A comparison can be made between working on the family car and working on the family computer. Initially both tasks might seem daunting however, with experience and a little guidance most repairs can be undertaken, hardware components installed or clock speeds souped up or adjusted for optimal performance.

For the first timer, the process can seem to be fraught with danger, and in terms of doing more damage than good it can be. If you fol
