The computer won’t power up.
Check power connectors.
  • Plug in the back of the PC
  • Plug in the back of the monitor
  • Plug in the surge protector
  • Wall plug
Check the surge protector and press the reset button.  Then press the CPU power button to restart.
Check the monitor.  Is it powered up?
If the computer still won’t power up, we need to open a ticket with IT.

Can I use my flash drive/thumb drive/CD/floppy disk?
You cannot use flash drives on NNMC staff or guest PCs.  The IT One Stop shop has a computer that will scan flash drives for viruses and let people get a file off their flash drive.  You cannot use floppy disks but you can save files to CDs.  You can also view files on CDs, but you cannot download programs from CDs.
The computer says that someone else is logged in.
If you have reason to believe that person is no longer in the library, power down the PC by holding the power button down for about 5 seconds.  Wait about 5 seconds, and then press the power button again.
