From time to time I repair computer. Sometimes it is just software problems, sometimes- hardware. But some times it is dust problems. Dust full computer appears on my workbench very often, but I don’t have my digital camera nearby to take a picture. Sometimes I open computer cases at client’s home and I don’t want to take pictures…
But here is few pictures of real computer I repaired and short description of the problem:
This computer “was running quite fine, only few sudden reboots in a day”. 🙂 But when weather temperature raised because it is summer now, computer’s reboot become irritating and owner brought it to me.
This video card was working fine. No reboots or freezes. But how much dust it need to collect to stall GPU fan?
This Athlon sometimes freezes the computer. Especially when encoding video. Do you know why?
This video card (Radeon X800) was big secret for owner. He can’t start video games. Few months ago all games were working fine, but after some time he could not start any game. In “2D” mode, you can use computer for weeks! We tried newest video card drivers, chipset patches, even reinstalled windows few times… I only removed dust clog and everything is working.
