If the dangling things are permanently attached to the case, then keep them aside, so that it will not hinder you during installation of the components.
first portion of our installation is power supply unit or PSU. Many of the cases come with the power supply.
But if your case has no power supply, then you have to introduce it first and then keep the case aside. PSU generally is located at the top corner of the case.
If you don’t find the proper slot for the PSU, then consult the case’s layout.
Standard and modular are the two types of power supply.
Modular PSUs have cables that can be detached now and run during the installation of rest of the components.
If cables are fixed permanently, then make a bundle of them and keep them aside during installation of another component.
Processor or CPU:
This is the main part of the computer. Find a latest model of multi core processor. Be aware of the new type of processor!
Old processor may vary in work and also cause trouble in working. It may create problem during booting. Motherboard is prepared by installing the processor, RAM and cooler in the case.
Cooler is connected on the back of the motherboard. This processor matches to the motherboard through the small pins present on it.
Firstly, open the socket of CPU and insert processor and close the socket. NO need to apply force! If you are facing trouble in insertion then there will be misalignment of the pins.
So alignment should be correct. Apply thermal paste and stick the CPU to the motherboard.
all the interior components of computer are connected with the motherboard so it is the vital part of the computer. Motherboard comes as accordance with the processor.
A different type of motherboard fits in different types of processors. As I said, all the interior components are connected to the motherboard so you need to choose that one which connects with all the components.
Nowadays, installing a motherboard has become easy as you just need to follow the instructions. You will not face any difficulty if you follow all the instructions carefully.
A number of pins are present on the motherboard so make sure it will install properly without the bending of any pin. Otherwise it may damage the component.
Gently remove the motherboard from the anti static packaging and put it on non metallic surface. Add all the components to the motherboard before installing in the case.
If you do so then you will not face trouble while installing other components.
there are different types of coolers. Some coolers have back plate that connects with the motherboard.
Some are attached to the processors. Cooler helps in cooling the system and prevent it from overheating.
• RAM: Insert the RAM at the appropriate slot in the motherboard.
Match the sockets of the RAM with the motherboard.
• Now install the back plate to the rear part of the case. Knock out the plate to the back of the case.
• Clamp the motherboard using the screws at right place in the case.
• Its time to plug-in the connectors to the motherboard. It may seem difficult but you can easily do this by reading the instructions.
Also, connect all the LED power, audio, video cable to the motherboard.
• Insert graphics card, video cards and PCI cards and secure them using screw.
• Insert drives, optical drives to the case by removing the front panel of the case.
• In case you are installing large number of components then you should also install more fans for providing extra cooling.
Fans are installed at the top or rear top of the case.
• Connect all the cables of power supply to the motherboard.
• Now place all the cables properly inside the case.
Now close and secure the case and clamp it with the screws.
• Connect all the output devices keyboard, monitor, mouse, speakers to the computer.
• You can power on your computer and check the power supply but you can run your computer only after installing the operating system.
By checking the power supply you can make sure your computer is ready to boot.
• Install an operating system in your computer and then it is ready to boot.
That is how you build a computer ! Was that enough? No. There is still a lot.
For nowat least, You have succeeded in the building part, and you can also tell others about how to build a computer.
