Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Chapters are labeled with the symptom of a problem, such as computer crashes, noises, blank screen, and various kinds of drives (CD, floppy, Zip, etc.). Each section of this manual begins with a statement of a problem, such as "My computer is beeping instead of booting up." The source of the problem follows, along with steps on how to fix it. The thrust of the text is "hands-on," with an emphasis on do-it-yourself solutions. Large, easy-to-read troubleshooting flow charts with bold colors often fill a two-page spread. Illustrations show components found on the motherboard and cable connections. Authors Stone and Poor are contributing editors to Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
