Go Up Go Down

My computer had been getting very hot lately and noisy. So i took the cover off last night had a spare cooling fan but the wrong one,I had replaced the fan last year anyways i took it off to see the fan and grill that it keeps cool covered in dust i mean covered real bad.Having taken this out i also noticed the 4 screws that hold it in were also very loose,no problem tighten them up. I then took the vacum and sucked out all the dust on the fan and grill and the power box was also plugged up,,,I then used the vacum on the board it was dusty has well...Now the last time i cleaned it out was a year ago,,they say to do this every 6 months.       
Well i am happy say that i just stuck my hand on the back of the tower and it is pushing cold air again not hot air,,,And the performance while surfing again is super fast,,it really started to slow down the last week are so and even worst last night with freezeups 


So if you want to check this out just stick your hand behind the tower where your power box fan is if it is pushing really hot air chances are you need to open the side and have a look and if you are computer savy you can check the tempature   by going to your bios board mine is looking good now               
Also if you are unsure of doing this yourself get someone who knows how   
A slow pc may be fixed with a simple little clean

It is a simple fix to clean those systems.  I usually do all the upkeep and cleaning of my home network.  Doesn't take too long to dust them things out and you sure do notice an improvement.

That's what happened to my computer.
 I had all the junk files and viruses taken out. It is a good as new.
 He also cleaned out the insides and replaced the wifi chip because it was overheating and not working.
 I guess we don't think about cleaning them out until they start slowing down and messing up.
 My comp would freeze when the insides overheated.

  Free AVG and run CC-Cleaner once a month or so.  No issues last 15 years with Viruses .  Some Adware gets in but easy to loose.

On windows machines with the forced air cooling I do a vacuum usually once a year.,

Mine sits near the floor in a room with a dog and a cat.  Hair, dust, and god-knows-what gets sucked in.

I open it up every couple of months, but I don't vacuum... I use a can of compressed air.  Works very well indeed, better than just vacuuming.

Yes, it’s the best medicine for the "biscuit crumbs disease"
But make sure you don’t get the “coffee two sugars” strain that may kill your k/b
