Default Dear Abbs..

pardon me, but I am a nonconformist..

Anywho......................

How can I be so stupid?
Remember when I couldn't boot my computer and got advice from friends that maybe it was an issue with the hard drive?

Well, guess what?
It was!
Only today when I downloaded a program from a friend to scan it, I found the temp was operating in the danger zone, thus overheating.

To fix it, he advised I take the back off the tower and look for dust.
Dust? In my pristine house? Never!


Ummm.. it was loaded with dust around the fan on the inside.. loaded.
Horrified, that's what I was.. and a tad embarrassed.
A screw driver, a little paint brush and a vacuum cleaner attachment vented on the handle for low suction fixed it.

The temp is now hovering in the 95-100 range.

The system recovery was all for naught, I suppose.
Lost some important stuff too.

Live and learn!

Signed,

Colour Me Stupid But Now Informed
