I make it a policy of not having any food or drink
items by my computer, bad things happen no matter how carefull you are!
Also never put a desktop on carpet, if it needs to be on the floor, get a static
free mat from wallmart to put down so the tower is not directly on the
flor! If you smoke, do not do it around your computer, it will suffer a
painful deaf in it's short life spand! Please do not put your tower in a
inclosed space, it tends to not ventilate and it will make the fan runn more
because of the heat! Heather

You know what? I'm leaving them alone period, even if it
doesn't work. I got
this one for $14.99 at Office Max, so that is what I'd
do before I'd think
of trying to take it apart and clean it. Now if my
husband wanted to take
that on, I'd say go for it, but as for me, I'm not
tearing into a keyboard.

[TechTalk] tech problems galore!
I'll modify what I said in my first
message and change my opinion somewhat.
I don't know enough about
fans to know what maintenance regarding them may
be advisable. I
would think it would depend in part on the environment the
in. Is the computer on the floor or on a table? Is the floor
table clean? Is it near a window that is often opened or not?
certain considerations of the sort might apply to keyboareds, such as
they near an open window often, and I may have overlooked
considerations in my answer, my view is that it's probably better not
clean a keyboard internally unless it starts exhibiting behavior
it is a good idea. Fans and free ventalation of the
computer may be another
Also, to further refine and
alter my last message, it might depend on
whether someone has had
experience cleaning keyboards internally. I doubt
that most users
have any experience of doing so and so I say, leave the
internally if it works.

Re: [TechTalk] tech problems galore!
Trust me, I'm guilty of it myself.
I try to fix things, but yeah. If it's an
expert problem, I need an expert
to fix it. And cleaning the pc may have
made my old Dell last me longer,
but dedusting fans to me sounded like a
pain in the
