It is important to protect the computer whilst working on it. The simplest way to do this is to wear an anti-static wristband.
Before hand make sure you back up your computer system, in case anything goes wrong!
I’ve uploaded the evidence of me updating TeamSpeak3 onto YouTube, see link below for the video!
You must take into account what the software needs to run, minimum requirements, compared with what your system has, compared to the budget you have when investing in it. The budget has to cater for all the stuff you need and would be commonly done to add a bit on top in case something goes wrong.
Firefox needs a minimum of:
- Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 or later.
- An Intel Pentium 4 processor or later that’s SSE2 capable.
- For Windows 10/8/7/Vista: 1 GHz. For Windows XP: 300 MHz.
- For Windows 10: 1GB minimum.
- Hard disk space: 50 MB of available hard disk space.
All the software is located on my 2TB hard drive. It could go onto my SSD or alternate 1TB hard drive if my main was full.
It is important to keep everyone evolved in the process informed on what’s happening with it, for example a student going on holiday needs to be informed of all that goes on during the time their away. This is so that they can still control, monitor and give input the process. An example from outside college is keeping stakeholders in the loop of what is happening with the business, and informing them of how their money is being spent and what they should expect in returns. Colleagues also need to be kept informed on the happenings because they need to know what to expect and what they are to do when they get into work, but people only need to know on a need-to-know basis. Confidentiality is needed as people don’t often want to be broadcaster on the internet.
The loading facilities need to be the best suitors to the needs of the system, for example a new network without internet access will need a memory stick (USB) or disk as they will not have the availability of using the internet that early in their systems development. If a computer in college for example has no disk drive then it would need to be via internet or USB. It has to be the correct and appropriate loading facility for that system. I used the internet as my loading facility, and my download speed wasn’t the best as it was bottle necking through my wireless receiver, due to it being old and not accepting more than 400kb/s. This was also helped by a slow connection due to being a long way away from my router.
