  • Includes Assessment
  • Earns a Badge
As a computer technician, one of your main responsibilities is often to troubleshoot and diagnose hardware and display-related issues. In this course, you'll explore common hard drive types, replacement techniques, and migration processes. Investigate how to replace common hardware device components such as batteries and random-access memory (RAM). Examine physical privacy and security components such as biometrics and near-field scanner features. Learn how to differentiate between liquid crystal display (LCD) types, including in-plane switching (IPS), twisted nematic (TN), and vertical alignment (VA). Install and configure mobile display components, including Wi-Fi antenna connectors, webcams, microphones, and laptop screen inverters. Lastly, explore the common features of both digitizers and touchscreens. Once you have completed this course, you will be able to confidently troubleshoot hardware and display-related issues and select the appropriate solutions. This course will prepare learners for the CompTIA A+ Core 1 (220-1101) certification exam.
