Now laptops can get dirty too, and I have a quick tip on how to clean them. Now when dirt, dust and hair get on the motherboard or inside the fan, this can cause your laptop to overheat, which can damage the components inside costing much more money than you want to spend. An unusually hot base, or hot air coming out of the outlets, or the computer just randomly shutting off, these are all signs of your laptop overheating. And, it's also a sign that it's time to clean your laptop. Now, if you're not computer hardware literate, then I suggest you taking it to a professional and having them clean the inside components. Otherwise, listen up and I'll tell you how to clean your laptop. First, you're going to want to unplug your laptop, and then take out the battery. Simply, just use a soft damp cloth to wipe the outside of your laptop. If there are any spots that won't just come off with the cloth, I suggest using rubbing alcohol. Do not use any household cleaning products. I would use a cotton swab to clean any of the openings in the computer or compressed air in a can to get any of the dust, hair and dirt. Personally, I prefer to use a laptop cleaning kit, which you can find at any store that sells computers. This is because it tends to use less lint and you can clean the outside and inside fairly quickly, and it doesn't leave any more spots. Once again, if you don't feel a computer literate, just take it to a pro and let them deal with it, because they usually insure you. So, if they do anything to harm your computer, they'll replace it.
