Computer technical assistance
More often users experience situations in which they need some assistance on how to use a computer application or solve some computer problems. Sometimes this involves simple troubleshooting or improving the performance of a computer. Computer manufacturers in response to such customer needs have put up systems of services which are specifically designed to tackle such situations. Computer technical support is a service system provided by computer manufacturers, software designers and other computer application manufacturers to assist users of their services and applications in situations where they need help with certain instructions or on how to carry out repairs on their own.
There are various ways in which such services can be obtained from the manufacturer. The most common systems are the call in systems, by online means, through the company's website or an interactive tool by which users can interact. The calls in systems involve use of phones and occasionally short messaging systems by users who need assistance. When such calls are made, the front end technicians in the company's assistance centre listen and analyze the situation. They determine the problem and if they can handle it at their level, they issue assisting instructions t the user. In this way many users have been able to successfully obtain computer technical assistance.

Other tools such as discussion boards are another commonly used method by manufactures to offer computer technical support to users. The user with the problem posts it on the board then more experienced users give their opinion on the help topic.
