"I'm having problems logging in to the network. I'm able to enter my user name OK, but when I enter my password, no matter what key I type, it comes out asterisks."

"Hey, do you know how to use that 'Save As' option in Word? Mine just gives me a file list."
"My computer keeps making a squeaking noise. Can someone come over and lubricate the hard drive?"
"The computer said DEBUG, so I sprayed it with bug-spray and now it's not working. Should I have used a special brand?"
"I put my company cell phone through the wash, and it doesn't work any more. It's very clean, but it doesn't work."
"Steve just came by to change my monitor clarity like I asked, but now everything is too small. I can't see anything without a magnifying glass. And now I can't log in. My password doesn't seem to work with his username. Is the network down? Thanks!"
