Hardware and Software Technical Support Resources
At some point when using your computer for courses at Richland, something may go wrong with your PC hardware, a software application installed on your PC may not be functioning properly, or you may have technical difficulties with Canvas. Any problems (hardware or software) you encounter when using a Richland computer, Smart Classroom, or audio/visual equipment should be reported to the instructor or lab facilitator who will then report the problem to Technical Services at Ext. 552.
Below is a guide to assist you in contacting the appropriate resources if you run into trouble using your own computer (regardless of operating system):
|Your personal computer||If you are having difficulty with a hardware item on your PC, please contact the appropriate technical support telephone number for the vendor or manufacturer.|
|Software||Software installed on your PC at the factory may be covered by their technical support staff. Third-party software (either off-the-shelf or downloaded) will require that you contact the software developer directly|
|Software provided with your textbook||Begin by contacting your instructor regarding issues with software provided by your textbook. Your instructor may direct you to a textbook publishing company representative if the issue cannot be resolved.|
