Computers, we all use one. They are part of modern society, a very important part. That is why you must take care of your personal computer (PC). It stores important data and for most people, it can cause quite the amount of trouble if it stops working.
General computer care includes:
Browse the Internet responsibly, visiting only websites you trust and downloading files and programs only from reliable distributors. Another important factor would be to keep your computer area clean. Do not eat, drink or smoke in the same place you use the computer. Cigarette smoke can clog your computer hardware.
Be sure to have an effective antivirus installed on your computer. This will help protect you from threats you might encounter on the internet that can possibly harm your computer and cause you to lose data.
Cleaning Your Hardware
Shut down your computer and disconnect it from its power source, then open your computer’s case to access the components inside. Some cases require you use a screwdriver. Check your computer’s warranty to ensure that opening the case will not void your warranty. Don’t touch any components with your fingers.
You can also make use of compress air to blow dust and particles out of the case. Gently blast air into the fans and any open CD, DVD and I/O ports. Be sure that the air does not blow too hard and keep it a fair distance away from the computer components. This procedure should only be implemented by users who know what they are doing. Never use a rag or cloth to clean it out. Never use cleaning products or other liquids to clean it out.
