Tech Support Cheat Sheet
'Hey Megan, it's your father. How do I print off a flowchart?'
Title text: 'Hey Megan, it's your father. How do I print off a flowchart?'


In the Tech Support world, many times the problem with the computer can be diagnosed and solved by simply using Google effectively. This flowchart demonstrates what most tech support does when they encounter problems with which they don't know exactly what to do. After showing this to someone, they should be able to solve most of their computer issues on their own (Stop laughing so loud computer people).

Title Text - Megan's father somehow has seen this and can't figure out how to print it off, so he calls Megan. Does Megan's Dad read these daily?!?!

Most people I know that have to ask for computer help couldn't read a flowchart in the first place. This may be the problem. 23:01, 17 November 2014 (UTC)
