No reason for them to be used yet.
Try canned air on the interior and apply new CPU heatsink compound. (How is on the web today so I pause here.) Figure 10 bucks or less?
Hello, I have an old Acer Aspire M1640 desktop that I did not use anymore and was thinking of giving it to my little cousin who could use it to play on thE internet or whatever and I found it in a corner collecting dust and after I gave it a good wipe down I turned it on, saved whatever I needed and then system restored it. After the restore it was working surprisingly fast and I downloaded chrome and added the Adblock extension. After around 5 minutes it got BSOD and said it was the Hardware so after a little research I concluded it might be a loose Hardrive cable and I opened it up and there was ALOT of dust and there also were a bunch of wired unplugged with P4, P6, P9 etc. written on them. Can anyone help me and tell me if this is normal and how I could possibly fix the desktop to not get BSOD anymore hopefully ? Thanks
