Default New & eager to teach myself about computers!


I joined this forum as I wish to learn more about computers so I can get the most of mine, repair it etc etc.

I would use youtube but ironically something computer related means my computer (well laptop) is soo slow and the 'shockwave player' thingy crashes quite often lol

I know the basic basics of computers, as to say I have had to use them through school and at uni (so I am not the older generation type - no offence intended), but I don't know how to do, for example, advanced excel, increasing the computer speed and various DIY repairs etc.

So I was wondering if anyone could recommend any books which assume a little bit of computer knowledge (as to say half of it isn't dedicated to turning it on and off!) and one where I can teach myself and learn how I can get the most from my laptop.

Thank you for your time,

Welcome aboard Samuel.

Kidding, I'm 31 here

Can't say anything about laptops. Not my thing. Sorry 'bout that.
