Since I do not have my own
classroom or computer, I don't have any previous experiences with the
Charter school network. I sent questionaires to the faculty and staff
asking what kinds of problems they have had in the past but got very few
responses. This is what I have come up with so far. I expect this section
to grow as my experience does...
The Internet connection is down. Contact Mr. Jolly...
My mouse sometimes locks up...
Hit the Control, Atl and
Delete buttons on the keyboard simultaneously. This will bring up a
dialog box. Try to highlight the line displaying the name of the program
you are using to close it down. The application may have become unstable
and "locked up." By closing only that program, you might be able to "wake
up" the computer without rebooting. If the mouse still won't work, shut
down the computer and reboot. This often fixes the problem. Also
double-check connection port to make sure the mouse did not become
disconnected from the processor.
When I reboot my computer, I can't get any sound to come out of the speakers or headphones...
First check to make sure the speakers or headphone jacks are properly and securely inserted in the correct port (space) on the computer. If that does not fix the problem, check the volume settings by right clicking the volume icon (picture of yellow speaker on the task bar). Open the volume controls and check the settings in the pop up window. Each indicator tab should be set about halfway up the dial. If these settings indicate that the volume is audible, see Mr. Jolly. If these settings indicated that the volume is muted, slide the tab up to increase the volume. If these tabs revert to the mute position each time you reboot, the start up configuration needs to be changed. Mr. Jolly can do this for you.
