Are you having computer problems? Suspect that your computer has a virus? Getting any confusing errors? Is your computer running slowly in general? Students, faculty, and staff have we got news for you! Bring your computer to one of our walk-up locations and we'll repair it for you!
Before you bring in your computer, here are some steps you can try on your own to fix some common problems:
- If you're looking to speed up your computer's performance, running "Defragment and Optimize Disks" and "Disk Cleanup" can prove effective. On Windows, these tools can be found under Accessories -> System Tools in the Start Menu.
- Many third-party tools, such as disk cleaners, registry cleaners, and malware removal tools can be found for free on the internet. CCleaner and MalwareBytes are two free programs that can fix a lot of common problems.
If none of the above steps fix the problem, bring your computer one of our walk-up locations and we'll be happy to make a best effort to resolve the issue. No appointment is necessary, feel free to stop by any of our locations during our walk-up support hours.
The Wreck Techs do not specialize in resolving hardware issues. We are happy to provide a diagnostic of your computer and suggested next steps if you suspect that the issues you are experiencing are hardware-related. If we determine that there is a hardware fault, you will need to contact your computer's manufacturer for further assistance as we cannot perform the repairs ourselves.
