The procedure of starting up a new computer is rather easy, without any complications. However, sometimes customers receiver ‘strangely worded’ instructions and pictures in the package with the actual product, which leave them confused and unsure about how to put the whole structure of a PC together with different wires and cables and so on.
In most cases, the picture of your computer which comes on the box of the product does not look like the exact copy of the same model, which you own. Also, the wires and connectors might not seem similar, as well.
In this guide, you can read about how to set up your newly arrived PC with all the parts that come with it. We assume that you have another computer, as what is the point of publishing instructions online for a PC, which is not yet running, if you cannot access it?
First of all, connect your keyboard and mouse together. Nowadays, pretty much all keyboards and mice can be inserted into a USB port to be functional with your PC. Some are wireless, but there will still be a receive that can be plugged into one or more USB ports.
Note: the plug will only fit into a USB port on your computer that is complementary to it and matches it. If you can choose between blue or black USB ports, pick black. Blue ones use the new USB 3.0 standard, and it would be sensible to leave that for using with fast storage devices, e.g. USB flash / hard drives.
We recommend that you insert the keyboard and the mouse into USB ports on the back side of your computer instead of the front.
