Tech Support With A Difference!

Tech Support With A Difference!
I woke up early that day and decided to go to the cafeteria to grab some breakfast. The cafeteria was quite empty and one could barely see a student or two. I quickly finished my breakfast and went back to my room. I switched on my laptop and started to browse through the Internet to look for a game that I wanted to download.

I went to the website where I usually download games. However, I was quite taken aback when another website opened. I thought I might have typed in the wrong web address, so I typed in again, this time very carefully, but it directed me to some other website. I couldnt understand what was going on and how every time some other website would open even when I typed in the right web address. This kept on happening repetitively and it was getting on my nerves. It was almost impossible to work on anything, forget about even downloading a game!

It had nearly been half an hour ever since I was fiddling around with my laptop to workaround the issue. Just then, I noticed a slip pinned to the soft-board above my desk. I remembered my roommate, Anthony, relating to me once about a tech support company for his laptop. He had written down the name or the company and its number on the slip and had suggested me to call them up whenever I had any problems with my laptop. I sure thought this was the day when I would actually use it. I got up from my bed and took out the slip, it read iYogi and the number was written below.

I thought a call wouldnt be of any harm and rather, optimistically, it might do me some good. So I picked up my cell phone and punched in the number that was written on the slip. The call was answered almost immediately. Soon, I was speaking to a lady on the other end. She asked me for my name and contact details, which I gave instantly. Then, she asked me about the problem I was facing with my system. I narrated the whole incident to her and told her how I kept on getting redirected to another website whenever I typed in the web address I wanted to visit. She listened to me very attentively and then posed some questions with regard to the functionality of my laptop. I answered them clearly, leaving no room for any sort of confusion. She then told me that she had entered all the details related to my problem and that I would be receiving a call back shortly. I did and when I answered the phone, the technician gave me some steps that I had to perform on my laptop to fix the problem. She assisted me in quickly running through these steps on my laptop and also helped me to boost up the security of my laptop, so that the chances of such an ugly incident could be averted in the near future. The call lasted for almost an hour and by the end of it, my laptop was working perfectly. I thanked her for fixing my laptop and got back to work quite contended with the services that I had paid for.

It was a usual day at the University and I was hanging around in the senior faculty lounge with my colleagues discussing various teaching policies over coffee. I did not have many lectures that day and it practically felt like a half-day. After coffee, I dragged myself out of the conversation and started working on my laptop. Soon, one of my student, Sabrina, came up to me and asked me if I had time to clear her doubts over the topic I had discussed in class a while back. I like students who take the initiative to come up to me and have discussions. I instantly agreed and told her I would be more than happy to run her through my lecture again.

She had jotted down all the important points in bullets and all she wanted me to do was to elaborate on them. She had them written neatly on a sheet of paper. I reached out for my laptop and switched it on. I then turned on the Wi-Fi in order to connect to the Internet. I had all my presentations stored on Microsoft Outlook so I clicked on it and opened the mail containing my last lectures presentation.

I clicked on the attachment and as I waited for it to download, I asked Sabrina what were the major challenges she was facing with the discussion topic. While we discussed, I checked on my laptop to see if the application had opened yet, but I could see that it had stopped running. I tried opening the attachment again, but it wasnt responding anymore now. I tried to open the attachments with other mails but none of them were opening either. I browsed through the settings of Microsoft Outlook but found it hard to understand how to get the attachment files to open. Sabrina watched me patiently for about 15 minutes, while I was fiddling with the settings. She finally intervened with a suggestion that I should call up a iYogi Tech Support. She said it was a tech support company and added that she always relied on them whenever she had any problem with her laptop. I was preoccupied with my problem but took mental notes of everything she was saying. When I realized I was at my wits end, and I couldnt get anything to work on my own, I decided to look out for iYogi Tech Support.

I quickly ran a search on iYogi over the Internet to check the credibility of their services and when I was quite convinced with what I was getting into, I went ahead and clicked on the chat option in their website to get connected to an online technician. I was asked for my details including contact information, e-mail ID etc. After I filled out the details, a technician greeted me and introduced herself to me. She verified my contact details and inquired me about the problem that I was facing with my laptop. It didnt take me long to give her every single detail. She posed a few questions to me and thereafter, she told me that she would need an access to my laptop screen to get the problem fixed.

I immediately gave her the access and soon, she started working on my laptop. She performed a few steps while I watched and after working on it for close to half an hour, she told me to open the attachments of any one mail on Microsoft Outlook. It worked! I could open all attachments with no hiccups. I thanked the technician and closed the chat window.
