It does not mean i do not know anything. As far as all voltages ie dc ie 5v, 3v, 2.5v, cpu voltages i know. I can reball north & south bridge. My main problem is
1-- step by step signal checking
2--- how to check whether my bios functioning 100% ok
3- also i/o chip
i have one chinese debug card which in no way helps me

Equipment. (for a starter)
(1) digital voltmeter - get one that measures Ohms, volts (AC/DC), Capacitance.
(2) O'scope, for signal tracing
(3) For testing IC's - an IC tester is expensive. It's cheaper to replace an IC that troubleshooting has Identified.
(4) Temperature controlled soldering station
(5) Antistatic work station - cheaper to construct than buying an antistatic mat.

For training.
(1) The library would be a good place to start.
(2) Google books on:
(a) AC/DC fundamentals
(b) Power supplies
(c) Waveshaping circuits, Oscillators, Amplifiers (both audio and RF)
(d) Troubleshooting techniques
(his is just a starter list.
