Thefinal objective of this study is to investigate which variable (background or attitudes) has a greater influence on the students' computer skills. All the Form Five students from the three different types ofschools in the Segamat district were chosen as samples. T-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation and regression analyses were used to analyze the data. The study showed that there was a significant difference between the types ofschools the students were in, students' computer ownership and the students' computer club membership with their computer skills. In addition, the findings also revealed that there was a significant correlation between the computer attitude subscales with the students' computer skills.
