Sure, some parts are obvious, and even I know how to install the memory, but other parts are less intuitive or just more dicey, and the instructions had a granularity of "Put in memory, CPU, video card, then connect everything, congrats, you're done!"
@rixx Yep, sounds typical.
I remember the first time putting memory in, had to use way more force then expected (they changed that, no force required :).
Computer manuals, as far you get them, are made for people who know already, they're more technical details that are different between systems.
For proper manuals you need to look at community made stuff(like howto videos or so), not from manufacturers.
component manufacturers haven't cared about end-user documentation for 20 years or so.
@wmd Yeah, I know. It's an accessibility nightmare and it annoys me a lot.
@rixx Poor documentation is I think one of the bigger problems in IT-infra. But I also wouldn't rely on companies for that anyway.
But good job and good luck getting it all to work!
