    Arrow Effect of Humidity on PC Components ?

    Many electronic devices have humidity specifications, for example, 5 to 95%. In a high humidity environment, condensation is prevalent which can have a negative impact on electronic devices. In a low humidity environment, electrostatic discharge occurs more readily, which also has a negative impact on electronics.

    I've heard due to the Atmospheric humidity, computer monitors may appear to be blurred till they reach optimum temperature. Is that true ?

    How will humidity affect other PC Components ?

    What are the precautions to be taken ?

    Monitors do appear blurred initially when Humidity is very high, Consider when you boot computer for the 1st time on a Humid day.

    i've lived at places wid real high humidity and rainz... and never ever been affected by these things! i've always laughed at people who are so paranoid abt this (unless of corz the humidity is extremely high...) and also at people who 'remove their shoes' to enter a 'computer room'!!!!

    don't worry abt it... the degradation of life is neglible unless of corz the humidity is intolerable!

    Yeah rite removing shoes to enter a computer room is worst...[]
    But the Monitor thing do happens for me, but its okay within a minute or 2, so not a concern at all.

    regarding that.. tho i've never experienced it at all in all these years, i think some basic things can iron the problem out.

    when u switch on a computer for the first time on a humid day, put on the fan (avoid the air conditioner!) for sometime and then observe whether the same happens.

    Ahem..
    When I sit in my room, with cooler switched on and I work on my PC, some small droplets of water appear on the VDU. But this has not in any way degraded my monitor. Its its () 7th year and its going strong.

    well humidity had taken away my moniter last year (August).............and even now for a few days i was using another old monitor, and i used to see a blurry screen until the monitor temperature increased. so i can say this with experience.

    and this year, the humidity has taken away from me my AGP 6200 graphics card and a 256 mb ram module........aah my sad story....
