I'm looking to calculate the carbon footprint associated with my computer use. How do I go about doing that?

You can also check out Current Cost which provides a wealth of products for tracking energy usage which can then be used in calculating your carbon footprint via AMEE.
Assuming you mean use and not the production/manufacture of the computer...
There are several weak points here, you're unlikely to get a real answer unless you run a generator yourself. And it's a fairly meaningless metric anyway.
