About this title


Professional edition of a guide to configuring a system for optimum performance. Topics include optimizing a network for Internet access; upgrading for fast disk performance; digital darkrooms; building desktop and server computers from the ground up; integrating the latest tools into LANs/WANs for remote access; exploiting USB and IEEE 1394; benchmark and diagnostic information from motherboard to memory, disks to serial ports; and internal/external bus performance. The two accompanying CD-ROMs contain 30-plus benchmarking, diagnostic, and power tools. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.


This single, albeit heavy, volume contains a profound level of detail. With over 1,340 pages in 41 chapters, 200 pages of finely printed appendices and indices, more than 700 tables and illustrations, a CD-ROM with useful utilities in both the front and back cover of the book, and a fabulous list of almost every vendor of every imaginable PC component, this guide to upgrading holds its own in a crowded field of fine books on the subject.

This volume serves as a desktop reference for everything--including storage and memory upgrades, multimedia enhancements, the special requirements of the roadworthy laptop and notebook, printing, networking, modems, and other peripherals. The book's tabular data is very helpful and, in many cases, the photographic evidence helps with the practical implementation of a particular upgrade. In general, PC Upgrade and Repair Bible contains more data than step-by-step illustrations, which may make the actual machine upgrading process difficult for the reader who needs a lot of handholding. On the other hand, this volume is more comprehensive than some of its more graphical competitors. The reader who called this book "the Swiss army knife of computer books" was dead-on accurate.
