- Make sure to keep your laptop or PC’s monitor away from direct sunlight. Prolonged exposure leads to fading of display colors.
- Be very careful when handling the monitor – this part of your laptop is very vulnerable. Do not touch the screen with your fingers to avoid leaving permanent dark spots.
- To wipe the screen, it is better to use special lint-free wipes. Whatever you do, do not use window cleaning liquids – they contain ammonia, which can irrevocably damage the screen.
- Before closing the laptop, always make sure that you’ve left nothing on the keyboard. Even a small object or a breadcrumb can damage the monitor’s glass surface.
- At the approach of a thunderstorm, turn off your computer, unplug your laptop, and, if you have cable Internet, unplug the cable too. It’s not a myth – during a thunderstorm, electric appliances can experience the full wrath of nature. Network filters are meant to protect your devices from overvoltage, but they would hardly withstand lightning, whose power can reach thousands of gigavolts (easykey, abc).
- If you’re living in a place where voltage fluctuations are a frequent occurrence, here’s a piece of advice: next time you buy a PC or laptop, purchase an Uninterruptible Power Supply device to protect your new equipment.
Removing dust and debris
- If you carry your smartphone in the main compartment of your handbag, its ports can become clogged with dust and small debris which might cause problems with the connection. To remove the debris, turn off the phone and carefully clean the ports with a toothpick, having first wound a piece of soft lint-free cloth around its end.
- We advise you to set aside a compartment in your handbag exclusively for keeping your smartphone.
- Once or twice a year (depending on operating conditions), laptops and computers need to be freed of the dust that collects inside them. If you notice that your computer’s cooler is getting noisy or that your laptop is becoming very hot, it is high time to do some cleaning.
- If you are afraid of disassembling and cleaning the computer yourself, or don’t know how to do it, contact the nearest service center.
