Preventive maintenance in six steps
Preventative maintenance can be defined as the set of actions and periodic tasks performed on a computer to help optimize performance and prevent serious errors (as the name suggests), thus prolonging its life. These actions and periodic tasks can be summarized in a series of six steps.
1. Clean your PC internally:
This removes the dust stuck to the parts and the whole interior of our PC. First disconnect the external cables that supply electricity and provide energy to your computer.
A small device that blows air, or a small special vacuum accompanied by a small brush can be used. Be sure to pay special attention near the microprocessor and the source.
2. Review internal connectors PC:
Make sure they these connectors are tight and not loose. In addition, be sure to check that the expansion cards and memory modules are properly connected.
3. Cleaning the PC monitor:
Only uncover the PC monitor only if you are at a repair shop and it is completely off with no power. Otherwise, just blowing air into by the grids and cleaning the screen and filter with a dry cloth that doesn’t leave behind residue or lint should work well..
4. Addressing the mouse:
For an optical mouse to run smoothly it is important to always keep the pad clean (or the mouse pad in general; this is valid for any type of mouse) and avoid the existence of particles that obstruct the lens.
5. CD-ROM, DVD, CD-RW, Blu-Ray:
Maintaining these with a laser device is not recommended if you are not trained. There are some specially designed to clean the lenses of this type of unit.
6. The outer surface of the PC and its peripherals:
Cleaning the outer surface is easily done with a cloth moistened with liquid soap, or a special substance containing no solvents or alcohol. Once clean, dry with a lint-free cloth.
