Chromebook Tips, Tricks and Trouble Shooting

Having trouble with your Chromebook?

1) Power Off your Chromebook. You may use the power button in the upper right hand corner of the Chromebook. Once it turns off, count to 10 and press the power button again. The Chromebook will install the updates in 30 seconds and turn on.

2) If you see a yellow yield sign in the password area of your user picture, click in the upper right hand side of the user picture, select "Remove this person" and then "Remove this user". This removes the corrupted user profile. Sign in again with your WVEIS/lunch number and Computer password. You will need to set up the VMWare App again. Follow the instructions below. You will need to setup your Arctic Academy Folder again. Follow the How-To videos on the menu to the left.

3) If you see a yellow exclamation point, you need to let your teacher know and bring the Chromebook to Mrs. Allen between 7:10-7:30 am or during Power Hour.

4) If you cannot connect to the Mon Schools wifi, Turn your Chromebook off and restart. This generally fixes the problem. If the problem persists,please let your teacher know and bring the Chromebook to Mrs. Allen between 7:10-7:30 am or during Power Hour.


5) If your touch pad stops working, you can use a corded or wireless mouse until you are able to bring your Chromebook to Mrs. Allen between 7:10-7:30 am or during Power Hour in Room 228b by the Innovations lab. 

6) If you have lost your Chromebook charger or it has been chewed by an animal, you may purchase one at UHS for $25. See Mrs. Allen for details.
