This is really funny! Computer Problems

Customer: My keyboard is not working anymore.
Tech support: Are you sure it’s plugged into the computer?
Customer: No. I can’t get behind the computer.
Tech support: Pick up your keyboard and walk 10 paces back.
Customer:! OK
Tech support: Did the keyboard come with you?
Customer: Yes
Tech support: That means the keyboard is not plugged in. Is there another keyboard?
Customer: Yes, there’s another one here. Ah…that one does work…


Tech support: What anti-virus program do you use?
Customer: Netscape.
Tech support: That’s not an anti-virus program.
Customer: Oh, sorry…Internet Explorer.


Customer: Hi, good afternoon, this is Martha,
I can’t print.
Every time I try, it says ‘Can’t find printer’..
I’ve even lifted the printer and placed it in front of the monitor,
but the computer still says he can’t find it…

I work in the IT department of a local hospital. One night at 3am, I got a call that one of the PCs in reception had been shut down, and they couldn’t switch it back on. I described how to power it up over the phone, but it was no use. So I drove in, walked up to the PC, and pressed the little gray button on the front.

Receptionist: “How did you do that???”
Me: “I just switched the power on.”
Receptionist: “Ah well, we’re not as computer literate as you.”
Customer: “Ok, I’ve turned the computer off, then on again. It still says, ‘Safe to power off, or press any key to reboot’?”
Tech Support: “No, not the monitor switch, the CPU switch.”
A laptop user complained that, while hooked up to a docking station in the office, his laptop worked flawlessly, but when he used it at home, it only worked for an hour or so and then died.
Tech Support: “Is it plugged in the mains OK?”
Customer: “Yes.”
Tech Support: “Is the mains adapter light on?”
Customer: “It doesn’t have one — just the cable to connect it to the phone.”
Tech Support: “No, that’s the modem. You should have another lead with a plug to connect the laptop to the mains power.”
Customer: “I don’t need one of those, though, do I?”
Tech Support: “You do if you want to work for longer than the batteries will last.”
Customer: “Oh. I thought that was what the modem was for — to download more electricity from the office.”
