Computer Repair with Diagnostic Flowcharts
Troubleshooting PC Hardware Problems from Boot Failure to Poor Performance

A unique visual approach to troubleshooting PC hardware problems. Morris Rosenthal creates a visual expert system for diagnosing component failure and identifying conflicts. The seventeen diagnostic flowcharts at the core of this book are intended for the intermediate to advanced hobbyist, or the beginning technician. Following a structured approach to troubleshooting hardware reduces the false diagnoses and parts wastage typical of the "swap 'till you drop" school of thought.

Flowcharts include:

Power Supply Failure
Video Failure
Video Performance
Motherboard, CPU, RAM Failure
Motherboard, CPU, RAM Performance
IDE Drive Failure
Hard Drive Boot and Performance
CD or DVD Playback
CD or DVD Recording Problem
Modem Failure
Modem Performance
Sound Failure
Sound and Game Controller Performance
Network Failure
Peripheral Failure
SCSI Failure
Conflict Resolution

Reader Jerry D. Nickerson from Washington State says,"Handy flowcharts with accompaning detailed descriptions. Very logically organized and layed out. It provides you with a structured process for tracking down pc problems. Highly recommended.

"If you are at all serious about providing your own tech support (or support to friends and family), get this book. Money well spent."
