Hardware, Embedded Systems Last month, I explained why I use generic desktops and laptops running open source software. They're reliable and inexpensive. But this presumes you can fix them. I believe that even those with no hardware training (like me), can identify and fix most hardware problems. To prove it, here's a quick guide. Feel free to add whatever I've missed.

It was very useful for big screen TV and computer LCD until they broke the price cartel, now it's so cheap it doesn't worth my time anymore. Given it only work half of the time, just buy a new one. When capacitors blow up, they often fry a few IC with them.
