Tips and comments

Some important tips while you try hardware restoration on your computer are that you always remember to turn the computer off. Like any other electronic device your computer can give you a high electric shock. Most power supply units have a switch behind the CPU that completely kills system power make sure that is off before you start working. For extra safety remove the plug. If you see any smoke or smell something emitting from your computer stop whatever you are doing then and there. Remove the PC from the wall and let it cool for at least five minutes. Remove or change the device that was faulty as soon as possible. While working on your computer’s hardware restoration and repair make sure that you remove all hand jewelry. Most metals are conductors and jewelry will cause an extra chance of you be electrocuted. Avoid the capacitors; these are parts inside a computer that can store electricity inside them even after the computer is completely switched off. Do not touch any part that says "No serviceable components inside”, some parts should just not be messed with even by the most skilled technicians.
