SOS, PC too dirty

By on November 14, 2014

A customer of mine called me because his FOXCONN PC was having a malfunction. When I got to his home I straight away opened the PC. It was too easy; only two screws were holding the lateral cover of the chassis. Now look what I saw.

As you can see in the photos above this PC was really asking for SOS. A preventive maintenance was done to all the parts and the lubrication was taken into consideration too. Preventive software such as: Scandisk, Disk Defrag and One Click Maintenance (from TuneUp Utilities) were run to improve the performance of this PC.


Conclusions: Most of the customers do not realize the importance of a preventive maintenance. It should be done every 6 months if you want your PC to work without much problem. Sometimes when the customers called, it’s already too late because at that time their PCs are out of order and no longer functioning.

    How long to clean the inside PC?

      Well, it takes about 1 hour if the Preventive Maintenance is done with excellent quality (to disassemble all the PC: SMPS, motherboard, UP, RAM memories, cabinet, etc; use thermal compound).
      Have a good day.

    I use my 3/4 HP DataVac all the time to clear out dust; it is actually a blower and not a vacuum at all, despite the name.

    Dust can really make your computer work bad... Nice Job.

    Ok Anwar Shiekh, my blower is the same you use, and I bought it in Amazon too.

    I recommend this tool 100%.

    Have a good day

    Thanks Humberto. Part of the problem is that computer, tv, and electronics repair shops don't advertise and tell people about the need for preventive maintenance. Here in the USA, I never see advertisements for repair shops on tv or radio.
