As a computer user, you should always do the following to ensure that your computer is working properly.

  1. Dust your computer properly every morning and avoid clustering of dust on the keyboard and screen your computer.
  2. To appropriately prevent clustering of dust on your computer, you can use dust cover to cover your desktop computer after each day’s use.

  6. Unplug your computer from the power source after each day’s use.
