You have to be careful when cleaning HDTV screens- some (like LCDs) are sensitive to pressure and should you press hard enough you could effectively crush the electronics in that part of the screen and turn them into an irreversible black spot.

Personally, when I have to clean my screens, I buy commercial screen cleaner and a pack of disposable lint free cloths. Spray the cleaner on the screen, then wipe it with the cloth. Don't use a lot of spray (one pump at a time) and make sure you do this when the screen is off and let it dry completely (about 1-5 min) before turning it back on.

NEVER EVER EVER SCRAPE ANYTHING OFF A FLAT PANEL SCREEN OF ANY TYPE!!

Please wait while windows sets up your computer


With the question as you asked it, I am assuming you are trying to re-install windows on the computer and it is stoping at the please wait screen. This could be the sign of a damaged disk. Inspect the disk for damange and dirt. You can try cleaning the disk carefully. I have done this using hot water and dish soap. Use your fingers to clean the surface, rub lightly. Dry the disk by blotting not rubbing and make sure the disk is dry before re-inserting it in the computer. If this still does not work, try to burn a copy of the disk from an other computer, sometimes burning it will fix errors on the disk. If this fails you will have to contact Dell for a new set of disks.

Hope this helps

The most important activity that you as a computer user can do is to keep your computer as clean as possible. Your system's user guide is the best source to find specific information about how to clean your system's outer components; but here are some basic tips you should always follow.
Computers are an everyday part of life in the modern world. However, computers require special attention and care in order for them to function properly and to operate safely. Here are some basic guidelines to help you maintain your computer equipment and to keep your equipment functioning for a long time. After all, keeping your equipment running will save you money.
Prevention to be taken on your computer
  • Keep computer equipment away from direct sunlight to prevent overheating.
  • Keep computer equipment away from direct exposure to water or humidity to prevent damage.
  • Keep computer equipment in a clean and dust free area.
  • Always use surge protectors to prevent electrical surge damage to your system.
  • Place an anti-static mat in the area where you are operating your computer to eliminate or prevent anti-static damage to your system.
  • Have your system's interior cleaned at least once every year to keep it running smoothly and to protect your investment.
Things to be cautioned about while operating your computer.
  1. NEVER eat or drink while operating your computer. Food crumbs can easily damage your computer.
  2. NEVER place an open container containing water on or near your computer to avoid electrical shock.
  3. NEVER use your computer's keyboard with dirty or sticky hands.
  4. NEVER allow your pets near your computer. Dust and hairballs can accumulate inside the computer's case and cause your system to overheat.
  5. YOU SHOULD NEVER spray any type of cleaner into your computer's air vents or you could damage your system.

Computer maintenance
Basic computer maintenance should be part of your regular routine. Keeping your computer dust and dirt free, will guarantee that your computer will last and will give you years of reliable performance. Please consult your user's guide for more specific maintenance practices and intervals.
How to clean your computer system
Computer systems require cleaning of internal parts especially when used outside of a clean environment. However, only an authorized technician should open the computer case and clean sensitive electronic components. Consult your user guide to determine the best interval for internal cleaning and take your computer to a certified technician.
Monitor screen
Your computer monitor is likely to be the component that will require the most attention, because computer monitors tend to get dirty from regular use and from dust. To clean your computer monitor or LCD, you can use special chemicals design to clean computer monitors without damaging them.
To clean your computer's screen you can use OPTECH CTR Screen Care. This special cleaner is an anti-static cleaner and coating which safely removes fingerprints and smudges from computer display screens. This cleaner also leaves the surface treated with an invisible dust repellent film, which contains an optical ingredient which fills-in minute scratches eliminating surface distortion and reducing eye fatigue.
How to apply a computer screen cleaner
First, NEVER spray the cleaner directly onto your computer. Instead, spray a lint-free cloth lightly with the computer screen cleaner, and then clean your screen. Be sure to hold the cloth away from your computer when spraying the cleaner to the cloth.
Keyboard maintenance
Dirt and other debris can fall or accumulate between the keys and cause damage or prevent the keys from functioning properly. To clean your computer's keyboard you must use either canned air/gas or a small computer-specific vacuum cleaner. NEVER apply any cleaner or liquid directly to your keyboard. If the keys are dirty, use a lint-free cloth that has been sprayed with computer cleaner to lightly and carefully clean your computer's keyboard. DO NOT clean your computer while the computer is operating, and avoid using your computer till the cleaner has dissipated to avoid possible damage to your equipment. Consult your user's guide for precise instructions on your particular machine.
Case/Tower maintenance
Your computer case will require maintenance. You should remove dust and grime from your computer's air vents and your computer's case. ALWAYS use canned air/gas to clean your computer's vents or air intakes. Canned air/gas cleaners are idea for cleaning air vents, keyboards, disk drives and computer case crevices. The exterior of your computer's case can be cleaned with a lint-free cloth sprayed with an anti-static computer cleaner. When in doubt about how to clean your computer system, ALWAYS consult your user manual or call your system's technical support department.
Safe and clean computing will save you money!
Following these basic computer care guidelines should help you to take good care of your computer system, and keep it running for years. Preventive maintenance will keep your system from having problems and will save you money in the long run. For specific questions about your particular system, you should ALWAYS check your user guide or contact technical support.

I could not connect the printer but I have the CD driver. There is a problem when i try to install the dhe driver. The scanner is Ok without any problem.


A damaged CD, check for scratches or dirty stains, to be wiped clean before reinstallation. Check the Disk driver for malfunction by trying another functioning CD in driver. The printer would hardly function the installation CD installed. meanwhile check on the acquiring software drivers on the website of the printer manufacturer. examples, www.microsoft.com should provide compartible codes to priter repairs.
