The Desktop Support team offers the following services for department ECU-managed Windows and Mac desktop and laptop computers.

Installation and Repair

Set up. New ECU-managed systems for employees are imaged with university-approved software, including operating system, Microsoft Office Suite, security apps and more. Data files from a previous work system are transferred to the new from the user's backup. See the Related Articles list on this page for more information on how to prepare for a new ECU computer.

Repair. The technician diagnoses the problem and repairs the system at that time, if possible. Occasionally, the repair requires new parts like a new hard drive, for example. Parts may be covered under system warranty or the cost charged back to your department (FOAP required). Please discuss out-of-warranty repair options with the technician. Ordered parts usually arrive within three business days. There is no charge for repairs.

Clinic Support. A technician responds within 2 hours to an ECU-managed clinic computer issue.
