From Barnes & NobleNow in its 18th Edition, Scott Mueller's Upgrading and Repairing PCs remains the definitive PC hardware reference and how-to guide. If you work with new or recent PC technologies, its hundreds of pages of updates make it an indispensable upgrade.
Just for instance, Mueller's added extensive coverage of new multicore processors; new motherboard and video chipsets, including NVIDIA's and ATI's latest; and new power supplies.
As always, there's detailed troubleshooting, repair, and installation information for motherboards, storage, video, audio, I/O, and memory, with plenty of diagrams (many revised and improved).
You'll learn things nobody else tells you (how to back up your BIOS). You'll be warned away from multiple disasters (never plug in a drive's standard and SATA power connectors at once). You'll find relevant answers constantly. (And that's just the book. The DVD offers loads more content, including two hours of new video on networking.) Bill Camarda, from the December 2007 Read Only
