If I am a PC technician and a customer wanted me to do a repair job which I dont specifficly know everything about, should I attempt the job and maybe fail and get a bad reputation (by the customer telling people I wasted his time and didnt repair his problem)
OR should I tell the customer, "I dont deal with that area" with my job.

A good rule of thumb is to always tell the customer the truth. Learn how on a practice machine. I get the sense that you already know which way to go. :thumbsup:

Im always up front with my customers. If Im not real good in an area, I tell them that. If its something that im willing to try, Ill say hey, I've never done this before, I would recomend taking it to someone who has, however, if you dont feel comfortable with that, I can try it, but heres the risks involved. If they want to try it, knowing I might mess it up, then great, if they want to take it to someone else, thats great to.
