Forsyth Technical Community College Computer Technology faculty and students are sponsoring a Computer Diagnostic Clinic on Friday, October 7 from 9 am – 1 pm in the Technology Building, Room 415, on Main Campus, 2100 Silas Creek Parkway in Winston-Salem.

The clinic is free and open to the public. At least 25 technicians from the college will be on hand to assist the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. No computers will be accepted after 12:30 pm.

The public can bring their PCs or Macs to the college to receive the following services:

  • Computer diagnostics
  • Minor computer repairs
  • Virus removal
  • Virus protection
  • Spam removal
  • Driver & system updates
  • File system clean-up or tune-up

While computers are being serviced, Forsyth Tech faculty will hold mini workshops for participants who are waiting for service, addressing topics such as how to secure personal computers and create simple websites.

Parking will be available in front of the Technology Building. Visitors can park in spaces reserved with orange traffic cones.

The clinic is held twice a year—in the spring and fall—and is used as an opportunity to give students hands-on experience, applying the skills they have learned to practical training. More than 100 computers were serviced during this event in March 2016.
