A Tech Desk technician will review the request and contact you with any additional questions. They may also try and resolve the issue with you if possible.

A faster turn around time can be expected if the computer is turned on and connected to the YSU wired network.

How much does it cost?

No cost associated with software troubleshooting from YSU IT. There may be additional costs if 3rd party support is needed and there is no valid maintenance contract. All 3rd party support which has additional cost must be approved by the department financial manager before engaging.
