A guide to diagnosing, fixing and understanding the personal computer. It contains information on all models from the Pentium Pro to an old 286 machine, covering how to make upgrade and repair decisions about memory, sound cards, data protection and peripherals. There are drawings and photographs of the inside of a computer, and the lay-flat binding means that the reference will stay open whilst the reader carries out repairs.

Review:

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:

* Replace, repair, and upgrade memory, drives, and much more
* Troubleshoot using flowcharts and step-by-step instructions
* Fix the latest Pentium 4 and AMD Athlon machines - or your old 486
