The feeling of getting a new laptop is a great one. It’s sparkling clean, there’s not a document in sight and most importantly of all it’s free of any viruses and spyware. But just how do you keep your laptop in top condition?
Keeping the battery working well is one of the first steps to ensuring your laptop works like new,as incorrect laptop chargers and charging techniques can ruin your battery very quickly,meaning you are left with more of a desktop computer constantly having to be connected to those AC adapters for laptops.To keep your battery working well make sure you never let your laptop die,and as soon as the battery runs low,plug it into a dedicated AC adapter for laptops.However,equally important is not to let it run off mains all of the time,as this will also wear down your battery.Using laptop chargers in moderation is the key.
The next big thing that often ruins laptops is a virus. No matter how careful you think you are, they do not just come off dodgy websites and are very easy to get. The best way to avoid getting a nasty virus is to keep anti spyware and virus programs up to date, and run regular scans to ensure you are still free.
Next, simply keeping your laptop clean can help with that all new feeling. Investing in some proper screen wipes will make a lot of difference, and you may be surprised to find out just how dirty your laptop was in the first place.
Finally, keep check of all the programs and documents you create and download. If there isn’t a need for them, delete them and empty your recycling bin. Old, forgotten documents clog up many hard drives slowing down performance for all. If you keep on top of it, and your laptop will run like new for years.
