Where can I go to learn about computers online? - Page 3  

post #21 of 27
I learned by reading the [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Guide-Managing-Maintaining-Your-PC/dp/1435497783/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_1"]A+ Guide to Managing & Maintaining Your PC[/ame] by Jean Andrews. Literally has just about everything you would want to know about computers and can even prepare you for the A+ Exam should you decide to go that route. I have the 2006 edition and still find myself referring back to it from time to time. Ask for it for chrismas or your birthday or save up for it, nevertheless it would be a great investment.

Good Question.

If you are really that interessted - learn the basics - what does the different parts do, Motherboard, PSU, CPU, RAM etc. Some are clearly more straight forward than other.

After that - Consider going into deep with specific parts. For examble the structur of a CPU - how is it build.

There are tons of info about all parts of computers around the web. And I've seen tons of threads here on OCN about detailed information on different parts.

Else you could ask more specificly about stuff - and before you know it - you might know alot more than you expected. smile.gif

Good luck!

When we went to Borders , grab a coffee, and read some of these.
If you like it you can purchase.
Some Libraries carry them too:)
They are quite detailed.

Pick one thing you would like to dig deeper into as far as computers are concerned. As you learn that you will start asking yourself about other things that have to do with the topic that you are learning. It will happen again and again.

I think trying to learn something in general all at once will blow up your brain. So take it in piece by piece and ask yourself questions a lot. ( Not to be confused with talking to yourself)
