For greater than 25 years, Upgrading and Repairing PCs has been the world’s no 1 advisor to notebook undefined: the one resource for trustworthy info on how computers paintings, troubleshooting and solving difficulties, including undefined, optimizing functionality, and construction new desktops. This twenty second version bargains beefed-up insurance of the most recent techniques and upkeep strategies, plus greater than hours of recent video.


Scott Mueller provides functional solutions approximately workstation processors, mother-boards, buses, BIOSes, reminiscence, SSD and HDD garage, video, audio, networks, net connectivity, strength, and lots more and plenty extra. You’ll locate the industry’s top assurance of diagnostics, trying out, and repair—plus state-of-the-art discussions of enhancing workstation functionality through overclocking and different techniques.


Mueller has taught millions of pros in individual and hundreds of thousands extra via his books and videos—nobody is familiar with extra approximately preserving desktops working perfectly. even if you’re a qualified technician, a small company proprietor attempting to get a better price, or a house computer fanatic, this is often the one laptop publication you need!


NEW during this EDITION

  • The most up-to-date processors, together with Intel’s most up-to-date middle i Haswell processors and AMD’s Kaveri center processors.
  • Everything you must find out about the newest GPU expertise from NVIDIA and AMD, together with advancements in OpenGL, DirectX, and Mantle.
  • New firmware concepts just like the InSyde BIOS, again to BIOS buttons, and the entire up to date settings to be had for the most recent processors and chipsets.
  • The newest in up-to-date domestic networking criteria, from blazing quick 802.11ac wireless to HomeGrid and G.hn powerline networking.
  • Ever higher garage, because of new applied sciences like helium-filled demanding disks, shingled magnetic recording, and Cfast and XQD for flash reminiscence.
  • Emerging interfaces akin to mSATA, USB 3.1, and M.2
  • Updated insurance of creating desktops from scratch—from picking and assembling via BIOS setup and troubleshooting




Get three hours of up-to-the minute, studio-quality how-to videos—all playable in your DVD participant or machine! during this version, Scott Mueller offers an entire seminar on computer troubleshooting, instructing you the way to spot and get to the bottom of an array of universal and not-so-common workstation problems.

From specified reasons on the entire instruments that are supposed to be a simple a part of any workstation toolkit, to all of the serious ideas you might want to keep on with to soundly function in your PC’s inner elements, in those movies Scott Mueller guarantees you're built with every thing you must recognize to effectively get to the bottom of your PC’s problems.

From there, Scott takes you thru a whole disassembly of an All-in-One (AiO) process, exhibiting simply what you are able to do to maintain those really good structures working easily. ultimately, there's a targeted examine today’s ultra-fast stable country disk drives (SSD) and the advantages they convey to trendy platforms.

This DVD additionally comprises the entire nineteenth and twentieth variants of this ebook in printable shape, plus vast technical reference fabric, a finished word list, and more!


“…continually revised and up to date to mirror the ever-changing workstation panorama. A source from my computing device fix days, Scott Mueller’s tome is without doubt one of the books that has stayed on my bookshelf
throughout the years.”

Middle i7 and i5 Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors with out the okay suffix enable restricted overclocking (“limited unlocking”) as much as 4 pace levels (bins) above the conventional faster frequency (maximum clock speed). for instance, a processor with a rapid frequency of three. 7GHz will be overclocked to four. 1GHz with one center working, four. 0GHz with cores working, etc. back, you wish an overclock-friendly chipset to make this take place. middle i3 Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge chips don’t contain rapid develop and therefore don’t help overclocking. accordingly, for you to overclock Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge processors, your collection of processor and chipset is extra vital than ever ahead of. * * * CPU Voltage Settings one other trick overclockers use is fidgeting with the voltage settings for the CPU. All smooth CPU sockets and slots have automated voltage detection. With this detection, the process determines and units the right kind voltage by way of analyzing convinced pins at the processor. a few motherboards don't let guide alterations to those settings. different motherboards let you tweak the voltage settings up or down by means of fractions of a volt. a few experimenters have chanced on that by means of both expanding or reducing voltage a little from the normal, a better velocity of overclock could be completed with the approach ultimate good. a few motherboards let adjusting the voltage settings for the FSB, chipset, and reminiscence parts, making an allowance for much more keep an eye on in overclocking occasions. My suggestion is to be cautious whilst fidgeting with voltages since you can harm the processor or different parts during this demeanour. Even with out altering voltage, overclocking with an adjustable bus velocity motherboard is straightforward and reasonably profitable. I do suggest you are making yes you're utilizing a solid board, sturdy reminiscence, and particularly an excellent method chassis with extra cooling fanatics and a heavy-duty energy offer. See bankruptcy 18, “Power Supplies,” for additional information on upgrading energy provides and chassis. particularly if you are overclocking, it truly is crucial that the method parts and the CPU stay effectively cooled. Going a little overboard at the processor heatsink and including additional cooling fanatics to the case by no means hurts and in lots of instances is helping very much whilst hotrodding a method during this demeanour. Processor Cooling warmth could be a challenge in any high-performance approach. The higher-speed processors eat extra strength and accordingly generate extra warmth. The processor is generally the only such a lot power-hungry chip in a process, and in so much occasions, the fan within your laptop case is incapable of dealing with the burden with out a few aid. Heatsinks At one time, a heatsink (a particular attachment for a chip that attracts warmth clear of the chip) used to be wanted merely in structures during which processor warmth was once an issue. besides the fact that, beginning with the speedier Pentium processors within the early Nineteen Nineties, heatsinks were a need for each processor considering that. A heatsink works just like the radiator on your vehicle, pulling warmth clear of the engine.
