Overview

Efficient, cost-effective troubleshooting and repair techniques in the ultimate hands-on reference for technicians.

With this book and your technical skills, there is no computer problem you can't correct. You'll find nearly 400 problems completely detailed and explained, as well as hundreds of POST and diagnostic codes to help you identify and cure even the most obscure maladies. In short, you simply cannot find a more comprehensive, useful tool than this essential guide. And to supplement the wealth of written material, this unique reference contains one of the largest collections of diagnostic freeware, shareware, and utilities available - all ready to use on the included disk.

Covering IBMs and compatibles, author Stephen J. Bigelow completely dissects hardware and operating systems, giving you the information you need to diagnose systems and perform diagnostics on both computers and peripherals. Setting up, optimizing, and upgrading PCs are also covered.

Three handy sections help you find what you're looking for and get answers fast: Section I is a technician's primer, which provides a technical foundation for the rest of the book. The heart of the book, Section II on system data and troubleshooting, offers a logically organized, extensive array of documented service procedures. Section III is filled with real-world advice and procedures for maintenance and support.

Adding to the value of this incomparable resource, nine time-saving appendices give you resource and reference information, useful forms, a sample technician's certification test, and much more.
