    I have a friend who lives near to the sea. He has used 7 motherboards for the past 7 years, and yesterday he changed it and bought the 8th one. He says his motherboards normally get damaged by the SALTY OCEAN WIND. My question is, how to protect Motherboards from this kind of situation? Is there any sticker or something we can paste to the MotherBoard? Please help

    Thank you

    I find it hard to believe that "salty wind" is your friend's problem unless the friend has waves in their house. I lived directly across the street from the Atlantic ocean for more than 20 years and never had a problem with my computers or other electronics from "salty wind".

    If "salty wind" were a big problem with electronic equipment in the U.S. people who live near the oceans on both coasts and the Gulf of Mexico would have massive problems.

    Post a picture of both sides of the damaged motherboard. Also, where is your friend specifically located?

    Thanks for the reply. I need two days to post the picture, because I only meet him in the university.
