How to Set Up a Desktop PC or Set Up a Notebook PC

Setting Up a Desktop PC

You need to connect all the pieces and parts to your computer’s system unit before powering it on. Once all your peripherals are connected, you can then connect your system unit to a power source. Just make sure the power source is turned off before you connect!

1. Connect the green mouse cable to the green mouse port on the back of your system unit.

2. Connect the purple keyboard cable to the purple keyboard port on the back of your system unit.

3.Connect the blue monitor cable to the blue monitor port on the back of your system unit; make sure the other end is connected to your video monitor.

4. Connect the green phono cable from your main external speaker to the audio out or sound out connector on your system unit; connect the other end of the cable to the speaker.

5. Connect one end of your printer’s USB cable to a USB port on the back of your system unit; connect the other end of the cable to your printer.

6. Connect one end of your computer’s power cable to the power connector on the back of your system unit; connect the other end of the power cable to a power source.

7. Connect your printer, speakers, and other powered external peripherals to an appropriate power source.

Setting Up a Notebook PC

Setting up a notebook PC is much simpler than setting up a desktop model. That’s because almost everything is built into the notebook—except external peripherals, such a printer.

1. Connect one end of your printer’s USB cable to a USB port on your PC; connect the other end of the cable to your printer.

2.Connect one end of your computer’s power cable to the power connector on the side or back of your notebook; connect the other end of the power cable to a power source.

3. Connect your printer, speakers, and other powered external peripherals to an appropriate power source.

Powering On

Now that you have everything connected, sit back and rest for a minute. Next up is the big step—turning it all on!.

1. Turn on your printer, monitor (for a desktop PC), and other powered external peripherals.

2. If you’re using a notebook PC, open the notebook’s case so that you can see the screen and access the keyboard.

3. Press the power or “on” button on your computer.
