Use window cleaner, like Windex. Spray it on a towel, preferably a soft cloth one, and wipe the screen down when it's off. Try not to press too hard in any one spot, either :).

When I boot up my emachines desktop half of the screen is black


Possible causes of this problem include:

1.) A loose connection either of the graphics card or the cables to and from the monitor/graphics card.
2.) A faulty graphics card.
3.) A faulty monitor.
4.) A bad Graphics driver. See this guide entitled How to install Graphics Drivers, Nvidia and AMD Radeon!!!

Remove the graphics card and clean the gold fingers with tissue paper. Clean as mush dust as you can out of the system.

PC Tools- How to clean your computer


  • Cleaning the Computer
If you've noticed that your computer's keyboard feels sticky or the monitor screen appears spotted under the light, it's time to clean these pieces before internal damage occurs. Cleaning your computer's keyboard does not require special knowledge or skill. But you should take precautions to avoid damaging the internal parts when caring for the external hardware.mike_alozie_0.gif

1. Unplug the computer and all accessories before getting started. Anytime you attempt to clean an electric appliance it is important to disconnect the power source to reduce the risk of electrocution or shock. After unplugging the keyboard and monitor, along with any accessories that may be plugged in, use a damp clean cloth to wipe all the cords that are connected to the monitor and keyboard and remove dust balls or hair, along with anything else that might cling to them.

2. Move the computer monitor and keypad to one side of the desk and wipe the area clean where the equipment usually sits. Be sure to wipe a large parameter around the monitor area and let it air dry completely before returning the keypad to that area. You might want to use a clean towel or dry cloth to rub over the desk to be certain it is dry, as dampness can damage the machinery or cause it to stick to the table's surface.

3. Rinse the damp cloth in clear hot water and wring it nearly dry. Gently wipe the monitor screen, including all the corners, to remove dust and spots. Then wipe the surrounding areas and framework of the monitor, including the indicator lights that show when the system is operating. Don't forget the back of the monitor as well. If you have a laptop computer with a top that folds down and closes, wipe the hinges carefully, using a cotton swab for grooves and the latch. Check the latch to see if it is sticky or closes readily.

4. Next, go over the keyboard with the cloth, lightly rubbing around each key and button. Wipe around the sides of the keyboard, catching the off and on switch and CD player. Then use a cotton swab to ease around the edges of each key and row to retrieve minute amounts of dust and crumbs. Carefully clean around the lights, plug openings, and speakers, as well as other areas of your computer. Check to be sure you are not leaving wet traces on the equipment, as this means your cloth is too damp and should be wrung out more.

5. Allow the machinery to air dry, or use a soft cloth to pat the keyboard and monitor dry. Don't use fabric with lint or that is tough enough to scratch the screen. Reassemble all the cords and parts when you are sure the entire unit is clean and dry.

Plan to clean the keyboard and monitor every month or two. You may want to schedule maintenance for an interior cleaning once or twice a year. A clean computer is more likely to work well and last longer.

I have a completely blank screen and a tower revving with 3 bleeps about every 3 seconds. Can you help? De Hayward


This indicates that no RAM/Memory is being detected by the computer.

The RAM modules need to be removed and cleaned of dust. The gold fingers may be cleaned with tissue paper.
Insert them one at a time, in alternating slots. They may need to be cleaned more than once. A pencil eraser will also give a good clean contact surface.

Happy Computing!!!

What to use to clean flat screen monitor


As an easier option you can use dust cleaners like Colin etc but if you want something specific go to a nice Computer shop ans ask for LCD cleaners and use that. These LCD cleaners have high percentage of Phenol in them and less percentage of alcohol. And Phenol is considered best for cleaning LCD but you should not use something that contains only Phenol as its very reactive.
We don't use something that contains high % of alcohol as it is highly inflammable.

Thanks !!

Then you will use the compress air to blow out the remaining dust from the computer, try to blow the the dust from the CPU fan and other system fans in the computer.Usually these fans trap a lot of dust over time and this cause the fan not to push the right amount of air to keep the system cool can cause some components to over heat. After you finish cleaning inside the computer you will put back the cover in the way you took it off. your next step is to remove the keyboard from the computer by unplugging it from the computer and use the brush and compress air to clean it.
The next step is to clean the monitor, there are several types of liquid monitor cleaner available in computer stores.For example PC Clean Advance Formula is use to clean monitors along with a lint free cloth spray the monitor cleaner on the lint free cloth and wipe the monitor carefully, make sure the monitor is turn off before you attempt to clean it.

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.

Vertical bands and lines on computer monitor


Ensure that your Graphics card is connected properly, you may clean the contact fingers with tissue paper. If however you don't have a graphics card then you can put it down to bad drivers in which case you would download the latest of the net, use google, or heat, your computer may be getting too hot. Install as many fans as possible and clean your computer of any dust. Dust attracts moisture and can cause short circuits. My published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!! may help in this case, hey there is always some-thing to learn.
