Most people, to some degree, are technophobes. it's an extension of the fear of the unknown. That may be a lofty way of putting it, but how well do you know your computer? Would you feel comfortable opening up its guts if it needed a new part? If you said yes, you are braver than most. For everyone else, doing minor repairs at home is probably out of the question, considering most of us don't want to ruin something that cost hundreds -- or thousands -- of dollars. Panasonic Toughbook repairs, you would think, would be especially challenging, given that they aren't built like other laptops. as it turns out, however, most repairs can be done at home with just a screwdriver. Don't worry about memorizing the name of every little part. You don't need an encyclopedic knowledge of your computer's internal components to replace a wireless card, and you don't need a engineering degree to upgrade the memory in your CF-19.
