How to clean different parts of computers ??
We are living in a different age. Twenty-five years ago people didnít have computers in their homes. Now just about everyone you talk to has a computer. In many homes people spend more time on their computer than they do watching television. That is one reason the machinery gets dirty so fast. Another reason is the equipment pulls dust toward it by static attraction. You will find lint, smoke, paper dust, perspiration, hair, and dirt from your fingers around, in, and on a computer.
The best way to clean a computer is to work from the screen and housing to the keyboard. Donít try to clean the inside of a computer by taking it apart. Stick with cleaning the external area. Only technicians should handle the inner workings.
The first part that you should clean is the computer housing and screen. If you have a vacuum with a soft brush attachment, sweep the computer housing and monitor. If you donít have one, you might want to go to the computer store
and buy a tiny mini-vac that is made just for this purpose. If your screen and housing are so dirty that they need to be dampened, go to the computer store and buy a special formula you can get, or an alcohol based spray. Some people make their own solution and use a damp cloth, but it might not be safe. If you have spots or smudges, try Denatured alcohol to remove them. You will need to clean the printer the same way, but make sure you remove the paper first.
Dust and vacuum the keyboard, nosing it gently but firmly around the key area. If you find lint or dust that wonít come up, buy a can of compressed air. This doesnít cost very much and it works really well. If a wet cleaning is needed, buy pre-moistened towelettes that are made just for this at the computer supply store. Once the dirt is loosened, take a cotton swab and go along the keyboard by each crack. As soon as one gets damp and dirty, throw it away and get a clean one.
To clean computer discs, you can also buy a solution that you spray on and wipe the disc with. This will keep it working like new and prevent scratching or wear and tear on the disc.
You can also go to the computer store and buy a computer cleaning kit. It comes with everything you need. Remember, a computer costs a lot of money and you want to keep it running well as long as you can. Dust your computer every few days and donít let it get very dirty before you clean it. This will make it a lot easier and quicker to clean. Donít set your computer by a heating vent because this will cause your computer to get dusty sooner.
If you spill anything into the computer, call a technician for help. Computers are touchy machines that must be dusted and cleaned frequently to keep them working effectively.

The first thing to remember while cleaning your computer, desktop computer, laptop or any component of the computer is to ensure that it is properly turned off. The cotton swabs can be used to clean those areas on the keyboard and the mouse which are not that easily accessible. You should clean all the keys on your computer keyboard with the help of cotton buds to which the fluid used for cleaning is already applied. You can lift the keyboard and turn it upside down so that all the dirt collected in the minute parts will fall down. A useful way of cleaning the computer is to blow air on the various components. Cleaning of the case of your computer is extremely important as not doing so can cause a lot of dirt accumulation on the processor of your computer. This cleaning should be done by completely removing the cover of the case of the computer.

- To clean the computer parts :-
- Always power off the system first
- Always use anti-static wristband or other professional grounding devices
- Never work on carpeted surfaces
- Never spray cleaning fluids directly onto computer components. Always spray the cleaner onto a cloth then wipe
- Do not allow any cleaner to run or drip near circuit boards, or near seams on device casings.
- Never allow circuits or electronics to become damp or wet.
- Some cleaning solvents can damage components. In most cases, water will work just as well.
- Cleaning electronics and circuit boards requires experience, knowledge and special electronics cleaners. This type of cleaning is best left to professionals.

From dusty computer fans to fingerprints on compact discs, computer components and devices can get awfully dirty normal everyday use or when not in use. The best way to get a computer component is purified to make a professional, but if you do not have a guarantee of service, or if you took a position as second hand and want to clean it see if it works.
