PC in the Front Room Down

Postby Keni » Sat Jul 09, 2011 5:05 pm

The mouse in the PC wasn't working earlier - vertical was fine but horizontal movement was non existent. The PC wouldn't respond to Ctrl +Alt+Delete so I did a hard reboot. Same problem so changed mouse, which made no difference. Tried a hard reboot again & this time there was horizontal movement but no vertical. Tried a final reboot, still the same problem so shut it down & labelled it as broken. Every time I needed to do a hard reboot as it was non-responsive. Also checked pins & socket, just in case.

The PC might have got damaged yesterday, either knocked when stuff was moved due to the incoming water or by the water itself. Any thoughts on repairing or fixing it?

Sorry, Margarida, I don't think that is the best course of action.

a working public PC is a very important service that Forest offers.

we should try and fix it or replace it.

yay.

Somebody call the tech helpline, the sense of humour programme has stopped functioning on this thread. :lol:
