CIS 118 Disassembly and reassembly of a computer. Okay people, this is where it gets tricky! You need to be using a computer that is not yoru primary machine. The college can provide a machine for you to check out of necessary. If you have an older machine at home you don’t mind using, that is fine too. Just realize that if this exercise is not performed properly, it can to damage to your computer. You cannot complete this lab in one setting. Be prepared to wait for an answer from me before completion (powering on). It may take me 24 hours during a business day to respond. Do not expect a response over the weekend (though I do try). Prepare for this when you are planning to meet deadlines. The lab will follow. You will see my notes in pink and red when you need to take a digital photo and place it in a word document. You may never have done that before, and that is okay. Contact me if that is the case. Between myself and the lab assistants, we will figure out your system and a proper method to accomplish this task. The following is scanned from your textbook, page 146-148.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
