My CPU's Alive

My CPU's been dusty for quite a time. Hence, I thought that she needed my soft touch to clean her. Haha. Yeah, I've been cleaning it but not truly intensively. I don't have the proper tools for that. I just used anything useful than. I'll teach you how to clean your crappy CPU. No. That's not aim of this post.

I'd done cleaning that boxy loveable thing when it was time to start it up again. All the parts are in one piece again. I started it up. Nothing fishy. Gone through the BIOS and a few moments before the boot screen.

Zap ( I can't write the sound LOL )

The monitor went blank and the CPU died. Damn. What happened? I tested everything to solve that. I started it again and the same thing happened again and again. Time flew by when I started to lose hope haha. I observed all the parts, sockets and everything. All was fine. They were where they should be. It seemed to be because of the power supply. But hey, I spotted something. One of my CPU Fan wire (black colour) was under the heatsink. Damn. How careless I was.

I removed it from there and...VOILA! It worked. (Yeah, for sure you blockhead) So, that's all. Nothing more LOL.

Moral : Work carefully haha.

p.s : That sucks

Oh boy, it does pay to take care when replacing PC hardware. I can't remember where I read it, but some guy's computer all of a sudden stopped working one day. He had no idea why. Turns out a spider had gotten in between the CPU and HS. Once he removed it, the thing was working fine again. However, the spider wasn't in very good shape.

I just recently did an article about stopping that buzzing noise in your PC. In involves cleaning fans and and heat sinks. Feel free to check it out :).
