Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Once in a Month.
1. Unplug all the connections from the system (Note: Make sure the system is off and the power supply is turned off, and before removing the connections carefully make a note of what all connections removed from the points, especially USB cables)
2. Open the back cover by removing screws or any locks present (See manual of the respective brand to open the cover)
3. Using the vacuum cleaner or Blower, use the Blower side and blow all the dust present on the motherboard, SMPS and especially near the Heat sink of the Processor fan.
(Note: In any case do not use the Blower section to dust as it may even pick the jumpers on the Motherboard. Also make sure while blowing the dust, in hurry dont touch the Motherboard keep it atleast 10cms distance and blow in order to avoid any scratches or damages to the Motherboard)
4. Finally fix back the back cover and connect back all the connections as it is position.
This helps in avoiding any errors generated in OS due to Hardware and also avoid getting hardware malfunctioning too.
