    I would say that one would be required just to replace a circuit board of some type. It doesn't require fault finding etc as that has been done by the Servicedesk or something like that. One would be sent the part and then go and replace it.

    Dell operate in the same way - I call their servicedesk and together (normally after 15minutes of heated discussion) we decided on what is broke. They dispatch the part to contracted engineer whose sole purpose is to arrive, drink, coffee and replace the part. If the PC/Laptop/Printer still doens't work then it's back to the drawing board with dell...

    In short one would most likely replace like for like on faulty hardware...

    I was sent an e-mail from cwjobs and this is the spec
    Hardware Break Fix Engineer required. My Client a market leading support company is looking for a Hardware Break Fix Engineer to provide the installation, configuration and troubleshooting on Pc's i.e. Dell, HP, NEC, . This will include swapping monitors and replacing hard drives. I was not to sure what it was or entails, sounds like a way to help you improve your knowledge of installing harddrives and get in the habit of doing it regular.

    cool, go for it.

    It does sounds like it'll just be replacing broke stuff.

    So what it'll probably entail is someone will phone up the company with a problem it'll get diagnosed as some piece of hardware is knackered then you would go out to the address a replace the knackered hardware.
