Laptop and PC Service Options

Depending on the environment that your machine is stored and used in, will depend on how frequently you need to have your machine serviced.  A machine which is always used in a very clean office environment with no airborne dust will probably need servicing around every three years, but a machine operating in a nightclub or workshop where there is a great amount of dust an fumes is likely to need servicing every six months.

Dust and debris enter a PC or Laptop will stick to the internal components and prevent proper cooling, in most cases this will enter through the cooling canals and cool fans and then stick to the heat sinks and radiators, which are the key items needing good cooling. In some extreme cases the dust build-up can prevent fans from rotating and further reduce the ability for the equipment to stay cool.  If the machine heats up then it will become inefficient, slow and very unstable, causing frequent crashing and blue-screens. Most modern computers will turn themselves off if they get too hot and these unexpected shutdowns can cause loss of data and even corruption to your files or operating system, leading to expensive software problems.
