A guide to diagnosing, fixing and understanding the personal computer.

Do you have the urge to take the casing off your Windows-based PC and tinker around, but you're a little intimidated? If so, get this book first. The text is clear and well-indexed, and this book will give you the information, and then, confidence, that you need. (It would also be a great book for anyone who wants to help recycle old computers for schools or non-profits). Two Torx blades up!

From the Back Cover:


You can do it yourself!

Armed with this manual, the right screwdriver, and a few other simple tools, you can keep your PC up to date and running smoothly.

  • Motherboard types, cooling techniques, and microprocessors from oldest to newest
