The Barnes & Noble Review
Who knows the problems ordinary PC users run into most, the questions they ask most often? It just might be Geeks on Call, the PC maintenance firm that made over 100,000 service calls in 2005. This book brings together their best bite-sized PC solutions: the ones that’ll do you the most good in the least time.

Some of this is classic troubleshooting: “Why can’t my wireless adapter find my network?” “I turned on my PC, and nothing happened.” “My new printer doesn’t work.” Some of it’s about the core applications you’re probably running: “How do I convert a Word document to PDF?” And some of it is just plain good advice: “Should I upgrade my existing PC, or buy a new one?” If you just want things to work right, and you’re no techie, this is a very handy resource. Bill Camarda, from the January 2006 Read Only
