These are things which have suddenly now, become the most important thing in our lifestyle. Whether it is for a working professional or a student, everybody needs it in their day to day life. Laptops help to minimize our workload. It has multiple uses and we are used to it but we forget that it is an electronic device and can only go so far without proper care.
Prevention is better than cure. So maintenance of the laptop must be done regularly, whether it is working fine or not. Many people run to the repair center after their laptops stop working or are completely dead. Most of the time the laptop gets damaged because of a heating problem and that heat problem exists due to the internal dust and moisture in laptops. So it is a must to clean or service the laptop at least once in a year.
A maintenance/service includes cleaning and cooling, where they do a complete cleaning of your laptop as well as internal motherboard, laptop fan, and other small components. This is so that the hot air can freely flow and it will not heat up immediately. Second, it includes changing the cooling pastes and thermal cooling tape which helps to keep the laptop cool and efficient in multitasking.
Besides yearly maintenance, you can protect the laptop by purchasing a cooling table and place it under your laptop when it is being used. Also, when you use your laptop while it’s on a soft surface, like a bed cover or sofa, try using something with a hard surface under the laptop, like a large hardcover book or a tray.
This is some information for maintenance or servicing which increases the life of your laptop and keeps it healthy.
