Synopsis: The author demystifies the inner workings of today's PCs and presents simple maintenance, repair and upgrade strategies that all PC owners can use to protect their investments and avoid expensive service fees. In very direct, straightforward terms, Laplante furnishes the reader with easy, step-by-step instructions for servicing all PC components, as well as for improving systems with a wide variety of accessories and peripherals.

From Library Journal: This book is essential for owners of IBM PC/XT/TA computers (or their clones) who need to maintain, upgrade, or repair their equipment. It assumes no previous experience with electronics and access to tools no more complex than a screwdriver and a pair of pliers. Though instructions are generic, they are clear, and the book warns that the computer's own instruction manual should be regarded as the ultimate source. The numerous photographs and drawings illustrate such things as installing floppy and hard disk drives and replacing a power supply. Basic concepts, such as computer architecture, disk storage, and input/output devices, are covered in the first chapter. Repair procedures, including preventive maintenance, follow in subsequent chapters. Keyboard replacement, memory installation, and hard-drive management are some of the other topics discussed. Software issues are not ignored; configuring DOS and combating viruses are dealt with, as are the various popular software utilities, such as PC Tools Deluxe and Norton Utilities. A glossary and bibliography round out this very useful volume. What it does, it does well, giving computer owners considerable assistance in tracking down the cause of a problem. The book offers solid advice that lets would-be technicians know what is user-repairable and what is not. Stopping just short of the soldering iron, it tells them when to quit and call in the professionals.
