The blood-stained, bloody computer accessory can be removed with a simple flick of a switch, but it’s also an annoyance.
The problem is that these things aren’t disposable.
You can’t just toss them out and expect them to come off cleanly.
So how do you remove the blood-smeared mess from your computer, and how do those bloody cords and components come apart with no effort?
We’ve covered how to remove bloody computer parts, but let’s dive in with some tips for removing those blood-splattered cords and parts.1.
Remove the blood from the cords before you start to remove the motherboard.
Remove cords and connectors before you begin removing the motherboard, because the blood will be on the motherboard’s metal surface.2.
Pull out any wires.
The first time you pull out a cable, the blood should be off the end.
If it’s not, take it out and remove it.
If you can’t find a wire that’s not blood-spattered, try to find a black or dark color that matches the color of the cable.3.
Remove any chips.
The blood can be visible on the bottom of the chip if it gets on the surface.
Remove it before you get too far.
You don’t want any of the chips getting on the underside of the motherboard and causing the motherboard to be damaged.4.
Remove chips from the back.
There are a few different methods to remove chips from a motherboard, but the most common is to simply pull the back off and pull it out with a utility knife or a pair of pliers.5.
Remove a memory card.
Most memory cards are made of metal and can come apart easily with a knife.
But you can also use a screwdriver to remove memory cards with a screw driver.
If the card is a memory stick, it may require you to remove it with a wire brush, and you can get away with a couple of fingers.6.
Remove hard drives.
Hard drives are generally plastic and can be easily removed with some force.
If a hard drive has a metal cover, you may need to use a pair or a string to pull it apart.7.
Pull the power cord.
The power cord is an electrical cord that runs from the computer to the power socket.
The cable will need to be removed to make this process easier.8.
Remove your case.
If your case has a hard plastic cover, the case will need some effort to be uninstalled.
Pull it off and remove the plastic.
If there’s a metal case, you’ll want to remove that too.9.
If cables have wires, you might have to take them out to make these steps easier.
Remove wires with a small, sharp, pliers, and take a couple pinches to make sure they’re not sticking.10.
Remove memory chips.
You’ll likely need to remove these chips from your motherboard and computer if you have a motherboard that has an Intel chipset, but you can use a similar process to remove a memory chip from a computer.
You may need a screwdrivers to remove some of these chips, but most of the time they should be easy.11.
Remove motherboard components.
Most computer components are metal and you may have to remove them if you don’t have a hard case.
For example, some hard drives use magnetic connectors, so removing these components is easy.
However, many components are more durable than this and can’t be removed by a screw.
You should take out the motherboard component with a pliers if you can, but usually these will come apart when you remove them.12.
Remove parts from the motherboard with a socket wrench.
If they’re made of plastic, you can easily remove them with a pair a plier, or you can remove the whole assembly with a wrench.
You won’t need to replace all the screws that hold the components together, so if they come apart, it’s easy to replace them with new ones.13.
Pull a power cord out.
Once you’ve pulled out the power cords, it might be easier to remove other parts of the computer, like a motherboard or a hard disk drive.
You could use a socket tool to take out a hard disc drive, or even remove it entirely, but if you remove any hard drive, you won’t be able to get it off.14.
Remove power connectors.
You might not be able the whole computer to be pulled out of the case.
You will need a pair, or a small flat-head screwdriver, to take apart a motherboard.15.
It may be possible to remove battery and hard drive battery connectors by pulling the power cables and then pulling the battery connectors out of their sockets.
However the power connectors will probably come apart from the socket and you’ll have to use the same tools to take it apart again.16.
A keyboard can come out easily with some push of a button or a plumber’s screwdriver.
