So I want to get into PC building and learning the parts of a PC. Is there any detailed (with graphics) website that shows step-by-step on how to do this? I know there are Youtube videos, but I prefer reading more. Very Happy


Also a general computer tech thread if there are any Tech savvies out there.

For example, my computer is having this weird problem on the front end USB ports/Headphone jacks where 50% of the time you plug something in the computer freezes. Any idea on what this be?

All the parts you'll need to know, make up the basics of a computer.

The case and the cable are also important pieces. They are often neglected and that's a shame. Cool

Something important if you build your own it's:
NEVER build it on a fluffy area. The static is really bad.
Avoid direct contact with the cuircuit area, it's not that bad, but don't take risks.
To get grounded (get rid of the static, touch the case a 30 seconds at least)

The bios configuration, if needed, is something troublesome.
Another important thing, the motherboard, read the instructions well, there is little cables connected to the boot section. Don't remember the name, but those are related to the boot button and the reset button on the case, so if you connect them wrong, the pc won't start.
If the pc doesn't start, check those, after, check if the power is correctly in. It's a bit scary the first time those happens.

Got a old 2000 Dell I'm going to (first) clean the dust out of it and start to take that apart and put it back together. Also need to fix a BSOD on it, not sure if internals has a problem with that.

On my main PC, another problem with the front board is that the headset/microphone thing doesn't work at all. I remember when I first got it it did this, but a few months later it worked again? I looked at the parts and those jacks are all soldered on. Not sure if I want to directly mess with those as I don't know the next step after that/soldering back on.

BSOD are caused by a problem with the drivers mainly. It's mostly du to logistic errors. Try to format it.

^Sounds like a plan if I could find the power chord to the computer now lol


Good thing you said something about the static. Avoided any work last night with it just in case lol.

It's one of those Dell 2000's with the weird case that folds and definitely a bunch of wires that seem cluttered and makes it seem like you aren't supposed to mess with anything lol
I know a guy recently put in new RAM for it, so I'll probably salvage that for later along with any of parts I think would be worth keeping for extras.

Hey Everyone! Its the long holiday so I hoped on.

Lets see M, I suggest NewEgg (They only have videos I think, sorry) as a PC building guide/resource. Couldn't have built mine without their help. Also the CPU is actually a small chip behind that massive fan in the picture. Be careful no to bend the pins. bending a pin could be a disaster.

Also when screwing on the cpu cooler make sure to apply thermal paste, or it will overheat, but not more than a pea size smudge or it will get on the components!

Best of luck with your PC building endeavors M, and remember to stay grounded!!

On Gameface nobody can hear you scream.

That function is still in development.
