PC Help Group

PC Repair & Maintenance The PC Repair & Maintenance Group is available WEDNESDAYS and FRIDAYS from 7:30 to 11:00 a.m.  When you arrive at Computers West, sign in for assistance.  No sign-ups after 8:30 a.m.
The PC Repair & Maintenance Group exists to help the PC members (and only members) with their computer problems. The Group is broadly divided into software and hardware assistance.
Hardware Help Hardware help is available to troubleshoot problems which are hardware related. Examples of such problems are:
  • Computer won’t start and no fans or lights come on when the power is on
  • Error messages appear indicating that there is a hardware problem, e.g., no hard drive is installed
  • CD drives don’t work or won’t open when the button is pushed
While the Hardware Help will attempt to diagnose hardware problems and fix them, the Group does not generally stock or provide hardware for repairs with the exception of replacement Solid State hard drives.  The Group will attempt to install replacement hardware purchased and supplied by the members. In some cases the physical restraints of the computer may make such installation impossible short of factory or authorized repairs. Along that line, it is strongly suggested that members wishing to upgrade their computers consult with the Help Group first to ensure that the right items are purchased.
