You can use cotton to clean it. Spray the cloth with water or a mild window cleaning solution then wipe the screen. You can use the same damp cloth to clean the entire monitor case, as well. If you prefer, you can also use moistened paper towels to clean CRT monitors, You will be only cleaning the outside of the monitor case and screen. Never open the monitor casing which contain electric voltage that can cause a shock.

Make sure the monitor is off. Spray a small amount of glass cleaner on a paper towel.
Then wipe the dirt away.

Sony VAio touchscreen hypersensitivity


Step 1:
Touch screen monitors are both input and output device as they receive and display information from one peripheral device the monitor screen without the use of mouse or keyboard. They are used in a variety of different applications such as point of sale (POS), cash registers, ATM machines, among others. Touch screen monitors are very sensitive so proper cleaning and maintenance is of utmost importance to maximize its performance and prolong its life. Follow these cleaning steps:

Turn off both the computer and touch screen. This way, you can see everything that needs to be cleaned. Some touch screen applications has a cleaning mode which turns off the screen for the specific purpose of cleaning. However, the monitor's brightness can make you miss some areas. Wet a soft, lint-free or microfiber cloth with distilled water. Wring out as much water as you can. Make sure the cloth is damp but not wet. Wipe the screen in a gentle motion to remove dust, oil, or fingerprint smudges off. Another option is to use a screen cleaner kit that includes antistatic wipes. You can buy this at various electronic or online stores. Spray a little solution on a wipe then rub it gently across the screen. Finish cleaning the touch screen with a dry lint-free cloth to wipe any excess moisture, then turn it back on.

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.

Flashing magenta screen, blue screen and shutdown


Your screen is bad more than likely. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your original monitor, then the Video Card inside the computer is bad.

System starts up but goes to blank screen


This may happen due to several reasons. First, check if the power supply line to the monitor is loose at any of the two ends. If yes, tighten it. As a simple measure, keep that blank screen and tighten the codes to see if it works. If that is not the case, switch off your system and UNPLUG it. Then open up your CPU and clean all those dusts present there. Sometimes this problem can occur due to moisture present there. So wipe everything with dry cloth. CAUTION: DO NOT USE COTTON. USE ONLY A DRY CLOTH. Before closing down the CPU, take out the RAM(s), wipe it's tip with CLEAN COTTON slightly dipped in spirit (After Shave Lotion will do). Then put back the RAM(s) in position. This is not only to clean it, but also to make it a bit more seated. Now start up your system to check if it is OK. If none of this works, try re-installing the OS. This is a last measure and it can fix your problem, mostly.

Computer monitor needs cleaning


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 :).
