Packard bell PC with Mother board mcp73vt-pm dies..

Had this problem with my Packard Bell desktop PC, got it checked at PC world and finally it was diagnosed that the Mother board has died..... Power unit working well , fan also works fine..

A quick peek inside my CPU showed that there has been a lot of dust in the cooler and the fan unit.. which accumulated over the couple of years,I am assuming that it might have created a static and had the MOBO heated and shorted.

An other useful indicator to watch out is there have been any memory dumps going on for a period of time...

So all Packard Bell users or as a matter of fact all the PC users make sure that there is no dust accumulation inside your pcs as it might kill your mother board due to static build or by shorting or overheating.....

This simple step of cleaning your CPU will definitely avoid your MOBO s sudden death.. and could potentially save you anything from 150 to 300 Pounds.... Which might get you a nice gadget to play with....

Wise users clean the dust from inside their towers several times per year.

Possibly, but more likely (as you also suspect) it overheated. Cleaning the inside "several times per year" is a little overkill (unless you're in an extremely dusty environment), but necessary cleaning at least once a year in a normal environment is pretty much par.
