    I asked this question out loud into my office, of the 3 guys i asked, all 3 agreed that the answer I picked was correct. The questions is worded completely wrong in my opinion, just made me laugh! I'm meant to be learning from this book & CD not correcting it :)

    Hehe.

    The answer is correct imo and the question isn't that badly worded either :p

    A good analogy would be...

    Say your car engine stops firing. Do you go out and buy a new engine? No. You take it to a mechanic who can further assess the problem and then if needs require, buy a new engine.

    EDIT - As a side note, I'd be careful about lifting such content directly off the MS Readiness Review suite. Forewarned is forearmed.

    I'm with Qs on this one, always suspect software before hardware unless you can see the smoke.

    I'd say poorly worded. since it doesn't say that you can see the display at POST

    I agree with the above... first things first safe mode. I will agree, the question isn't worded the best. And yes, careful with what you post.

    Cheers!

    The question said, if you have NO display... without any display how on earth can you select safe mode!?

    It's a badly worded question..

    There are too many questions like this on the exam cram book... using the mike myers total tester I can pass the tester exams with flying colours, when it comes to the exam cram questions its a different story.

    Maybe its me.. i dont know.

    Another example:

    A couple of hours after you install a new processor upgrade in a desktop system, it is overheating.

    Whats is the cause of this?

    a You forgot to apply thermal compound to the heat sink
    b You forgot to attach the fan's power connector
    c You installed an incompatible processor
    d You installed the wrong driver for the processor

    I'm no expert don't get me wrong, but the guys in my office are and they agreed with me when i say.. answers a & b are too close to choose part? It also depends on what kind of machine / processor etc? I picked B, which was wrong.. A was correct.. Just abit too close to call in my opinion!?

    Upon first read, I did assume B, but after re-reading, If it was B, the overheating would take place after 5 or so minutes.. The fact it says after a few hours suggests the paste.

    ALWAYS RE-READ QUESTIONS ! :biggrin

    Yeah, but some modern processors would run fine for a couple of hours even without the fan going, so even though your reasoning is good, I'm still going to go with poor question on that one. :)
