|Thank you. FWIW that is very good advice. My friend's computer is not on the floor, but she is 88 and has never opened the case. She finally believed me when--even though deaf--she could hear the fans trying to get through the dust. I've tried to convince her not to snack at the computer, but without success. |
My own computer is on a low table near the floor as I have no other place to put it, but I clean the fans and dust it once a week or so. If I can hear them turning, I know my expensive vacuum needs a cleaning, including swabbing off the fan blades. I live in a very dusty area, and have cats, so everything here gets regular Dust-Off, including the keyboard.
