Maintaining Your Computer

For the most part, there is little you need to do to maintain your computer system. However, as for any machine, there are a few things you can do that will help your computer last longer and operate smoothly.

Cleaning Your Mouse

As your roll your mouse around over a mouse pad, it picks up lint and dust particles that eventually clog the little wheels and rollers inside. If you notice the mouse beginning to operate erratically, check the user manual for how to remove the roller ball. You can then clean the ball with a soft dry cloth and wipe the three sets of rollers inside the mouse. Normally, when a mouse is dirty, the rollers will be coated with a gunk that can be wiped off with a cloth, or scraped off using your fingernail.
