Description: You've got hardware troubles. Maybe Windows 95 has turned your "screamer" into a cement mixer and you need a RAM upgrade yesterday. Or you've finally decided to spring for a Pentium, and a little chip replacement surgery is in order. Or your old computer and new printer are not on speaking terms and you'd rather not pay some teenage know-it-all to mediate the dispute. Whatever. You're smart, reasonably coordinated, and you know that you should be able to do this yourself. But you hesitate, fearful of frying your hardware and sending up hundreds of hard-earned dollar in a puff of smoke. It's time to call in a specialist: Alfred Poor, hardware guru and do-it-yourself coach to millions, will help you face your motherboard with confidence. Get the executive briefing on every component of your system: CPU, memory, hard drive, monitor, printer, CD-ROM, sound card, keyboard, mouse, and more. Find out what it is, how it works, and how to tell a good one from a bad one. Apply Alfred's hands-on test to figure out where the problem is when things go wrong. Get how-to advice on upgrading any component and learn which upgrades will deliver a noticeable performance improvement, which aren't worth the money, and when it's best to just trade up for a whole new system. Most importantly, learn how to experiment intelligently with your PC to identify and fix just about any hardware problem you encounter! Every page has something you can use immediately. This book is packed wall to wall with advice, warnings, tips, bug reports, workarounds, and the kind of nitty-gritty explanations that could come only from someone who eats, sleeps, and breathes PC hardware.
