These days it is a lot easier to learn about the inner workings
of computers. As computers become more universal, the chances
are that you have a friend or a co-worker who could help you
with some basic troubleshooting. There are also a lot of resources
available for free on the internet. These web sites, quite
often run by large computer magazine, software or hardware
manufacturers, are packed full of useful, easy to use advice.
They will offer advice on improving your system speed and
your internet connection speed. They also contain tips and
tricks for Windows 95/98/ME/2000. Some of them even have online
testing for your system.
For more in-depth evaluation of your system, there is also
usually a subscription service. For prices ranging from $10
- $40 a year, you can receive updates to drivers that you
have, receive updates to your operating system, and receive
some of the best shareware available.
