I bet there's a good few people ,You can actually pay for Expert Installation at a higher price than the product itself. I wonder how many people take them up on that offer?!
I bet there's a good few people ,
most if not all of us here know how easy it is the change the RAM ,
but i know a few people that know nothing about PC building or maintaining or even upgrading them, they only know how to turn on the PC and booked a holiday haha
I'm on the look out for a new job , this could be it !!! lol
Holly sh*t - that is bad !!Yeah you are not wrong there. Even people who have used them for years have no idea on the insides, much like a car I guess to the layman vs a mechanic, you drive it, don't fix it.
I gave one of our relatives a bunch of RAM I had (16GB of DDR3 I had in the parts bin) last week. He managed to not push it in the slots right even with a handwritten guide I did for him, specific for his board. And now he has a missing hard disk and a missing CDRW in the BIOS.
I suspect he has knocked out a cable, but I got this video (screenshot below) in return when asking him to check them...

I have no idea on how to start diagnosing that remotely, and this is his PC he has had for a decade of upgrades by a local "professional" PC shop that has now retired.
I think I counted at least 6 molex to something convertors in the video...
I am still having nightmares about it all TBH

It's £10 cheaper there than elsewhere if you use the code BUT the price has been hugely inflated by over £21 so it isn't the 20% cheaper that it should be using the.code....... for a genuine £35 saving I would possibly buy the mobo now but for £10, I will wait esp as I won't even be able to put a new CPU in it easily. (Loads of places such as scan selling for £159.99 )Will need a bios update for new CPU's, where is it cheaper ?
