You might be wondering how to build a laptop from scratch. Wonder no more! This blog post will show you how to do just that. Building your own laptop is a great way to save money, and you can customize it to fit your needs. Keep reading for the step-by-step instructions on how to create your very own laptop.
First, the hardware. You will need:
(Note that you can buy kits of parts that are compatible for this project, these are just the individual parts I used myself.)
Step 1 – Buy all your required hardware components.
Step 2 – Open up your laptop’s case and install the motherboard into the bottom half of the case.
Step 3 – Install the CPU (processor) on top of the motherboard. Be sure to apply an even, a small amount of thermal paste onto the processor before placing it onto the mother board-this will help dissipate heat throughout your laptop.
Step 4 – Add memory (RAM) into your laptop’s motherboard by snapping in the RAM sticks in the appropriate slots, the motherboard’s manual should have a picture indicating the type of RAM to use.
Step 5 – Connect your laptop’s hard drive to the ports on the motherboard the hard drive will usually be compatible with your laptop without any adapter needed, but check your component’s manuals if you are unsure.
Step 6 – Connect your laptop’s power supply (charger) to the motherboard – the charger will usually be compatible with your laptop without any adapter needed, but check your component’s manuals if you are unsure.
Step 7 – When all of your hardware components are installed in their proper places in the case, load it up and prepare for software installation.
Step 8 – Boot up your laptop and install the operating system (in my case, Windows) on the computer. Instructions for this vary depending on the operating system you choose to install.
Note: You may have some difficulty getting a high-end graphics card to run with a laptop’s power supply if it comes from a separate power supply outside of the case. In this case you may need to purchase a graphics card that is compatible with your laptop’s power supply.
Now you know how to build a laptop from scratch and also fix your broken laptop screen and make it work like new again. You can even sell your old or broken laptop with the parts back separately to make some extra money on the side. Enjoy!

I’ve been thinking about building my own “laptop” for a while now. After realizing that the price of laptops has increased drastically over the past few years, I decided to build one myself so it would be exactly what I wanted and save me some money in the process.
I went through several different ideas: buy pre-made parts and assemble them into a computer with performance that fits my needs; buying pre-assembled hardware that is not yet outdated, or even buying outdated components (like an old laptop motherboard) and refurbishing them by fixing faulty components such as bad memory chips.
In the end, I decided to go with option three because I couldn’t find any pre-made parts that fit all of my needs.
When choosing components to build your computer, you will need to figure out what you want in your laptop. Since this article is specifically for building a laptop, the only things you need are the following: motherboard (the thing with all of the components on it); processor (the brain of your computer); RAM (memory); battery; power supply; screen; keyboard and mouse; and chassis. Everything else can be collected over time or found very inexpensively second-hand. You can even use an old laptop for most of these components if you wish! Just make sure it doesn’t run Windows Vista – anything after Windows XP should work fine as long as the battery is good.
The first thing you should do when building a computer is to figure out what kind of performance you need. You’ll need to know this before you can go and buy all your components, otherwise, it will be really hard to make sure everything fits together properly and works well. Work through this article (and maybe check some online resources) and think about how you would like to use your computer: Gaming? Office work? Internet browsing? If there are programs that you know you absolutely must have or games that require specific hardware to play any good, write them down because they might affect which components you buy.
The second step (and this will take a while) is finding the right parts. Find the individual components on sites like newegg.com (US) or dealextreme.com (international). Compare prices, performance, and ratings of the parts you are looking for to find out what’s best for your price range.
The third step is finding good deals on bundles of components that will work well together. It is often possible to find good deals on bundles, especially during holiday sales or after new parts are released. If you don’t want to spend the time finding your own parts and building up an order, feel free to send me a message.

In conclusion, when building your own laptop from scratch, make sure to take good care when handling all the hardware components-they can easily be broken or damaged if mishandled in any way. And most importantly, have fun!
