The Compelete Idiot's GuideA (R) to Upgrading and Repairing PCs strikes a good balance as a substantial yet readable guide to your PC's hardware and the peripherals and software that depend on it. It covers, for instance, when and how it is best to upgrade various memory and data storage, motherboards, CPUs or replace a troublesome keyboard or mouse. There's global treatment of the most used Microsoft OSs (Win 98, Me, 2000, some XP) and how to get then to work more efficiently. Even new peripherals and applications get their spotlight, as the author suggests how to prepare your PC for the latest in PDAs, Web cams, gaming devices, all the way to considering the ins and outs of watching TV on your PC. The author covers all this with a sharp eye on teaching the reader how to keep a system running quickly, efficiently and with stability.
