This may sound like a complicated process, but in all actuality, it is very simple.
This guide will help you build your very own laptop computer.
DISCLAIMER: I am not responsible for any damage done to hardware during installation.
I also do not want to be contacted about computer problems. Go to your local repair shop (NOT GEEK SQUAD) and get it fixed. If the computer that is having problems was the one that you built (or tried to) then I will help. I just don't want a bunch of people who are asking how to fix unrelated issues.
I hope you enjoy building your computer. I did. In fact I'm using the computer pictured right now.

Step 1: Buy parts
I used an Alienware base for my computer.
As for the other parts, you should be able to find them separate. Here are the parts you will need besides the CD drive:
-Processor (check the barebones notebook for socket type, new ones should have socket M or P for Intel and socket S1 or FS1 for AMD)
-RAM or Memory (check the barebones notebook for memory type, new ones should have DDR2 style)
-Graphics card (some may have it already built into the motherboard, check to make sure it's not before buying one)
-Hard Drive (check the notebook for hard drive type, new ones should be SATA)
-Wireless card (check the notebook for wireless card type, new ones should be Mini PCI-E)
You should be able to find most of these parts at Newegg.com, or eBay.
