New Computer Recommendations
If you are considering the purchase of a new machine, please refer to our recommendations for New Windows Systems and New Macintosh Systems.
Windows 3.1, 95, 98, Mac OS 9 and lower, and Unix operating systems are NO LONGER supported at Endicott. (We will not be able to assist you if you have problems with these systems.)
When bringing your computer system to college, it is a good idea to also bring along all of the manuals, driver diskettes, and other things that may have come with your computer.
- Operating System Installation CD (e.g. for Windows XP, Vista or 7, or MacOS) and the license certificate that came with it, verifying that you own a license for the operating system.
- Diskettes, CDs, and manuals for your computer and its peripherals; i.e. CD-ROMs, Ethernet cards, removable media (flash drives, etc.) special keyboards, special mice or trackball devices.
- Sales receipt for your computer in case warranty work needs to be done.
- Technical support phone numbers necessary to troubleshoot problems.
