- Check the connections and make sure all the plugs are snug in their connections. And make sure users are using surge protectors and backup (UPS) and not a string of extension cords to power their machines.
- Blow the dust and debris out of the System Units, Keyboards, monitors and mice. And make sure there is not dust accumulating on the back of the machine or wherever the air fan is located.
- Clean the System Units, Keyboards, Monitors, CD-ROM drives, Floppy drives and mice.
- Check the printers, clean and lubricate the printer gear mechanism with appropriate engineering oils and tools. Make sure the printers are producing clean copies and that the toner cartridge are not about to run out of toner .
- Update the Antivirus Software installed on each user’s machine if you make available the update software. Clean the Virus out of the System Unit with the latest Antivirus cleaner.
- Check the power source and make sure systems are plugged into protected outlets or power strips, if the systems are not plugged into UPS.
