There's nothing to beat hands-on experience, tutts. Your local Tech will probably have a beginners course, check them out. In the meantime open your case, take a look inside, see how things are connected together, try to identify all the parts, take out your CD-ROM drive and stick it back in again. Oh and ask plenty of questions on this and other forums.

Hi tutts. Have a look at the information on this very useful site.

Also see if you can find the series of articles on building a computer in the October, November and December 2002 issues of PCA magazine.

I think the colleges do courses in English too, Tutt (*.*) or is this a new kind of fonetic forum speek?

It's all on the Web. See click here and click here for example.

Five minutes with Google will tell you how to do just about anything to / with a PC

Take your PC to bits, making a note of what went where and then see if you can put it back together again. Just don't go OTT, start by just removing the cables and then the cards and perhaps the memory. Don't bother with heatsinks or processors though they are best left alone.

If on putting it all back together you don't have a collection of screws at your side you know you've gone wrong ;-)
