About this title


Trouble with your PC? What do you do if your hard disk crashes or all you see are black lines on your monitor? With this handy ""Troubleshooting"" guide, it's easy to pinpoint -- and solve -- your own hardware and software problems. Fast! Each section opens with a troubleshooting chart to help quickly diagnose the source of the problem. It offers clear, step-by-step solutions to try right away, plus a full chapter of things to do to stay out of trouble or learn a new trick. Continuous support via the Troubleshooting ""Latest Solutions"" Web site provides monthly updates on additional problem solving information. Books in the ""Troubleshooting"" series are colorful, superbly organized, and easy to read, giving even novice users the confidence to fix it themselves -- without sending their PCs to the shop or wasting time on futile trial and error.


Anyone who's ever used a service manual to identify and correct a flaw in an automobile will find the format of Troubleshooting Your PC familiar. This book, which aims to show its readers how to fix problems related to the hardware components of their Intel-compatible personal computers, relies on troubleshooting trees similar to those that have long appeared in automotive handbooks. To find the page that explains how to solve your particular problem, you work your way through a sort of flow diagram, answering yes-and-no questions and taking different paths through the diagram based on your answers. The flow diagrams are more like tables of contents than real aids to troubleshooting themselves, but they are effective in guiding the reader to the appropriate page.

Each problem or condition gets its own spread of a page or two. On those pages, readers find a section called "Source of the problem" that explains, in prose, what's going on and what strategy is appropriate for fixing the trouble. A second section, called "How to fix it," is a step-by-step procedure that walks the reader through the recommended fix. Both of these sections would be stronger if they relied more heavily on diagrams, since not everyone can visualize mechanical procedures that are described in words. Nonetheless, the material here should help you straighten out most consumer-fixable hardware difficulties on post-1997 personal computers. --David Wall

Topics covered: Personal computer hardware troubleshooting for people who aren't experienced in the area. The authors address the resolution of critical problems--blank screens at startup, ominous noises, that kind of thing--and hardware upgrade procedures, such as installing hard drives and DVD-ROM drives.
