Have You Got a Dusty Motherboard?

Dusty motherboard

 

 

 

 

 

Are you having trouble with your PC?

Is it refusing to run or reboot even though it’s getting power?

This was a problem presented to use by a client recently. The power input was good, but the PC just refused to come to life.

After removing the cover to the case the problem became clear. The motherboard was dusty.

After blowing out the dust, re-seating the memory and video card, the PC burst into life without a problem.

It’s a simple piece of maintenance, but one that often gets forgotten about. Make sure you add a motherboard check into your regular PC care plan and make sure dust doesn’t mess up your day.
