Computer Purchasing and Setup
Selected your dream machine? College IT can place the order for your computer, order Applecare for your Macintosh (which we do recommend getting) and upon receiving it in our office will perform initial setup duties so your computer will be ready to be used as soon as you pick it up! System updates, antivirus, Microsoft Office, Firefox, Chrome, and more are installed right in our office. We can also assist in migrating your files from your old computer.
Support and Troubleshooting
Is your machine acting a bit strange? Perhaps you're getting error messages you don't understand, or you're worried about having contracted a virus or spyware? Maybe you're having trouble getting your iPhone to connect to the Internet or your email? Bring your machine down to College IT and we will diagnose and remove problems afflicting your machine. We also help with networking issues in your office, and moving machines from room to room.
