A Non-Technical Guide for Speeding Up Slow Computers, by Michael Miller is a unique look at speeding up PCs that are performing like grandma on a cold winter morning. It’s something we all face with every computer we own, but there are precious few resources for information on putting a little action back in grandma’s step. Sure, there are uber-geeky guides out there that provide tweaks and customizations appealing to the pocket protector nation, but there is not a single book out there that addresses these common problems at the consumer, everyday user level. We think it’s time for a short, to-the-point, affordably priced solution to this common problem. More importantly, we think it’s time for a book that covers all of these topics in a way that appeals to real humans. We cover a variety of topics that are typically spread across several kinds of books: 1) Troubleshooting – Because PCs can be slowed down by a variety of reasons (bloated software, improperly configured software, conflicting software, aging hardware, network resources, etc.) the first order of business is to diagnose the problem. Is it hardware-related? Software? Network? A virus? 2) Software – If you have determined that the problem is software-related, then we show you dozens of easy, non-techy things you can do to speed up Windows, your applications, your Internet apps, and more. 3) Hardware – If you have determined that your PC’s hardware is the bottleneck, we show you easy upgrades you can do yourself (no need to call your nerdy neighbor over to help). Sometimes, the fix is as simple as loading a better driver. Sometimes, it might involve installing more memory or a bigger hard drive. In any case, the solutions we provide are easy to implement and won’t leave you wishing you had a rifle and a tall building from which to use it. 4) Network – Aack! Really? You’re going to discuss networking issues? You bet your boxers, we are. Truth is, nearly everyone uses some sort of network – whether they have a full blown, multi-computer and printer network or they connect to the Internet wirelessly, networks – and all the weeping and gnashing of teeth that goes with them – are just as much a part of everyday life as is your microwave oven. The secret is that networking isn’t nearly as challenging as you might think. We show you how to easily fix network issues that are robbing you of precious time. 5) Buyer’s advice – If it's time to put your beloved PC out to pasture, we offer some tried and true advice for choosing a new PC and keeping it in tip-top condition. Note: This is NOT a tweaker’s guide. This is not a book on overclocking, hacking or squeezing every drop of performance from a PC. This book IS, however, one that will help you keep your PC running like it did the day you brought it home from the hospital, er, store.
