In the video I decided to watch was over an gaming computer. In this video it
showed him carefully taking the computer cords out the monitor. (How to take apart
computer parts and put them back together). I could spot any errors when disassemble
the computer monitor. One thing I did notice is that he didn't power on the computer
device. So I can't say if is craft was successful. Another YouTube video I watch was
( How to un-build a computer). In this video he explained how to carefully take apart
a computer. One thing he explain was the tower could damage the mother board if
not handle with care. One video that I watch had a very good camera angle helping
better to see how take apart a dell monitor. For disassemble a computer it needs to
isolate it means first unplug it. Remove all wires and cables like power cable,
keyboard, mouse, modem, USB etc. so cabinet should be stand alone and ready to
dissemble. Unscrew the cabinet and remove the outer side panels.Once cabinet opens
remove the CPU fan which reside on top of processor for heat sink. Fan has power
supply from motherboard and need to remove it first. Power supply has maximum
wired section with other components. So unplug every wire connected to the power
supply. Like hard drive power cable, CD/DVD power cable etc. and then unscrew the
power buttons holding the cabinet.Now time to remove the hard drive, hard drive fic
with cabinet using screw. So, unscrew the hard drive and pull down the table so it
can easily remove from the tab.Now start removing the Ram from motherboard, RAM
has 4 slots or 2 slots. To remove press down the tabs which holding ram in position
from both sides.To remove motherboard, first remove screws holding connectivity
center which having single screw. For motherboard, it has several screws holding it
exact 7. The video that I have selected shows a technician dismantling an HP
Notebook 15 laptop. There are a few mistakes that he has made that in the teardown
or reassembly process. Firstly, while dismantling the laptop, he did not use the names
of the parts that he was removing. This could be quite confusing for a person who is
new to dismantling an electric system like a laptop. Such a dismantling approach by
him would reduce the insight for a viewer on what he was doing exactly (Hp
Notebook 15 laptop disassembly, take apart, teardown tutorial, 2020).
The second mistake that the technician did during the laptop dismantling tutorial video
was the rough handling of some of the parts. While removing the underlying parts of
the electronic system, he could have been more cautious (Hp Notebook 15 laptop
disassembly, take apart, teardown tutorial, 2020). If a person who is new to
dismantling a laptop would handle the system in such a rough manner, there are
chances of damage or other technical issues. Thus there are a few issues that he could
have taken care of during the laptop dismantling process. Nevertheless, the video
would be more helpful for a person who has prior knowledge of laptop dismantling. It
seemed like reassembling the parts to form a laptop would be a more challenging
thing to do. In the video I watched, other than the person not knowing the power
connectors for the HDD and that the thermal paste is put on the processor to assist
the heat sink in dissipating heat inside the machine. I was expecting to see an issue
of the ESD band not being used and was rather surprised he lead with it being used,
although it should have been attached to the case of the PC he was working on and
not the dry erase board he attached it to. In the video that I watched I didn't see any
obvious and glaring mistakes that the tech made with the deconstruction or
reconstruction of the computer. I'm going to rewatch the video several times to see if
maybe I just didn't see the faults and then I will update this response. On this video
that i came about, the technician seem to have little knowledge of what he was doing.
He did somewhat of a great job explaining how to disassemble a computer and
assembling it back together. I like the idea of how he first put on his ESD strap.
Always wearing an ESD strap is important while working on a computer, because it
could cause an electric shock to your body and may cause more damage. I may not
know much but i do know that he made a mistake by touching the cords with his
fingers and also not placing the screws he took out in a designated area.
At the beginning of the video he barely knew the names of the cords he was taking
out. He wasn't able to explained clearly what he was taking out and doing, because
he didn't know much about their names. He did a pretty good job dissembling the
computer but could've taking more proper care handling the mother board. He
should've use a magnetic screw driver, it helps keeps the screws together. In the video
that I watched on the entire process of taking apart a desktop computer, the technician
made a couple mistakes that I could easily point out. However there were also some
other concerns that I had as well. So the first mistake that I saw is when he
unscrewed the "black box", he never actually put the screws in a certain designated
area and he also never avoided touching the cards with his fingers. I'm not really sure
what kind of computer he dissembled, but he wasn't very careful about it. I don't
know if I would want him working on my computer if I had something wrong that
needed fixed. The video watched for dissembling dell inspiron small was quite
interesting but while dissembling the PC technician made few mistakes as follows.
Screw kept in order:
While dissembling technician start removing the screw but in video, he did not keep
them in order or together. Sometimes while removing things we forget to know which
screw was at which position.
Power supply
Technician kept power supply at the end to remove but to remove all other parts of
the motherboard must remove the power supply. As power supply all wires are
connected from power supply to other parts.
RAM:RAM is assembled in slot and has nob to remove also it shows same from both
end and for new peoples it is hard to know the difference which side goes to which
ways.Processor unit: Processor is main part of the motherboard and need extra care to
remove it. Initially processor have little glue applied on processors back to hold the
processor properly. While removing processor technician did not mentioned anything
about it. In this video I think he did a great job explaining everything, and putting
the computer back together in a fast paced manner. I loved how the first thing he did
was put his ESD strap on. Not wearing an ESD strap could cause a shock to your
body and may even cause fatality. When building a computer and taking it apart
wearing an ESD strap should be the first thing you do.
Although I really did enjoy this video, there were some minor mistakes he's made.
One of them was not knowing the name of the cords at the beginning of the video.
When building a computer, it's always important to know each cord you're dealing
with and each port you'll need to use for the specific cord.
Another mistake he made was not using a magnetic screw driver. This may be minor
and not needed, but in my opinion it will help you to not drop and lose screws so
easily.
Another small mistake he made was not handling the mother board with proper care.
In the video that i came across, the gentlemen that pieced together the computer did
an okay job. They made sure that everything was compatible and fit properly. They
took most of the precautionary steps to make sure that nothing bad happened. In the
video, they did not use an anti-static clamp to ensure that there was not an accident.
It is easy to overlook or forget to put on, but it is better to be safe rather than sorry.
The second mistake that I noticed in the video was the amount of thermal paste that
was put on may have been just a little too much. It is important to not put too much
thermal paste on or it could overflow into the CPU socket. If you look closely in the
video there is a little bit of overflow on the edges, but nothing major. They did
everything else perfectly fine, from installing the SSD to the GPU. I didn’t realize
how many of these’s take apart and put back together videos . I’ve been going
through couple of these online. So I just randomly just choose one out of the bunch.
Because there is far to many of them online. So this is the video that I chose
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jauZNI_3AO4.The technician seem like he was pretty
knowledgeable. But I noticed certain things at the beginning the video. One of the
things from the very start of the video was the set up. He really wasn’t that organize
from the start. Of course he had something to open up the computer. But ,the whole
set up of everything was just not right.Being that it is in tutorial video on how to
open and put back together. Do you want to make sure that you have the necessary
tools and proper set up. The next thing I saw as he opened the computer. He
suggested the viewers to rub their hands on something. In his case,He rubbed his
hands off the top that he took off the computer.This is to avoid is to electrostatic
discharge. The video had the perfect angle of the whole taking apart and putting back
together process. The only downfall about the video was that they were not talking
during the video. It would have been really helpful if they were explaining the detail
of each part as they took it apart. So that motivated me to find another video. In the
second video I came across, the process was clear. They were describing the parts as
they were removed. The only let down was that they did not put it back together,
which was okay since in the first video I saw them put it back together. After
watching both videos, I had no idea how many different components a computer had.
While this is all new to me, I look forward to all this class has to offer me. I just
hope to be able to keep up. This is an ever growing field and is always changing,
that is what I look forward to. Two mistakes made by the technician that i noticed
immediately was he was not naming the parts as he removed them and did mention
what tool he was using. I think the technician could have been way more gentle with
the inside of the notebook, he seemed be to be tugging and vastly removing things. If
i were making a disassembly video i would want to show where every item was
placed when taking it off, naming the parts, just give a little more insight on what
your actually doing. I chose the video for a hp Notebook 15 because i have used one
before and really liked the computer and apps it had. But overall disassembling a lab
top seems easy, its seems like the putting it back together part would be very
difficult. I would definitely have to be super organized when taking one apart, Just so
i could easily know what goes where. The technician definitely needed to take notes.
In this video I found a couple things right out of the gate. He wasn't using anything
to protect the components from static. Static is something that needs to be prevented
because it can cause a lot of damage to the computer components from something
like walking on carpet. These can be remedied by using plastic static protection bags.
Another thing that I noticed was the lack of organization he did not use labels or
trays for small parts like screws. Labeling will also help you reassemble the computer,
taking pictures as you go can help you backtrack what you have done. The biggest
issue I was noticing is the way he was handling the components. He was kind of
bumping them into other parts which can cause a lot of damage to both of them. The
way he handled the CPU was a bit scary, when you dont line up the CPU pins
correctly or if you have them in the wrong spot, when you latch it down the CPU
pins will bend making it unusable and voiding the warranty. The video that I chose is
from 2016 and shows the disassembly of an HP Notebook. The first thing that I
noticed is that the technician isn’t wearing an Electrostatic discharge (ESD) bracelet.
By not having an ESD bracelet the technician runs the risk of shorting out any of the
components. I also don’t think that the surface he is using to disassemble the laptop
on is an anti-static surface as well. One of the first things that I read in the textbook
was the importance of preparing your work area as this will ensure a successful
outcome. I also noticed other things that the technician should be doing, but were not
shown, such as not making notes and not making sure all of the parts are in a safe
place. Taking notes will help in case you run into a problem and have to go back to
troubleshoot. Having clear notes will make that a lot easier, especially for newer
technicians. It’s also important to keep all of your parts together so that you don’t
lose them because you may not have the same part available to replace it. This is the
video i chose, it is kinda of old but i was able to notice some mistakes he made
while taking it apart and putting it back together. Even thought the camera angles are
just ok its obvious he is not using a magnetic tip screw driver, and not to meantioned
it was the same one the whole time, this is not necessarily a mistake but it would
have made the process easier. I also noticed while trying to take parts off he did not
remove all the necessary cables first. This lerson was all over the place and did not
do one area at the time. This person was also working really fast and did not take his
time being careful. While assembling he forgot which items went first on occasions
and was not doing it step by step or in any order, he was just putting things on as
he grabbed them and did not really explain his methods and procedures. I chose this
video because it was a tower and since it was old i was able to see errors early. The
video I choose was well explain this guy got years of experience with computer
device, I notice in the beginning of the video he disconnect all power and separate
the battery from the laptop then he already prepared his tools a pliers, black stick,
philip head screwdriver, dental pick, blades, cotton swab and a tray for storing the
screws. The process of breaking down a computer if not experience can be super
long. He was that experience with computers he jump start and unscrew the back of
the device then the screws instantly stick to the Phillip head screwdriver because it
has a magnetic tip, he then place the screws and other parts in the trays then after he
flip over the laptop and open up and unscrew and remove the key board from the
motherboard connector. He even went further and and unscrew the motherboard and
separate the wires that are connected on it. I think If I should take apart a laptop I
would have to take pictures or small videos clips of each steps just not to get
confused with disassembled and assembled a laptop. This video has taught me a lot
which in the future I can reuse if I ever work with computer repair. First thing I
noticed is that the laptop is on a tile floor or counter, probably in someones kitchen.
Even though the area is clean, when working with something like a laptop or pc, I
would have prepared better by setting up a workstation. Second thing I noticed was
that the technician is not wearing a ESD strap which would protect from electrostatic
discharge that can damage chips and destroy motherboards. I also noticed that the
screwdrivers that are being used have magnetic tips. Magnetic tips could cause
damage to motherboards or other important components. In this video the technician
also puts all the removed components on the floor, even the RAM. RAM is a very
important component and should be handled with more care, best practice is to use an
anti static mat or bag. Lastly all the screws were just laid on the floor asking to be
lost or used in the wrong location. I would recommend a better video if looking for
best practices when working with computers. I want to first start off by saying I hope
all is well with everyone and their families during these scary times. It has been years
since I seen a PC be built from scratch, so I decided to watch more than 1 video.
While both video tutorials offered great insight into what it is needed to assemble the
PC, the videos both offered some vast differences. The first video I watched was
geared more toward the assembly of a desktop computer. The person doing the video
first showed the parts he was using to build the computer. However, the person never
spoke and just pointed to where the parts were going with no real explanation of the
part and the functions the parts provide to make the computer run. Another thing I
noticed was he did not even turn the computer on, so I did not know if everything
was installed properly or correctly. The second video I watched was geared toward
laptop assembly and installing a CPU. The host of the video was showing different
CPU chips that plug into the motherboard using pins. He also explained the two types
of main CPU sockets the LPA and the PGA style sockets which I thought was very
informative. The only real error that I noticed was the second video only really spoke
on the CPU Sockets and nothing else really. I am excited to begin this class and I
hope to learn a lot of information that will be beneficial to my career in the future.
The first thing I noticed is he didn’t mention anything about backing up important
data. I assume this is because his whole intention was to reuse parts for a different
computer build. The other issue I saw was there wasn’t any ESD protective strap
used. These straps can be very useful and help reduce unwanted damage that could
have been avoided. I sometimes use these straps at my current job to be sure nothing
is harmed while installing or upgrading. I like in the video how he has little pieces of
advice like to make sure you remove all M.2 drives under heat sinks. I also noticed
in the video he used a magnetic hardware cup for the hardware, so he doesn’t lose it
while working. In this video he breaks down three different computer and, they are
two different styles of cooling for the processor. On the second computer he shows
how the thermal past can harden and be difficult to remove the fan that’s directly
attached to it, whereas the other computer used liquid cooling style to help the
processor stay in working temperatures. This is a tear down video but on the same
channel you can also watch how the other PC’s are put together. The benefits of
computers are copious. They make research, communication, shopping and a host of
other tasks easier, quicker, and with greater accessibility to reach beyond your local
region. But what if you are away from the computer system and would still like to
access all of those possibilities? You could always lug around two or three
components and hope you find a power source (and maybe Internet access) to get
things done. It is doubtful that anyone would do that willingly. Fortunately, there are
alternatives in mobile devices. Laptops, tablets, smartphones, e-readers, cameras and
GPS have enhanced the computing experience to a greater level. On the video I
watched, the first mistake I found was that the person disassembling his computer
didn't use an ESD strap before disassembling his computer. Without an ESD strap, it's
possible for static electricity to ruin any computer parts being removed or replaced.
Even just a small amount of static electricity could be damaging. The next mistake he
made was, he didn't keep his screws in a cup or anything and just left them rolling
around on the table. Screws are easy to lose and if one of them is missing then it's
possible for parts to fall. If a screw is lost inside the computer then it could scratch
one of the components or cause something to short circuit. Another mistake this
person made was, after removing the screws and deciding to remove the motherboard
from his computer, he picked it up by the motherboard's heatsink instead of by the
sides. By removing it like this he risks creating an air gap between the heatsink and
processor. These air gaps can cause the processor to overheat as the heatsink isn't able
to remove the heat effectively. In this video I found one minor mistake and something
they could have used, I thought that could help them. The mistake I noticed is that
they did not clean the old heat sink off the CPU and put fresh on when they installed
it back because it could cause the CPU to overheat, if the heat sink is not spread
evenly across the CPU. The item they could have used to help them is a magnet tray
for the tiny screws you take out because I have lost a few when I was building mine,
also they could have used a magnetic screwdriver or a magnet on the end of a wand
to get in the tight spots when they drop a screw because I know they did in this
video that they edited out. The over all video was well put together I thought. I like
at the end that they explained what each part did and even had a diagram for each
part of the motherboard. I learned that they had a North bridge and a South bridge on
a motherboard and I did not know that until now.
ESD can cause damage to computer equipment if not discharged properly. Follow
proper handling guidelines, be aware of environmental issues, and use equipment that
stabilizes power to prevent equipment damage and data loss. I like how immediately
he was focused on the safety of himself, as well as the unit. He began by hooking up
the ante static wrist cable. The next step I thought was to hold power button down
for a few seconds to discharge any stored energy, but he went right into unhooking
the SATA cable. Another issue with disassembling the components was that he was
unaware of the terminology for SATA motherboard connection. Removing the RAM,
he suggested not touching the contacts, this was helpful. Personally I feel like i would
have to label some connections until I get more familiar with the process of
elimination. During the assembling procedure, I learned a lot about the terminology. I
worked with a company years ago that allowed me to disassemble computers and part
them out. I was able to recollect some of the procedures. For the most part it seems
as if the material is pretty explanatory, especially while assembling the RAM, using
the guide or RAM socket, assuring proper assembly. The video that I choose is the
same builder that I used when I built my first system. I built my system about 2
years ago and ever since that day I have never looked back. I built it because I
needed a better computer and it was going to be for school and for some games as
well. I think that Kyle builds computers on another level, I believe that he builds
them as professional and aesthetically pleasing as possible and following his guide I
have built 2 systems with zero issues. One of the things I would suggest would be to
try out all the components before you install them to the case to make sure that
everything powers on and works. Another advice I would be to make sure that you
have make the back section where the cables are as neat as possible. The reason is
because when something is not working as you want it to be work and need to find
the cable. It will be a whole easier when the cables are organized, and you can see if
something is disconnected or damaged.
