    Installing a Video Card: A Memoir - Warming Up

    (Page 2 of 4 )

    The first thing that struck me when the new card arrived was that it was a "card" at all! So if anything goes wrong Iím sure I can return it under the Trades Description Act. Anyway, the manual said something about ďalways read the instructions,Ē which I found totally impractical; surely you only need to read them once.


    I was wrong.


    I can now chant the entire installation process as a mantra to the devils that live within the case.


    I made sure that I had all the tools needed (including the big one: me). When I say all the tools I actually mean both of the tools: the very large, flat-headed, wooden handled screwdriver I got from a boot fair for 50p [Editorís note: half a Pound. Most Americanís wonít know this], and the small cross headed (Phillips) screwdriver. Actually thatís a lie, and since we are not married, I donít want to lie to you; it is a collection of various interchangeable heads for a socket type thing, all kept together in the cheapest of plastics wallets. Itís the sort of thing kids buy for their dad at Christmas with their 50p pocket money, and still have enough change for fags (cigarettes). Armed with all the kit, I started to unscrew the back of the case, being careful to remove the skin from my knuckles as I did so. My, how I laughed as I wound the plaster around my finger.
