As I posted in the Introduction forum I'm switching careers. I just took an IT job at a rural hospital and believe I'll start out doing workstation troubleshooting. It's been several years since my A+ course so I want to brush up on that. I'm thinking be ready with some commands like ipconfig, netstat, I have some written down in my notes, learn the switches, maybe even make some batch files for a thumb drive (or maybe that might be blocked in group policy or something). Also been looking at Event Viewer, relearning some stuff there. Anyway, I can do that on my own but maybe some of you pros could give me an idea of two or three of the common problems you see. I can do the research, but just point me in the right direction. I tried some internet searches for basic trouble shooting but those were pretty general, like make sure the thing is plugged in. I have a day or two before I start and need something to combat these jitters.
Another thought, are there any professional sites. I do hit the Microsoft TechNet site. Again, I can do searches on my own but sometimes there are jewels out there, like this one.
Thanks for your consideration!
