Peter Norton's Guide to Upgrading and Repairing PCs Second Edition explains how each component of a PC functions and how they function together. With coverage of all of the latest technologies including the entire Pentium II family (Celeron and Zeon), DVD, USB, Firewire, and v.90 modems it hits all of the technologies that go into PCs today. With updated coverage for Windows 98, new motherboard and memory technologies as well as more troubleshooting and detailed step by step installation information, this new edition will be a solid improvement on an already proven quality book. The Second Edition will feature the same great approach that begins with each chapter explaining the underlying technology. With a good understanding of the technology, the reader can then move into the pros and cons of the upgrades being discussed, step by step installation instructions, and troubleshooting procedures.
