Computer Emergencies: (Computer Crash or Computer Will Not Boot)
1)If your computer is not booting at all, there are few
possible reasons. Computers need 3 things in order to operate correctly.
Power, Cooling, and a Operating System. Check all three of these items
and then contact Michael Elmore if problem still persists.
2) Computer Crash: If it is a Monday, Tuesday morning, or Wednesday, then email or call Michael right now.
3) If it is another day of the week, then power down your computer,
unplug it from the internet (Ethernet cable on back of computer). Power
it on and plug in a USB Harddrive or Thumbdrive that is big enough to
hold the files you wish to backup incase of a total harddrive failure.
After the backup is complete, power down the computer; plug the Ethernet
cable back in to your computer and then call campus IT. Explain the
situation and see if they have any other requirements for you. Then fill
out this form so Michael has record of it.
