Hardware Services Tips

  1. If you spill a liquid on your laptop, turn the unit upside down and remove the battery. DO NOT turn the computer on. Bring the unit in for service as soon as possible.
  2. Make sure you maintain a current backup of all of your important data. Hard disk drives and flash drives do not last forever.
