I wanted to know if I brought in my build to the store would a tech be able to help me wire it up. I have a ll the components but don't know how to hook everything up and need a professional to show me how to do it so I can properly adjust it in the future. I really don't want my ignorance to ruin my first custom build.
Also, I would have asked this to customer service over the phone but couldn't get anyone to respond.
Hello @Botman and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. We have 26 stores across the cross and only 12 of them have a knowledge bar. The knowledge bar is an area that can do general troubleshooting with customers for 15-20 minutes for free. You could bring it to the store and a knowledge bar rep can inform you of where to plug in cables. But you will have to do the work and plug in the wires. If you go past the knowledge bar limit, then they may ask you to have service wire your computer. Service may charge you $149.99 as a new build due to the components being partially wired.
What MC store are you near? I can let you know if the store has a knowledge bar. If the store does not have a knowledge bar, then it will have to go through service for wiring.
Also look at these links and videos below on wiring your pc.
the Cambridge store is closest to me. I'll tinker around using the links you provided but if no progress can be made I'll just head over for and have them do it for me.
Thanks a lot
@Botman good luck with the links. I think the video is a good one to view over. Grab a snack and a soda, watch the youtube video while taking a few notes. It's over 21 minutes long, but seemed to be a good one.
Additionally the Cambridge store does not have a knowledge bar. But if you need us to, we can have Cambridge give you call (1-3 days on call backs) and they can let you know if they can have a staff member work with you for 20 minutes as a knowledge bar Microcenter service in their store. This would be up to a Store Manager on if they will do this for you. But we could ask. All they can say is either yes come on in @Botman or NO and give the price to wire the system.
Something to think about.
sure, if you could have them call me at some point in the next few days that would be great
@Botman okay, I will be emailing you for some personal information (ex. phone number, etc.). Please respond to our email.
