Instructions for Storyboards

In these areas, you will find examples of what you would write in these areas. It's important to get some information in each area so that when you begin to design the document you are not trying to generate information at the same time. Defining the problem and designing the document at the same time leaves you at high risk for not including important information. Take the time to separate the two procedures. You'll be glad you did.

Next week you will develop some of these areas more fully. You can work on this document this week and next week. Try not to feel pressured to complete it during week 5. You need to do the sketch first and ensure you fully understand process, procedure, and steps.

If you want to see an example set of instructions, look in chapter 15.

NOTE: These instructions are not perfect. Mimicking them is not a good idea.

Audience Analysis:

One of the simple upgrades to perform on your computer is the CPU upgrade. Is a CPU upgrade really necessary? To answer this question, you have to consider the tasks that you regularly perform on your computer. If your computer is at most 1-2 years old and all you do is surfing the web, checking email, and writing documents, then you probably do not need a new CPU. On the other hand, if you play the latest video games, edit image, or encode audio/video, then a CPU upgrade may be appropriate.

Upgrading the CPU involves determining the effectiveness of the upgrade, selecting the right CPU for your system, uninstalling the existing CPU, and installing the new CPU. In this process, we will demonstrate how to upgrade CPU step by step.

Warnings, Cautions, Dangers, Notes:

Caution: Make sure to ground yourself (by wearing antistatic hand strap) before starting on the process. Also make sure to place the tower on hard ground, covered with papers.

Instructions Storyboard: Process Description

Title of section: This process has 5 sequence procedures, including taking out the old CPU and put in the new one, please follow them carefully.

Procedure One Heading and Description:

Open the PC Case

The screws to open a PC tower case are always located on the back edges. If the case has screws, these will need to be removed before the case cover can be removed.

Once screws from the back of the case have been removed, push the side cover of the tower case towards the back of the computer. If you do it right, either the side of the computer case will slide off, or the cover will be completely removed.

Procedure Two Heading and Description:

Take out the Heatsink

All modern CPU require an active heatsink, a chunk of finned heat-conductive metal with a fan a mounted on top (for heat dissipation purpose). The only rule of thumb for removing a heatsink is to study the latching mechanism then use your thumb to release it.

Procedure Three Heading and Description:

Take Out Old CPU

Modern CPU legs are locked in place. We first have to release the locking lever and lift it up to the vertical position. The CPU is then lifted straight upward and out of the socket.

Procedure Four Heading and Description:

Install New CPU

The new CPU is installed in the socket and locked into place with the locking lever; just like reverse the procedure of how we remove the old one is the first place. Remember to match the pin #1 of the socket to pin #1 of the CPU, otherwise, the CPU won't fit in the socket.

Procedure Five Heading and Description:

Install New Heatsink

Put the new heatsink on top of the CPU that we have just installed. All modern CPUs require some sort of thermal material be added to the top to fill in the "microscopic voids" in both the CPU die and the metal bottom of the heatsink. Secure the heatsink by latching the far side of the retaining spring over the center nub on the opposite side of the socket.

With the active heatsink in place, the final step is to reconnect the power cable of heatsink fan to the CPU fan point on the motherboard.

Procedure Six Heading and Description:

Set Up PC for first use

Go into BIOS setting to make sure that the system recognize the new CPU, install any chipset driver for the CPU if necessary. Most of the time, everything is supposed to be done automatically. The system will recognize the new CPU right on the first time we start up the OS, just like plug-and-play USB device.

4. Completely remove the cover case and put it away.

End State: The CPU case is fully opened, which show everything inside.

Descriptions and Definitions:

In this procedure, you open up the PC by removing the case on one side of the tower (usually on the left side). The screws to open a PC tower case are always located on the back edges. Most of the time, one Phillips screw driver is enough for this process, since all the crews to open the case are identical.

Warnings, Cautions, and Notes:

* Wear antistatic strap before begin on the process

* Place the tower on hard-ground with paper at the bottom.
