Okay, as you all know I have a huge interest in computers, which is one of my passions in life. My dad has a very old computer, which hasn't be used in a while. It's operating system is the legendary Windows 96.

As a Task, and a test of my knowledge, I'm going to dissemble the whole computer and then put it back together.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, if I did not connect all the components together correctly would the power just trip or would something happen. Since this is such a old computer I'm not taking any risks.

Yes, the power would trip when the house blows up.

Serious post would be nice. I don't want to put my health in danger if I make a simple mistake.

Why..? Just use the computer the way it was meant to be used: Put together to play games or do work.

Test Subject, not really the smartest comment to put on a Tech Discussion Section.

I want to learn how to put a computer together and how to dissemble it. I'm doing this because I have a interest in computers and wouldn't mind having a carrier in IT.

The worst your likely to do is put everything together in a way that it is not going to do anything when you press the power button.

While a good start poking around inside a PC is not actually going to help you that much as most people can do this already. People able to debug problems with hardware are very common.

Far less common are people that have any experience with the tools of the trade for basic IT work within a business. If you are looking to get into professional IT then I would recommend reading up on remote access systems, such as VNC, RDP and common things used in professional IT deployments- ie group policy, active directory and domains.

I don't actually want a Job in IT. It was a mistake to put that although, the reason I want to learn is just for myself. Fixing my own computer, adding parts, and if so custom building a computer for friends. So such books I don't think will be needed. Through out the process of assembling the computer back together I will be monitored and if I have done something wrong I will be told, and told why it was wrong. That's how the process will go.

I'm only doing this for personal use, and I will be monitored. If I do something wrong I will be told and then will work out what I have done wrong.
