Clean the Fan – Spring Cleaning for Computers

Well it’s drawing near to the end of spring here in Australia, and the weather is warming up. With this increase in temperature our technicians have been called to a number of jobs where computers (which are several years old) are just randomly shutting down. Most of these cases have been solved by removing the side case of the computer and blowing out the inside of the case with a can of air or an air compressor.

This is a rather simple task on a desktop, but when it comes to a laptop, it can be slightly more challenging. Here is a video on how to a) do it and b) how hard it is.
