New Computer Setup
This page describes the cost and workings of a new PC install on the administrative network. This does not cover "upgrades".
The pricing for a new PC (out of the box from a manufacturer) is a standard five hour fee for setup and install.
(ex. Current Price x 5 = your price).
This includes the setup and install of all of the hardware (unless there is something unusual or strange) and all of the standard software (Windows 2000 sp-2, MS Office 97 professional, McAfee Anti-Virus, Sessions, Netscape, and (if wanted) WP 5.2).
Standard five hour fee + extra time + any other extra material = your price
The following is what you get and what we do.
Check packing slip against all shipped components. This includes all licensing for Windows and Office Pro products.
Unpack and install every component. Make sure all components "fit" and do not conflict with each other.
Test every hardware and software component. Speakers, mouse, keyboard, etc. Make no assumptions.
If there are any problems with the above, it is the manufacturer's problem. If there are any problems contact the customer and explain the problem with the computer. Give them the option of dealing with the manufacturer themselves or having us do it for them. If we have to deal with the manufacturer, then we will start billing for the time it takes us to get a working computer. As soon as we get a system that is OK we will go back off the clock and resume the setup for the standard scheduled cost.
If the customer has already setup the PC or removed it from it's packaging ISD will not be responsible for any missing or broken hardware. The customer will be responsible for calling the manufacturer and getting any problems solved.
