This course introduces the PC system, how it works and how the operating system controls it. Also studied are the components which make up the PC system, how to use multimeters and logic probes to make measurements and troubleshoot the system with the aid of diagnostic software. Students will perform fault analysis of simulated PC defects. In addition, students will learn to disassemble, reassemble and modify the PC hardware components.
Prerequisite(s): Knowledge of basic computer and keyboarding skills are strongly recommended.
