So You Think You Can Tech: Basic Computer Troubleshooting – My Computer Won’t Turn On

Tech Tuesday with Jacksonville Public Library

It happens to all of us at one point or another. Maybe your computer starts slowing. Maybe the ‘W’ on your keyboard stops working. Maybe your printer won’t connect. Is it the WiFi Goblin messing you’re your machine? Have vaguely defined ‘hackers’ taken over your computer to launch satellites and spy on your credit?! Regardless of the issue, or its cause, you have probably looked at your computer, sighed, and started mentally shelling out for the hundred-dollar Geek Squad appointment.

#TechTuesday with E-Services

Communication is an amazing concept. It allows us to convey ideas, emotions, and, occasionally, cute pictures of kittens.

These days though we use our devices. Instead of talking, we text. Instead of writing, we email. And instead of cute kittens…well they are still cute, that’s how they trick you. What can be even trickier is the differences between email and texting. Those differences can lead to generational issues, ones I hope to help ease today.
