WOW!

I know loadz on computers and websites and php, java etc, but i hardly don't know anything about installing a new mother board, ram, and new sound cards and video cards.

I really want to know about whats inside a pc and what it takes to build and update one.

I will keep looking at this post.

Also, how do you install ram?

I guess that old joke about how many software enginners does it take to change a lightbulb isn't that far off the mark :tazz:

First up, have a read through the pinned threads under the "System Building and Overclocking" forum and the links in those threads (as they'll probably have explanatory pictures).

To computer Guru~
Hail to the computer Guru~! YOu are my hero~ When I grow up I wanna be just like you~ no! really!
I am sorry computer guru~ but I have no idea what threads you are speaking of.... Maybe you can enlighten me and be patient with me~ I'm really not a complete idiot~ I just am not familiar with this lingo~ please break it down for me ~ thank you so much~ I really appreciate your help~ thanks


To other persons reply:
Once you buy the right ram~ you take the case off of you puter~ after it is unplugged from the power source of course~ then you look for the slot that is next to the memory card already installed. It is very important to touch the frame of your puter while installing the card because you dont want any static electricity~ that can damage the puter~ then you look at the ram card and make sure the notches lineup ~ open the tabs if applicable~ insert the card~ close the tabs~ and wha la~ more ram. When I first put mine in ~ I didn't have the card inserted far enuff and the monitor would not stay on~ but once I had it making all the contacts~ it was up and going.

Hi,

I suggest you read thru This it has tons of info but look at the "instalation guides" it has some info on how to install motherboards.

You may also want to purchase some books and do more research on "how to build computers" (google)
