Myths About Computer Repair and IT People
7 Computer Repair Myths
I’ve been in the computer repair business for some time now, and there seems to be a few myths that many people believe about computer repair, computer repair companies, Ouveillan and other related topics. Here we’ll dispel those myths.
Unless you’re a computer repair guru or techie yourself, chances are you may have been the victim of one or more of the following PC and computer repair myths at some point.
Read on to find out what these common computer related myths are, see if you’ve been duped, and finally get the truth about computer service and repair.
1) My computer guy knows everything about every program out there.
Expect your computer repair guy to know all the details of every program you have installed on your PC? Perhaps you expect too much.
There are so many programs around and they are constantly changing. It would take more than a lifetime to learn them all. While a given computer repair tech may know about common applications (i.e. Word, Quick Books, etc), they may not know anything about programs specific to your industry or other applications that aren’t as common.
2) The computer repair person can fix some problems I’m having with a website(s)
Another all-to-common computer related myth.
Your computer tech cannot usually “fix” problems with websites (such as Facebook) because the website itself is actually on a server which is another computer built to run web pages and share content located somewhere else. Only the people who administer the website can access the files and the computer which hosts the site (the same rule above also applies: no one knows everything about every website; plus they come and go).
