5. Never open laptop’s body parts if you aren’t an expert

I often notice, that people mostly try to open the laptop’s body part by themselves. Remember if you are not an expert then never ever try to do this because the wrong thing done by you can cause a huge damage to your laptop. Better then this you should consult the service centers.

 

6. Never use hair drier similar equipment to dry laptop

Most of the times in nervousness people use hair drier or other drying equipment to dry up the laptop.

    Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
