I'm not sure where to begin. Building this PC has been more stressful than it should have been...? I think I had more problems than most people run into. It's been a month since the actual build but I'll try to recollect everything that has happened. Sorry in advance if I misuse a term, this has rapidly become one of my favorite hobbies and corrections are appreciated.
My first problem was the CPU fan. No matter what I did I could not get the screws to line up straight with the threading on the motherboard. Even trying to align it (without any tension in the screws, hovering over CPU) they did not line up right. I'm not sure if this is how it was made, but being my first time I was reluctant to try and force it. No video or explanation showed the force I had to use to get it in place. I screwed one side in, then went across("star pattern ") and screwed that in. Even still, I always had a screw that was off by a centimeter and I had to push the whole fan over to get the screw to bite the thread. That was the only true problem I encountered while actually building the PC.
Multiple problem occurred installing drivers/OS/whatever. Installing windows from the USB which had the creation tool on it, I was prompted with the internet section. I plugged my Ethernet cable in without second though and was good to go after entering the password. The video I watched (and many others) required a wifi dongle to get internet as they needed the Ethernet drivers. This didn't cross my feeble mind as I then tried installing my Ethernet drivers. I lost connection. So albeit, a mistake I caused myself. What I had actually downloaded was the gates to hell onto my computer. I'm sure I did something else that contributed to my problems, but this is what happened. My programs would not show up when opened. It was like my screen didn't have a boarder. When hovering over google chrome I could see I had a tab open, but when I clicked on it it didn't show up at all. Then well I'm not exactly sure what it was technically but basically everything got extremely big. The windows start logo in the bottom right was basically my entire screen. I figured my only option at this point was to do another fresh install of windows. Turned the computer on and off multiple times hoping whatever it was would fix itself. It didn't. Cried myself to sleep that night and woke up determined to fix the issue. Somehow, probably god himself seeing how unjust this whole situation had gotten that one nerd just wanted to play video games at an actual 60 fps, it went back to normal size. Still had no internet so I knew something was still wrong but hey, at least I could see. I IMMEDIATELY reset the PC with a fresh install of windows. Thankfully the second go around I pulled my head out of my tukis and was able to get everything running. Or so I thought. Trying to plug in my mic I find out (guessing) my front audio jacks are broken. I know it's not the mic, it works when i plug it into the back directly into the motherboard. I've tried changing the output and making sure drivers are up to date and anything else I read off google but nothing seems to have worked.
The biggest question I feel I can answer about my experience is would you do it again? As an open heart patient with two mechanical valve I can ensure you I would in a heart tick. Ha ha bad jokes it's my post get over it. But really, owning a PC is much more of a blessing than I initially though it would be. My PC has allowed me to venture into other hobbies and interests I might not have taken up if I didn't have a PC. This post has become more than I initially was going to write, if you stuck with it until the end thank you.
Edit: Last photo is whats happening now with the monitor. I'm 99% sure it's the monitor, when I turn it off and on it fixes itself. But it's not a one time thing, happens every day now. Going to return it. Picture of the keys is to show so spots darkened on the key caps. I can live with it, I guess.
