A technician is performing hardware maintenance of PCs at a construction site. What task should the technician perform as part of a preventive maintenance plan?
- Remove dust from intake fans.
- Back up the data, reformat the hard drive, and reinstall the data.
- Develop and install forensic tracking software.
- Perform an audit of all software that is installed.
Construction sites are normally very dusty environments. The accumulation of dust in a PC can lead to failure of various components. There is a high risk of overheating due to cooling fans failing because of excessive dust buildup. The technician should ensure that all dust is removed from the intake fans as part of the maintenance process.
