Tips & How-to's 22nd October 2012 3092


The buildup of dust in and on your computer can affect your computer's overall performance and behaviour.

When dust builds up on the computer's interior and exterior  the computer's vents and fans can become clogged, leading to overheating. Overheating is a computer's worst enemy and a good cleaning will help things to cool down and extend the life of your computer in the process.

There may be many symptoms of heat issues such as games that stop responding during play, the computer stops responding during use, fans inside the computer become louder or the computer unexpectedly restarts or displays a blue fault message.

 

Tips to reduce the amount of dust entering your computer

 

  1. Keep your computer elevated and off the floor.
  2. Store your computer away from air vents.
  3. Clean the area around your computer on a routine basis.
  4. Keep all food and drinks away from your computer.
  5. Wash your hands thoroughly before using your computer.

 

Warning: Opening the computer's case may void the warranty, check with the manufacturer first before opening the case.

For more information on how to clean your computer or accessories safely and effectively please contact your local PC PAL engineer.
