I've dusted my computer several times without any problems with a lil vacuum and I never had a problem after, but this this i decided to use one of those air cans and sprayed the computer and then vacuumed it. And then on my video card I noticed this pink spot with black greasy stuff on it, which I just lightly wiped off with my finger without pressing on it too hard. Afer putting everything back together and turning on the computer it Windows XP loading screen loads for a very long time and a lot of the programs including my playing songs struggle to play smooth.
What could the problem be? Is it the greasy stuff I took of my video card?
