computer repair long islandIf you’re like most of us, your laptop is one of the most important things you own – especially if you use it for work. When you need a computer repair, it can bring your life to a complete halt. If you do need a quick, inexpensive fix, call Gadget Rx at 516-379-7979 – we know computer issues are all-too-common, and we offer professional solutions at a great rate.

But there are some preventative measures you can take to be sure your laptop stays in working order. Keep these essential tips in mind to avoid common issues.

1. Remove dust and debris. Dust and other debris accumulating on your keyboard can get into your computer’s vents, causing issues in how your laptop operates. Be sure to clean it regularly.

2. Keep it cool. Overheating is a major problem that can cause a complete melt-down of your hard drive. To prevent overheating, keep your laptop in a cool place and avoid storing it in excessive heat (like your car).

3. Avoid graphic-intense programs. Unless your computer is specifically made for gaming, watching movies or playing games constantly can heat up the graphic chip, which can eventually detach. If you want to use your laptop for gaming, invest in a laptop that’s created for it.

Tips like these will help your computer stay running up to speed as best as possible. If you need a fix, call Gadget Rx at 516-379-7979 today.
