Laptops come handy at various situations and in places where the desktops cannot be used but apart from using these it becomes our responsibility to ensure that this product stays with us for a longer time.
So here are the tips that will guide you on how to use the Laptops to maximize their life in this week’s Tip of the Week.
•Shut It Down
A laptop does require rest and therefore it is necessary to shut down the laptop when not in use. Shutting down when not in use also prevents the laptop from overheating.
•Adjusting Power Settings
Adjusting your power options will help your laptop from heating up when not in use even if for short periods of time. Keeping the laptops on hibernation or standby is a good option.
•Before You Pack It Up
Make sure that you before you put your laptop into its carrying bag that it is shut down. A notebook that has been left on can melt. When enclosed in a notebook bag there is no air circulation and the results can be worse than melting.
•Avoid Lap Burn
Longer use of the device can cause burns to your lap, thus to prevent this you can use the laptop desk or cooler. On the other hand, some laptops also have more vents for the heat to escape.
Always make a habit to not to use a soft material like a soft cloth as a buffer between the laptop and your lap. Try to keep it up on a hard surface that allows proper ventilation.
• Protecting the LCD
Never pick up a laptop by holding the LCD, and never push, squeeze or otherwise apply force to the LCD or to its surrounding screen. What this will do is, it will help protecting the LCD from getting damaged/scratched and will also protect the liquid present in the display.
• If you find your screen damaged or something then it is better not to touch the screen as the liquid present in the screen may spill out.
• Do not wipe the surface of the LCD with a wet cloth. Always use a soft, dry cloth, instead.
• Do not place any object (notepads/paper documents etc.) between the keyboard and LCD screen while closing the laptop, this could damage both the screen and the keyboard.
• It is better to not to keep any object (light or heavy) on to a laptop, as it may damage it with its weight or magnetic properties.
The tips are not new but just an observations that I wanted to share with you so that you can extract the most out of your system.
