I'm looking for some assistance. The room I have my Computers in has 4 wall boxes each with the standard two outlests in it.

There are two wall boxes for a total of 4 outlets that are in areas that are not easy to access. One is behind the bed and the other is right next to a walk way. I'd like to move these outlets to other locations. I am a novice when it comes to Electrical work, but I have replaced outlets and switches before.

You can run the wire and boxes with some help. You might look for a good book on it. The hard part is cutting into the wall, installing new work boxes, drilling holes, running wire, and then fixing the wall again. Don't drill into any existing wire. The boxes would go next to a stud so they can be fastened.

I kind of thought the NEC requires all bedroom receptacles to be behind a bed or dresser cause that is where they always are. LOL
