Learn how your PC works--and what to do when it doesn't

Understand the function of each component of your PC and learn how they all work together. PC Hardware: A Beginner's Guide first introduces you to the underlying principles of the PC, such as digital logic and electronics, then covers internal components, including GHz processors, high-speed data buses, and DVD drives. Next, you'll get details on external components--monitors, printers, keyboards, mice, modems, and more. The final section explains how to troubleshoot your PC, detect viruses, make repairs, and optimize your system.
