Before You Call Tech Support
Reboot your computer
Rebooting your computer forces your computer to reload the operating system, restores stability and in many cases, will solve your problem. Test to see if your problem has been remedied by reloading the application.
Search the Web
The Web contains many helpful documents that can help you solve many common computer and application problems. Searching the Web can eve be helpful when you are unable to solve the problem on your own. Being able to tell the tech what you have tried helps to narrow the possibilities of what might be wrong.
Check the Help Desk FAQ
Believe it or not, someone else may have had the same problem you are experiencing! Answers to common problems can be found on the ASU TSS Answers Board
Document the Problem
If rebooting your system, searching the Web, and reading over the Help Desk FAQ has not helped to rectify the problem, the next step is to carefully document the problem. What series of actions causes the problem? Is the problem reproducible? Does the system respond with an error message? Having these facts at hand will greatly increase the probability that your problem will be solved quickly and efficiently. Be sure to write down any error messages - they really do help us determine what is wrong!
