General Cleaning tips

Please do not use any harsh cleaning solvents on electronic equipment directly. You may use disinfectant wipes and dusting tools to clean your equipment on a regular basis.
 
A good tip is to always keep any food items and liquids well away from your electronic equipment to avoid messy spills and possible malfunctions of equipment.
 
It is always a good idea to turn OFF your electronic equipment before you clean it to avoid any possible problems that may arise accidentally from possible keystrokes on the keyboard or mouse.
 
 

Basic Problem Resolution

Most of the time problems can be resolved by following a few basic steps.

1st - Notate the problem for the IT Office.

2nd - Simply turning off your equipment, waiting a few seconds and turning it back on resolves the problem.

3rd - If the issue is not fixed, then contact the IT office via our automated help desk system called 'KACE', click the link to leave a detailed description of the issue you are having.  http://txc-vk1000.texascollege.edu/

Software updates

To all faculty and staff; On occasion there are software updates that may need to be installed on your computers. As a security measure, only personnel in the OIT can install updates. If your computer requires an update, please complete a KACE ticket and we can process the update. Most of these are a simple process of setting up an automated process. Some may require a member of OIT to come to your computer to complete the process. When completing your KACE ticket, please mention the update message that you received. We can set an automated process or download the update and come to your computer to install.

 

Voice Mail and setup

To all Faculty and Staff; If you look to the upper right of this page you will see a copy of the handbook for your phone. Please be sure to DELETE your voice mail and keep it cleared. If not it will fill up, you do have a limit as to the number of messages in your VM. Please delete VM when finished.
