Hi. I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to hook up a computer. The easiest part to do is to plug in the AC input cable. Because the slot is very recognizable, because it's a very big black slot. Then you'll want to plug in your keyboard. This is also quite easy to do because the tip is often color-coded in a purple color. Then if you have an older mouse, with a PS2 plug, it can be plugged in right next to the keyboard plug, on the top. But if you have a USB mouse, then simply plug into any USB port. Then finally, if you have a WIFI adapter for your computer. That can also be plugged in through a USB port. Or if you want to plug your computer directly into a modem or router, you can use the land cable in the Internet port of your computer. The monitor is a bit more tricky because often, there will be a plug for the monitor in the central port, called the mother board, along with a lot of other plugs. But if you have a separate graphics card, then you'll want to use that plug for the monitor instead of the one directly in the mother board. This will often be situated in the lower part of your computer. Then finally if you have speakers, you'll want to plug them in, in the audio out socket. This is often very easy to do as well, because the end is normally color-coded in green.
