The keyboard it quite literally the most important part of your computer system. Without it your computer is of no use at all! But then this could be another case of the chicken or the egg? Regardless, it is poignantly clear that the QWERTY keyboard is an essential for your computer use and without it; you’ll be in big trouble!
The trouble is, the keyboard is so easily damaged and often the most commonly replaced piece of computer hardware! Have you spilled one too many crumbs over your keyboard? Worse still did you spill your morning coffee over it and now the keys keep getting stuck? Keyboard failure is a common complaint and you can be sure that 99% of the time the keyboards lack of response will be due to your own misuse! They say live and learn, well maybe it’s high time you learn and maybe it’s also time I stop being hypocritical and learn for myself! Invest in a new keyboard and treat it right!
You’ll wear the keys out faster if you hit them hard; don’t keep pressing a key over and over if it’s not working, this will simply make it worse. The chances are the key has something lodged underneath. Poise yourself and take a look; it could be repairable!
Keep all food and drinks away from your computer! If you accidentally spill your drink, it could cause your keyboard to fail which is more often than not, irreparable! Worse still and much more costly, it could ruin your entire computer. When it comes to food, this is simply a no go I’m afraid! Crumbs from your food could fall into the keyboard and cause your keys to jam and get stuck, this is unbelievably common. Either eat somewhere else, or cover over your keyboard!
Consider the germs and bacterial that builds up from constant use! Use keyboard cleaning cloths to keep the keys clean, and ensure that you use an air duster to get between the keys. Please note, always switch of your computer at the mains prior to cleaning!
