5.0 out of 5 stars Learned more from this book than in computer class!
I'm a computer support student at a local community college. The textbook we use is HUGE and VERY technical. I bought this "For Dummies" book on a friday afternoon, and learned more from it in just a few hours than I had learned in the first 3 weeks of class!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed
If I had seen this book in a bookshop, and not purchased it from Amazon, I think I would have put it back on the shelf. The book is biased towards Windows 7. This did not do a lot for me with Windows Vista.
On page 23 it explains what a Phillips screwdriver looks like. On page 24 it suggests using empty egg cartons to store screws in.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, 13 May 2000
By A Customer
Author spent too much time being humorous. Fine to take edge of tech subject but gets a bit wearing after a time. I would rather know what limits are on upgrading processor etc. without buying new motherboard, and other info along these lines.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Upgrading and Fixing Computers Do-it-Yourself For Dummies (Paperback)
Far too basic and obvious; e.g. "Connecting a monitor to a PC" (pages 43 and 44): Remove the monitor from the box, place the monitor on your desk, and push the plug on the end of its cable into your computer's video port in the back of your computer ... [etc etc -- there are two pages of this.]
