Your laptop may be virus free with the latest hardware and software upgrades, but if your computer’s screen is damaged, it won’t really matter. A broken screen is similar to an otherwise fit runner being kept out of a race because of a blister on his foot.
Prevention Is The Best Medicine
Your laptop’s screen is quite sensitive and can be damaged from only a modest amount of pressure. Screens can be damaged in a variety of ways, but with a bit of care, they are all preventable. As usual here at Jim’s, we don’t want your business unless necessary, so we are pleased to offer tips on how to keep your computer’s screen in tip-top condition:
The most common way screens break are by being dropped. Treat your laptop with care; transport it only in a padded case and carry it in a bag. Do not carry it under your arm or as part of a stack of books and papers. Even if it’s closed, your laptop screen can break if dropped hard enough.
Also, make sure there is nothing on your keyboard before you close your laptop. Something as light as earbuds can cause damage to your screen. Pens, pencils, even mobile phones are things that are routinely left on keyboards that will cause screen damage.
Lastly, do not touch your screen, either. Unless it’s a touchscreen, your laptop’s screen was not designed to be poked.

It’s important not leave screens damaged for too long. A damaged screen left untreated can lead to other problems when dust, moisture, and other elements creep inside.
