Chapter 4. Microsoft Windows and Hardware

Chapter 4. Microsoft Windows and Hardware

Is your PC doing everything you want it to do? If it seems to be stuck in a rut, you can expand its horizons by adding some new hardware. Microsoft Windows XP allows you to turn your ho-hum PC into a video editing studio, a digital photo lab, or a desktop printing and publishing shop, just by plugging in a new device. You don’t need any special incantations or an advanced engineering degree to get your new hardware to work with Windows, either. Virtually all the new devices you can add to your computer these days use a Windows feature called Plug and Play, which makes it possible for anyone to install a new device and have it working in a matter of minutes. And on those rare occasions when something goes wrong, troubleshooting tools are only a few clicks away.
