If the monitor displays the same image for a while then there is phosphorus that burns continuously. This can result in problematic monitor the picture becomes dim / less clear. Another case if your monitor is LCD, LED fully equipped with energy saving, the screen saver is not needed anymore. How to activate the screensaver can be done in many ways, one click Start> Control Panel> Display> Screensaver tab, then select to suit your taste.
3. Adequate ventilation the monitor and CPU in such a way that the ventilation air and from the monitor / CPU quite smoothly. Who lack good ventilation will cause excessive heat so that the component / electronic circuits inside will be a fast heat so that it can shorten the life of the component page. Therefore, try to distance between the monitor / CPU with a wall / wall of at least 30 cm. If you need to plug the fan in the room.

4. Use UPS or UPS stavolt to anticipate the power failure is a sudden can cause damage to the hard drive. If I have no UPS, use Stavolt to anticipate the rise and fall of electrical voltage.

5. Close / close programs useless Each program you run or load requires memory (RAM) so that more programs that run who consumed more memory. This is in addition can cause the computer to run slow (slow) also gets heavier workload would actually be able to shorten the life of the component / computer.

6. Install an antivirus program and update regularly to be able to recognize the new virus/trojan2 should regularly update your antivirus program. The virus already spreading in the computer who can make you re-install the computer. This is in addition to costs will also cause your hard drive will be more easily damaged than if it is not often re-installed.

10. Clean the motherboard and other peripherals from the dust on a regular basis at least six months this should be done. Open the casing first and then clean the motherboard and other peripherals (RAM, Video Card, Modem, Sound Card, CDR / CDRW / DVRW, TV Tuner) with a soft brush. At the time the computer is not used close the computer (monitor, CPU, keyboard / mouse) with a cover so that dust does not easily fit into the computer.

11. Connect the ground wires. If the casing is shocked, take the cable with a length as needed, the tip of an entity connected with the CPU (the casing) while the other end planted in the soil. This will be able to neutralize the electric currents "stray" so as to make it more durable electronic components. (Taken from various sources)
