    Valuable Laptop/Notebook Tips

  • Always keep Notebooks off floor
    While on the floor Notebooks are easily stepped on, children may play with them etc.
  • Always use a surge protector
    A power surge can happen at anytime and ultimately may damage your Notebook.
  • Don't keep paper in between the screen and keypad.
    Paper can scratch the screen..
  • Never leave your Notebook in a cold environment.
    When you bring your Notebook back into a warm place from a cold place condensation will form on the inside of the Notebook and may cause electrical shorts within the Notebook.
  • Don't place your Notebook on soft surfaces.
    This will block off air vents/fans and may result in overheating.
  • Don't let it fall out of your carrying case or bag.
    A good leather case with separate compartments is the safest way to carry your Notebook. Make sure you zip the case closed or close any bag that it is in so when you pick it up it does not fall out..
  • Never drink liquids around your Notebook.
    Serious damage may result for any liquid being spilled on your notebook especially when it it powered on.  If you do spill any liquid on your notebook, turn it off immediately, unplug it from the power source and remove the battery even if it is still working.  Then take it to a professional for cleaning before turning it on again.
  • Never try to fix your Notebook yourself
    Notebooks have many small parts that can easily be broken, misplaced and lost. Leave it to the professionals!
