It’s such a pain when you’re in the middle of doing something and all of a sudden the pc starts acting up. I was just in the middle of editing a video, toward the end actually when BAM! blue screen. Bummer. I made a few calls to the local Onsite computer repairs companies and they all had different solutions. One said to check for dust, as it was electrically conductive. First I’ve heard of it, but when the computer case was opened it was indeed choked with dust. Perhaps due to sitting on the floor, along with the cat….
Even though the dust may have contributed to it, removing it did not fix the bang that came from the pc box. The computer troubleshooters were great, but it did involve replacing the power supply. Lesson learned…..keep it clean!
