Another one bites the dust

Another one bites the dust? No, not this time.
This is a before/after shot of the inside of the air intake in a laptop. It might not be noticable from the outside, but it was causing problems on the inside. The laptop would work fine if you just used Facebook or Google. But as soon as any advanced processing was done the laptop would shutdown. Without sufficient airflow the processor inside quickly overheats. The laptop shuts down because if it didn’t the whole thing would catch fire.
Not the easiest of repairs but the laptop worked fine once complete.
The sad thing is that most other computer shops would just tell you the computer is too old and start trying to sell you a new one. If you get told that, bring it in for a free quote. You might be surprised.
