If you have a cracked screen, please bring it to Rm. 105 (Tech Office) or to Mr. Stipic in the Library.
We will give you a Chromebook for use in the meantime while we send in your device for repair.
If you have any issues with your laptop, please bring it to Rm. 105 (Tech Office) or to Mr. Stipic in the Library.
We will try to resolve your issue. In the meantime, if it will take longer than a few minutes, a Chromebook will be issued so you have something to use while yours gets worked on.
Please make sure you are charging your laptop nightly with the charger given to you.
*If you have a temporary Chromebook (while your device is in the shop), your laptop charger will work for both devices.
*Do not use any other charger that is not supposed to be for the laptops. A phone charger will not give it a good charge.
Any issues, please come to Rm. 105 (Tech Office) or to Mr. Stipic in the Library for help.
