Cleaning the Mouse:

Step 1: Disconnect the mouse cable from the computer case.

Step 2: Lightly dampen a cleaning cloth with isopropyl alcohol, and use it to wipe down the exterior of the computer mouse and mouse pad.

Step 3: Remove the mouse’s bottom cover by turning it over, following the directional arrows indicating the removal direction. Press in the arrow direction, turn the mouse right side up, and let the cover and mouse ball drop into your hand.

Step 4: Clean the mouse ball with a lint-free cloth dampened with isopropyl alcohol and set it aside.

Step 5: Use a swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol to clean between, around, and on top of the keys. Change swabs as needed.

Step 6: Replace the mouse ball and cover.

Step 7: Wipe the mouse cord with a cleaning cloth lightly dampened with a mild soap solution. Gently pull the cord through the cloth.

Step 8: Plug the mouse back into the computer.

 

Cleaning Your Monitor:

Step 1: Unplug the power supply cord and cable from the monitor, allowing it to cool for at least 20 minutes.

Step 2: Vacuum the monitor’s exterior, paying attention to cooling grooves, holes, or slots. Use compressed air at an angle to remove dust without letting debris fall into ventilation holes.

Step 3: Lightly dampen a cloth with a mild soap solution and wipe down the monitor’s plastic parts.

Step 4: Clean the monitor cables and power cord while disconnected. Gently pull them through a cloth dampened with mild soap solution.

Step 5: Check the monitor for anti-glare or delicate coatings. Follow manufacturer instructions for cleaning. If no special coatings, use a lint-free cloth with window cleaner (sprayed on the cloth, not the screen).

Step 6: In dusty environments, use a computer dust cover to protect the monitor.

 

Cleaning a Keyboard:

Step 1: Disconnect the cable from the computer case.

Step 2: Use a vacuum cleaner to remove debris between keys or tap the keyboard upside down to dislodge debris.

Step 3: Use compressed air at a 30-45 degree angle between the keys to remove remaining dust. Alternately blow and tap until clean.

Step 4: Lightly dampen a cloth with a mild soap solution and wipe down the keyboard exterior. Avoid spraying directly onto the keyboard.

Step 5: Clean between, around, and on top of the keys with swabs dampened with isopropyl alcohol. Change swabs as needed.

Step 6: Wipe the keyboard cord with a cleaning cloth lightly dampened with mild soap solution. Dry the cord with a dry cloth.

Step 7: In dusty environments, use a keyboard cover for protection.

 

Charging a Laptop Battery:

Plug your laptop into the socket, and you can leave it there whenever possible. You can recharge your laptop’s battery whether it is fully drained or not. There is no need to fully drain your laptop’s lithium-ion battery every time you use it. Lithium-ion batteries have a rapid-charging option available either on a custom tab inside the Power Option dialog box or through special battery software.

 

Cleaning a DVD Drive:

Purchase a DVD laser cleaning kit, a single disc designed to spin in your drive and remove dust from the lens. Place the cleaning disc inside your DVD drive’s tray, close it, and let the CD spin to clear the lens of dust. As an extra precaution, open the drive’s disc tray and gently spray a can of air into it to remove any larger pieces of dust.
