Default Some questions

OK, I have questions about building a computer-

1) What does it mean to "configure your motherboard"?

2) How do you fit a proccessor in? Has anybody got any detailed guides for this step with pictures??

Default Re: Some questions

1) no clue
2) it just drops right into the socket. I think there is a little clamp, you lift it, drop the processor in, and push down on the clamp locking it into place. There should be some 'missing' pins, look for the pattern on the processor and socket, thats how you know which way it drops in.
