ExpertRating Online Computer Training Course (PC Maintenance) Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

Learning how to troubleshoot PCs can save you money and reduce your stress when something goes wrong. Before you can troubleshoot, though, you need a basic understanding of the PC. This first lesson will introduce you to the most common devices that you'll find on a PC. By the time you finish this lesson, you'll be able to recognize the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and many of the ports you might use to connect devices to the computer. This lesson will finish out with a discussion about basic care and maintenance of printers, and how to keep power to the PC safe for the delicate circuits inside your system.

Friday - Lesson 02

Now that you're familiar with the basics, let's take a peek behind the curtain. This lesson will take you on a tour inside a PC and show you the parts that make the system tick. This lesson will introduce you to important hardware, such as the CPU, RAM, and storage devices, and will explain how they all play together. Along the way, you'll learn the terminology you'll need to "talk the talk" of a PC tech, and maybe even impress your friends.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

A PC isn't of much use without an operating system to give it function. This lesson will discuss the various popular versions of Windows from yesterday and current, including Windows 9x, 2000, XP, and Vista. You'll also follow the process a PC goes through after you press the power button, learning the steps that go on behind the scenes, and becoming familiar with the important files Windows needs to start.

Friday - Lesson 04

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, or so the common wisdom goes. In this lesson, you'll learn the secret to PC troubleshooting: preparedness. This lesson will teach you how to use the software tools that will help you recover a system when there's a problem, and other tools that may help prevent some problems from occurring in the first place. Then this lesson will walk through the process of backing up important data, such as personal documents and e-mail messages, and you'll learn how to use these backups so you'll be prepared when the inevitable happens.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

Your PC may come with a standard set of devices, but you're not limited to just those. PCs enable you to add more devices for increased function and flexibility. This lesson will explore the technologies that make this expansion possible. You'll learn how devices use configurations called "system resources" to communicate with the computer. Since device installations don't always go as smoothly as anticipated, this lesson will also show you how to troubleshoot installation problems and conflicts that can prevent a device from working.

Friday - Lesson 06

Computers need power to function, so you need to understand power supplies and what you can do to ensure your system always has the clean and steady power required to do its job. In this lesson, you'll look at the PC's need for power and ventilation. You'll learn how to identify and replace a bad power supply, as well as how to keep your computer cool and well ventilated, and what can go wrong if you don't. You'll round out this lesson by learning how to be environmentally responsible when storing and disposing of computer equipment.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

What good is your computer if it can't remember anything? This lesson will take a look at system memory, or RAM. First, it will identify the various types of RAM and the technologies behind them. From there, you'll learn how to install RAM in a system and recognize common errors you may run into along the way. Then this lesson will take you behind the scenes where you'll have a chance to see how a PC knows what it has "under the hood" and how it uses BIOS to help the CPU communicate with all the devices in the computer. This lesson will wrap up with a tour of the System Setup Utility.

Friday - Lesson 08

One of the most common PC problems occurs during the startup and shut down processes. To understand what's going on, you need to know what should happen during a normal startup and shut down, so this will go through them step-by-step. Then this lesson will discuss some of the issues that may occur during those processes, and this lesson will show how you have to resolve them so you never have to stare at a "Starting Windows" message for multiple minutes again!

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

This lesson will take a look at the system's mass data storage—the hard drive or drives. You'll learn what a hard drive does, and how using swap files and disk caching can help things run smoothly. Along the way, this lesson will teach you the benefits of regular maintenance with utilities such as Disk Defragmenter and Error Checking. You'll also see how to protect data from catastrophic failures—always a bonus.

Friday - Lesson 10

The Windows operating system is just like a car—with a bit of tweaking and fine tuning, you can keep it running fast and efficiently. In this lesson, you'll learn how to optimize Windows and keep it streamlined. This lesson will also take a look at the various options that Windows offers that enable you to customize it to your own tastes and needs.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Anyone who's used Windows for any length of time has experienced the dreaded Blue Screen of Death—where statements like "General Protection Fault" and "Fatal Exception" sit on your screen surrounded by information that might as well be written in Greek. This lesson will give you the scoop on the different types of errors you might see and what they mean. Then this lesson will show you some methods that can help you isolate and identify the errors so you can eliminate them and get back up and running again.

Friday - Lesson 12

The Internet is everywhere. You see it at work and in homes—and you can even access it at many coffee shops and parks. This lesson will delve into the world of the Internet and explore some common Internet issues. You'll learn what you need to access the Internet, and look at how to troubleshoot connectivity problems, optimize your browser settings, and handle pop-ups and spyware.
