Taking care of your computer ... lessons for beginners...
First the screen ....
The screen is a sensitive piece of hardware and needs to be properly cared for. The monitor is made up of tiny elements called 'pixels'.
These pixels are very delicate. Be careful when moving your screen that the monitor stays upright. If it is placed down in another position the pixels
can fall out of place and build up on the bottom of the screen.
This can also happen whenever a sharp knock to the screen occurs. The pixels buildup along the task bar in small untidy piles and the screen looses
its brightness with black holes appearing in serious cases.
How to refresh your monitor...
When you find that you are losing pixels purchase a bottle of replacement pixels from any computer store. Pour the new pixels into the monitor through
the holes in the top of the monitor.
Sometimes your monitor may develop a ëresource leakí where pixels of a certain type may begin to leak out of the display and stain the monitor body
itself. This is most common with orange pixels as they are the smallest and most slippery of the colors. It is best to keep a bottle of orange pixels
on hand for refilling your machine on a monthly basis.
Images and your monitor
Viewing webpages on your computer can wear out your monitor faster than viewing normal text based pages. This occurs because the pictures used are
often ëpixel heavyí and weight more than normal pictures.
Sometimes you will find that the picture has been replaced by a white square with a red X in it. The picture may fall off the page because of its
weight, or because itís a new picture and not concreted into the code correctly. If too many pictures fall off a webpage at once your web browser may
crash because of the combined weight of pixels. This happens frequently with Microsoftís Internet Explorer.
