What do I do if . . .
My Chromebook isn’t charged?
The library doesn’t lend out chargers. Replacement chargers may be issued for a fee.
My Chromebook is broken?
- Go to the library and have your Chromebook checked.
- If your Chromebook must be kept for repairs, you will be issued a long-term Chromebook loaner until your original one is fixed. Any fees will be added when repairs are done.
- Do not avoid or delay asking for help!
- Trying to fix it on your own can cause more damage.
- Damage often gets worse (and more expensive) if you don’t fix it.
My Chromebook is lost?
- Report it immediately. Tell the library staff and we will help you. Our #1 concern is that you are able to do your work.
- The Chromebooks require a GUHSD login and can be deactivated. There is a good chance of recovery.
How do I print?
Chromebooks can print via Google Cloud Print. You need a printer that has cloud print capabilities or a computer that is connected to a printer, connected to the internet, and has the Chrome web browser. More information is available here: https://www.google.com/cloudprint/learn/
Printing in the Library
- You can always print in the library. Look for directions on how to cloud print from your Chromebook. Don’t hesitate to ask for help.
- Plan wisely to print before class and allow time for technical issues and waiting, especially near or on due dates. You will not be provided a late pass.
- Save paper and ink! Use PRINT PREVIEW, set page ranges, and try printfriendly.com.
- Worksheets and documents from your teacher’s websites, and school forms are free. You may print anything school related for FREE. You may not print non-school items.
When in doubt, reboot!
- Hold the power button until your computer turns off and then turn your computer back on.
- Log out, “remove your user,” and log in again re-typing your full email address.
- Remove user by using the drop-down in the top right corner of your login screen avatar.
- Make sure Chrome is updated.
- Got to SETTINGS > ABOUT CHROME OS> Check for and apply updates. Follow directions if update is needed.
Can’t connect to Wi-Fi?
- Check and correct your date and time settings to be accurate.
