    Please could you let me know what your task and the type of questions you got asked by the three members.

    Thanking you in advance.
    Some of the questions I got asked ICT wise were:

    Written;

    A printer is broke - what steps would you take to try and fix it?

    Test;

    Map a Network Drive,
    Open an Excel File,
    Solve the error.

    The error wasn't obvious at first as they didn't have auto-update on for the sums. So I added the numbers up again separately and it gave a different number to the original 'Total' cell. I recalced it and done


    Needless to say - I didn't get that one.

    The other one, where I'm at now was really basic. HDD power cable unplugged, No RAM, and the technician tried to fool us by putting the Clear CMOS over to the 'Clear' setting and leaving it there - which he thought would stop it booting - but it worked

    Hope that waffle helped someone

    Common questions for an IT techs job include:

    - What is DHCP?
    - What is DNS?
    - How to add a network printer?
    - How to add a PC to the domain?
    - How do you see the full ip configuration details for all network adapters of the PC you are using?
    - How to get a program or document to open up automatically when the computer is turned on?
    - What is the difference between a router, switch and hub?

    These are all ones I've had at least twice. All basic, but come up regularly. In a lot of cases, they just want to check you have some knowledge they can build on. They can teach you the more advanced stuff if you don't already know it.

    Exactly, as long as the main ones are listed you can't go wrong.

    Drivers, Connectivity, etc.

    You would think that, but you will be surprised how many people write questions for interviews and only have one or two correct answers, it's even worse when the IT people aren't doing the interviews and were asked to write the questions for the HR people to ask.
