Fearrington Cares Computer Help volunteers have experience and expertise in both Mac and PC computers, tablets and smartphones. They can help you with problem diagnosis(troubleshooting), software or hardware installation, peripheral connections (wired and wireless) and other hardware, software and networking issues. Some volunteers may be able to assist with other internet-enabled equipment, such as smart TVs, thermostats, etc, however, this is not a principal activity of the Team.
To request a Computer Help volunteeer:
- Call the center (919-542-6877).
- If no one answers the phone, leave a message. Include your name, phone number, type of computer, and a brief description of the problem.
- A volunteer will contact you within one or two days to set up an appointment.
Please note that while Computer Help volunteers may be able to assist with how to carry out specific tasks in various computer applications, they should not be expected to provide general instruction in application software such as word processing or spreadsheets. Those needing general software instruction are advised to seek that training by other means, one of which is the Chatham Community Library in Pittsboro on the Center Carolina Community College Campus at 197 NC Hwy 87 N.
