How to Clean the Inside of a Desktop Computer
One day, you turn on your computer. Maybe nothing happens, or maybe you get some error message about fan speed, or maybe you just get a “system halted” message. Then again, perhaps your computer works just fine, but it’s starting to sound like a jet engine because the fans are running at full blast!
At this point, you may be inclined to freak out. But don’t go there just yet…
There’s one thing most people don’t think about, and that is the fact that computers produce heat. Heat is bad for electronics, so the computer is cooled by heat sinks and fans. Fans and heat sinks get dirty, and eventually clogged. Oops!
With a few dollars and a bit of bravery, you can “dust” inside your computer even if you don’t know anything about how computers work.
If you can dust your house, you can dust your puter!
