Most hardware manufacturers produce robust computers, but do not be deluded into thinking that your laptop will never break down. Keep in mind that it contains delicate parts and that there are a number of things that could go wrong with it.
The laptop screen is rather delicate and may break down.
The keyboard keys are used all the time and may get loose, or they may not react when being pressed.
The battery may pack up. Over time the battery life will get shorter until you reach a stage where you can only work while plugged into an electricity outlet.
The battery charger may stop functioning.
The different cables may break; sometimes the inside of the cable gets broken, which can not be detected by visual inspection.
The motherboard may fail.
The hard disk may crash.
The CD-ROM or DVD drive may malfunction.
Do you get the feeling that a laptop is a disaster waiting to happen? Don’t despair.
The problems listed here do not happen every day.
It is possible that you may never encounter any of these problems.
Many of these problems could be avoided with reasonable care.
All of these problems can be fixed.
Don’t focus on the things that could go wrong with your laptop – rather focus on the good things you can do with it.
If there are other things that you know of that could go wrong with a laptop, please leave a comment.
