In my late years I have been blessed to discover something that would
ahve truly benefitted me in younger years when I had good vision.

Years ago in thos ancient years when one needed a modem to go online,
I actually replace a broken modem, built-in with a little help from my user manual.

Very recently I have descovered for myself, since no one told me about it,
that I can find all kinds of great information on YouTube.

I have videos on maintaining my Tower, Windows 10, repair of various
parts, diagnosis, and much more. It is all so very easy, but in order for
me to work at this is a silly idea , but it is a wonderful idea for men and
women who can see well enough.

Anyone from 29, evenunder, to my age and over in the health necessary for
learning such things has all the lessons he or she needs online in YouTube.

Any quesstion you have about software, hardware, operating systems, installations,
diagnoses, whatever, it is all here.

I recommend watching afew videos on installing ssd's (solid state disks), building your own PC, or questions on
your os, just to get an idea of how your feel about your own aptitude.

The fact that you are here tells me you have the capability to go online to YouTube.

So this can be a hobby at first, and if you progress well, you just ,may
find yourself with a viable living.

Don't let the former .com'ers make you feel as though you cannot do anything.
God tells me, YOU CAN.. god bless you, and I hope thousands take this advice and are
totally successful.

Post data........

I do not think thousands will be able to take advantage of thie advice in the op unless all who actually do pursue this
avenue of learning a trade share it with others, so please, if you do take advantage of this share it with everyne...

Here is a link on making your own computer from new components.

Do not be scared away by all of the words that are not familiar......they become familiar after a coupld of videos.

If you find the content is grabbing your interest it may serve you well to go on to ho-wo's on repairs.

Maybe I am putting too much hope in others sharing my own interests, but I do hope so, and I hope
jmany will learn about everything conserning computers........

Here is a video on a small card with a printed circuit called the m.2 ssd. It is slightly larger than a cretdit card. It holds lots of storage space as a drive, and it is so easy to install.

Watching videos on PC work you will very soon be able to identify your motherboard if you do not already recognize it.

You take this M.2 ssd and plug it into your motherboard.......the videos tell you where. Sometimes youu will need to configure your newly installed m.2, but that too is on a videos somewhere, just ask in the search of YouTube.

It seems I am the only one interested in this so far, and guess what?! I don't care, I want to reach as many folks as possible with this wonderful, and possibly very helpful news.

The "teacher" on this video is called Linus..he is very good though sometimes his mouth gets out of hand.

YouTube and all the things available on it is nothing new to most people. Which is why no one told you. It's assumed everyone already knows.
And there is a lot more than what YouTube videos can teach you to learn about computer repair. You can learn some things and find help, but to become good enough to make money most people go to school and get certified or degrees.
The geeks know this stuff, the non-geeks don't care haha.

YouTube has an endless supply of entertainment and learning possibilities. And many people actually make money or earn a living by making YouTube videos.

In the Air Force I was a SSB Fast-Talk Radio operator. The training for this included, amon other areas, some electroncs, very basic.

From what I have gleaned from these videos, as far as compnents are concrned, installation is very easy, maintenance and diagnosis too.

Now being able to construct any component is a horse of a different color.

I have known about YouTube since it began, but, I thought it was mainly entertainment and gossip. Since I am not acquainted closely with any who are into computer maintenance etc....I had not heard of any of this. I came across it quite by acciden.

I truly love it, and I will continue attmpting to tantalize others into diving in.

I amnot trying to close any tech schools, but the internal affairs of a computer turn out to be relatively simple. Now keeping the specs in order will take some study for just about anyone, even a tech graduate.......manuals and tech refs. You know.

Thanks, and god bless you.
