Computer Hardware Basics

Come and learn the basics of computer hardware with our expert computer technician.

Our last computer workshop went so well that we’re happy to be running another one!

If your laptop is starting to slow down and you’re having problems with viruses, it’s not booting up at all or you get a blue screen of death then this 90 minute workshop is for you.
Say your screen is broken and shops are asking a fortune to replace it, or you’ve broken the DC-Jack after a drop and the laptop is not charging, come to this workshop and learn how to fix these problems so you’re never over-charged again.

This workshop is suitable for absolute beginners and non-techies, and better yet, it’s only a tenner!

Past participants say, ‘I found the course to be very useful and practical – I believe that it will help me to save a lot of money and prevent a lot of stress and inconvenience. The subject was explained clearly in plain English without any jargon. It was also very interesting. Please run more courses like this! Thank you.’

Thursday 18th June, 6pm-7.30pm, £10 (£8 students/unwaged)
