    know about

    He does not know about repairing the computer.

    What does this sentence mean:

    1-He does not know how to repair the computer.
    2-He does not know that that the computer was repaired.
    3-He does not know that he repaired the computer (he has amnesia)

    #1 is highly unlikely.

    In context, #3 is possible.

    It could just about mean #2, and also, "He doesnot know whether the computer is going to be/needs to be repaired".
