We use it every day, and yet there are many things we don't know about computer maintenance. Here are all the things you should not do with your device.
Recently, we shared a few tips for your smartphone. This time, we're focusing on computers. Since we use them every day, they tend to deteriorate quickly, but there are a few tricks to prevent this. Here they are.
Don't charge your computer to the maximum
If you want to keep your computer running for a long time, avoid leaving it constantly plugged in. This will damage the battery, which will then have a very small capacity.
Do not open your device by holding it by the edge
Avoid opening your computer by placing your fingers on the edge of the device. Why is that? The screen is very fragile, and this can eventually damage the computer. Ideally, you should open it by placing your hand in the middle.
Do not put it on your lap
Come on, admit it, you do this as well? It's not uncommon to put a computer on one's lap. However, it is better to place it on a flat surface or on a laptop stand. Why is that? Placing it on your lap blocks the fans, and can cause the device to overheat.
Do not unplug the cables abruptly
Finally, there's no need to pull your cables out abruptly. This could damage and eventually break the various ports, such as the USB for example. So be careful!
