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 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 reconmend 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.
However, do not expect to earn a lot of money as a Computer Technician/Repairer/Network Manager, because of a massive oversupply, too many many people trained to do the job, they are not exactly well paid.
I think that they probably make rather less than Qualified Plumbers!
