Troubleshooting Microsoft Windows Problems

David Soll

No longer is the PC a simple DOS device with only one program running at a time. Microsoft Windows has increased the complexity of the operating environment and the complexity of the applications that run in the environment. Applications must now be mindful that other applications may be running simultaneously and that services and resources must be shared. For this reason, service technicians can often have difficulty distinguishing a hardware problem from a software problem. This talk will review some of the basic architectures utilized in Microsoft Windows 3.1x, NT, and 95. There will be an explanation of many of the things that cause Windows problems and how to fix them.

David F. Soll is the Vice President of Omicron Consulting, a Philadelphia based computer consulting firm that specializes in all areas of PC based computing including application development, enterprise networking, internet services, and technology management.
