How to extend my lappie, Sappy life? It's a HP....

Oh well, as you can see from my title, I'm very concerned with my Sappy's health- don't get me wrong, Sappy is my laptop which my sister bought for me in March 2008. And it's getting older and slower! I think I'm good at protecting her from any external forces, however it constantly appear some error messages when I start my window! It sucks and I tried vacuum the machine and made the fan moves efficiently!

As a result, it works! It starts up normally and I can see my Serena! I hate to dump my Sappy because I love her so much! She accompanies me in my entire 31/2 in the states and never abandon me while I always have her on all night to write my term papers! Everytime when I imagine that her life is over, I don't know what will I react. I'll be heartbreaking ba! Probably mourn for her leaving! OMG, I tend to research a lot online on how to extend her life especially a HP! I've to say HP laptop is more vulnerable and problematic compared to other brands. I think the fan inside my Sappy is super small and useless after years of usage.

So I'm doing all my best to save Sappy from dying! Firstly, I dimmed my screen at all time to save her energy and also improved its cooling! And I also use a external cooling pad which I bought ( a taiwanese brand named Thermal master) which is practicable in cooling it I guess, and the worst part-- I reside in Malaysia! Hot weather, huh?~! Remember to Keep it cool, k?

Another mark is that you've to back up your data! I've tons of music, photos, important doc in Sappy which I can't afford losing them! There're memories which you can't buy!So it's great to have an external hard drive by your side and they're inexpensive too!

And I also realize that hibernating your lappie is not a good thing to do! It wastes resources and just save you about 3-5 minutes to start your lappie. But it actually did not shut your computer off! So it's going to be making your lappie sleep without closing their eyes? Isn't that you're racking your lappie?
Man, shut it off! Preserve the energy, so you can use more aircon! LOL

Phew, and another bonus tip will be lowering your graphics use or screen resolution! And make sure you defrag your lappie continuously! I use Advance system care free and its so efficatious! you'll  love it! and it got lots of other function! I've my pal, Ethan who installed it for me while I updated my system years ago!
A brand new HP!

My SAPPY( still in a good condition with my hk stickers on it! isn't it cute n  girly?)
Of course, you gonna make sure you protect your lappie from any other hazards and go easy with your computer demands! Don't switch it on for long hours and play games non-stop! You gonna love her and treat her humanly! I always maintain the cleanliness of my lappie by putting a protective coatings on top  of the keyboard!!It prevents crumbs/dust accumulate the keyboard~ I hate sticky keyboard on public computer! No one cares about the hygiene issue! If I'm typing my essays, and my face gets itchy.... ( scenario- the person who used the comp before me was eating ice cream and the residue from hsi mouth somehow dripped down on the keyboard)- ewwww!!! So cleanliness should be everyone priority if you're a responsible user!

OK la, my best advice is don't always bring your lovey around! Keep them stable and don't shake them on no reason! If you insist to take her out for a walk, use a hard and good quality case to store them! Make sure you store them well, not in a garish way la! Many bag snatchers in the country- they're the worst! And don't drink water near them la! They don't drink! LOLxx
I know people will just say "Go buy a new one la, dud! It's time for a new lappie since you already used it for a long itme!" But there's something money can't compensate! I've feeling with her~ my dear Sappy.(I know there'll be someone agree with me, haha)

I'll end my post here! I'll take good care of my Sappy, how about you?
