LAPTOP TIPS

  • When should I visit the IT Service Desk?
    • If the laptop is not functioning properly or prohibits the student from performing daily tasks (i.e. virus).
    • If the laptop makes odd or unusual noises.
    • If the laptop is abnormally hot.
    • If experiencing log-in issues.
    • If a spill occurs (IT Service Desk does not repair liquid damage on personal laptops)
  • What should I do if I spilled something on my laptop?
    1. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds and the laptop will shut down.
    2. Unplug the AC adapter and/or other cords.
    3. Let the laptop rest for 10 minutes on a flat solid surface until the liquid drains (No need to flip it upside down).
    4. Close the laptop.
    5. Do not carry the laptop in the backpack. Hold it with two hands in an upright position and visit the IT Service Desk immediately. (This step applies to Laptop TELE students and Ontario Tech faculty and staff only)

    Please note: IT Service Desk does not repair liquid damage on personal laptops.
