Quick Guide to Simple Fixes
Here are a few things you can try before calling your BTC.
1. If the computer is running, shut it down from the start menu. If it is frozen try control –alt- delete (push these simultaneously) then click end task.
2. Unplug all power plugs one at a time (so you will know where to plug them in again) and then plug them in again. Unplug from the wall and from the computer.
3. If you have no connection for Internet or email, (try them both) unclick the Internet
connection from the back of the computer and reconnect it. (It looks like a phone cord)
4. Restart your computer.
5. If there is no sound, check the sound plugs in the back. Look at a working computer and match the cords to that.
6. If there is still no sound, check the volume button on the front of the monitor (dell computers have the volume on the side)
7. If there is still no sound, check the headphones volume, or simply unplug the head
phones to see if sound returns.
8. If the screen is dark, check the blue cable that plugs into the computer.
9. Don’t spend more than 15 minutes trying to fix a problem. If you can’t figure it out,
contact your BTC.
10. Send in a BTC Request Form to your BTC describing the problem. Also include what you were doing at the time it encountered the problem as best you can.
Attach a note to the computer with the problem so that the BTC can find it quickly.
