Tools Required For a PC

Essential Tools Required While Working on a PC


Whenever you start working on a PC, you need to ensure you have the correct set of tools. So here's a short list of essential tools you need to have when working on a PC.

Philips Screwdriver

This is the most important tool for me as a computer hardware enthusiast. All computer parts are connected by screws from add-on card slots to drive bays and PC casings. Remember to get a screwdriver that does not have a magnetic tip magnetized objects inside your PC may damage some circuits.

Cable Ties

Whenever we open up an old PC, we will see mess of wires inside. Here's where the humble cable tie (also known as zip ties) came in really handy. Organize those untidy cables into bundles, route them through specific paths and tie them up. This not only improves the look, it also helps airflow.
 

Tweezers

How are tweezers useful when working with a computer? When you accidentally drop a screw into the deep, dark regions of the motherboard. Use those tweezers to reach into tight spots or for retrieving that lost screw. Tweezers are also used for removing or changing jumpers on hard drives, optical drives and the motherboard.
 

Lint Free Cloth

If you have an old computer, for sure dust would be accumulated inside that PC. This can cause lots of problems - in particular, it can clog up fans and air slots, raising the PC's temperature. Using a lint free cloth you can wipe off that dust from your case or components.
 

Grounding Strap

Static electricity can cause severe damage to electrical components in your computer. Prevent this by using a grounding strap. This is usually a Velcro strap with a metal contact to help discharge any static charge built up on your PC.
