This was one of the major facts I found out during my research.
I found out that all computers has been designed to produce heat while particularly while working.
This happens too when the updated powered software is being used.
It is therefore necessary to keep your computer in a cool atmosphere and be sure not to cover the fan grills usually situated at the side of the computer, the bottom or the back.
Most times when the computer has been heated and you do not take these precautions, you run the risk of destroying the internal circuit board.
I know that most times we're tempted to trace words on the screen with our hands; I'm also guilty of this.
I did that a lot not realizing that I was damaging the screen, I was also having a lot of fun watching my fingers create waves on the screen and I didn't realize that the LCD displays were quite delicate devices and must be properly maintained.
Also clean it carefully with materials meant for cleaning computer screens only, using a random piece of cloth might do more harm than good.
In summary, handle the screen like you would handle an egg because that's how fragile it is.
It's very normal for you drink some water or juice while working, which is the very big mistake we all do.
Take care not to spill water or juice on your system while working as any form of spill could cause an irreversible damage to your laptop computer. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California's press secretary Margarita Thompson was recently robbed; her laptop was stolen and believe me the aftermath wasn't pleasant. A fascinating device is a mini radio transmitter that activates an alarm when a laptop is moved more than 10-20 feet away from a receiver kept in your bag, pocket or wallet. A stolen laptop can be easily traced with the help of a software code used for tracking.

The motion detector is a perfect means to secure your laptop. The detector or alarm goes off if the laptop is touched or moved by anyone besides you. Devising such method will deter a thief from stealing your laptop.

An alarm is bound to attract hundreds and thousands of people who carelessly leave their laptops in an unknown place.
This is another perfect way to secure a laptop. People have been able to retrieve their stolen laptops with the help of a tracking device. This software is usually installed inside the computer’s hard drive. The laptops can be traced when a cyber-work on the computer is connected with the internet; it furtively informs the owner of its locationAnother means of tracing a stolen laptop is by using Computer trace Personal. It offers a related service within a three year contract. They pay a maximum of $1000 if your notebook computer is not retrieved within thirty days.
