    Unless you're making your own components it's easy.

    The thing normally has a brace.

    Or it should just slot ontop of the CPU.

    It's easy m'dear the parts all slot together nicely... then you have a lovely new machine... trying to load the correct drivers is a NIGHTMARE though especially when Windows insists IT has the correct drivers and nothing will work... :D

    I'm convinced they're purposely designed to be so arcane. Outdated cryptic technology.
    I took mine apart to add some components and it looked like naked 3PO inside.

    I blew the dust out of mine once. Oh, and I put in a sound card. But that's as brave as I ever want to be with computers. I rather like being a tech moron. It suits me.
