In this video Dave Andrews talks about common laptop problems.
One of the most common laptop problems is overheating. Modern laptops do a lot more
Processing than in the past and that means more heat is generated. Be sure to set
your laptop on a smooth surface, not on cloth that could get caught up in the
vents on the bottom of the laptop and prevent air from circulating.
Another common problem with laptops is the battery. When you purchase a new laptop
you get three or four years of use out of the battery. Dave shows you how to determine
if the laptop's battery is good and how to remove and replace the laptop's battery.
Another common problem with laptops is the screen. An LCD screen is fragile. Don't
put pressure on the screen because that could damage the screen. If you damage a
laptop's screen, for repair you can only take it to the manufacturer or a laptop
repair man, and that will be very costly.
