Computers - Inside & Out

I greatly enjoy working with computers. I have fixed many computers in my day, both working on my own and while working at Computers and Beyond. In this class, students were able to get inside a computer, learn about the parts, and put a computer together for themselves.

Whether you have taken this class or not, feel free to use the resources and either refresh your memory or learn about something brand new!
