Bring A Computer Ask A Question

Bring A Computer Ask A Question (BACAAQ) is a hands-on workshop that  helps you repair, upgrade, or use your own computer. You are welcome to bring new components, accessories, or software that you want to install, whether you bought them in our Thrift Store or elsewhere.

Bring your computer. For most desktop computers, you can bring almost nothing but the central unit, because you'll be sitting at a station that already has a monitor, keyboard, mouse, power cords, and an Internet connection (both wired and wireless). If you have any specialized components that you'll need, such as an external power supply for your laptop, you should bring those. Also, we recommend that you back up your data before you come.

This event is often noisy and very busy. It's a room full of people working on computers. We won't be "teaching" in the usual sense, so please come prepared to ask a question, solve a problem, or learn how to do something specific.

BACAAQ sessions are currently held the third Saturday of every month. Our next meeting is July 18th from 1:00-4:00 PM. There is no charge for the service; some parts are available for purchase if you need any. Space is limited, so call our Computer Thrift Store, 215-564-6686, to tell us you're coming. Reservations are accepted up to 24 hours before the start of the event.

Or you can fill out our online form to register for the class. BACForm

RULES: The BACAAQ program has a set of rules that everybody should be aware of.
CAUTION: This session should not be used to replace professional repair of your computer. While we can usually fix many computer problems during the workshop, and we do take precautions against creating problems, we cannot guarantee anything. If you have valuable information on your computer, or its function is critical to your studies or your work.
