Preventive Maintenance

The average PC user doesn't think much about problems that can occur with a computer until the problem actually occurs. Once a failure happens, the repairs can be costly and time-consuming.

Human error and the operating environment can cause a computer to malfunction.

Factors can include:

  • excessive build up of dust
  • heat
  • magnetism
  • viruses
  • static-electricity shocks
  • power surges
  • carelessness - dropping equipment
  • incorrect configuration.

Taking time to prevent faults developing will reduce the amount of time lost by the users while you are rectifying the faults.
