All of us love our laptops. But, do we take enough care of our favorite electronic gadgets that we are so fond of? We virtually spend day and night with it. We are not exaggerating. Why we know of the instances where people sleep right on the laptops and use the laptops as a pillow on their bed. But, this kind of treatment does not help you in a long run. It only deteriorates the life of the laptops no matter how much love you have for them.
Overheating, spoil display screen and many other issues are regular problems the laptop users face day in and day out. However, with simple measures, we can improve the longevity and quality of the laptops whether it is your own or you have taken it on Laptop Rental. We have listed down a few for you below:
1. Display Screen is not a handle:
In many instances, people carry their laptops using the display screen as the handle. This is a bad way of handling the laptop as the hinges might come out at any moment. Either use your elbow to rest the joint between the laptop screen and keypad comfortably on it or hold the back of the monitor and the keypad with both hands. We know you might like the former was better.
2. Handle with care:
Avoid bumping, jostling, and dropping the laptops as at some of the other point of time, the laptop will give away, if not the first time.
3. Avoid Spills:
Take a special care not to put the hot beverages or even water next to your laptop. A simple spill can cause irreparable damage to your gadget.
4. Protect the Screen:
Food crumbs could become the culprit. Many of us do this. We eat while we are working on the laptops, which can cause some food material to drop on the keypad. While the least that can happen are the crumbs getting under the keys or make the touchpad oily. However, in the worst case, it can spoil your display screen when you try to close the laptop and the food crumb turns out to be spiky.
- Never ever try to twist the screen of the laptop as an attempt to face the screen, it might crack the screen.
- Also, do not slam the screen while attempting to close the laptop. Doing it gently can get the same results.
5. Carry with care:
Use a buffer or a cushioned laptop bag especially if you take public transport. One bump into a hard surface can damage the laptop beyond repair.
6. Screen Care:
While this tip is just for aesthetic reasons, it is always advised to clean the laptop screen with a lint-free soft cloth. Pay heed to this tip and avoid using the window cleaners as they have ammonia which can dull the screen. Instead, use a cleaner you get exclusively for computer screens. Also, avoid sticking adhesive labels to the laptops which might leave unsightly marks on the screens.
