Dexter Riley is a college student who is a bright guy. An accident occurs when Dexter tries to fix a computer that A.J. Arno has donated to the school he attends to. Due to the electric shock from the computer, Dexter’s brain was turned into a computer. He’s really smart now, smarter than he used to be. He can even remember everything he reads. During the shock, he also received information that was stored in the computer. One thing that Dexter finds out from the accident is that A.J. Arno is doing some illegal business.
