This question may sound a little unusual, but it is a question that I wish to ask. I did some testing and experimenting with different settings and configurations of windows 10 on my current computer to look at Windows 10 configurations that best suited my needs. When the configuration results were either not satisfactory or not working, I reinstalled Windows 10 back to the default factory setup and tried again to find a configuration that met my needs. Whenever I rebuild or replace my computers, I generally sell the older parts online through eBay. I do my best to make sure that the hardware components are in working order before I sell them. I understand that both the reinstallation of Windows 10 and the addition of other software and programs can add wear to both my internal solid state drive (where Windows is installed) and internal hard drive discs. My questions are:
- Can the repeated reinstallation of Windows 10 add ware or damage to other internal components such as the motherboard, optical disc drive, USB 3.0 expansion cards, internal WiFi antenna, power supply, graphic card, etc.? (Note: I do not overclock or mess with the BIOS).
- Can the repeated reinstallation of Windows 10 add ware or damage to external components such as the keyboard, mouse, game pad, external hard drive, speakers, display monitor, webcam, printer, headsets, USB 3.0 flash drives, Micro SD cards, MP3 players, smartphone, etc.?
