One of the services offered by the Technology Help Desk is Hardware Repair for personal computers. This is offered free to students* and is often a lifeline for someone whose computer has suffered a catastrophic failure.
During the Fall 2012 semester, we accepted and repaired over 132 computers. In comparison, we repaired 106 in Fall 2011.
Hardware Repair includes everything from removing viruses, recovering lost data, reinstalling operating systems, installing hard drives or memory, or replacing entire screens on laptops.
