Computers were present for decades already and it has affected our lives in many ways. Almost every person in this world knows what a computer is and how to operate it. It is not new that computers aren’t that cheap and that’s why we need to take care of it to avoid paying thousands of pesos for repairs. I’ll be sharing some tips on how to maintain and to prolong your computer’s life.

Clean your computer once in a while – Cleaning a computer isn’t that hard; you can use a blower and a brush to clean it. You can clean it even once a month to avoid dust accumulation. Dust is one of the main causes of CPU overheating in computers because it accumulates especially on CPU heat sinks and fans which can cause heat buildup.

Place your computer on a cool but dry place – It is recommended to put your computer in a place where the temperature is cool to avoid overheating. Never put your computer near windows to avoid direct sunlight and rain. If possible, air conditioned rooms are advisable for heavy users or gamers.

Avoid eating and drinking near your computer – Eating and drinking near your computer must be avoided to prevent liquid spillage and also to avoid tiny bits from entering your keyboard especially in laptops.

Allow your computer’s to rest – All things when abused are not good and can even cause damage. In computers, shut them down for a couple of hours specially for gaming computers. You might have a good cooling system but it is still advisable to allow them to rest for a while. In laptops, it is a big NO to use your laptops 24/7 because it can easily overheat due to its small parts. If you are also at home, it is advisable to remove your laptop battery and connect it directly to the power supply to maximize your laptop’s battery life.

Immediately replace defective parts – Replace defective parts immediately to avoid causing much more problems in your computer. It can even cause a critical system failure when a specific defective part is not replaced immediately.

Taking care of a computer is easy; just make sure that your computer is in its best condition all the time. The life of a computer really depends on the user. If the user knows how to take care of it, it can last for a long period of time. But if the user doesn’t care much about their computers, it can shorten the lifespan of your computer.
