Is it good to switch on desktop computer in rainy weather or even after heavy rain ?
This is not regarding lightning.
Concern is of high humidity levels.
If humidity level in room is high, can it damage the mother board or any other device inside computer when switched on, due to moisture on the circuit boards ?
Can moisture condensing on the fan blades (cpu fan & case fan. also if graphics card has fan) throw tiny water droplets on mother board cause any short when fan starts ?
Is this a concern ?
What do u guys do ?
(anyone holding a hair drier on computer before starting in wet weather ?
well how high is the humidity. is a question.
I did not check with a scientific humidity meter.
Checked with a wall clock and a desk top clock that indicate humidity and showed 90% in the past few days. Normally they show about 80% and when taken to a place with A/C show about 70%. But not sure if these readings are accurate. Found it close to what is given in the weather reports for SL.
