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.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR LAPTOP COMPUTER
I once thought the best thing I could do for my laptop was to wipe off dust from the screen and my keyboard but I was totally wrong- taking care of the laptop takes more than that. I finally learnt that the hard way after I had to change my laptop computer at least three times in a year. Believe me that is not something you want to be doing. I wasn’t thrilled about having to change my computers so many times in a year, so I decided to find out how I could prolong the lifespan of my computer by taking good care of it. I was quite amazed at how simple the solutions to my problem were. I’m sure you’d like to know about these solutions, so sit back and read on while I share them with you.
AVOID DROPPING IT
Now this is the worst thing that could ever happen to your computer. Most times when it drops it only survives the crash by a thin hair. In fact your computer shouldn’t drop at all, that’s why a bag was made for it. You can always keep it in your bag or a case when you want to take it out or probably when you want to travel. Avoid placing your computer at the edge where it can easily fall off. A fall like that can put a permanent end to the computer and I’m sure you don’t want that. Make sure that the support underneath the laptop which is usually a rubber is well attached to the computer and it also checks if it hasn’t worn down. This rubber is a form of prevention; it stops the computer from slipping of any surface.
HAVE AN ANTI-VIRUS AS BACK UP
No matter how busy you might be, make sure you take out time to download an anti-virus on your system which is a form of security measure. And when you do download it, make sure you update it as often as possible. If you don’t, it is as good as not having at all. You run the risk of exposing your computer to thousands of viruses every day if you do not take the effort to update your anti-virus. You can always opt for anti-virus that has been programmed to update automatically, it will save you the trouble of updating often.
I know how annoying and irritating popups can be on the computer especially when you’re trying so hard to close loads of windows without using a usual mouse. The best and the most effective thing to do is to download a pop blocker like the Google tool bar which helps to prevent pop-ups ad.
UTILIZE A FIREWALL
Make sure you use the firewall on your internet. It helps to block out loopholes than enables hackers hack into your hard drive. I’m sure the solutions above will be of great help to you.
