My computer's fan was misbehaving.

I vacuummed the hell out of it and gave it a good smackin.
It cried and I had to send it to it's room.

But the lesson has been learned. And all is well.

Stupid dust

Mine had the same problem but before I realized it my motherboard died. Then my screen hinge cracked, about 6 months later. They told me to update the bios to help the fan (or something) but when they'd given me the new motherboard they'd done something to block that. Luckily I was still under warranty, and when they replaced the screen they replaced my keyboard and my heatsink. Now that my warranty's almost up you bet I'll be vacuuming regularly.

Today I was working on this kid's giant desktop and it was so nasty and dusty I took it into the shop to blow out. A wood chip about 3 inches long came out of one of his fans. Also, this weird powder kept coming out and it smelled suspiciously like instant coffee.
