Diagnosing computer problems can be a very time consuming process especially for computer users who have no or only basic computer repair process. These users only have a few options left if their computer system fails. One being to ask a proficient friend or colleague. The other option is to pay for professional computer repair which can be costly and time consuming depending where the computer system was bought and where it should be repaired.
Computer repair flowcharts can aid even inexperienced users to analyse the computer hardware problem with the possibility to repair it directly without having to spend money on professional computer repair. The computer repair flowcharts that are available on the website in pdf and image format are part of a computer repair book that contains additional diagnostic flowcharts that are not available on the website.
The following computer repair flowcharts are available for free on the website:
Each computer repair flowchart guides the user through a series of Yes or No questions. The hard drive repair flowchart for example beings by asking if the drive is detected during the boot process and goes from there to cover all eventualities that can lead to a hard drive problem. Computer repair experience or at least some knowledge of computer hardware helps while working with the computer repair flowchart as it sometimes refers to specific computer hardware or features provided by the hardware.
The computer repair charts refer to each other. The Motherboard, CPU and RAM troubleshooting section for instance links to the Power Supply Failure and Video Card Diagnostics flowcharts which means that the user has to open these computer repair charts to continue with the repair.
