Motherboard and Keyboard
Tools: Compressed Air – Vacuum Cleaner – Screw Driver
First, always shutdown the computer prior to maintenance. Then, detach the power cord currently plugged into the power supply and cables, such as the mouse, Ethernet and Universal Serial Bus (USB). This makes it easier to maneuver the case as needed . Next, get a screw driver and remove the outer most screws. Finally, jiggle and lift or slide the panel and set it aside. Start cleaning!
Compressed air and vacuum cleaners are the basic tools use to rid dust inside the computer case. Everyone knows a typical vacuum is used to suck in dirt; but some have the capability to blow air. If your choice is the vacuum do NOT use metallic hoses. Reason being the inner components are very sensitive to electricity and a static discharge will take it down for good. Then you’re left with a very large paper weight.
Cleaning the keyboard is fairy easy to do. Start by detaching the keyboard from the computer. Purchase a can of compressed air and there’s many on the market. Use it to blow dust from the hard to reach places between the keys. Next, dampen a cloth or paper towel with rubbing alcohol and gently clean the surface of the keys.
Sometimes accidents do happen, so if you spill liquid on the keyboard detach it from the computer and turn it upside down allowing the liquid to drain. Don’t shake it causing the liquid to flow throughout and place it where there’s ventilation. Lastly, depending on the amount of the spill I would not use it for a least one day. Good luck.
