Hardware - Report an Issue

Description

Clients may contact the OIT Technology support Center via telephone at 812-237-2910 for assistance, or they may visit the Walk-In Help Desk at the Technology Support Center in Stalker Hall 009 (lower level).

TSC technicians will gather Customer information and Machine information, as well as a description of the problem(s) with the computer, and create a Computer Hardware Repair Incident ticket. If the computer is NOT a personally-owned or non-ISU model, the computer is then handed off to the Hardware team for visual inspection, troubleshooting, and repair following manufacturer’s procedures.

If the computer has suffered Accidental Damage, AND is in warranty, TSC will ship the computer to the manufacturer’s designated depot repair facility for evaluation and/or repair.

For non-ISU approved machines (student-owned, non-ISU models), TSC can provide hardware diagnostics and service recommendations outside of ISU, as needed or requested. ISU cannot repair these machines.

Once repairs have been completed by the hardware technicians and/or manufacturer’s repair depot, the customer will be notified for pickup. If the computer was brought to the TSC by OIT Consultants, the respective consultant will deliver the computer to the user.

If the repair involves potential data loss due to hard drive failure, TSC technicians will perform a user data backup per the normal location of user data and any additional user’s instructions as noted on the intake form. User data will be restored to a folder on the desktop after repairs are completed. Users must confirm their data is restored and sign a form before leaving the TSC.

Standard Features

TSC hardware-certified technicians will perform a visual inspection and troubleshoot the hardware to the Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) level using manufacturer’s diagnostic tools, for ISU-approved hardware only. Repairs will be performed per manufacturer’s recommendations, using parts provided by the manufacturer.

Repairs for Accidental Damage will be performed by the manufacturer, at the manufacturer’s discretion.

For non-ISU approved machines (student-owned, non-ISU models), TSC can provide hardware diagnostics and service recommendations outside of ISU, as needed or requested.

SLA:  For non-urgent issues you can expect a reply within 4 business hours. Stop Work/Urgent request you can expect a reply within 15 minutes.
