Laptops today compared to just few years ago are used so frequently that they can be susceptible to damage or an unfortunate accident. If you are a student, gamer or someone who is not particularly on the laptop often, here are some emergency tips to minimise further damage to your laptop if an undesirable event has occurred.
Loose Keyboard Tiles
A keyboard is the next most delicate part of your laptop after the screen, whether we are talking about a laptop keyboard or, you are using a standard, mechanical or ergonomic keyboards. If you find a few keys have gotten loose and even fallen off, this can be fixed without the help of a computer technician.
The first way is to check if the keycap of the fallen tile is still intact. If it is, you can reattach the tile by pressing down on it. If the key, its cap, or its retainer is broken you can purchase any of these items from many online stores. There is a space where the key retainer goes and can be inserted with a pair of tweezers. Simply be gentle when removing the keys.
In some cases, the circuit board may be damaged and then the key will not register on the laptop screen even when you are applying pressure and pushing it down with force. Visit a computer technician as they can evaluate and let you know whether the whole keyboard or the circuit board needs to be repaired or replaced. Living in Brisbane Australia?

Spilt Liquid is Worse
Liquid spilt on the laptop can cause tremendous damage to the circuit board and other components that makes a laptop computer work. While many people’s first instinct may be to absorb the spilt liquid, the first thing to do is to turn the laptop upside down to prevent the liquid from seeping into the internal body of the device. While doing so, immediately disconnect it from any power cords so the laptop does not shock you.
A common misconception with liquid spilt on phones, tablets, and laptops is to immerse it in a bowl of rice or any such material that attracts moisture to itself. Do not attempt such procedures for laptops that have liquid damage. The best option is to contact your local laptop computer technician as soon as possible.

Solving Faulty Laptop Hard Drives
An internal hard drive can get damaged in a number of ways and this can result in the computer shutting off suddenly, getting extremely slowed down, not following instructions, and existing saved data may also go missing or become unreadable by the drive.
If noise is being emitted by the laptop, files are getting corrupted and the device is slow and laggy, then upgrading to an SSD (Solid State Drive) is a recommended course of action. SSD employ flash memory and are generally considered to be more efficient in processing and storing data.
