Q. Describe the procedure for computer assembly and disassembly 1) Procedure for computer assembly
i. Prepare the case. Lay the case out on the flat surface. Have all the screws that came with the case nearby. Unscrew the case access door from the computer if it is screwed in place. You may also have to push a button or lever to open the door. ii. Assemble the motherboard and some pieces on it first. You can push the RAM modules straight down into their slots until they pop into place. Put the CPU in the processor box. You will need to lift a thin metal bar and match the back of the CPU with the pins on the board and then close the bar. Put the heat sink and fan on top of the CPU area. There should be four holes where the corners of the heat sink will connect on the motherboard. You may need to screw the fan on top of the heat sink. iii. Put the motherboard in the case. Match the back of the board where the card slots and connectors are so that they stick out of the back of the case. Screw the motherboard into the corresponding screw holes on the case. There should be about six places where the holes on the motherboard will line up with these screw holes. iv. Put the power supply inside the case and match it to the square opening on the back of the case where the fan end of the power supply will stick out. Screw four screws through the case and into the power supply. Connect the power from the power supply to the motherboard.

Consult the motherboard manual to find which connections to use. v. Install all of the drives next. These can include hard drives and optical drives. Slide...
