Is there any maintenance we should perform on the computer?

TSC recommends the following maintenance schedule based on the computer at the site:

  • HP/Compaq running Windows XP:  Restart the computer once a month. We recommend running the Disk Defragmenter tool once a month. It is located in the CC folder on the desktop and will automatically defrag both the C and the D drives. This should be done during off-peak hours. We also recommend cleaning out the computer twice a year. Shut down the computer and unplug the power cord. Remove the cover from the system. Use a can of compressed air and blow off the dust and dirt from the cooling fans for both the motherboard and the CPU. Blow off the motherboard as well. Replace the cover, plug the power cord back in and reboot the system. This task needs to be performed by a qualified technician.

  • HP running Windows 7: Restart the computer once a month. The Disk Defragmenter tool will automatically run during off-peak hours. There is no need to run the tool manually. We also recommend cleaning out the computer twice a year. Shut down the computer and unplug the power cord. Remove the cover from the system. Use a can of compressed air and blow off the dust and dirt from the cooling fans for both the motherboard and the CPU. Blow off the motherboard as well. Replace the cover, plug the power cord back in and reboot the system. This task needs to be performed by a qualified technician.

  • Everest platform running Windows 7: Restart the computer once a month. This system uses a solid state hard drive and does not require disk defragmentation. Since this computer is fanless and ventless, there is no need to open the case.
