Also about what.... I'm assuming about hardware since your posting in the hardware forum. The answer to your question: read, read, read, and read.

And just to add to whiteknight, you should definatly READ!

Also experiment. If you want to know if something will work, try it and see.

Trial and error, is the best way and the most fun. I have messed up my computer three times. But atleast I learnt from my experience and in the end it did help my computer.

go buy a crappy computer and blow it up... 8 or 9 times, after a while youll learn whats going on, and how to fix it

or

find some parents you can move in with that know jack about computers, get them to buy a new PC, burn 1 CD or check their email for them, then they will come to you with computer questions for the rest of your life, and youll spend tons of time figuring out whats wrong and developing your troubleshooting skills, in review:

1) move in with dumb people
2) buy PC u know will break
3) burn CD or check email so they think you know stuff
4) learn how to fix every computer problem, because they will come at you with all of them

happy learning

*PS* its good to see people wanting to learn about PCs, i was exactly where you are about 5 years ago, and look at me now, im 19, i make $12 an hour, (after only 1 year of college and no certifications) and i sit on my butt doing something i enjoy! woo hoo!
