Building your own computer is a much easier task than most people realise and can probably be undertaken by anyone who is reasonably practical. However some knowledge and experience of using a PC would be beneficial. This book will guide you through the entire process. It is written in a simple and straightforward way with teh explanations clearly illustrated with numerous colour photographs.
The book is divided into three sections:
Overview and preparation: Covers understanding the fundamentals and choosing the most suitable component parts for your computer, together with a review of the basic assembly.
Assembly: Explains in detail how to fit the component parts into their correct positions in the omputer’s casing, then how to connect these parts altgether by plugging the cables into the appropriate sockets. No soldering should be required and the only tools that you are likely to need are screwdrivers, small spanners and a pair or pliers.
BIOS and operating systems: The final section details the setting up of the BIOS and the installation of the Windows operating system which should then enable all the parts of your computer to work together correctly. You will then be ready to install your files and any applications software you may require.
The great advantage of building your owncomputer is that you ‘tailor’ it exactly to your own requirements. Also, you will learn a tremendous amount about the structure and internal workings of a PC, which will prove to be invaluable should problems every arise.
