Have you ever cleaned your computer? No, I don’t mean wiping off the display screen; I mean cleaning out all the vents and the inside of your computer case of all dust that’s accumulated. The dust that accumulates over time in the vents, blowers and other components inside your computer case can cause the cooling systems built into computers to fail and overheat the PC. Overheating will cause the components that make up your PC to operate improperly or to fail altogether. Premature fatiguing of those highly sensitive components will cause your computer to wear out sooner too.
Microsoft at home.com has an article on how to clean your computer this month that provides step by step instructions on how to safely clean your computer. You might want to give them a look.
Be very careful…it’s dangerous out there.
