A unique visual approach to troubleshooting PC hardware problems. Morris Rosenthal creates a visual expert system for diagnosing component failure and identifying conflicts.

• IDE Drive Failure
• Hard Drive Boot and Performance
• CD or DVD Playback
• CD or DVD Recording Problem
• Modem Failure

• Sound Failure
• Sound and Game Controller Performance
• Network Failure
• Peripheral Failure
• SCSI Failure
• Conflict Resolution

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