Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
I strongly believe the #1 issue 'other than physical damage' that causes issues with laptops and desktop PC's is not keeping them cleaned and blown out of dust/debris. Just like changing the oil on a vehicle regularly greatly increases the life of an engine. Many issues with PC's can be so avoidable by a less than $5.00 'non flammable' can of air. Desktops are worse than laptops of course since they reside of desk cabinets or on the floor. It takes less than 10 minutes and even less time for a laptop to 'power the PC down, remove the power cord' and then blow out the power supply and its fan or on a laptop 'usually the back or side of the unit' where it's pulling in the cool air. If you have the courage to pull the cover off the desktop, 'again remove power' you will see the build up of dust inside the cabinet. Blow all this dust out if you can and this will help increase the longevity of your laptop or PC. Think of it as an oil change for your PC.
