Does dust make a computer spaz out, overheat the CPU, freeze the computer, then make my bedroom smell burnt?




Then when I tried turning it back on after 10 minutes the computer lights were going crazy and it would keep shutting down and starting up every whatever part of a second.


I opened up my case, removed a LOT of dust, found that a wire had been broken, so I 'fixed' it, I guess you could say, and it's working fine now.


I'm just glad my CPU didn't burn out again and force me to get another one!



Fluttershy is best pony.

Gotta keep your PC "blown out" with a can of compressed air periodically to avoid that. NEVER use a vacuumn or the likes to try and "suck" it out.

Amazon, Office Depot, Best Buy, Staples, WalMart, Target.....
