Chassis & 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. Now gather your tools.

Compressed air and  vacuum cleaners are the basic tools use to rid the chassis (case) of dust.  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. After that 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 shut the computer off (if on) and turn it upside down letting the liquid drain. Place it where there’s pretty good ventilation. Don’t shake it causing the liquid to spread throughout and pending on the amount of the spill I wouldn’t use for a least one day.

      That’s for sure David, motherboards are not cheap. Sometimes the greatest lessons are learned through mistakes. I’ve made mine believe me.
