    Overview from the Author

    If you want to learn about PC, this is the book for you. Have you ever gotten the dreaded blue screen of death in Windows, which could be an exception error or a Windows Stop error. This book will explain what these errors are and how to troubleshoot them. Besides going over DOS, Windows 9x, Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP, this book gives you an easy to understand yet thorough understanding of hardware and software and how to troubleshoot problems with both. It also explains the differences between all of the processors produced by Intel and AMD and explains the differences between all of the different types of RAM. In addition, if you want to pursue the A+ certification, this book has everything for you to take and successfully pass the exams and help you find the job that you want. As you probably already know, the PC market is a fast paced, fast changing arena. The only way to succeed in this career field is to learn the basic concepts of the PC (hardware and software), apply those concepts in a real-world situation and be willing to retrain yourself often through out your career. Therefore, as a college teacher for many years and working as a PC support/network administrator person for a local college, a city hall, a computer company and a chip manufacturer, I am able to share my experiences in a way that you can quickly and easily learn the material so that you can pass the A+ PC Technician exam, get a job as PC technician and to successful troubleshoot PC problems. Each chapter is written in an easy to read format with many pictures. To keep you updated today's issues and to show you where you can get help in troubleshooting today's PC problems, I have included many useful Internet links and have include many real-world examples. At the end of each chapter, you will find review questions to help focus your efforts and prepare for the A+ exam and hands-on exercises to reinforce and apply what you have just read about. At the end of book there are several appendix for quick reference and a handy glossary. For now, I would like to say good luck on your current and future endeavors and I thank you for considering purchasing my book.
