Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
First never eat aroun your laptop, but when you do make sure you dust it for crumbs later. this involves turning it off and using a vacuum, canned air, and making sure that the fingernails you clipped are not causing any keys to stick. now dont even get me started on soda! but these should never be:
A. close enough so that when they tip over they can spill or land or river flow next to the computer. Nor B using the cold sweat from the outside of the glass or moring dew that can short or even get wet a USB key that will indeed corode. No it wont do it on the spot nor will it do it in a week. but you will continue to transfer that moisture around until some where some time it will short it or damage it. its not worth the head ache. put drinks on the floor do not trust a straw. and refillable bottles do sweat, andwash your keyboard and hands often. if using an antibacterial on the keyboard test it o one of the keys you dont need or use often as some can and will take the key paint with them. if they do no fear you can replace the key for about 6 bucks normally with shiping.

Laptop speakers often suffer the consequences when you snack while using the laptop, usually while surfing the Web.
Small particles of chips, crackers and other sources of crumbs easily fall into the little holes of your laptop's speakers, therefore causing sound distortion.
This sound distortion problem can be fixed by cleaning out your laptop's speakers with a safe process that does not require any dismantling of the laptop.
Turn the laptop off, unplug the power cord and remove the battery to lower the risk of damage to the computer and electric shock.
Wipe away any exterior debris using a cotton swab.
Dip the cotton swab in rubbing alcohol and swab away to remove any sticky residue.
Rubbing alcohol dries quickly, making it ideal for cleaning electronics.
Use a hand-held vacuum with the brush attachment to vacuum out any debris in the speakers.
A full-sized vacuum may be too powerful and can damage the speakers.
Reinstall the battery, plug the computer back into the electrical outlet and start it up.
hope this helps
