Powering on your computer

If you have not logged on to your on campus computer for a while or are using a laptop in an office that has not been connected recently, please follow these instructions:

Connect your computer

  • If you are bringing a computer and devices back to the office, connect your computer, monitor, docking station, keyboard, mouse, network cable, and all other devices and cables.
  • If you left your computer in your office, double-check the cable connections to make sure that everything is still connected before turning your computer on.

If you have any missing parts or cables or need assistance connecting, you can call the Help Desk at (609) 219-3000 or create a ticket here.

 

Turn on your Computer and Log in

  • Press the power button on your computer, monitors, and everything else that requires power to ensure that they startup. Check the batteries of your mouse and keyboard if they are wireless.
  • Log in to your computer. This may take a moment if you have not logged in on campus in a while.

If you cannot log in, call the Help Desk at (609) 219-3000 or create a ticket here.

 

Verify your Connections

  • Open a web browser (Chrome or Firefox) and go to a familiar web page to ensure that you can browse the internet.   
  • Connect to your file shares, including Google Drive.
  • Print a test page to your departmental and personal printer(s)

If you need further assistance, call the Help Desk at (609) 219-3000 or create a ticket here.
