Understanding PC Hardware

Chapter

Abstract

The Windows operating system as installed on your PC is extremely complex, literally consisting of tens or even hundreds of thousands of configuration files, shared APIs, drivers, programs, and more besides. The hardware in our PCs isn’t any less confusing, and even if you’re using a tablet or ultrabook that’s not serviceable by the user, because the case is sealed and all components are soldered onto the motherboard, there are still hardware factors you need to know about when troubleshooting problems.
