New PC Setup--Part 6 of 6
When your new PC first arrives, make sure you open up the case and take stock of what's inside the PC box. Sometimes, as a result of either poor assembly or a shipping mishap, you might find loose connections or unseated cards inside your system.

It's best to check for internal trouble before powering up your system. This procedure will also familiarize you with the method for opening and closing the case. You'll need to know this technique later when you upgrade components.
