Information Sheet 1.1-1
Plan and Prepare Unit Assembly

Learning Objectives:
After reading this INFORMATION SHEET, YOU MUST be able to:
1. Explain on how to Plan and prepare unit assembly
2. Specify the basic component of system unit

This information sheet will be discussed for how to plan and prepare
unit assembly, and to identify the basic component of the system unit and
classified according to their function and uses.

Planning and Preparing Unit Assembly

Preparation

Proper preparation is the key to a successful build. The very first thing
to do when considering building a PC is to make a solid plan of action for
yourself such as choosing the correct parts and setting aside the time (more
than you think) to work on your project.

Things you will need to do are the followings:

 The gathering of all the necessary tools

 A lot of wasted time and effort can be avoided by preparing for


what you are doing and making sure you have everything you
need before you get started. An ounce of preparation equals a
pound of cure which means if you are well prepared you won't
have to put out a lot of additional effort to get your project done
with by chasing after things you forgot.

 Finding a proper nonmetallic surface area to work on prior to proceeding


with your project.

 Having a non-metallic work surface such as wood will also help


in the prevention of lost parts due to static electricity that can
be created by two metallic surfaces touching one another.

CBLM Page 10 of 85
Developed by: SFIST
Jellane M. Señora
 Always work in a well-lit moisture free environment

 Remember to always work in a well-lit moisture free


environment with rubber soled shoes preferably to cut down on
static energy displacement.

 Having a grounding (Anti-Static) strap

 Another important part of the preparation is having a grounding


(Anti-Static) strap attached on your wrist and grounded out on
the computer whenever you are handling any of the system
parts to further minimize the chance of shorting out your
system hardware. This can be a costly lesson to be learned the
hard way.

 Read the manual

 Read the manual that comes with your motherboard cover to


cover as this is a very important step in familiarizing yourself
with your motherboard which is essentially the heart of your
computer. Get a relaxing drink, then read the manual again.
The manual can explain most of your hookup questions if you
look close enough inside of its covers.

What is Computer Hardware?


Computer hardware is the collection of physical parts of a computer
system. This includes the computer case, monitor, keyboard, and mouse. It
also includes all the parts inside the computer case, such as the hard disk
drive, motherboard, video card, and many others. Computer hardware is
what you can physically touch.
A computer system consists of two major elements: hardware and
software. Computer hardware is the collection of all the parts you can
physically touch. Computer software, on the other hand, is not something
you can touch. Software is a set of instructions for a computer to perform
specific operations. You need both hardware and software for a computer
system to work.
Some hardware components are easy to recognize, such as the
computer case, keyboard, and monitor. However, there are many different
types of hardware components. In this lesson, you will learn how to
recognize the different components and what they do.

Types of Computers
Before looking at the various components, it is useful to distinguish
between two different types of computers: desktop computers and laptop
computers.

A desktop computer consists


of a computer case and a separate
monitor, keyboard, and mouse. As
the name suggests, this type of
computer is typically placed on a
desk and is not very portable.

A laptop computer has


the same components but
integrated into a single,
portable unit.

Prepare the basic parts of the System Unit

System Unit
It is where all your computer
peripherals are attached such as
mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers
and etc. It is composed of 6 basic
components of system unit, namely;
motherboard, processor, ram, hard
drive, video card and power supply. It
is often called as CPU but it is not, the
CPU (central processing unit) is the
processor itself.

Motherboard
The core of the system, it
really is the PC. Everything else is
connected to it, and it controls
everything in the system. Common
form factors are ATX and MicroAtx.
MicroAtx is now the most popular
among PC users because of its
smaller size.

Central Processing Unit


An integrated circuit that
accepts coded instructions for
execution. Processor is the brain of
the system. There are two types of
processor; with pins and the pin-less.
The two name features of CPUs
that you need to be aware of are its
speed and type.
The processor speeds of most of
today's PCs are measured in GHz
(GigaHertz). 1 GHZ means that it can
execute approximately 1 billion
instructions per section.

Memory
It is the system memory often
called as RAM (random access memory).
This is the primary memory, which holds
all the programs and data the processor
is using at a given time. All memory
accessible at any instant (randomly) by a
microprocessor.

Hard Drive
The primary archival storage
memory for the system. It is where we
saved our files and data including our
operating system, antivirus and other
applications. There are two types of
hard drive; we have PATA (Parallel
Attachment Packet Interface) then SATA
(Serial Attachment Packet Interface).

Video Card
Controls the information you
see on the monitor. This is also
called the video card or graphics
adapter. On many recent low-cost
desktop systems and virtually all
portable systems, video might be
built into motherboard or included
as part of the motherboard’s chipset.

Power Supply
The one that feeds electrical
power (voltages and currents) to every
single part in the PC. The latest
power supply support both SATA and
PATA connectors.

Computer hardware specifications
Are technical descriptions of the computer's components and
capabilities.

 Processor speed, model and manufacturer. Processor speed is


typically indicated in gigahertz (GHz). The higher the number, the
faster the computer.
 Random Access Memory (RAM), this is typically indicated in gigabytes
(GB). The more RAM in a computer the more it can do simultaneously.
 Hard disk (sometimes called ROM) space. This is typically indicated
in gigabytes (GB) and refers generally to the amount of information
(like documents, music and other data) your computer can hold.

You may not use every single one of these tools in every installation,
but it is best to have all of them on hand in case you have a use for
them.

Warning: Using incorrect tools for a task (such as turning a screw


with a knife blade) can cause equipment damage and bodily injury.

Step 3: Open the Case

Figure 3 Figure 4 Figure 5

Open the computer case by removing the side panels. Find the screws
that hold the side panels in place and remove them (shown in figure 3
circled in red). The panel is removed by first sliding it back (figure 4) then
lifting it away from the case (figure 5).

Warning: Case may have sharp edges. Handle with care to avoid injury.

Step 4: Prepare the Case for Assembly

Figure 6 Figure 7

Figure 8 Figure 9

Three things need to be done before assembly begins:

 Remove any parts or packaging materials that may have been shipped
inside the case (figure 6).
 Remove the cover for the optical drive. On our case, we will be removing
the cover on the highest drive bay to mount our DVD drive as shown in
figure 7. Do this by pressing in the retaining tabs shown in figure 8.
 Make note of the cables pre-installed in the case. These should be front
panel connections for features such as the power switch, audio jacks and
usb ports. If they are not labeled, consult the manufacturer’s
documentation and label them yourself now before other parts are
installed in the case (figure 8).

Step 5: Ground Yourself

Figure 10 Figure 11
Put the grounding strap on your wrist (Figure 10) and connect the
other end to the computer case. If your strap is not equipped with a clip to
hook to the case, find a place to wedge against the metal as shown in figure
11. This will prevent any buildup of static electricity on your body from
damaging the computer components.

Caution: Static electricity can ruin computer components. Always wear a


grounding strap when handling any internal components.

To install the motherboard we need parts that should have been
included with your purchased components:

 I/O Bezel is a trim panel installed in the back of the case that surrounds
the interface ports on the motherboard. It should be included with the
motherboard. Figure 12 shows the contents of the motherboard box.
 Standoffs are installed in the case screw holes to create a riser that
separates the case and motherboard. The screws install into the
standoffs as shown in figure 13. Screws and standoffs should be
included with the case, but it is a good idea to order these items just in
case they aren't included.

Follow these steps to install the motherboard in the case:

1. Install the I/O bezel plate into the opening in the back of the case (figure
14). It pushes in from the inside.
2. Install standoffs in the case. The standoffs screw into the motherboard
mounting holes shown in figure 14. Check the screw hole locations on
the motherboard for exact placement.
3. Lower the motherboard into the case and align with the I/O bezel.
4. Install the screws.

Figure 15 shows the motherboard installed in the case. It works best to


leave the screws loose until all of them have been started and the board is
aligned with the bezel.

Caution: To prevent damage to the motherboard it must only contact the


standoffs and screws. All of the standoffs and screws must be installed.

Step 7: Install Hard Drive

The hard drive is the device that stores all of your data. It is 3.5"
wide and needs to be mounted so that you can gain access to the cable
connections on the back (figure 16). If that is not possible you may
need to connect cables before you install the drive. To mount the drive:

1. Find a 3.5" drive bay to install the drive in. If you have trouble finding a
place to mount the drive consult your case documentation for
suggestions.
2. Slide the drive into place until the screw holes on the sides are lined up
with the holes in the case.
3. Install the screws.

Step 8: Install Optical Drive

Figure 18

The optical drive is 5.25" wide and is installed in the drive bay that
we removed the cover from in a previous step. Cable access
considerations apply to this drive also. To install the drive:

1. Slide the drive into the drive bay until the screw holes are lined up and
the front of the drive is flush with the front of the case (figure 18). Make
sure that it is orientated correctly.
2. Install the screws.

Figure 19 Figure 20

Figure 21

The CPU is the brain of the computer. It is installed on the


motherboard in the socket shown in figure 20.To install the CPU:

1. Find the corner marking that designates pin 1 of the CPU as shown in
figure 19. On this AMD brand processor, the corner is marked with an
arrow. Consult the manufacturer's documentation for specific
information about your processor.
2. Lift the small metal rod next to the socket as shown in figure 20.
3. Find the corresponding marking on the CPU socket and insert the CPU
so that the markings are lined up.
4. Push the rod down to lock the processor in place (figure 21).

Step 10: Install RAM

Figure 22 Figure 23
The RAM is the temporary memory location that the processor
works from. Permanently stored data is pulled from disks and stored in
RAM while the processor works with it. The memory is easy to install:

1. Set the RAM board in the socket as shown in figure 22. Check to see that
the notch in the board is in the correct location. If it is not, turn it
around 180º.
2. Press firmly on both ends of the board to set it into the socket. Make sure
the tabs lock into place as shown in figure 23.

Caution: Pressing the boards in when the tab is not aligned could cause
damage to the RAM boards as well as the motherboard.

Step 11: Install the CPU Fan

Figure 24
The CPU fan is really a combination of a heat sink and fan together.
The unit draws heat away from the CPU. To install the fan:

Jellane M. Señora
1. Place thermal compound to the CPU following the instructions provided
with the compound.
2. Set the fan assembly on the CPU with mounting tabs aligned.
3. Pull the locking rod down on the fan assembly to lock into place.
4. Connect the fan assembly's power connector to the motherboard. Consult
the manual to determine proper placement.

Caution: Failure to apply thermal compound will result in insufficient


cooling and will cause damage to the CPU and/or motherboard.

Step 12: Install Case Fan

Figure 25

The case fan is usually installed on the back panel of the case. If the
fan mount is not obvious consult the case documentation. To mount
the fan:

1. Align the mounting holes by holding the fan to the mounting pad on the
inside of the case as shown in figure 25. The fan needs to be mounted so
that it blows air out of the case.
2. Insert the screws from the outside of the case and tighten.

Step 13 Install Power Supply

Figure 26
Consult your case documentation for details and then follow these
directions to install the power supply:

1. Align the mounting holes in the case and power supply as shown in
figure 26.
2. Insert screws and tighten.

Step 14: Connect Cables

Figure 27
With all of the components installed in the case, the jungle of wires
can be daunting. It is important to consult the motherboard manual in
order to make sure proper connections are made. There are two kinds
of connections, power and data.

 Every device that has been installed needs power. In figure 27, the power
supply connectors are shown. The motherboard has two power
connections, and there are two connectors specifically for SATA devices
(drives). The other connectors will run fans and other non-SATA devices.
 Data cables connect drives and front panel devices to the motherboard.
Please consult the motherboard documentation for the exact placement
of connectors.

Warning: Incorrect connections can damage components and cause bodily


injury.

Step 15: Wrap-up

Figure 28

Now that the components are completely installed, the last thing to do
is to reinstall the side panels on the case. The computer is now ready to be
turned on and to have software loaded on it. If the computer has problems
starting up, check all component connections and mounting to make sure
that you have hooked everything up correctly. Consult individual component
manuals for specific troubleshooting information if problems persist.

STEP 16: Starting the Computer

Make sure your computer is plugged into a power source


 If you're using a desktop computer, you cannot turn it on without
first plugging it in; laptop computers can run on battery power, but
should be plugged in to negate a low battery or other problems while
starting up.
 If you're plugging into a surge protector (e.g., a power strip) instead of
a traditional wall outlet, you'll also need to make sure that the surge
protector is on.

Locate your computer's power button


The power button symbol resembles a circle with a vertical line
through it. Power button location will vary from computer to computer, but
you can typically find the power button in one of the following locations:
Desktop - On the front or back of the CPU, which is the box-shaped
piece of hardware to which your computer screen connects. Some iMac
desktops have the power button on the back of the monitor or the keyboard
instead.

Press the power button


 You don't need to hold down the power button to turn on the
computer. You should hear the computer's internal fan and disk drive
begin spinning; after a few seconds, your computer's monitor will also
light up and display either the start-up screen or the login screen,
depending on whether the computer was off or sleeping.
 If you’re desktop computer doesn't turn on, try pressing your
monitor's power button as well. It may be the case that your computer
is on but the monitor is not.

Trouble shooting

Computer won’t turn on:


Make sure on the back of your computer the I/0 switch on the power
supply is switched to the I. If this does not work, look at your front panel
wires. Make sure they are connected to the correct pins and in the correct
orientation. You will have to refer to your motherboards manual for the
proper connections.
Fans won’t work:
Sometimes there is an un-used pin for case fans. Make sure your
connectors are connected to the correct pins and are in the correct
orientation. The second image is an example of what one of these fan
connections look like.

Lights won’t work:


Look at where all the small wires for your front panel connect, make
sure they are on the right pins and in the correct orientation. You will have
to refer to your motherboards manual for the proper connections.

Configuration of BIOS

Learning Objectives:
After reading this INFORMATION SHEET, YOU MUST be able to:
1. Define hard boot and soft boot
2. Describe the function of BIOS
3. Identify the step on how to change the Boot Order
in BIOS

This information sheet will discuss for how to perform and configure the
BIOS Setting.

Booting a Computer
When we turn on a computer, it is known as ‘boot’ or ‘booting’. There are
two ways to boot a computer,
 Hard boot
 Soft boot

Hard boot refers to switching on a computer by turning on the electrical


supply using a switch. A computer will run all the self-test after a hard boot.

Soft boot refers to booting on a computer using its power button or software
commands
(Such as Ctrl-Alt-Del key combination). Soft boot skips the self-test that take
place after a hard boot. Hence, it is faster to boot a computer with a soft
boot.

BIOS (Basic Input Output System)

The Basic Input Output System, usually referred to as BIOS, is


software stored on a small memory chip on the motherboard.

What Is the BIOS Used For?

BIOS instruct the computer on how to perform a number of basic functions


such as booting and keyboard control.

BIOS is also used to identify and configure the hardware in a computer such
as the hard drive, floppy drive, optical drive, CPU, memory, etc.

How to Access BIOS

The BIOS is accessed and configured through the BIOS Setup Utility. The
BIOS Setup Utility is, for all reasonable purposes, the BIOS itself. All
available options in BIOS are configurable via the BIOS Setup Utility.

The BIOS Setup Utility is accessed in various ways depending on your


computer or motherboard make and model

Step by step for how to change the Boot Order in BIOS

Step 1
Restart the Computer and Watch for the BIOS Setup Message

Changing the boot order of the "bootable" devices on your computer, like
your hard drive or bootable media in a USB port (e.g. flash drive), floppy
drive, or optical drive, is very easy.

The BIOS setup utility is where you change boot order settings.

Turn on or restart your computer and watch for a message during


the POST about a particular key, usually Del or F2, that you'll need to press
to ...enter SETUP. Press this key as soon as you see the message.

Don't see the SETUP message or can't press the key fast enough? See
our How to Access the BIOS Setup Utility guide for lots of tips and tricks for
getting into BIOS.

Note: The boot order is a BIOS setting so it's operating system independent.
In other words, it doesn't matter if you have Windows 10, Windows 8,
Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Linux, or any other PC operating
system on your hard drive or other bootable device - these boot sequence
change instructions will still apply.

Step 2

Enter the BIOS Setup Utility

After pressing the correct keyboard command from the previous step, you
will enter the BIOS Setup Utility.

All BIOS utilities are a little different, so yours may look like this or it may
look completely different. No matter how your BIOS setup utility appears,
they are all basically a set of menus containing many different settings for
your computer's hardware.

In this particular BIOS, the menu options are listed horizontally at the top of
the screen, the hardware options are listed in the middle of the screen (grey
area), and the instructions for how to move around the BIOS and make
changes are listed at the bottom of the screen.

Using the instructions given for navigating around your BIOS utility, locate
the option for changing the boot order.

Note: Since every BIOS setup utility is different, the specifics on where the
boot order options are located varies from computer to computer. The menu
option or configuration item might be called Boot Options, Boot, Boot Order,
etc. The boot order option may even be located within a general menu option
like Advanced Options, Advanced BIOS Features, or Other Options.

Jellane M. Señora
Step 3
Locate and Navigate to the Boot Order Options in BIOS

Any hardware connected to your motherboard that is able to be booted from


- like your hard drive, floppy drive, USB ports, and optical drive - will be
listed here.

The order in which the devices are listed is the order in which your
computer will look for operating system information - in other words, the
"boot order."

With the boot order shown above, BIOS will first try to boot from any devices
it considers "hard drives," which usually means the integrated hard drive
that's in the computer.

If no hard drives are bootable, BIOS will next look for bootable media in the
CD-ROM drive, next for bootable media that's attached (like a flash drive),
and finally it will look on the network.

To change which device to boot from first, follow the directions on the BIOS
setup utility screen to change the boot order. In this example BIOS, the boot
order can be changed using the + and - keys.

Remember, your BIOS may have different instructions!

Step 4
Make Changes to the Boot Order

As you can see above, we've changed the boot order from Hard Drive shown
in the previous step to the CD-ROM Drive as an example.

BIOS will now look for a bootable disc in the optical disc drive first, before
trying to boot from the hard drive, and also before trying to boot from any
removable media like a floppy drive or flash drive, or a network resource.

Make whatever boot order changes you need and then proceed to the next
step to save your settings.

Step 5
Save Changes to the BIOS Setup Utility

Document No
Date Developed: Issued by:
October, 2017
CBLM Page 62 of 85
Developed by: SFIST
Jellane M. Señora
Before your boot order changes take effect, you will need to save the BIOS
changes you made.

To save your changes, follow the instructions given to you in your BIOS
utility to navigate to the Exit or Save and Exit menu.

Locate and choose the Exit Saving Changes (or similarly worded) option to
save the changes you made to the boot order.

Step 6
Confirm Boot Order Changes and Exit BIOS

Choose Yes when prompted to save your BIOS configuration changes and
exit.

Note: This Setup Confirmation message can sometimes be cryptic. The


example above is pretty clear but I've seen many BIOS change confirmation
questions that are so "wordy" that they're often difficult to understand. Read
the message carefully to be sure that you're actually saving your changes
and not exiting without saving changes.

Your boot order changes, and any other changes you may have made while
in BIOS, are now saved and your computer will restart automatically.

Jellane M. Señora
Step 7
Start the Computer with the New Boot Order

When your computer restarts, BIOS will attempt to boot from the first device
in the boot order you specified. If the first device is not bootable, your
computer will try to boot from the second device in the boot order, and so
on.

Note: In Step 4, we set the first boot device to the CD-ROM Drive as an
example. As you can see in the screenshot above, the computer is
attempting to boot from the CD but is asking for a confirmation first. This
only happens on some bootable CDs and will not show up when booting to
Windows or other operating systems on a hard drive. Configuring the boot
order to boot from a disc like a CD, DVD, or BD is the most common reason
for making boot order changes, so I wanted to include this screenshot as an
example.
