1. How to Clean a Laptop
Since the laptop is an expensive device, you should be careful to clean the screen. Use a soft cloth with no imprint or monogram on it, for these may scratch the screen. In addition, the cloth should be lint-free, in case that it will leave fibres on the screen, and make the display obscure.
Donít spray any cleaner directly on the screen. Instead, spray onto the cloth.
The screen is the most expensive component of your laptop. Make a cautious chioce of the cleaning spray. Harsh sprays could turn the screen yellow, and may even cause cracking. Use plain water or vinegar to clean the screen.
2. Place a Laptop
Hard drives operates on the property of magnetic flux, so any electrical field may damage the hard disk and the data in it. Place your mini laptop at least 13 cm away from any electrical appliance that radiates a strong magnetic field,such as a microwave oven.
3. Give It A Breather
If you have just shut down your laptop, another startup should be 30 seconds later. This ensures that the hard drive has spun down, and does not suffer from sudden switching on and off.
4. Data Backup
Back up your data often. Laptops are mobile devices, and are vulnerable to damage. Also, itís possible that the hard disk simply crashes. Remember not to back up too frequently.
5. Battery Care
When charging the battery for the first time, it should be 12 hours or the minimum charge time mentioned in the manual. For daily use, charge the battery to full capacity, use the laptop on battery power until it is completely drained.
Donít leave your battery unused for a long time. Use it regularly to keep it in good condition. Switch off the AC adapter when you donít use your laptop so as to avoid overcharging.
