Question Description

You have been recently hired as a computer technician at a local computer sales and repair shop. The shop offers a variety of services that range from installing new applications and fixing computers to recovering lost or deleted data. One service provided by this company is the opportunity for customers to have a computer built to their specifications. As a technician, it is your responsibility to capture the customer’s unique requests.

As part of the training process, your manager would like to evaluate how effective you are at this task, and asked that you complete a project: creating a three-part manual that shows a user how to build a computer, using a list of specifications. Your manual should also describe potential problems you might encounter during the process and ways to handle those problems.

When you are finished, you will submit each part of the user manual for review. It will ultimately be used to train new computer technicians at the shop.

Everything needed is in the word doc attached, if you don't feel comfortable clicking the rubric link inside the word document I can copy and paste its contents here as well. Please separate each part(1-3) into its own word document. If you have any questions please feel free to ask.

You will provide a comprehensive and detailed manual documenting the step-by-step process for building a computer using the components provided in LabSim 13.1: “Build a Computer from Scratch.” The manual will be used by entry-level technicians, so it should be clear, concise, and formatted using the IEEE citation style, with screenshots of each step from LabSim 13.1. Your manual should be similar to step-by-step instructions on How to Change the Oil in Your Car. Note carefully how in this example, not only is each step described individually, and in detail, but also there is a visual representation of each step. You should model your submission along the same lines. Keep in mind that your manual will be used as a guide for new technicians. The manual should not document how to complete a LabSim section; rather, it should provide detailed instructions on how to build an actual computer for a potential customer: "Drag the motherboard from the shelf to the motherboard plate in the system case." "After properly grounding yourself, pick up the motherboard and place it inside the area where the motherboard will sit in the case. Align the screw holes on the motherboard with the screw holes on the case. Use appropriate screws to mount the motherboard inside the case, making sure not to scratch the surface of the motherboard." To learn about the required parts which must be present in your submissions, and to learn how you will be assessed on this assignment, please take a moment to review the rubric. The manual will be submitted in three separate parts, at three suggested milestone times. Part 1 addresses Sections 1-5 of the overall manual, Part 2 addresses Sections 6-10, and Part 3 addresses Sections 11-12. PC Build & Manual Part 1: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Workspace Preparation (LabSim 2.0) Installing Motherboard (LabSim 3.3) Installing Power Supply (LabSim 3.2) Installing CPU (LabSim 3.5 and 3.10) Installing RAM (LabSim 3.7/3.8) PC Build & Manual Part 2: 6. Installing Hard Drive (LabSim 5.2) 7. Installing Optical Drive (LabSim 5.3) 8. Installing Video Card (LabSim 3.12) 9. Connecting Monitors, Keyboard, and Mouse (LabSim 4.0) 10. BIOS Configuration (LabSim 3.10) PC Build & Manual Part 3: 11. Installing Windows 7 (LabSim 10.3) 12. Configuring Critical Windows Features (LabSim 9.0 and 10.0) In addition to including the sections listed below, your manual should • address the environment in which the computer build will take place. For example, what are the best practices when working in a carpeted room? • not use computer jargon. Although the manual will be used to train new technicians, it may also be used by someone with limited computer knowledge, so the manual must be easy to understand. • include explanations on methodology. For example, why is it important to use an antistatic grounding bracelet when working with the computer? Or why is it important to install memory sticks in pairs? The 12 sections of the overall manual are as follows: 1. Workspace Preparation (LabSim 2.0) 2. Installing Motherboard (LabSim 3.3) 3. Installing Power Supply (LabSim 3.2) 4. Installing CPU (LabSim 3.5 and 3.10) 5. Installing RAM (LabSim 3.7/3.8) 6. Installing Hard Drive (LabSim 5.2) 7. Installing Optical Drive (LabSim 5.3) 8. Installing Video Card (LabSim 3.12) 9. Connecting Monitors, Keyboard, and Mouse (LabSim 4.0) 10. BIOS Configuration (LabSim 3.10) 11. Installing Windows 10 (LabSim 10.3) 12. Configuring Critical Windows Features (LabSim 9.0, 10.0, 11.0, and 12.0) ...

Introduction
A personal computer is a machine that can be upgraded to acknowledge data
(information), conduct data processing and storage for security, later or future use. Data
preparation to yield better outcome is done by the features of the personal computer (Daskin,
2015). The physical or hardware devices that are connected to the personal computer (PC) are
referred to the fringe appliance. However, the peripheral device includes all the data yield and
the auxiliary storage machines. In the account of the personal computers, the better percentage of
the data yield and storage devices are connected to similar hardware or physical unit. In several
personal computers (PCs), the central processing unit (CPU), and the disks drives are attached to
the similar logging.
The console, screen, and mouse are viewed to be independent. In the bigger personal
computer frameworks, the data, processing stages, output, and the storage devices can be
installed in isolated rooms, different structures or in separate states (Watson, 2014). For example,
the information might be the data on the terminals at a branch of the bank which is then
transmitted to the (CPU) central processing unit to the central station of the bank. Data delivered
by the CPU can then be sent to the world workplaces where the paper is obtained through
printing. Meantime, the disks with the stored information may be retained in the central bank
command, and the copy data continued tape in the distribution centers across the towns or
nations for protection. Despite the likelihood of general change by the devices, from the

minimum complexed personal computer to the maximum. The four major components of the
personal computer framework continue through the input, processing, capacity and the output.
Components of the personal Computers
The personal computers consist of six key elements that include the central processing
unit (CPU), memory, the disk drives, motherboard, processors, the slots, and extensions.
The central processing unit (CPU)- central processing unit (CPU) also called the processor is
viewed as the brain of any personal computer frameworks.it is contained on the separated or
integrated chip or circuit. It forms all the information and guidelines about the data. The central
processing unit is mainly driven by the internal clock. Every moment the clock hits the central
processing unit, it forms one complete guideline. The faster the clock, the snappier and
efficiency the central processing unit processes its instructions and directions. The clock speed is
calculated regarding the MegaHertz (MHz) (Watson, 2014). Most of the personal computers
would possess the catch on the front board marked as “TURBO.”This allows the user to switch
the rate of the processor of the clock. In the last centuries, the projects and programs stumbled
when the process started running at fast hence the inclusion of turbo switch that allowed the
processor to continue working at a slower rate. But for today, this is the unfamiliar application.
Memory-All the personal computers are fitted with the particular type of workspace memory
known as the RAM (random access memory). According to Daskin, (2015), the random access
memory (RAM) is always utilized by the PCs for installing the data and running programs that
are required by the software.it also provides a working framework for the personal computers.
The information (data) of the random-access memory get lost when the personal computer is
turned off or due to instant breakage which could lead to the loss of power. For example, in the

event one is running a word program then the archive and products are chipped away into the
random-access memory (Saldaña, 2015). In sparing the records after the improvements in the
PCs, it is significant to duplicate a file from the random access memory into the disk drives. The
Random-Access Memory (RAM) is located in the chips that are arranged in the motherboard of
the personal computer. Several personal computers are accompanied by one (1) megabyte of
conventional random-access memory. In most cases the larger part of the memory is usable.
Disk Drives-The disk drives provide the method for putting aside information or task. All the
floppy disks are movable within the personal computers. They are characterized by two sizes of
the different inch of 31/2 and 51/4.most of the hard disk drives are installed inside the framework
units and have more storage capacities as compared to the floppy disks. Information...
