    Book details

A reference based title written in an approachable first person point of view. This book teaches a reader how to upgrade his PC and peripherals to increase productivity on his PC without intimidating or offending him. Straight-forward conversational tone on upgrading hardware and software-the decision to upgrade or not. This title provides basic information in purchasing and installing the newest technology for multimedia, fast Internet access and more. Finally the reader learns how various software applications and operating systems upgrades can help him use or not use his PC more efficiently.

This book gives its readers the foundation on what a PC is and how to upgrade it in everyday language without being intimidating or insulting. Upgrading & Repairing Your PC is a task-oriented explanation of PC hardware and software upgrading.

Rather that try to compete with the up-to-the-minute product information of Web sites or the encyclopaedic brilliance of Scott Mueller's Upgrading and Repairing PCs, the authors of TechTV's Upgrading Your PC fill a separate niche. They explain to their readers, in an eminently readable and clear fashion, how to think about upgrading their Intel-compatible personal computers, then set about doing it. For starters, they acknowledge that upgrading isn't always the best thing to do with an elderly machine (the most cost-effective thing is often, they note, retirement and replacement). Continuing on the assumption that you want to improve some aspect of your machine, they provide the information you need to choose and install an after-market part. In their coverage of graphics cards, for example, the authors provide lots of technology-specific information (about the different kinds of AGP ports, among other things) while leaving recommendations of specific products to other publications. It's a winning strategy that they apply to CPUs, motherboard chipsets, and other upgradeable system pieces.
