Jim's HOW To's of Hardware Upgrades

[Back to Jim's Home Page]  [Back to Double-Hammer Computer Services]

Everyone that owns a computer will at one time or another need to (or maybe, just plain want to) upgrade their system.... be it a faster Processor, bigger Hard Drive, more Memory, add or replace a Floppy Drive, or add a faster CD Rom.


NOTE: These pages are intended to give you a basic idea of what is involved in adding/changing some hardware. If it is above your level of technical ability to do the actual work, then DON'T DO IT YOURSELF... take it to a qualified Computer Repair Shop to do it!

While I will attempt to give you accurate information on what to do and how to do it, I will not be held responsible if you didn't read the above "NOTE", or if you do go into your computer and "mess it up"!

Rule #1: UN PLUG IT!!!!

Always disconnect electricity before removing your computer case!

Do not attempt to service monitors.
Monitors may retain high voltage for days... even when unplugged!!
