How do i replace the graphics card/ motherboard in my hp G60-121WM. Need disassembly steps
1 . Before beginning any work on your computer, be sure to turn it completely off and then remove all connected cords or cables.
2 . To get to the old graphics card the side panel of your computer's case must be removed. Most cases will have two screws that must be taken out at the top and bottom of the panel. Some cases will alternately have a twist off knob on the side instead of screws that simply needs to be turned several times until the panel slides off.
3 . Once the panel is removed it is time to take out the old graphics card. The card will typically be held in place by a single screw connected to the case. Remove this screw and then simply pull the card straight out.
4 . The new card is installed easily by pushing it into the correct slot on your motherboard and then putting the screw back in place. Depending on your motherboard, the card will either be connected to a PCI, PCI Express, or AGP card slot. The slots do not change the way that the card is installed, but it is important to make sure you have the correct type of card for the correct slot. A PCI card will not fit in an AGP slot and vice versa.
5 . Place the side panel back on your computer's case and re-attach the screws or turn the twist knob until snug. Plug back in any cords or cables that were removed and power your computer back on.
6 . A new graphics card will need to have drivers installed so that it works properly with your operating system. If your graphics card came with a CD, insert the CD into your computer and follow the on screen prompts to install the software. If your graphics card did not come with a CD then Windows may prompt you automatically to search for drivers to install
Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
