Technical Services works in conjunction with OIT's Networking group to assist faculty, staff and students in gaining access to CMU's campus network resources and repairing problems as they arise. We are able to assist in a range of problems ranging from limited to no connectivity, bandwidth quota issues for students, computer network adapter issues, and the setup of network printers, scanners, and storage devices.
Virus and Malware Cleaning

Basic Data Recovery
Technical Services can recover data from many computers where physical damage or virus/malware intrusion has rendered them unusable. In cases where Technical Services is not able to recover data from damaged computers we are able to engage the services of third party data recovery companies for additional assistance.
