    WHen you first boot up the pc, go into the bios with whatever key it tells you to press. This may be DEL, or One of the F keys. When you enter the BIOS screen, usually blue with yellow text, FInd that tab that has the options like "save and exit" "exit without save" and you should find an option that says "load optimized defaults" or something like it. Choose this option, and save and exit, then your computer will be configured with the optimized settings for the hardware that you have installed. You should be fine from there.

    So do you need to know any of the special computer lingo or anything special?

    When you install all of the parts in the computer, and double check the cables, booting up will require no drivers or software. When you go to intsall windows, just put the cd in the cd rom, and it will automatically boot from the cd. Once Windows is installed, you can install the Chipset drivers, Mobo miscellaneous drivers that came on the cd, and things like that.
    hope that answers your question.

    drivers come after windows is installed

    you dont need drivers or even an operating system to boot up the first time....the bios on the motherboard will boot everything up....every time a comp boots it boots to the bios first...then after that it hands it over to the hard drive so the operating system can be fired up

    Building a computer????

    What do you need to know to boot up for the first time?
    Actually before that do you need to know anything to install the drivers?
