Hi Didi

You are liable for any damaged caused to things or persons on Fixya, if you want for example tell the user to remove the heathsink and hoover it, stick to health and safety basic rules.

Tell them that the PC must be unplugged from power, and that they should not touch circuits.

I always suggest users to call a tech , and tell them that they can DIY, but at their risk.

If you tell them to hoover the inside, tell also them to use a small battery powered hoover, if they use their home hoover to near to the board they can s.uck in components and breack soldering joint.

Often you need to understand if the user has enough tech skills to do a repair job or not.

Personally I prefer to tell users that they should work with power cord not connected. If this is not possible, I tell them to call a tech, or to do a dangerous operation at their risk.

Hope this had been helpful.

Good luck!

    Anything that the factory say that should not be performed by the user, nearly everything.

    Always tell users DIY at your risk, that is the best thing to do.

    If they risk to get electrocuted, tell them that they should not do this or that and that they should call an engineer.

    If they risk to mess up their system or to damage their stuff, just tell them that there is a risk of damage, or data loss.
