Occasional problem seems to occur at times and you want to go straight to the computer repair shop for repair.

This is why I made this article for you.

What is your first move as a beginner?

Knowledge on technical and repair should be a good source.

Making good technician friends could help you and asking some technical issues from your PC repair shops, electrical or electronic shops.

Sometimes, you may feel embarrassed if you cannot ride on to some electronic terms and the best thing is to find your preferred book as your source.

Find the good computer book for your own benefit is always the best idea.

You study few things and ask your technician for additional information.

Next step would be an actual application of your knowledge.

Familiarization of the computer hardware should be on this step.

Try to pull out hardware from inside of your CPU and then put it back again.

Even Beginners Can Repair A PC

You must be careful of course, if you are a beginner. You repeat it many times to master the particular hardware.

Then, you change hardware to be removed and attached for practice purposes.

You have to build your confidence. It is as easy as one, two and three.

You may have spent a lot of money for buying that hardware that’s why I said you must be careful.

To learn is to risk a bit. Later, if it works, it means you are having a good start.

What is the better alternative?

Another idea to practice your knowledge is to get some old computers. You ask your friends and your friends’ friends or family members if they have old PCs like Pentium 1 or 2. They are obsolete so they may give that to you or pay just little amount if they want to.

Now if you have one, you have to get oriented with the different parts and how that certain hardware fits to their slots. Processors have many styles and types. Learn their shapes and sizes.

Basically you will know what are processors, RAM, mother board, power supply, video card, LAN card, USB port, DVD/CD ROM drive, keyboard, mouse and the monitor.

What is the paramount of every electronic repair

The paramount of every electronic repair is the safety and the security. Inside the CPU has the voltage range of only 12 volts to 5 volts DC usually so you don’t have to worry.

The only stronger voltage is at the back part which is connected to the main source.

But if the CPU is plugged in or even the monitor is plugged in, a slight and not fatal electric shock from the ground current may felt around the CPU body.

This 110 volts AC electric shock could be removed by wearing an antistatic wrist trap which can be bought in the nearest computer parts shop in your area.

But all in all, just by removing all the plugged in devices will take away that voltage pressure.

Note: Turn off all connections when working electronic parts. If you have to turn in on, watch out always for burned devices and overheated electronic parts to avoid accident.

When it happens, turn it off and replace those damaged parts.
