In the IT world, mobile phones and laptops are incredibly valuable as a means of always to keep you connected. Laptops are a big investment, and many of us prefer the device to last and serve as long as possible. Keeping your laptop updated and free from damage always comes at a great cost. However with the right tips, you can ensure your laptop stays healthy for many years and give you the best performance. There is some obvious advice to keep your laptop free from danger like not using it as a coaster for your coke. However, there are more helpful tricks that will make your laptop have a long lifespan and save you some unnecessary costs.

Treat it with Care
Dropping or bumping the laptop can cause damage to its hardware. The damage can sometimes be irreparable, or it can eventually lead to the laptop crashing. Handle it with care. Use two hands to hold the laptop and don’t hold it by the screen. Keep food and liquids away from it, and do not place it near other electrical appliances.

Always Keep it Cool
Heat is one of the main enemies of the CPU and graphics card. Your laptop generates heat while operating. When there is too much heat, the system slows down and can even fry the components in the laptop. Make sure you provide proper airflow to the laptop. Avoid placing it on pillows or your lap. Clean the built-in fans regularly to ensure they run smoothly and remove heat. You can also consider a cooling pad.

Keep it Covered and Clean
Apart from the heat, dust and dirt are the other enemies of the laptop components. Dust can jam up the gears and the moving parts and hamper its proper functioning. You can use canned air to dust it. Always keep
your laptop clean and keep it covered when not in use to prevent dust from getting into the inner parts. Dust can clog the fan and cause it not to remove heat, leading to a meltdown.

Maintain the Battery
Over time, the battery in your laptop can degrade. Do not keep your laptop on charge all the time as this can decrease battery life. Completely drain the battery charge at least once a month. Maintaining the battery will make the laptop last longer.

Keep it Updated
The constant updates are a lot of hustle, but they are necessary for system maintenance. The updates help to clean up and defragment the hard disk. The antivirus updates also ensure proper running of the software without interference from malicious programs.

If treated right, you can get many years of top performance from your laptop. Just follow these simple and easy-to-do tips. If you do end up toasting some hardware, make sure you have a good resource like
Contec Direct on hand that can help repair your circuit board.
