A combination of the above choices, depending on the situation. Small issues I sort out myself. Some settings are managed by domain / network admins, so they have to change them. E.g. if a laptop has to be formatted and the OS reinstalled. I had to replace the battery myself on my laptop a while back, which I'm able to do. For bigger HW and some SW issues they send out a technician (I'm at a remote branch, not the main office where the IT dept. is).
