A Simple Set of Tools

As you start to work on PCs, you'll quickly discover that you can perform about 90% of your upgrades and repairs with just a screwdriver. Make sure that you have both a medium-sized flat-head screwdriver and a Phillips screwdriver because some manufacturers favor one type of screw over the other. The exception here is Compaq. Since the first luggable Compaq was released in 1983, Compaq has used what are called Torx screws in all its systems (see Figure 35.1).
