Computer Support Requests:

All UGS workstations are covered by a support contract with ITS. Therefore, if you are experiencing difficulty with your workstation, please contact ITS directly by calling ITS Managed Desktop Support at 512-475-9406. An ITS desktop support representative will answer and attempt to assist you. If the issue cannot be resolved over the phone, the trouble ticket will be routed to our UGS primary support team. At that point, one of the team members assigned to your area will contact you to arrange to work on the issue remotely or to schedule an onsite support visit. You can also request support by emailing them at: help@its.utexas.edu.

Typical Desktop Support Issues:

  • Computer won't start up or crashes spontaneously
  • Inability to login to computer
  • Applications freeze or crash spontaneously
  • Outlook crashes or won't sync to Exchange server
  • Shared Exchange calendar sync issues*
  • Poor performance (running slow, freezing up, etc)

*Please note: Before contacting ITS about calendar syncing issues, please review the new Office365 help document, Best Practices for Sharing and Delegation.

Additional Desktop Support Issues:

  • Printing problems (Note: HP Plotter is not supported by ITS)
  • Software installations and updates
  • Operating System updates and patches

The standard procedure is to attempt to resolve the issue while you are on the phone. If you prefer, you can simply submit a request via the ITS Email Form. Whatever method you choose for contacting ITS, please be prepared to provide your EID and the UT asset tag number of your computer. The UT asset tag is small silver barcode tag bearing a 6-digit number somewhere on the system. It is usually on the back of the screen or base on iMacs, the top of the tower on PCs, and the bottom of laptops.
