Hi I have had a PC for 5yrs now and am well past the novice stage and I am shortly going to buy a new one.My problems is that over the years I haven't learnt much about solving problems ie mouse won't work adding memory etc. and have to keep asking friends are there aany books or courses that don't cost an arm or leg to try. thanks joe
Books have been my best source of learning, whether for Computers, Building industry over the years, and repairing cars etc. You can use the library but I have an expensive bookshelf. For Computers "Bigelow's Troubleshooting, Maintaining & Repairing PC's" with a CD" $59.99
I tend to find that the local public library is a good starting point.Most libraries have a order/transfer scheme, where they can obtain other books from other libraries and sources, should they not have a particular book in stock, that you may want.For the latest books on most computer subject, have a browse at the selection available in most PC World stores. PCW have regular discount sales on books, so wait before you purchase.
