  • Dust -> Overheat -> Computer Freezing Up

    December 28, 2017 no comment

    A client had a Windows XP computer running a business critical app. This 9 year old PC kept freezing up recently.
    The problem was fixed by simply blowing up the dust on the CPU heat sink.
    We see similar problems a few times a year. Our suggestion is to avoid leaving your computer directly on the floor, especially on the carpet.
