BUT if you want to solve your computer hardware problems without spending alot of time and money ($$)+ aggravation, BUY THIS BOOK and keep it handy because its troubleshooting and resolution methods are applicable to any PC!
Computer books are pretty boring, so why waste any more time than you have to reading one??
With Computer Repair with Diagnostic Flow Charts all you have to do is pick it up and be directed quickly by following arrows and decision points to the solution of your hardware related problem.
If your problem is in the software i.e., the computer turns on but acts funny, GOOD LUCK! - fix that first and then use this book.

Having a little troubleshooting experience would be helpful, but not absolutely necessary. A fair number of pc problems have very simple solutions. The author does not overlook the obvious(is it plugged in? are all the mute buttons unchecked?) on way to making a proper diagnosis.
If you are at all serious about providing your own tech support (or support to friends and family), get this book. Money well spent.
The good thing about it is that it's so damn easy to read. You can follow the flow chart to go straight to the advice you're looking for. I just wish it was longer and offered more solutions than it does.
If you are looking for a book to learn "how a PC works"; this book is not for you; but if you want to repair a PC, it`s a good choice.
