Computer maintenance

  1. 1. By: Cashae An-Unique Vinson
  2. 2.  If you don’t properly maintain your computer regular you will begin the experience problems with the hardware. Example: hard disk starts to slow, problems with printer, keyboard and mouse may start acting sluggish, and monitor may act up
  3. 3.  Clean computer every 3-6 months.* if in a dust environment, clean computer more often
  4. 4.  Clean & Check keyboard periodically  Dirt, dust, hair, and food particles can be on or in- between the keys of the keyboard, causing the keys to jam or otherwise malfunction. When cleaning the keyboard it is best to use compressed air. Every 6 months you should use compressed air when cleaning the keyboard
  5. 5.  Cleaning mechanical mouse often eliminates jerking or erratic movement of the mouse pointer. To clean the rollers, you need to remove the bottom  You may find dirt, hair, or dust in the middle of the roller It is best if you remove as much as possible of those debris and then reassemble the
  6. 6.  Cleaning your printer helps the printer live longer Check the printer documentation  Turn off printer  Use a cleaner recommended by the manufacturer, or a lint- free cloth, and then moisten it with a 50-50% solution of water and vinegar.  Wring out all excess moisture  Thoroughly clean outside of the printer *Make sure NO fluids get inside the printer  NEVER spray an aerosol directly onto the printer Optional: Wear latex gloves to protect your hands from dirt and other debris.
  7. 7.  After so much use, small deposits of dry ink accumulate on the print head Eventually, these deposits begin to clog the printer’s ink jets and affects the print quality of the document (ex: streaks & blotchy printings) Dust and ink from inexpensive paper can affect the printer’s rollers  When cleaning the inkjet printer 1st turn it off and unplug it  Let it cool If necessary  Use a small vacuum to remove the debris  Use roller cleaning sheets to clean the print roller
  8. 8.  Should be cleaned when print deteriorates or when you change the toner cartridge When you open the printer Do NOT touch anything shiny, it may be hot or contain a charge Use these maintenance tasks:  Turn off printer & unplug printer (if warm let it cool & remove the paper trays and toners cartridge)  Use a printer or good paint brush and a lint-free cloth to clean inside the toner opening  Remove paper fragments  Use a clean cloth to wipe up any spilled toner and dust  Clean the roller, DO NOT touch the transfer (sponge) roller  Replace the toner cartridgeSome laser printer contain corona wires, DO NOT brush or vacuum these
  9. 9.  Eventually hardware components may be damaged and need to be changes, or output and production need to be increased. It can be enhanced by upgrading various elements within the computer system  Adding computer memory  Updating the keyboard  Updating the mouse
  10. 10.  A way to measure a computer’s power is by its capacity to remember. Hard drive can be compared to long-term memory and RAM (random access memory) is short-term memory. RAM is computer memory that is made up of small memory chips that form a memory module  The modules are installed in the RAM slots on the motherboard of your computer RAM is TEMPORARY! While the computer is processing data, it reads and write to RAM When RAM fills up the computer continually goes to the hard drive to replace old data in RAM with new data
