Build a PC Will it affect my earlier desktop settings?

Dear friends,
I was wanting to open up my desktop CPU, with the case. I wud be disconnecting all the input wires to avoid any kind of shocks. But, I thought, if I wud be removing all its parts I.e. HDD RAMdisk, motherboard... , and if I join them back to its earlier locations (just to get an insight of my CPU in detail), wud it affect my earlier work done on my Desktop? Wud I have to re- install the OS? Will it change any of my earlier used settings in the Desktop?
Please advice...

Doing this could cause the computer not to "see" the hard drive any longer, thus not being able to boot up properly. Is it really worth doing this?

It might be better to just look at a picture of your processor on the internet. You'd need some thermal paste to put your processor back on properly, and at this point I doubt you have that. :)

The answer to all or your questions is no, but Tmagic650 does have a point and he's correct, but if you had access to your computer's BIOS and know what you're doing, you wouldn't have many issues.
