The first issue is what kind of computer you have, e.g. a tower case or a desktop. I first check the back for volts setting. Most new computers or cases come in with 215 volts and you have to flip the button to change it. Look at back for a diagram. Most have ps2 mouse connections, and a ps2 keyboard connection, some have usb connections for both. I connect the mouse, keyboard, printer, parallel port, speakers, usually green, power cord. Make sure it is off before you connect the power. Modem from phone jack, most of the time is line side of modem. Some have a network card installed so you would plug your rj45 line into the nec card. Some have USB connections.
