How to Clean a Dell Inspiron Screen

By Kurt Erickson

Restoring the crystal-clear display of your Dell Inspiron laptop screen is a function of using the proper cleaning method and products that won't damage or dull the screen. The screen is not like a window, so commercial window cleaners containing ammonia are not acceptable to use. Nor should abrasive materials be used to wipe down the screen.

Step 1

Shut down the computer and disconnect the power cord and battery.

Step 2

Gently wipe the screen with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust and other buildup. Do not use paper towels, which can scratch the display.

Step 3

If marks remain on the screen, mix one part isopropryl alcohol with one part water to make a cleaning solution. Slightly dampen a cloth and gently wipe the cloth down the monitor screen, starting from the top.

Allow the Dell Inspiron screen to dry fully before closing the laptop or using the computer.
